But Wait, There's More!

Apparently my comments on Neither Liberty Nor Safety trump the mistakes I made in the original post.

It's a pretty interesting debate and set of alterations going on down there, and I think I'll do a couple of more posts based on 'em.

So read 'em.

That is all.

I think the terms you laid out at the end of your last comment make for a solid description of the attempt you want to make and that I wasn't really furthering, but would like to.

It goes like:
People create logics (I like the plural to imply a disunity of Logic the brand name) through which they understand the world. If we disagree with the logics that lead to certain actions (or are produced post-hoc to explain them), we can't effectively change hearts and minds by just explaining why the actions themselves are irrational (for examples of this strategy, see my previous comments on the original post), but we have to engage with the logics that people use to make those [horrendous] actions sensible.

And then we have to "debunk /trump" them, as you say. I'm down for Round Zwei, let's go.
