Rules and Other Obstacles

"Your critics would argue that the view you just expressed leaves little room for a productive discussion on how to make it better."

"What do you mean, better? It is fine just they way it is."

The lyrics went something like "You're so vain, you probably think this song is about you."

Welcome to humanity and the point of this missive. The style is purposely not declarative and avoids instances to prevent a diversion from the level of abstraction intended.

A common tactic in intellectual warfare is forcing the opposition to specify and declare so as to discuss an instance rather than the principle. One more in a plethora of coercion tactics.

"So how does one effectively disarm this type of disruptor?"
