I think you should cut me some slack on this article of mine:
Block, Walter E. 2016. Cut Trump Some Slack: Threats; and Donald Trump. July 12;
I did say, in it, this:
"It also transpires that the police (hopefully private..."
Surely, this "mad bomber" is a terrorist. In the context of the article, this terrorist was not created by government. I am as firm a supporter as you are of Ron Paul's "blowback" theory. Yes, the US government created many terrorists with its overseas adventures. But not every short op ed piece can cover every issue. You are criticizing me in your response to this op ed of mine not for what I said, but for what I didn't say. That's unfair, I think. By the way, in your critique of this short essay of mine, and in many, many excellent publications of yours, you neglected to opposed the slavery that existed until 1865. Nor did you mention the horrors perpetrated by Hitler, Pol Pot, Mao, Stalin. You also overlooked the negative effects of cancer, MS, heart disease. Would it be proper of me to criticize you for not always mentioning these episodes and many, many others? Of course not. But, you did something similar with me.
