Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
If you described a right-winger as uncaring of justice, would this be an insult? No, it would be a tautology. Describing magical thinkers ("intuitionists") as mentally handicapped is not an insult, it's a tautology. None of this is "my way of seeing the world", what it is is FACT. Verifiable and documented.

And I find YOUR way of seeing the world, and especially your way of degrading documented facts to the status of mere opinion, to be insulting in the extreme. What does it say about you if you claim to care so much about insults yet you freely offer them to others? It says you're a liar and a hypocrite. But then that's the problem with being an intellectual relativist, it's an inherently hypocritical point of view. Because it's self-contradictory nonsense and the mere pretense that it's meaningful is automatically a lie.

You might also like to consider your double standard of liking a diary I wrote with the express goal of destroying lies and prevarication, of destroying the cornucopians' and marketroids' "way of seeing the world" and then of whining and complaining when I turn around and do the same thing to your friends. You don't get to use truth selectively, as a weapon aimed only at your enemies. And if you choose to then don't expect me to be so shallow.
