On the Naming of Names
Vaara has suggested that there should be an ongoing effort to gain the rhetorical initiative by renaming "wargasmoid"-types as "anti-peace," rather than simply pro-war, or more accurately anti-anti-war.
The fundamental problem with that suggestion, from my point of view, is that Vaara is a much nicer person than I am.
While I support his effort, I think that "anti-peace" is much too kind, and does not adequately convey the depths of my contempt for such people. Therefore, I hereby submit a list of alternative labels (keep in mind the important distinction between people who truly believe we need to go to war for various highly-principled reasons [whom I support], and those that blindly follow the President's lead while saying vile things about those that choose to think things out for themselves [whom I would like to deport]):
Anti-Roosevelt (both Teddy and Franklin)
Anti-majority rule with minority rights
Pro-winning the battle over yourself
Pro-Divine Right of Kings
Pro-Taxation without Representation
Pro-law of the jungle
Pro-flawed grouping of everything into "good" and "evil" categories with no continuum between the two
Anti-acknowledging the complexity of the world
