Nobody died and made me king

Brian Holtz has left a new comment on the post "For Your Own Good":

1) Bzzzt. No integer, no credit. You either have the intellectual courage to face the consequences of your position, or not.

2) If your perspective depends on a) wishing away the fact that the tragedy of the commons constitutes aggression, and b) pretending that none of us should feel we have any stake in the public goods that we've financed, well, then, thanks for confirming that such a self-marginalized perspective will rightly continue to have zero influence on public policy.

3) Nobody died and made me king of immigration policy, and that's obviously why I can posit the brute fact of my premise in question 3 without assuming the total moral responsibility for it that you fantasize I should have.
