I love it. I've been wasting two weeks and 2000 words just
to say those 5. Mind if I steal them (with proper attribution,
of course)?

Ok, in one sense you know I agree - honest assesments are neccesary, and my
balking at truth will not make the facts dissapear. We agree.

IMHO, brutality is an entropic meme. Cave man, animal in quality, brutish
behavior, not workign by reason, etc, etc...

The thing is, being brutal in a mean spirited sort of way that betrays an
underlying emotional motive, no one wants to admit that.
