But with the militants now being the only party that chooses to express patriotism, "the round" goes to them and my original claim is supported. Alas.
The only reason "the round" goes to them is that you concede it.
You say you disagree with patriotism = militarism, and yet you're the one who first objected to UESPA's "sissy, non-patriotic" name, and now you're the one insisting that because I refuse to dignify the argument (in no small part because I don't want to turn this into a TNZ thread), that your claim is supported. Why you have so much invested in supporting a claim you say you don't agree with is beyond me.
