You can declare victory all you want; clearly none has been acheived [sic].
Not so; you've very
clearly got the losing end of the argument in your exchanges with Locutus
if no one else. Among other things he's showing a great deal more familiarity with and reliance upon what actually occurred
in the drama and how the character behaved, while you continue to resort to generalizations drawn from superficial comparisons to real-world events to draw conclusions about how the character "ought" to be viewed. Evidence trumps all else in this kind of argument, and the most relevant evidence is what was in the story.
