John --

Great essay... thanks for replying at such length!

I'm going to decline your (perhaps rhetorical) invitation to provide
a devils-advocate counter-argument, because I'm not the right person to
do so; I am far too liberal in my own views to be a fair representative
of the "dark side".  In any case, I was asking more for an education
(which you have generously provided) than an argument.
