If I believed "maintaining the countryside is more desirable than helping people" that would make me appear inhumane and my opinions could be rejected because of my monstrous nature.
It's not that I object to such an attack because it is, or could be in any way, effective. I object to it because it's childish. It happens a lot on this forum from the UK lefties.
"You say this and that means you think that and therefor you are a monster!"
It's playground stuff. I would prefer a more grown up approach.
