Subject: RE: BS: Occupy Wall Street; The 99%
There is one particular simile that is universally (particularly here on mudcat) reviled as "over the top" and inflammatory and the last refuge of those without cogent arguments.

I will simply ask everyone whether there is a difference between burning thousands of books and dumping thousands of books into a wet dumpster.

Please explain the difference. Consequentialist and Categorical arguments are acceptable. Proceed please....
