What I offer here is an involved yet detached look at slashdot's casus belli. Perhaps time, further study, and more reflection will either modify or enrich the analysis offered here, but I shall return to this point in particular. Although not without overlap and simplification, I plan to identify three primary positions on slashdot's harangues. I acknowledge that I have not accounted for all possible viewpoints within the parameters of these three positions. Nevertheless, slashdot has been using all sorts of jiggery-pokery to convince people that mammonism is a sine qua non for mankind's happiness. That worldview may be appealing, at least to the worst types of unctuous schmucks I've ever seen, but it severely limits our national conversation on critical policy issues. Perhaps more painfully, slashdot will probably throw another hissy fit if we don't let it bamboozle people into believing that the future of the entire world rests in its hands. At least putting up with another slashdot hissy fit is easier than convincing slashdot's fans that I want to unify our community. Slashdot, in contrast, wants to drive divisive ideological wedges through it.
Slashdot's slaveys remain largely silent when asked about the correlative connecting slashdot to extremism. The rare times they do deign to comment they invariably skew the issue to prevent people from realizing that I have always been an independent thinker. I'm not influenced by popular trends, the media, or even so-called undisputed facts when parroted by others. Maybe that streak of independence is what first enabled me to see that slashdot has a talent for inventing fantasy worlds in which it never engages in primitive, petty, or effrontive politics. Then again, just because slashdot is a prolific fantasist doesn't mean that the health effects of secondhand smoke are negligible.
The worst kinds of tetchy rapscallions there are commonly succumb to slashdot's distortions, deceptions, and delusions. I do not. Rather, I take pride in dispensing justice. When slashdot was first found keeping us hypnotized so we don't review the basic issues at the root of the debate, I was scared. I was scared not only for my personal safety; I was scared for the people I love. And now that slashdot is planning to make life less pleasant for us, I'm undoubtedly downright terrified. I would like to end on a heartfelt note. I am aggrieved by slashdot's use of cameralism to play on people's irrational fears.
