Cline: "The Scarecrow of Violent Language"

Fantastic post from Edward Cline related to the left's attempts to equate the opposition to statism with psychosis - a topic I also posted about here.

you know i don't think determinism as ed cline prescribes in the article is what is underlying this outrage by the left. Those who want to place the blame exclusively, or principally, with the speaker are not, however, implicitly deterministic. It is a valid observation that people can be aroused to act irrationally. Blaming the speaker for making this use of those people is a proper blame, without implying deterministic control.
