CWolf is not a standard conservative.
Well, when you consider it in the context of your comment, repeated below, it’s irrelevant whether it’s a dressing room or killing 5 million human beings. That’s just scale of suck. If effectiveness is the only measure, to the point we dispense with decency, character, integrity and responsibility then Hitler certainly is a valid comparison. I don’t think Trump is as effective a leader as Hitler was though, far, far less successful.
Effectiveness must be a factor in a fit leader, but it cannot be a single factor, otherwise you end up with this kind of comparison. If it’s uncomfortable to you, then perhaps other factors are necessary. I propose J.Anderson’s “virtue.”
That’s a terrible definition of being “fit to govern.” And no, virtue does not guarantee fitness to lead; but I believe that it’s a key factor in fitness to lead.
Only a difference, a vast difference, in the scale of the crime. That doesn’t excuse the smaller thing, and being “smaller” does not mean it is a “small” thing. I find it rather despicable.
Please, don’t use that term with CWolf. No actual minarchist would ever defend this.
