Ok. I understand that you don't want to continue this conversation with the way it's going right now. So let's stop.

Please understand though that there is a very good chance that you and I both see these topics very differently (and that's why we are very much in disagreement right now) and it never was my deliberate intention and it will never be my deliberate intention to back you into a rhetorical corner. I was just bringing up examples of behavior that I find have very concerning implications.

Lastly, and I mean this in all seriousness, I don't mean to talk about pacifism in a "holier than thou" kind of way and if I ever have or ever do come across that way, I apologize, point it out, and I'll correct the behavior. I use it as a lens, a way to view the world and strive for better goals.

If you do ever want to talk about these things down the road, let me know. Hopefully by that time we'll both be in a better communicative mindset.

Have a good night.
