They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
This is ANZAC Day.

A few months ago, Arnold Kling wrote this article at Tech Central Station discussing the difference between what he calls Type C and Type M arguments.
Briefly put, Type C arguments discuss the consequences of an action: X is a bad idea, because if you do that, Y will happen. Type M arguments, on the other hand, relate to the motives behind the action: X is a bad thing because you're only doing it to get Z.
It's a very useful categorisation. It's a good article, too. Go read.
There's a further discussion here. The Lefties in the comments just don't get it. To them, it's just the Right beating them up again.
And it's that sort of nonsense from the Left that has pushed me hard into the center, and it's why I treasure more than ever any rational voice from that sector of Polispace. Roger Simon, Michael Totten, Jennifer and other such luminaries. Their voices are sadly few.
