Very enlightening discussion
I would only add this thought: that as enlightening as these articulate posts all are, there is an additional element to real progress toward the beautiful ideal put forth, it is time. In time we will move closer to this ideal, I'm confident. I know that that reality is not fair, but we are going in the right direction. I also know that conservatives hold us back from faster progress, but please have mercy on them. When I read posts as smart as yours, I worry that you will become frustrated because reality can be unkind to a priori rigor.
