The flaming town, the wasted field;
Then rushed to meet the insulting foe;
They took the spear, - but left the shield.”
Please do a post on The Turgid Tautology of Absolutism one of these days.
No one could do better that to post a copy of Plato's "Parmenides"
On the reason for Absolutism's turgidity, for "absolutes" belong only to the world of "forms" (each "form" with its' own unique "horizon" in our "sensible" world)ergo 1 cannot equal "1", for if it did, it would be "2".

"Pleasant forms of hypocrisy -- it used to be called 'politeness' -- are vastly preferable to rudely aggressive forms of sincerity. If it weren't for hypocrisy, it would not be possible to have any society at all. We'd all be living in the jungle."~ Medusa de Prave
