    This is a dopey poll, as it depends on the subject of the post that one is responding to.

    I have answered that already in your poll, about 80%, that is a FACT, thus a "pragmatic" response to your poll question was given. If their is ONE "public" response to your dopey poll, then it MUST have been mine. Duh.

    Thank you.

    It's possible other people thought the same thing, so it might have helped to clear things up.

    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    As opposed to fueled by ideology? Is that what this means?

    There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers

    Re: What Percent of Your Ideas Are Pragmatic?

    I'd say about 75% of them. I am guided by my ideology, but when ideology doesn't provide an answer that I think will work in the real world, I go with the closest thing that will.
