Hillary Clinton has recently blamed Pres. Obama for the rise of jihadis in the Middle East and I was really annoyed with this comment:
"Great nations need organizing principles, and 'Don't do stupid stuff' is not an organizing principle," she said referring to an Obama slogan.
I think Aristotle has a good reply to this nonsense:
"Our discussion will be adequate if it has as much clearness as the subject-matter admits of, for precision is not to be sought for alike in all discussions, any more than in all the products of the crafts." Nicomathean Ethics, Bk. 1, section 3.
