...And bearing in mind my comment on the previous page, if the other guys are dead set on ethnic cleansing, it's inappropriate to respond with anything short of rifle fire. Civility assumes neighbors who approach you in good faith.

It's a balance. In a vacuum, I agree that you should still treat your adversaries with respect, but it's a two-way street. Like you say, there are situations in which the extension of anything less than amplified hostility in return is disgraceful.

My main thesis in all this is that too often inhuman actions are urged to be excused under the auspices of decorum, and that on its surface, there's something deeply wrong to that. Decorum is what you do when there aren't stakes.
