I am not sure I fully understand the author's point, but it was
certainly interesting, and the "force charity" line is right on the
I am not sure we should avoid historical analogies just because they
reference religious history --- the analogy seemed reasonable, meaning
he didn't go out of his way to reference religious history, but rather
it made sense to the author. I would hate to think that people can't
express themselves in that way.
The reference to "Ingres" was surprising because we rarely hear of
migrations to Ingres. I personally found the "Why not Ingres" line
humorous. (OK, I am a bad boy.) ;-)
