    Hmmm… ok. Now, with that established I wonder which advertising campaign will do the down and dirty work of equating the words “self” and “soul” to complete the attack? Or maybe the better question would be wonder whose advertising campaign it will be? Eh, no matter to me. Such bullhooey as this has been attacking sanity since Methuselah was in diapers. The original covert cultural war between the Abrahamic religions and those from a bit further to the east.

    But, all things considered, perhaps now is the best of times to revisit this ancient and apparently still ongoing cultural war. Gives a long, long historical precedent as to the NATURE of covert cultural warfare, the struggle of one major collective entity fighting with another for dominance and control of the human hosts.

    Oh, and as for the content of the article? IF those debating this had the good sense to engage these thoughts from the modern perspectives and experiences of mankind they’d realize these words are most easily fit into a framework borrowed from the concepts of what is called “OOPs” or Object Oriented Programming in the digital realms… self, person, soul… all of which are container classes each of which can carry a common functionality differentiated by domain and inheritance. But… that’s not likely to happen. Would totally ruin a fine argument.
