It’s always interesting to see which words and images people choose to illustrate their positions.
The slipperiest parts tend to be imagery, analogue, and history. Do any of those mean what the speaker thinks they mean?
More subtly, it’s worth mulling over the verbs and attributions. Did anyone cause something to happen, or did events simply “occur” as if by force majeure? Did or does anyone have a choice in the matter? Is anyone to praise to to blame?
