But first, let's give credit where it's due. Platypus broke new ground by denying everything, (including its denial!). This sent the stodgy, dead left -- which, being dead had reached a point of irretrievable stodginess -- into paroxysms of defense. Only Platypus had the courage to ferret out the secret Taliban-love behind left critiques of drone attacks.
Only Playtpus had the post-left cajones to call out Tariq Ali for saying things he didn't say (but, his words were unacceptably open to Taliban/al Q/Hezbollah loving interpretation and so...).
But Platypus has reached its limit. It's time to post the post beyond what's post and go beyond Platypus into a denial of the denial.
It's time, in other words, for Capybara!
Capybara stands for five things:
1.) Going beyond categories, even as the rodent which inspired our name goes beyond the usual categories of "rodent" and "non-rodent."
3.) Item Number three
4.) The other thing.
5.) There is no fifth principle.
The Left Is Dead! The Post-Left Is Dead! Long Live Whatever Comes After That Other Thing Which Preceded Us!
