The refusal to optimize on one dimension is in general a good policy.   And illustrating the interchangeability of symbols in a structural argument is also a good thing.   A better way to argue though, which is not to boil the ocean but simply to say, "Instances are of no interest to me, let's talk about the class."

The nationalists and demagogues refuse to argue their general point, and instead rely on preemptively registered ontologies to persuade.
