A proposal to be distributed outside the library of Alexandria:
A political argument has three obligations: i. that its internal components cohere together; ii. that the argument contributes to a political formation; iii. that the political formation both expresses, and feeds into, a wider political environment. By way of contrast, the auto-amputated arguments set out here realise only the first of these obligations – whilst relinquishing all responsibility for any other integrational project.
