"...but everything I've said still applies, so your objections seem rooted in judgement of the character in your example rather than an objection to my analysis, yet you still seem to present it as an objection to my analysis." I suppose it can seem that way, but I think I was just justifying for myself why subjectivity is annoying. That "best" is implied in the subjective context and a perversion of the subjective only exists outside the subjective. I think the definition of best must be restricted to the subjective only under certain contexts; and this context weighted against the objective best. Ack.
