Ok, then I'll use another argument I have used with some Progressives. They can't process certain ideas of information. They just can't discern similarities and differences but make things all the same.
“Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the Government’s purposes are beneficent. Men born to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their liberty by evil-minded rulers. The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding.” — James Madison
