The self-congratulation, indeed hubris of the religious apologist, meaning in this case the Christian branch of the benighted Abrahamic Tradition, is unsurprising! The only thing that saved Christianity from its own provincialism was a heavy infusion of the ideas of the  thinkers of Greece and Rome, that you hold in your sovereign contempt! Without that you would still be torturing and then burning heretics like Giordano Bruno.  Or just silencing scientists like Galileo. Thomas Aquinas’ model was Aristotle.

And as for this fragrant bon mot‘…neoliberalism has emotionalised and thus de-politicised its critics.’  Read Wendy Brown’s ‘Undoing the Demos: Neo-Liberalism’s Stealth Revolution’ for one of the most devastating critiques of your sacred, untouchable  Neo-Liberal Economic Theology:

Or read ‘Hayek : The Good, the Bad ,the Ugly’

Rootless cosmopolitan,down at heels intellectual;would be writer. 'Polemic is a discourse of conflict, whose effect depends on a delicate balance between the requirements of truth and the enticements of anger, the duty to argue and the zest to inflame. Its rhetoric allows, even enforces, a certain figurative licence. Like epitaphs in Johnson’s adage, it is not under oath.'
