You are fatuous, feckless, gauche nihilists: vacuous xenophobes all, existing outside known paradigms, parabolas or acceptable parameters; nonsectarian, non-teetotaling totalitarians; supercilious, oligarchs, who can only maintain respiration by unctuously attempting to subjugate the homogeneously diffident.
