Important qualification

My calling Putin’s clique “vampires” is a metaphor, not a substantial judgement. I do not mean to say that any of those people are essentially unhuman; no, they are as human as you and I, and I am not in the least a better human than they are. It is not their essence or nature that are vampirical but their actions and worldview. Whenever I call someone a bad name, it should be taken to apply primarily to their deeds or philosophy.
