I have posted the next section in the paper even though there was still much good discussion going on in the last section.
This part deals with the misuse of history to suit the ends of emergent. I think it is one of the most important sections of the paper that deserves much more attention than I was able to give it... but the first commentor told me it was the weakest part so far!
I am finding that discussions and comments are making the central issues much clearer in my mind.
