I totally agree.
I have no hope of convincing Horowitz to change his ways. On this list, I even once reminded him to re-read his own book (from the 60s) The Free World Colossus. He was predictably unmoved.
The point is to answer the ad for the benefit of others who are still in the process of making up their minds about the issues.
A fun thing to do by way of answering Horowitz would be to use material from The Free World Colossus. It's actually a pretty good critique of Cold War anticommunism.
