    I'm not taking it back. I thought everyone would recognized immediately
    without explanation that it was self-contradictory. Then I pointed out to you
    that it was self-contradictory. No reason to take it back at all: The
    statement refutes itself.

    The premise "some things are better than others" is a perfectly sound
    premise on which to base a philosophy. You may not agree with it, but it
    doesn't contradict itself. Why you consider it a "cop out" is a mystery to
    me. It's the founding principle of the MOQ that can't be denied without
    invoking it.
