aristotle and germany

My Sloth! and the Laodiceans! - a deadly mix ! I've been turning over a potential post in my mind - inspired by one of them, but something seems to get in the way every time. This post for example, which reminded me of Aristotle's bit about contary predications only going through for the same object if the object is not actual (or something like that - I'm too lazy to look it up now) In short, on good metaphysical authority, there's no actual object that instantiates both prussian militarism and austrian cuddliness.
