In Criticism the alternative choice must be defended.
In critique the alternative choice must be obscured.
The purpose of Criticism is to identify truth. The purpose of Critique is obscurantism: complex deception.
Critique is deception. Control by deception using obscurantism.
We forgo our opportunity for violence in exchange for pursuit of the truth.
However if the opposition is not equally engaged in the pursuit of the truth, then we need not forgo the honesty of violence just to tolerate acts if deception.
