That's not "to make things important", it's to denote terms of art. Who ever said "discussion of policy must end"? Hint: Not me. The problem is the assumption that there exists no way to discuss policy except by asserting that everything is already bad or will shortly become bad. What if... What if there was an alternative to the Chicken Little dance? I'm better than this, and you're reading me wrong in a way that makes literally no sense. I'm officially warning you: Keep this up and I will make you a mod. I am not kidding.
