Sorry, what straw man?

I agree; what straw man? he was merely attacking the opinion of this one man, in no way misrepresenting it and not claiming it to be indicative of an entire group.

Agreed. Fuck Augustino.

Because Taoists are not trying to dominate the government and use it to proselytize to us.

See Nonstamp's Voltron argument. It answers this question.

Interesting, I ran into your videos on YouTube and must say truly did enjoy them. Normally I wouldn't bother with more than a thank you, but this question hit home since Taoism is a cornerstone of my life. I figured I'd add a little history to the discussion.

Aye, but the Yellow Scarves Rebellion was more political than religious. The idea is that many of the people who followed the Yellow Scarves were not well-versed in the religious teachings, hence their comparatively violent and extreme actions: their leader Zhang Jiao died before he could explain Taoism thoroughly to his followers. Instead they reacted to the sociopolitical problems of the time (government corruption, widespread famine, many parts of China were unable to express their concerns to the Emperor as they were droned out by corrupt officials and a bureaucracy that favored larger, mostly Northern cities).
