They hate us for our unicorns

Define “not unicorns” to be certain things we don’t like about the politics of Country B, and only those things.
Declare that because “unicorns” as we have defined the term is perfectly coherent, a philosophy of government which pursues unicorns is perfectly coherent.
Declare that mass murder committed in Country A is not the result of pursuit of unicorns, even though the people committing the mass murder explicitly rationalize it by appealing to the pursuit-of-unicorns principle.
Isn’t nominalism fun?
