Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
JakeS identified ValentinD's ideology or something that consists of the absence of the same.
ValentinD clearly stated that he never discussed himself.
HOW can JakeS come up with conclusions about his set of values?

Because Val has a poor memory of previous discussions on the subject. He has, in fact, described his political philosophy in great detail before.

Now, that was some time ago, and it is possible that he has change his political philosophy since then. But it doesn't sound like it has changed in any way that is germane to this discussion.

JakeS draws back on values, a mindset, an ideology possibly adopted from other people.
How can he do that?

Because I have sufficient political schooling to work back from a set of policy recommendations to the principles that underpin them (or don't, as the case may be).

JakeS is acknowledges that a spirit realm that doesn't provide evidence for consistent effects DOES NOT EXIST.

No, I'm saying that it doesn't explain anything. Because if it did explain something, it would produce consistent effects.

But he identifies ValentinD's "spirit realm (expressing in values etc) without any clear evidence.

Not so. Val has previously made extensive policy recommendations. You may have forgotten, which is of course not a crime, but you participated in some of those threads as well.
