If I could be a nazi about your use of sayings:
"Begging the question" doesn't mean what you think it means.
This is an example of the logical fallacy of begging the question:
"I hate jews... well, because they're jews!".
See, there's a circular reasoning which begs the question.
If you use "begs the question" as you have in your article then you are
using it incorrectly.
