comment 'too dangerous to let live' or 'too dangerous to be let live'?
@chasly from UK: Interesting. Thank you for the reference. This however is different from "to be let exist", where we have two bare infinitives in a row. Your citation sounds less strange to my ears, although I believe that contemporary grammar accepts only "allowed" instead of "let".

comment Using “neither” without “nor”
Why is "but" needed in your second alternative? It sounds a lot more natural without it.
