Hi Benjamin Mercer You are right, it does not have to be balanced.
Salma Sitara

Well, I thank you for taking the time to respond.

I come from, and have been educated in, a tradition which assumes that politics is division by definition. I come from that school of thought which says that polemics and iconoclasm are, when presented properly and argued for with rigour and a whole-hearted embrace of facts, good things in and of themselves.

So I am not much interested in the argument that people must be presented with thorns in an otherwise rosey, bipartisan narrative.

I think, and I can support my thoughts with evidence, that Clinton is spectacularly corrupt and represents the worst of the privileged, entitled political class.

If people read my arguments — based as they are on the specifics of foreign and domestic policy — and conclude that I am some sort of sexist, misogynistic pig, that is of course their right. Just as it is my right to say that those people demonstrate, by their conclusions, illiteracy and stupidity.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
