sure…good people on both sides, right?
Noah Silverstein

Dear Noah Silverstein,

“Good people on both sides, right?”

Wrong, we know exactly how your mind sees the world in black and white: the only good people are the ones who mostly agree with you. Did I cogently summarize your binary world view?

Let’s delve into your binary world view a littler further:

The people who mostly agree with you are noble, upstanding, heroes, victims of hate, underdogs, beautiful, rich in love, lovely, wonderful, diverse, inclusive, soaring spirits, and everyone who mostly disagrees with you is a mass murder, pedophile, serial killer, nazi, kkk, anti-Semitic boogeyman, racist booger eating gummo, prejudiced hick, bigoted inbred, sister humping white supremacist, baby eating, godless monster, who should be punched in the face, imprisoned, have urine mixed with feces dumped on their head, stabbed, beaten and killed. This is the mindset of people who believe anyone who is politically right of Marx is an obvious fascist.

Nice worldview you got there Noah…. “You’re either with us or you’re a terrorist”, “Everyone like us is we, everyone else is they”, “Us versus them”, “Othering”.

“Good people on both sides, right?”

Sorry, Noah Silverstein, but the world isn’t as simple as orange-versus-turquoise tribalism.

Sincerely, Moses Jacobs, NYC.
