Thank you, no. I have a life to live. And part of it is not to follow the preachings of sanctimonious know-it-alls who believe there is only one side to an issue and everyone ought to get with the program and push it. Again, thanks, but indoctrination was bad when done by Mao and it is bad now.

So I’ll give everyone here who liked this article my own, one, completely unasked-for piece of advice. Before you go off to save the world, subscribe to two newspapers (or get them on-line — whatever). One should be a liberal one, say the New York Times or Washington Post, or maybe (gasp!) go further left to the Huffington Post or something. The other should be a conservative one, say the Wall Street Journal. Read both of them, every day, for a couple of months, especially the full op-ed pages. Try it. It won’t kill you. Then check carefully to see if your views might have moderated. Just a tad.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?
