I’m always curious about the way opinions tend to come in matching sets.
You know what I mean?
Some sort of fashionista somewhere seems to dictate that you can’t wear the wrong viewpoints together and if you do you’re socially invisible. For example, you can’t care about deforestation and not believe in manmade global warming, or you can’t support public healthcare and not accept Big Government is good. You can’t be ‘skeptical’ about climate change without also thinking nuclear power and GM food are just great and bashing the establishment as ‘stupid lefties’.
Why is this? is it good? is it even sane? I mean whatever happened to taking each case on its merits?
Are there any people out there who don’t think centralised government is great, but also don’t want to see everyone toting a gun?
Anyone who is an oldstyle leftie but still thinks Manmade Global Warming could be junk science?
Anyone who’s a climate skeptic who doesn’t have insanely reactionary and out of date politics and an atavistic idea that Socialists actually have power and run things?
Anyone? If not, then I truly despair….
