Let’s see if I’ve got this right. I’m accused of hatred if I hold those in elected office to the same standards of accountability across the board, regardless of the R or D following their names. I am considered a hater if I am morally, philosophically, and intellectually consistent. If I don’t conflate government and society as being the same thing, then I hate the US. I’m full of hatred if my opposition to war, governmental abuse, and corruption isn’t contingent upon *who* is in office. If I’m not willing to compromise my integrity and humanity for political aims, then I’m full of hate. Well, if that’s what constitutes a hater these days, then SIGN ME UP!!!
“Folks, it’s time to evolve. That’s why we’re troubled. You know why our institutions are failing us, the church, the state, everything’s failing? It’s because, um – they’re no longer relevant. We’re supposed to keep evolving. Evolution did not end with us growing opposable thumbs. You do know that, right?”
― Bill Hicks
