I’ve just noticed that I’ve gradually stopped taking people’s political opinions seriously — well, those of people who tell me they’re liberal or conservative anyway. The terms have become such team flags that I can’t help thinking that most people who wave them are either A. Saying exactly what their parents taught them, because they’re sponges, or B. Saying the exact opposite of what their parents taught them, because they’re rebels without a clue.
Just show me the facts. And if there aren’t enough facts available for me to make up my mind, and you want to call me a pussy or a waffler or whatever, then change your team shirt, it’s smelly with dribble.
