No Difference

There’s absolutely no difference between

A) young kids who see problems in the US and react to them by praising the Cuban revolution and sporting Che Guevara T-shirts

and

B) retirees who see problems in the US and react to them by praising the Russian and the Chinese authoritarianism and becoming fans of Putin.

I feel compassion for both groups but don’t find either capable of offering valuable discussion partners to me. If you are so abject that you worship the people who exist to spit on you, I shouldn’t be forced to witness the scenes of your self-abasement.

    1. Group B is sending me emails and leaving comments on the blog daily. We had two already today. (See in the Putin update post I published the other day).
