The Closed-Mindedness of Open-Mindedness

It is a plague, a plague that was greater than the “hope and change” of 2008; greater still than the “four more years” of 2012. Let us spare ourselves the embarrassment of partisan dribble and become better than the dividing political lines that face us and shake hands with those whose views hate with fervor. It would be nice if everyone got along. But we do get along, too well in fact. We’ve gotten along so well we’ve disguised our contempt against others as tolerance. In some cases, we’ve even forgotten what’s right and wrong and stand on nothing more than the mushy quicksand of tolerance and multiculturalism.
