In which I step back from the edge…

July 27, 2020

Yeah. Okay. I went somewhat over the top with my most recent post. I actually do care if people who are opposed to me live or die. The questions to which I responded remain intellectually dishonest. It’s just that there was probably a better way to respond.

What brought on this realization? Two things. Time to think and a post on Old NFO’s blog. Of particular note are two links he included. Here’s the first. This is the second. Though both articles arguably serve to paint the protester (the man who was shot and killed) in a perhaps unrealistic light, that is not my concern. Rather, my concern is that both of the articles seem to miss the implications of Americans shooting Americans over differences in political ideologies. It is possible that this sort of thing could end reasonably well. There is also the very real possibility that it could end very, very badly.

I’m going to try to do what I’ve been urging people to do and step away from the edge. For the little that it is worth, I encourage you to do the same.
