The Anti-Broder Center Redux
Over at Balloon Juice, E.D. does some ‘splainin’ about his worldview. I must say that it’s one of my favorite pieces ever from our humble webmaster. A brief taste:
Some issues are divided into sides that many of us would rather not be on. Artificial opposites are manufactured and if we don’t hop on one bus or the other we must be squishy moderates, trying to please everyone. We have all sorts of false dualisms in our society. We have to be Republican or Democrat; we have to be liberal or conservative; we have to be pro-choice or anti-abortion. Well even my three year old understands what a false choice is: “do you want peas or carrots” almost inevitably turns into “neither, I want goldfish crackers.”
Earlier: E.D. and I discussed the need for an Anti-Broder Centrism.
