DC 9/11: Time of Crisis (2003) (part 1 of 2)
Anyone who knows me will say I’m about the least political person on the planet. However, that’s not entirely accurate. I do have political beliefs, and strong ones at that. I just choose not to talk about them. Because arguing about politics, as everybody knows, is a complete and utter waste of time. I mean, have you ever seen a political argument actually change anybody’s mind? “Hey, you’re right! I should totally be a Republican, after all!”
Much like religious beliefs, political beliefs are so deeply held—and so often for completely illogical reasons—that they can form the core of a person’s identity. But unlike religious beliefs, it’s somehow become okay to call someone an idiot and a moron for their political leanings. And that’s why I tend to stay away from all discussion of politics, either online or off.
