I never have understood how believing in a platform is "close-minded"--as so many of the Sociocrats like to put it. Yeah, I think your platform sucks, and just because YOU don't like that, it does not make ME "close-minded." You think mine sucks--so, by your own standards (oh no, not the changing standards thing again) you would have to be "close-minded" too.
1960's Leftist--remember the drug pushing, tree hugging, draft-dodging hippies? LOL..
"Either way, you're paranoid..."
Did I say anything about fear? Once again, just because I believe in a set, steady, and stable set of values, it does not make me paranoid by any means.
Good luck trying to wake up from La-La Dreamy Land and making that first step into the glorious sunlight of common sense and practicality. Until then, keep your fantasizing to a minimum.
