Rdean made an interesting thread. Not so much for what it tells us about about the topic at hand, as much as it tells us about Rdean. He seems to feel all employers are Republican, that they hire only like minded people, that they are easlity manipulated, lazy, and cheap. His head holds so many contradictory opinions that it is a miracle he has only one head to hold them all. I am not going to go on a tear against him, as he is representative of a problem on both sides. My own views are not a lot better. I see many Democrats as petty spiteful folks who are more interested in kicking people down a peg and getting revenge for others good fortune than in making things better for people generally. Those who are not like this are dreamy folks who have too rosy a view of human nature, and either excuse or facilitate bad things happening because they don't understand the animal they are dealing with. Much as someone who thinks wolves are cute and cuddly and would be happy with a vegan diet. This won't work either. (Not to say Humans are wolves, but folks who ignore the fact that we are, in terms of the food chain, part of the predators level are missing important facts that cause big problems for good understanding) I think most of the folks I deal with here are honestly obtuse. There are those who are cluless, but I give them a pass. I don't know everything either. There do seem to be a few here that need to see a pshrink. They are generally on ignore. Anyway, Do you think of people you disagree with as fools, honestly misguided, knaves, venial, or how? Do you regard them as honestly misguided, or twisted souls using politics as a way of relieving their own psychological distress?
