I believe that climate change is happening. I think science is important and facts matter. My moral compass tells me that separating kids from parents seeking asylum is the wrong way for Americans to behave. When push comes to shove, I side with the US intel establishment over Vladimir Putin. In cases where Nazis are involved, I wouldn’t argue that there are good people on all sides. To me, habitual lying seems like a negative character trait. I’m constantly reminded that these beliefs suggest that I live in a bubble. If that’s the case, please don’t be the prick that pops it. And while we’re in here, maybe we should discuss the real American bubble; the one in which people “seldom or never meet people from another race, and they prize sameness, not difference.” Emma Green in The Atlantic: These Are the Americans Who Live in a Bubble.
