I haven't been posting much, mostly due to a level of busyness I have not experienced previously. Still busy today, so I will outsource this post to Thom Yorke. In an interview with Esquire, Thom explains proper behavior in political arguments:
Respect is if you're having a political argument with someone, just before you get to the point where you call them a fascist, you sort of step back and wonder how on earth they've ended up at this point of complete ignorance and stupidity.
That sounds about right to me.
