No man that's Harambe. Johnson makes pharmaceuticals with the other Johnson


But it Johnson gets to be on the debates then Harambe should as well. Probably make more sense than the candidates up there

Interesting thought. Is a Manichean worldview a form of sloth? Is it a symptom of laziness to refuse to engage in the messy details of policy analysis and compromise that constitute normal politics in a plural society? It can be, but I don't think that's quite fair to the author who has probably thought a lot about the issues.

Dubya sure thought as such. Freedom is a universal value. Nope.

What's interesting is that this style of thought is commonly applied to the right, particularly to Bush II, but the left and SJWs in particular are extremely guilty of it. I mean, right side of history? Could there be a more Manichean statement than that?

Did he? It comes off as lazily framing the entire dynamics of the United States as "Liberals vs Conservatives," but leaves out the worlds of complexity beneath that. Democratic voters aren't purely Culture War progressive, and Republicans aren't purely neocons like Kristol.

Especially in this election, how do you blandly toss out an "us vs them" narrative when the fracturing of the conservative movement is one of the driving forces of the election?

99% of MSM coverage of US politics does this.

yes the problem with lapsing into reductive dichotomies is that both sides are guilty of it

Don't worry guys, Dr. Oz will provide a full examination of Trump's medical records.

Get me off this election's crazy train please.

I'm not understanding this. Trump will hand Oz his medical records and somehow Oz already knows he's going to find something wrong?
