Greetings. I've noticed of late that our normal American Partisanship has mutated into a particularly dispicable breed of near hatred. Nietzsche called it the "slave mentality". It's where one group views themselves as good and their opposite as bad, while the counterpart group views themselves as good and their opposite as evil. An important distinction, to say the least. Anyway, do you all see this sort of rabid hate for the other party in your area? On TV? Radio? Newspapers? School? Work? etc... Also, if you had to choose a 'party' for yourself, do you see the other party as _______? A. Good B. OK C. Shady D. Bad E. Evil Please do not use this thread as a place to flame Bush or Kerry, as such insults do little but enflame their supporters and alienate those whom wish to conduct a real discussion. Thanks for cooperating!
