A friend of mine describes America today like this (and he’s talking about right wingers as well as left wingers):

  1. I am my desires
  2. Justice is the fulfilling of my desires, injustice is the impeding of my desires
  3. You are either the ally or the enemy of my desires
  4. If you are the ally, I will tolerate you; if you are the enemy, I will seek to destroy you.
