Between rapists and "provocatively-dressed women."
Between bullies and "oh, that kid was asking for it."
Between "job creators" and The American People.
Between the Israelis and the Palestinians.
Between climate-change deniers and Actual Science.
Between the people Who Know What Is Right and the rest of us.
Between Mythology and Reason.
Between Violence and Peace.
Between Destruction and Survival.
Between the Willfully Blind and Those of Us Trying Our Best to See.

Where does it end?

4. Well, to be honest

It's false equivalencies all the way down. If you're having a conundrum, they've already got you.

5. Where it ends is the dissolution of our nation into corporate fiefdoms,

 

and a population of serfs, where it begins is your television set.

6. That is brilliant...You need to publish that somewhere besides DU

Let's see... there's The Nation, The Progressive, Utne Reader, The New Yorker, to name just a few.

Where does it end? Might never. Unless we can get some reality pumped out to the
American people instead of this crap we call our news media. I want to throw something at the the TV or radio every time I hear a pundit say "Both sides are guilty of it."
