35. Positions Don't Matter
Edited on Sat Jan-22-05 11:16 AM by Mockingbird
Well, I see you use Ghandi as an icon.

Positions Don't Matter - tell that to someone reading the Kama Sutra.

You are sorta right, IMO. And maybe NOT.
There are a number of really good posts on this thread which all have a kernel of the truth.

Yes - they have learned that they can merely define us out of any relevence. Pick a word, taint it as "bad." Then call the opposition that word.

Time for "us" to do the same.

But I will not define myself as a "Dem."
"Independent" doesn't cut it either, ultimately. I prefer to be an idependent thinker & organizations are always eventually suspect.
You will resort to "group think" at some point, to the exclusion of your own work.

That is NOT malleability by default.
It can become something akin to it however, because we all strive for patterns & structure. Goes with the territory of being alive.
