162. Whenever presented with only two choices....
always look for a third, fourth, fifth, etc.

All societies are a mix of individualistic and egalitarian values/motives (even ours - I know, hard to believe at this late date). We have swung too far to the individualistic side of the pendulum. We're long overdue for a return to equality and communal values. The answer to our problem isn't any true version of Socialism, but until we can think of a better way to describe what we want, that term will probably be used a lot.

And that's okay. Never let your enemy scare you off from your own name. But don't let him chase you into a definition of you that doesn't fit either. Don't let him make you embrace the tarbaby. He'll be laughing his ass off at you, and you will deserve it. Define yourself. Always.
