Quoth Alan Shore in “Boston Legal”

That’s what troubles me, this notion we have to take sides in this country, now. You’re either for us or against us, Republican or Democrat, red state or blue state. Nobody looks at an issue and struggles over the right position to take any more. And, yet, our ability to reason is what makes us human. Lately, why do we seem so willing to forfeit that reason in exchange for the good feeling of belonging to a group? We all just take the position of our team. I’ve certainly done it and hated myself for it.
