With regards to this post from Burt Likko, on the possibility of social backlash from knowledge of ones political activities, I’d like to mention the following:
When political control holds such deep importance to our lives as to raise the need for constant worry that somebody you deal with happens to disagree with you on something, that in and of itself should be seen as a huge red flag. All that culture war, in the end, transforms us. Into what? Well…ever watch a squirrel eat? Eyes darting all over the place, nervous something is going to attack them at any second, usually not even finishing what they picked up — doesn’t look like they’re enjoying themselves, huh?
