The silly game

Watching political people almost cracks me up.

You have a group playing a game with dice painted gold, while another group plays the same game with identical dice painted green.

They pretend they are playing different games, and they hate each other based on this shared hallucination.

They may call themselves Democrats, conservatives, Republicans, or progressives. Some of them even call themselves Libertarians. They are all playing the same game, with identical pieces, under identical rules. Any differences they perceive are just surface decoration.

It would be nice if this focus on their teammates would distract them from reality long enough for the rest of us to leave them in the dust. To build the agora right under their noses.


Writing is my job.
YOU get to decide if I get paid.
