3 thoughts on “Our debased political discourse

  1. The optimist in me hopes that the long paper trail of the Internet will at least make this less common. It’s easier to call people into account. I know that the paper trail left by my old political blog has made me confront a lot of questions that I might have eluded if I could only forget what I said six years ago. But there it is in black and white. I’m on record as having said it. And even if I delete the blog, other people cited me as having said it. Nowhere to hide. This is inconvenient to the strength of my moral convictions, but it’s for the best. Better to remember that the world is a more complicated place so that I avoid saying things now that I will wish I could delete six years from now.
