Temperance Before I Go

I had wanted to offset that previous post with something on another topic. Unfortunately, we're out of food and have to run to the store, so it'll have to wait.

I do want to note, before I go, that there seems to me to be a natural human inclination to see the world in two ways: personally and intellectually, and finding the balance is a challenge for every social issue. Each point of view has negatives. Intellectually, one can conceive of all sorts of crazy conspiracies and justify all sorts of horrid policies. Personally, one can disbelieve the real effects of broad social policies that don't immediately affect one's life.

I'll return.
