My lips…or should I say my finger tips…have been with much guile. I need to change.
I do not think that this will mean that I will be more agreeable. I still think that certain views should be marginalized rather than engaged. Some arguments, left and right, are stupid. However, I do not need to be the one who points it out.
Instead, I would like to focus more of my energy on creating a positive vision of where I stand morally, politically, and theologically. I am not known as a Rawlsian liberal, I am known for my anti-conservative angst. Yuck. I need to do better.
I think that my first step will be to not go to blogs that provoke my angst. The mod queue at M* will miss me. The permas at fMh will have less need to eye-roll at my elitist comments.
This also means that I will be posting more rather than commenting elsewhere. I am looking forward to my summer.
I apologize to the many I have offended by my behavior. I do not apologize for my theory. However, my behavior has clouded my mind and my message.
A new chapter.
