Spleen Cringe BS: Reinforcing respectful 'boundaries' (1096* d) RE: BS: Reinforcing respectful 'boundaries' 27 Aug 13


Personally I think it's disingenious to promote your strongly-worded political views whilst simultaneously claiming to be above, beyond or "not interested" in politics. I'm not talking here about party politics, or even necessarily ideology, but expressions of beliefs held about society and the groups and individuals within it. Such expressions are by their very nature political, whether the person making them accepts and owns this or not. So when GfS, for example, talks of "common sense" rather than politics, I'm disinclined to accept this at face value, especially when notions such as "common sense" tend to be ideological constructs in themselves.

Larry... thank you for including me in your list. I must try harder to be obnoxious in future!
