Stop Being A Political Zombie

I really DESPISE the website I'm about quote from, but it's a good article in a sea of hundreds of deeply misogynistic and hateful articles.

But here goes:
Stop Being a Political Zombie

It has a condescending tone and I disagree with the writer's political views (esp on the ruling class theory), but the overall message is definitely sorely needed in the political arena today.

Some quick quotes from it:

"blind allegiance to one or another political ideology on the left-right spectrum is tiring. For the most part these assigned buzzwords and talking points are really not person’s own beliefs but what is given to them to say. The smarter ones realize this on some level but go along with it anyway."

"The sad fact is the left right paradigm is just a trap to force you into one camp or another. Once you’re in one camp or the other the people in the other camp are automatically your “enemy” ... If you noticed, anything that doesn’t fall under this “plan” is almost universally attacked by both camps."

"This manufactured divide also kills productive political debate. Most political discussions in these two camps are just echo chambers where any dissenting view is pushed out rather quickly."

More of a marriage on foreign policy than domestic. Anti-war activists are among the most prone to being zombies.
