Join the party

“How would you act politically – what kinds of arguments would you make, what kinds of laws would you support, what means of persuasion would you use – if you knew that those whom you most despise will at some point hold the reins of political power in your country?”

If your reaction would be ‘Let’s get them before they get us,’ there’s a political party for you.

UPDATE 30 April 2014: Charles Pergiel says we are already at that point, ruled by people we despise, though “despise” may be too strong a word for our feelings for the ruling class. It seems to me that it’s not too strong a word for the ruling class’s feelings toward us though. I’m pretty sure both Senator Boehner and President Obama despise people like me.
