Hated by the Right for being too liberal
Hated by the Left for being too conservative
Yet I am supposed to take sides?
I can no longer tell the lesser of two evils (which is still evil).
Ever heard of the Middle Way? It was a spiritual movement centuries ago, though in this politically correct culture we just call it “libertarianism”.
You can actually be hated for being too positive? Granted if you are too positive, it may mean you are out of touch with reality. There is such a thing as too much of a bad thing.
I am all for optimistic pessimism, aka realistic. In laymen’s terms, even if we are all doomed, we can still have a good time.
