“Where does this conviction come from — this need to make absolute moral pronouncements, and to believe that doing so is a vitally important political act? The fact is that large numbers of people appear to think it’s woefully inadequate to say, ‘X is bad, I won’t vote for X, and I think voting for X is a bad mistake.’ One must say, instead, or also, that ‘X is a fascist,’ by which they mean, ‘X is an expression of the purest political evil.'” (03/08/23)
