«Стою в очереди, а за мной молодой человек. И вдруг он мне замечание сделал какое-то про ударение, что я не так сказала. Не помню уже, что. Но продавщица очень развеселилась… А молодой человек, видимо, наркоман… С другой стороны, он-то сам брал свечи какие-то с красавкой. А, нет, он не наркоман! Он — этот… Педераст! Но очень грамотный!»

Грэм в последнем эсце сказал неожиданно глубокую вещь.

I think what religion and politics have in common is that they become part of people's identity, and people can never have a fruitful argument about something that's part of their identity. By definition they're partisan.

<…>

The most intriguing thing about this theory, if it's right, is that it explains not merely which kinds of discussions to avoid, but how to have better ideas. If people can't think clearly about anything that has become part of their identity, then all other things being equal, the best plan is to let as few things into your identity as possible… There is a step beyond thinking of yourself as x but tolerating y: not even to consider yourself an x. The more labels you have for yourself, the dumber they make you.

Нет ли в этом антисемитизма?
