I am different now

I intent to post something more in depth soon, but for now I just want to say I find myself in a strange position. My politics seem to have changed dramatically. Not on any actual positions, I’m on the left of nearly all issues as I have been for most of my life. But because of a few things in my life that I’ll go into later, and because I cannot stomach Obama’s drone-warfare program and other abuses of power, I find myself no longer welcome among some of my long time friends and allies.

The short of it is, I’m tired of liberal politics in which principles are something that are nice tools with which to win an argument, but can be safely abandoned at the slightest hint of danger. I’m tired of Democrat-party loyalists who regard putting principles above politics to be naive or old-fashioned. American’s rights to marriage? Don’t tread on them or risk being buried beneath the moral truisms (and rightly so). But a Pakistani’s right to not be killed? Well, we can’t worry about that when there are more important things on our plate, like American issues in America.

I’m especially tired of macho-tough-guy liberalism. The kind that takes pride in its ability to every bit as savage as anyone else, but thinks itself superior because it’s “smarter” about its use of violence. Because I suppose there is something “smart” about rationalizations in which Americans have the right to life and liberty, but people in other countries not so much.

Fuck. That.
