Social futurist(?!) Sara Robinson tells us the real meaning of Mother’s Day, and comes up with quite an analysis of men from both sides of the political spectrum. Her ‘How the Ayn Rand-Loving Right Is Like a Bunch of Teen Boys Gone Crazy’ is a worthy sample of what sites like AlterNet.com and truthout.com are telling their own kind. Again, it’s worth a read for our more conservative and libertarian readers to get a measure of the chasm, and also some perspective on the criticism from our more liberal readers clucking their tongues for merely being identified as collectivists or socialists or liberal or leftwing – all labels apparently of a pejorative nature when uttered in mixed company, and in the light of day. H/T to a reader who definitely does not identify with the right, and yet is a bit embarrassed at the extremes her brethren and cistern (or is it sistern?) dish out.
