My friend! I just found your post and read through it. My apologies for being late to the party.
Lawhawk (#26) and Alouette (#68) spoke my mind and LVQ at #87 (but not so much after!). Forgive me all for missing some prior discussions this week, but I needed a break after last week. It really disturbed me, too, CL. And I appreciate your writing this post and all the wonderful responses.
I don’t know if we’ll ever be able to discuss this topic civilly without the biting sarcasm or obvious anger. Maybe it’s just that civility is for gardens and music, but not so much for religion and land rights! I do, however, understand the rage and hopelessness of LGF posters, even what it gets nasty. I understand it. It doesn’t mean I agree with it, but I get the emotion. I feel it too and have certainly expressed it.
I don’t know where that leaves us, other than we are but a microcasm in the great macrocasm, yes? If we can sling around the mud and keep coming back to the table, maybe there’s hope yet.
Rock on, CL :)
