Moscato Della Venezie sparkling white) conversation with Kevin about an incredibly biased and completely derogatory article published about my uni (the woman was a decent writer, unfortunately her paragraphs contained nothing of substance). Essentially it said: in today's relativist culture, if I don't have an opinion, it is the right opinion - as soon as an individual takes a stance on their politics or religion on a larger stage, they are wrong. However, how can you be right when there is no foundation for your statements, when you are arguing nothing? Limbo is a difficult place to be, and personally, I can't imagine it. Besides, religion changes your politics, if it doesn't, there is something wrong - your spiritual side isn't completely integrated into your being, leaving it lopsided and disproportionate. Argh. Luckily I felt a bit better after this article was forwarded to a bunch of us from a friend who had attended the LLC.
