Last night I was surprised to learn that I am a famous right-winger. Just when you think you know yourself, you find out you’re a totally different person.
First of all, I am not famous. I’m not even infamous. I am a small frog in a very large pond. Millions and millions of people are blissfully unaware of my existence. I’m okay with that, even though I wouldn’t mind being famous.
On the other hand, I don’t want to be a right-winger. Which is good because I’m NOT a right-winger. My ideology has no name and cannot be located on a left/right axis. I peeked behind the curtain, and what I saw there freed my mind.
My peek behind the curtain began in 2008, but it took a few years for that new knowledge to percolate into my thoughts and perceptions. In 2008 I was proud to call myself a liberal Democrat. These days I want nothing to do with those two labels. Nor do I want to have anything to do with any other labels.
I’m not going to define my ideology for the same reason I didn’t give it a name. And to be honest, I’m not sure I could define it. Maybe one day if I can come up with a simple definition for it I will give my ideology a name. But if I do it will be a made-up name like “Flendarism.”
I am very tired but I can’t sleep because I am also in a lot of pain. I’m gonna go lay in bed and try to stop hurting long enough to fall asleep.
