It’s a concept as simple as any concept can be. It’s been staring us in the face since the beginning of time. But we tend to forget it. We tend to forget its fundamental truth as we go squawking around, staking out steadfastly immovable ideological positions.
So what is it?
It’s this: nothing in the world is simple black and white. Green and red and blue and fuschia and orange and brown and pink and grey and banana yellow taint every effort at purity.
The reason Donald Trump is so widely scoffed at by the American people (in spite of his lead with the Republican “base”) is that he is one-dimensional. He sees everything in black and white. His views are so simple and crude and childish as to be laughable. He will not be elected because no caricature can ever be elected.
If I am wrong, the concept of humanity is fundamentally flawed and we are doomed. No shades of grey in this situation; it really is black and white.
