On extremism — both left and right
When I got this from YouTube, there were people there commenting, “This is crap — all those groups ARE evil.” Cleese’s point is not that every person in every one of these groups is angelic, his point is that that isn’t the point. His point is precisely that targeting this or that group is a way for us to avoid looking closely at ourselves. This video, funny as it is, speaks volumes about basic human nature and gets to what I believe is humanity’s core problem.
What do you think? Does Cleese have a point here?
