Everything Is OK
Now here's a video that people on the left and on the right, you would think, would all approve of. Like Tea Party folks, he raises questions about government authority and interference into people's lives. Like people on the left, he questions our cultural imperative to consume things we don't need.
Yet, I think that there is something about what he's doing that makes everyone a little uncomfortable. People who speak truth in public, people who make us think about what we are doing and why, always make us uncomfortable.
He makes us, for a moment at least, confront the gap between what we believe and what we do.
