Passion is a fine thing, sometimes

The Braden Files takes a look at BSD.

Bush hatred is not a rational response to actual Bush perfidy. Rather, Bush hatred compels its progressive victims — who pride themselves on their sophistication and sensitivity to nuance — to reduce complicated events and multilayered issues to simple matters of good and evil. Like all hatred in politics, Bush hatred blinds to the other sides of the argument, and constrains the hater to see a monster instead of a political opponent.

In other words, passion is a fine thing until it becomes blinding. Hatred tends to blind one by its focus. That means integrity is lost and learning becomes extremely difficult. The result of that is an inability to come together for higher common purposes and needs.
