I find this binary type of thinking (on or off, yes or no, black or white, thumb up or thumb down, 1 or 0) very typical of of the conservative mind. More and more I am convinced that the far right conservative brain does not have the intelligence or ability to expend the mental energy needed to comprehend and process shadings of grey or even variation in colour when it comes to ideas, thoughts and opinions. It is an extremely lazy and trouble free way to live one's intellectual life. Instead processing all things from all angles then turning the dials of the mind to get the precise setting, the far right neo-cons have simply chosen to flick a switch on or off. As George W. Bush said, 'you're either with us or with them'.
