I mean, the entire column would win, but in particular, I’d like to highlight this gem from Morgan K Freeberg:
People who have chosen not to take a stand, do not have neutral feelings toward others who decide to take the same stand. It’s no different from stopping a mugging, or helping to put out a house fire. You decide to leave well enough alone, someone else decides to do it differently — he makes you look bad, and you hate him for it.
The whole thing is a standout. I put Peek in the Well into the blogroll for a number of reasons, and one is that Morgan, whom I’ve never met or spoken with, is able to describe my own mental and cultural development better than I can.
