Quote o' the Day

I’m convinced that we’re living in a global meta-culture badly damaged by future shock.

The Tea Partiers are a symptom of this. So are the Young-Earth Creationists and the Biblical literalists.

Complexity hurts, and many people can’t handle it, so they retreat into comfortingly comprehensible certainties.

--Charles Stross in a book salon about his recent Trade of Queens

I grew up with Biblical literalist and Young-Earth Creationist views. I have strong sympathies with aspects of the Tea Partiers complaints. However, I have to agree with Stross that comprehensible certainties often appear to be refuges from peevish perplexities.
