So. Hard. To. Say. Anything. Bad. About. Eliezer.


Aren't you a bit biased here? If one expresses positive views about Eliezer, that's fawning, obsequiousness, or other rather exaggerated word, but negative views and critique is just business as usual. As usual.

It would be better if talking about people ceased and ideas and actions got 100% attention.

Remove the talk about people from politics and what's left? Policies? I don't know what the people/policies ratio in political discussion in the media is, but often it feels like most of the time is spent on talking about the politicians, not about policies. I guess it's supposed to be that way.
