    Every four years, it’s the ritual of my people to descend into an orgiastic hate festival for six to eight months, thereabouts.

    What’s more, you’re told it’s absolutely you civic duty to participate in the hate festival.

    You will be considered irresponsible if you let a natural sense of disgust drive you away from viewing and participating.

    Not only will be you be accused by orgiastic hate mongers of a lack of national duty, but of helping the other side of the hate festival.

    What's more, we are told that even accepting the humanity of one side is to invalidate the humanity of the other.

    The hate festival costs billions of dollars, none of which goes to solving any of the problems either side believes the other is causing.

    We are told this is the highest and best form of large-scale human coordination, and to even question it is a kind of treachery.

    So that's how my people do things. That's our way. And I... I just wait for next year.
