I first saw it in the news nearly five years ago, this stuff about linking one’s genetic make-up to one’s tendency toward liberalism or conservatism. The idea stuck with me. Do our politics really radiate from our cells?
Virtually all of my dearest friends are liberals. We have lots in common. We laugh together. We commiserate. In many ways, we connect. Unless you count politics, economic theory, and religion, we get along great. I make sure our conversations never get near these topics, but it’s hard to hide it completely. True friendship is rare enough, I say; let’s try to maintain it.
