The Blather of the Non-committed

It's such a vulgar compulsion that some people have--of making a great show of their ambivalence on a given subject. That is, of broadcasting this ambivalence of itself, and there's an end of it. They do not do so in order to resolve anything; just to make it clear to the world that there's something that they're fuzzy on, that it's somehow very personal, and that they have mustered the courage to ... well, to not stare it in the face.

Edward Michael George speaks against the lazy mind whose literal devotion to the principle "truth lies in the mean" generates nothing more than self-expression and indifference.
