‘Let’s at least make troubled individuals easier to spot’


 

Jon Stewart and Roger Ailes find themselves vaguely in agreement on something.

I do think that its important for us to watch our rhetoric, I do think that its a worthwhile goal not to conflate our political opponents with our enemies if for no other reason than to draw a better distinction between the manifestos of paranoid mad men and what passes for acceptable political and pundit speak. It would be really nice if the ramblings of crazy people didn’t in any way resemble how we actually talk to each other on TV. Let’s at least make troubled individuals easier to spot.

More from Ezra KleinConor Friedersdorf, George Packer, Timothy Egan and Ta-Nehisi Coates.
