How To Join Third (And Fourth and Fifth) Parties

There is a politically aware gentleman Down South who has made his change, switching from one party to the other. He didn't even stop at "Independent", which is the fashionable location for converts (temporary or otherwise).

His reasoning is a strong argument for my own opinion: that binary thinking is of no benefit to humanity. The switch was from the party devoted to hating enemies to the one devoted to alienating allies - not much improvement, but at least you can have a conversation with someone you only partially agree with and won't be called a traitor for it.

It's worth reading.
