On Fanaticism

I'm feeling a little irritated by what I see as a fanaticism that exists on both sides of the political spectrum. My thought for the day is a quote from a recommended book, Eric Hoffer's True Believer: Thoughts on the Nature of Mass Movements.

"The opposite of the religious fanatic is not the fanatical atheist but the gentle cynic who cares not whether there is a god or not." - Eric Hoffer

(Here are some more Eric Hoffer quotes.)
