Are they a 'Rebel' or of the 'Empire'? A False Dichotomy

Blanketing any writer/philosopher/scientist/artist/politician as “right” or wrong” is entirely unhelpful. Are they a 'Rebel' or of the 'Empire' is a false dichotomy. Like the rest of us, they are mere men and women, deeply shaded in gray. Let us judge only their ideas, and one at a time. Quick to embrace the cream that rises to the top. And equally quick to discard the folly, not as evidence of their intentional opposition to all things good, but merely of their humanity.
