About this Episode

I think I'm supposed to understand why right-wing people are intolerant. But it's harder for me to understand why left-wing people are intolerant. Guess I thought they were supposed to be about freedom and diversity.  Come to find out, they're not. So I had to go back to a source that's almost been "blacklisted" itself. It's the movie My Son John (1952), starring Helen Hayes and Robert Wagner. Hey, but isn't that a reactionary movie from the Eisenhower movie? No, it's not.  It's an excruciating journey into the cause of liberal intolerance. If I -- meaning PZ -- had a mother and a father like 'John' does in My Son John, I'd probably do what he did.  I'm almost sure I'd want to.
