You don’t HAVE to take a side on every controversy. Oftentimes, both sides are wrong. It’s OK to sit things out in these situations. Just because X is wrong doesn’t mean that not-X is right.

Just know that very powerful people orchestrate so many of these controversies not as contests between right and wrong, good and evil, freedom and tyranny, etc. Rather they are designed to pull emotional triggers, wreck friendships and relationships, destroy your mental, spiritual and even physical health, etc. These people don’t give a flying rip about YOU.

Do your own thinking! And you don’t always have to agree with me! (YAY!)

Exercising personal independence is good.

About Food for the Thinkers

My name is Doug Newman. I live in Aurora, Colorado, just outside Denver. Food for the Thinkers is mostly about the connection between Christianity and libertarianism. Most Christians do not understand libertarianism. And most libertarians do not understand Christianity. Hopefully, this blog helps clear up those misunderstanding. Check out my old page at And remember: When you let people do whatever they want, you get Woodstock. But when you let governments do whatever they want, you get Auschwitz.
