I am frequently accused of not caring. And it’s true, there are a large number of things I don’t care about. Brittany Spears, Scientology, the latest fashions, football, baseball, volleyball, tetherball, and whether or not my husband looks at other women on the subway, the street or the Internet.

But then I am accused of not caring about other people. It’s true. I don’t care about other people. Rather, I don’t care what other people do. And I will tell you why this is a good thing. For other people.

Show me a person who cares, and I will show you a person who is trying to legislate (i.e. mandate or ban): abortion, books, cigarettes, drugs, euthanasia, fats, guns, homosexuals, immigrants, judicial review, Kyoto protocol, labor, morality, nuclear weapons, opinions, pledge of allegiance, quotas, research, stem cells, taxes, universal (health care, pre-K, Studios), vaccinations, wages, xenophobia, your personal taste, and Zionism (Protocols of the Elders of).

Whatever sliver of the political spectrum you’re on, there is someone else on another sliver that believes they have the right to tell you what to do. Because they know what’s best for you better than you know what’s best for you. Because they know what’s best for your kids better than you know what’s best for your kids. Because they care.

I don’t care what anyone else does, as long as it doesn’t hurt another person in the process. I believe everyone is smart enough to make their own decisions and to run their own lives.

So, go ahead. Do whatever you want.

I don’t care.

Lucky you.
