"People" like Meade wrote in Ananda Mirilli.
The quotes make this appear to mean something like "so-called people like Meade." With that, I can concur.
It's becoming more evident Meade is not an actual person at all, but rather a convenient screen identity through which any number of randomly-sorted, obtuse political and social viewpoints can be aired without being claimed and clarified in any personal way.
The out-of-the-blue defense of religiosity is what convinced me. Where the hell did that
come from, in the nothing-is-sacred-except-meanness Meade reality matrix? It's so totally out of character it renders the very notion of character irrelevant.
