One Lesson From South Carolina

This week I’ve read a lot from both sides of the political spectrum about the shooting in South Carolina, and one lesson has become clear: never trust any commentary or report that reduces anything to a single cause, a single effect, or a single meaning.

Life is more complicated than that.  Anyone who says otherwise is just trying to sell you on easy ideology.  If we’re ever serious about some issue, we have to approach it from all the messy angles, even the ones that challenge our worldviews.
