I am gonna write about this somewhere else soon, but your post seemed like a good place too:
I'm almost of the opinion that having political opinions in general in [current year] is *tired*.
It doesn't matter what your political opinions are, you're always wrong anyway lol
Part of my reasoning for that is that some people think their political opinions are constituent to a personality and use it to define their persona. People will introduce themselves as being a progressive like it's their MBTI horoscope tribe or something. Ugh. You being a “progressive” is a way to describe your philosophical beliefs about government and society. Not some personality type indicator.
i.e. You are not your politics.

People talk about social systems (e.g. "socialism", "capitalism") the way software developers talk about code improvement methodologies (e.g. "agile")
Oooh, spot on! Me and a colleague used to joke about this *all the frickin' time*. At some point I came up with some Radio Yerevan jokes, but for agile, let me see if I can find them :-D.
