    There was a “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood” marathon on Twitch last year and I watched as much of it as I could. His show was the driving force behind my movement towards Leftist ideologies. What a terrific human being he was. There really aren’t enough words to describe the positive influence that he had on so many lives.

      I absolutely agree with you on all these points. It took me a long time for me to realize that leftism was the only path that could reconcile my ethics with my politics but I’m glad I found my way. If we could all just be maybe 5% as kind and empathetic as Mr. Rogers this world would look a lot different, don’t ya think?
