Juan Cole's Alternative Universe

Juan Cole:

"Bishop Desmond Tutu has stood all his life for nonviolent peace-making and an end to racism. Obviously, he would be upset about the Israeli mistreatment of the Palestinians, and has said so."

I wonder, sometimes, if it wouldn't be nice to live a life of intellectual certainties, with nary a need to reconcile one's positions with reality. But then I get on with life in the real world.
