Tangibly Inhuman

On one of the more thoughtful and interesting left-wing blogs I follow, I stumbled across what strikes me as probably one of the most truth-telling blog comments I've ever read:
The left and the right have at least one thing in common they are both tangibly inhuman. Reptilian I would say is the proper category for both.
Talk about cutting through all the bullshit and telling it like it is. I've always thought of myself, I still think of myself, as somewhere right of center. But in recent years it's hard to survey the political and cultural scene without lapsing into despair over the uniformly distributed tangible inhumanity of most of those who are activated and engaged, regardless of whether they're on the right or on the left.
