That's funny. Because I was trying to be global in listing a
lot of things that people don't like---it's remarkable that you
didn't agree only with one! I wasn't actually saying either that
I disliked all those things, or that people should not like those
things. I should have added more things like "patriotism",
"charity", "religion", "anti-religion" just to balance it more.
