Harrison Bergeron by Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.

While I am more than aware that the left and right is a pendulum, forever swinging hither and thither, the upswell of both populism and its reactionary response, political correctness, has made this short story by Kurt Vonnegut, Jr., more proof that the author might very well have been a time traveler from the future.

I have had more than my fair share. But going through lovers has never been the way I have ever passed my time. It's neither sport nor a source of story or content. I feel like Sharon Olds gets my feelings perfectly right.
