Quit worrying about your reactionary genius. Enjoy him in other ways than politics.
This, incidentally, is what I would call a political perspective. One ignores the topic of politics except in relation to people who can (because of _some_ prior areas of agreement (war, supporting teachers; rights of migrants; whatever) can be moved to some political activity (signing a petition; contributing money to sending a person to the April 9 demo, what have you). It's hard on your blood pressure and doesn't change anything to worry about those (majority now) who support the enemy passively (by voting, etc).

That IQ is a poor measure of intelligence!
