My nine year old son, Adam saw me reading a news article about Boris Johnson’s campaign to be prime minister of the United Kingdom and I explained to him the rise of nationalist and anti immigration leaders, at the conclusion of which he shared his philosophy with me. He explained to me that people were like chocolates. There are white ones, brown ones, black ones etc. He concluded that you would never want a box of just one type and you would always want as many chocolates as possible.
I will have to consider this philosophy. In any event it does not surprise me ( or anyone that knows Adam ) that his world views are based on things you can eat. And he developed this philosophy without ever watching the movie Forrest Gump.
