The Last Days of Disco

“Opposites attract,” they say –and it’s true. Scoundrels are forever being smitten with angels, and vice versa, and if such terms are objectionable, replace them with the secular equivalent, but it’s still true. Like so much that verges on the hackneyed, a wealth of human experience looks out from behind it. Opposites attracts, unfortunately, and the cost, in terms of subsequent despair, ruinous legal actions, divorce, fatherless –or motherless– families, cracks in the social welfare system and people falling through those cracks, even suicide and violence, is incalculably horrible. For that reason I pledged myself to oppose the whole sexy “opposites attract” dynamic any way I could.
