Something most non-fiction writers have noticed is that their work is simultaneously considered to be both too critical and too uncritical at the same time.

In my own writing, a given piece may be lambasted by some as being to favourable towards some person, thing, organization or philosophy, while simultaneously lambasted by others as being too harsh or critical towards exactly the same thing.

I feel it is something of a litmus test.

If the more extreme viewpoints on both sides consider that I’m taking an opposing position, then I’m probably somewhere reasonably near the middle.

Oh, but it is an exciting life being a comparative moderate. You need a somewhat thicker hide than if you’re out on an extreme.

Perhaps that’s why taking the reasonable position is so rare. It certainly takes more effort, and seems to draw a whole lot more criticism.
