Yeah, I try to avoid negative checks in code.

How about this?

special_respect = False
be_courteous = True

ideas = [
     ('socio-economic', 'capitalism rules!'),
     ('spiritual', 'religion rules!'),
     ('political', 'left-wing rules!'),
     ('python', 'spaces rule!'),

for area, opinion in ideas:
     if area != 'python' and be_courteous:

print('non-Python ideas/opinions easily omitted without Special Respect!')
