Shouting Across the Divide   2 comments

While checking up on one of my favorite voluntaryists, I can across an article about how conservatives and liberals no longer want to be neighbors. I was tempted to disbelieve the study. I have liberal neighbors and friends, so it’s not my experience, but then I read the comments. Ninety percent were from liberals who absolutely hate conservatives.

Okay, I don’t want to live next to bigoted ideologues who think I’m an idiot, crazy or scum of the earth. Who would want to expose themselves to that sort of abuse while at home?

And right there is exactly why this country is probably doomed. We can’t even listen to the alternative arguments. Why? Well, it might require that we look at facts rather than feelings. It could be we might have to admit we were wrong on some things. It could mean we might have to do something to fix the mess we’ve made of the country. And its could be we might need to learn the art of civility, agreeing to disagree, and exercise true tolerance, which means we accept the right of individuals to hold alternative viewpoints without attempting to silence those we disagree with.

Liberty — what a curious notion!
