Or How Liberals and Progressives Lose The Debate By Understanding
By attempting to use understanding, or to solely use reason to explain their political positions, Progressives, and Liberals loose the debate.
Radical Conservatives, are not trying to understand, they are using Righteous Passion to light the fires of their political rhetoric – the flames of which are meant to burn Progressives and Liberals as heretics at the stake.
Radical Conservatives seek nothing less than to dominate, and eliminate Progressive and Liberal thought from the discourse, in fact they are damn tired of talking and trying to understand; they want action, and they want it now.
Progressives and Liberals will loose this debate because they are trying to understand the world and how to safely fit everybody in it.
Radical Conservative do not suffer this discomfort, they don’t want you in their world, unless you change to fit in theirs, they will do everything in their power to eliminate you and your progressive ideas from even getting a seat at the table.
What’s at the Core Of The Debate?
The Average Conservative or Republican Joe or Jane, has become a tool of the Radical Right.
As Progressives or Liberals, make no mistake, the Average Conservative is not your foe.
At the center of their idea of America is the very powerful notion of Self Sufficiency. Any Progressives attempts to steer the conversation of solutions to Americas problems away from Self Sufficiency is doomed to failure.
For Progressives and Liberals To Effect Change:
They must insist that all social agendas have at their heart an adherence to a philosophy of Personal Self Sufficiency.
Any discrediting of the Far Right must be done on the basis, that actions, mostly by large economic entities are affecting and will continue to negatively affect all Americans ability to adequately take care of themselves.
Looking only to Government to take care of all the ills of its citizenry leads to a breakdown of self sufficiency.
For this writer, the conversation I would like to have with all Americans is:
If Big Government leads to a breakdown of people taking responsibility for their own actions, and erodes the power of their Self Sufficiency, then How Might Big Business create the same effect?
