In response to:

Maybe We Really Can’t All Just Get Along

Take the blinkers off - no one, Right or Left, can offer all the answers and be right all the time. To completely turn your mind off other views is to make yourself a servant to those who want to control you.

During the Los Angeles riots of 1992, Rodney King famously asked, “Can’t we all just get along?” The answer should be an easy and unequivocal “yes,” but it seems less and less likely these days.

King was speaking in term of race, but the same could be said of political ideology. Liberals, conservatives and every other point on the political spectrum used to co-exist fairly easily (with the exception of left-wing anarchists who don’t get along with anyone). But these days détente has given way to anger and open hostility.

Some, not all, people have become less civil to those...
