Part 1 :
Goldberg is right in theory but misses some important points. First of all, most liberals and conservatives actually agree on the goals for America – freedom and prosperity – but disagree in part about what that freedom and prosperity imply and how to get there.
Conservatives, more than liberals, measurer freedom as freedom from government oppression while liberals, more than conservatives, measure freedom as freedom from all oppression, government and private. This difference is much smaller than the areas of agreement and the potential for rational compromise should be obvious.
