The thing people must realize is we are currently in the midst of a culture war that started because of a divide and lack of discussion across that
divide. This isn't a battle of left vs right political ideologies but of:
Individualist vs Collectivists
Libertarian vs Authoritarian
Equality of Opportunity vs Equality of Outcome
You can always avoid the mud-pit...
Trying to put a lid on this or shy away will not help. This is a band-aid situation and we are currently in the process of ripping it off. There is
literally decades of transgressions that modern liberalism must account for. Not liberals as people but as an ideology. This will take a bit to
Liberals in general must look inside and ask:
"Is the line I'm towing beneficial or the greater good?"
It's either this or the alternative and we let the extremist's on both sides have their civil war.
I believe ATS will eventually go back to it's glory days. Minus the pejoratives and straw-men. We just need to let this deconstruction and rebuilding
of liberalism happen naturally.
