Random Thoughts on Political Labels
Courtesy of some of my old tweets from 2009 or so ...
What if, for a month, all political discussions were in private in groups of adversaries who HAD to solve one problem each?
Could we function in a world where people and their views were not labeled in indelible ink?
Today's "liberal" is tomorrow's "conservative," today's "conservative," tomorrow's "liberal." Put away your meaningless scorecards.
What if we all considered every issue on its own merits without assigning it a box, category, or ideological label?
When did we start using "liberal" and "conservative" as nouns instead of adjectival modifiers? Seems like a denigration of the language.
