“Liberals hate it” – one can read this on the billboards advertising some conservative radio station. In their disgust for conservatives or “neocons”, liberals perfectly mirror the same attitude, despite the fact that they cannot afford to put it on billboards. There is a pending war, immigration is a mess, 46 million Americans have no health insurance, and our social security fund might dry out soon. Can we discuss these issues without name-calling? Can we agree to discuss our problems without using words like ”liberal” or “conservative;” but by finding what the facts are, and by trying to understand what they mean to us in the context of the knowledge accumulated during about 5000 years of our civilization?
