Not a bad video actually and one which highlights my frustration with the left vs right framing of every political argument. Of course what it is missing and where the video reveals its bias is not calling out the “Right” in juxtaposition to the “Left”.
I agree that some Leftists communicate from a hardened position that doesn’t share the same goals as my position. Bu ...[text shortened]... who do not share the same goals as me.
@Whodey, what is your view on the “Right” on Rightists ?
The video shows the distinction between a liberal and a Leftists. Although liberals and conservatives may disagree, they have common goals which allow them to remain civil and work together.
For example, both liberal and conservative want social justice, but the Leftist comes along and declares that white males are racist. There then is no conversation. Or the Left comes along and says that the right wing are fascists. Again, no conversation works because no goals are shared. Or they will say that all corporations/rich people are immoral. They have ended the conversation with the declaration that they are out to destroy them.
Now when a conservative says that they want to secure the border or end abortion, there is leeway for debate and conversation. I'm not attacking people in particular, I'm just declaring a goal of social justice for those that cannot defend themselves with the unborn and declaring that the country needs secure borders That means that there can be compromise. So instead of saying walls are immoral, or ICE is immoral and they both need to be destroyed, you could say that you can modify both to be more effective. Or instead of saying abortion is wrong in all circumstances, you could say except in the instance that the life of the mother is in danger, etc. But to say that the unborn child is not human is simply disingenuous, and is akin to calling me a Nazi. At that point, the conversation ends.
