If this were a debate between classic Liberals and Conservatives, I might take the Liberal side on half the issues. I would always at least respect the other side and remain open to changing my mind if presented with new data or a better argument. Unfortunately, we are far past that world. What we are now fighting is an organized attempt to overthrow the culture that gave rise to the notion of reasoned debate and the nation that enshrined free speech, civil rights, and the principle of equality under law. I believe the Democrat Party has fallen under the influence of anarchists, Left-fascists, race baiters, and SJWs of a cancel culture that is trying to do away with Constitutional order. You can try to pretend everything is all right. I believe in looking directly into the abyss and confronting the danger. If they throw a rock and break a window, I don’t make excuses. I arrest the rock thrower. Once you get to that point, talking doesn’t work. You have to restore order first. So I’d like to believe your approach will wor. but at this point it seems a bit naive.
