The Ukraine and Russian imperial aims.
Syria: who are the “good” and “bad” guys?
Israel and a two-state solution: Is “recognition” of Israel necessary?
Immigration: cheap labor or cheap votes?
Welfare and food stamps: who “deserves” help?
“Affordable” Health Care: someone pays.
Immigration: How do we remain hospitable and make citizenship and the rule of law meaningful?
What moral values will we enforce in a civil society?
Religious convictions and conversions: are affirmations of truth now “intolerance?”
It’s complicated being thoughtful.
It’s easy to shout and smear.
For our future I hope civil and principled discussion will take place and reasonable ideas prevail.
The alternative is anarchy and new totalitarianism.
Let’s choose thoughtfulness.
