    I've been thinking about this for awhile. I think the world is driven by identity... Politics is just a noun as he is demonstrating.

    He always gives me a chance to disagree...


    We might need conservative ideas, we sure as hell don't need conservatives.

    Don't be such a black and white thinker, I know you can do better as a chess-player.

    Liberals need conservatives and vice versa just like Batman needs the Joker and men need women.

    Can't live with them, can't live without them! The question is how much there should be order and chaos.

    How much should we stay in the past and how much should we change and have progress and in what sense?

    The progression of Christianity foregoes the notion of 'guilt', but moral and ethical responsibility requires as one psychologist (can't remember his name and don't want to look it up) says, healthy shaming produces healthy adults (e.g. not Donald Trump)

    Everyone loves the concept of democracy which has checks and balances. It cannot exist without them. Conservative and liberal provide those checks and balances. However todays progressives want no checks and all their programs, no matter how well intended, are imbalanced. With the caveat, I don't confuse actual liberals as he appropriately and correctly described in the video, with woke or progressive by the way.

    There's plenty of people on either side of the aisle who are socially liberal and fiscally conservative. They may think of themselves as politically liberal or conservative. That's where democracy is, thats where the balance is. The rest of it has just turned Politics into a self-justified way to hate each other, plain and simple.
