I am super liberal. I was also a Hillary supporter. But at this point, I don’t think fighting is the answer. I really don’t.
I think we need to work on changing hearts and minds. I really mean it.
And I don’t mean changing hearts and minds by deceiving, or for the purposes of getting people on our side. I mean sitting down with those who disagree with us the most, getting to understand why they believe what they do, and really working on coming to a sustainable compromise.
I’m done with radicalism — largely because nothing sustainable is coming from it anymore. We took two steps forward, and now three back. So we gained nothing.
I think “fighting” is the wrong word. I will never stop believing, but I WILL stop fighting. I will start conversing. I will start trying to understand and compromise with genuine good will and optimism.
That is what I will do.
