69. Standing up to them doesn't mean you deny their humanity.

It's just a fact. Human beings are limited. We don't know what we don't know... about the other person.

I don't go out of my way to "socialize" with R's, and I boycott and actively work to stop "Movement Conservatives"
and their agenda. But I don't want to cut off all normal associations with people I meet, just because they
happen to have bought in to the lies of the CONservative PR blitzkrieg.

That "threat" can not be construed as ever having originated from people I run in to in my daily life.

That's the important distinction I'm trying to make. The "organized money" folks who are the real originators
of the R agenda are terrified that they won't be able to keep us all divided, forever.

Edit add:

The other thing is, I hope DU never devolves into a Bizarro World mirror of Freeperville. Where all dissent,
thought, exchange of ideas, and "silent whistle" call to arms ringing a Pavlovian bell replaces authentic dialogue.

(In case you haven't guessed, I'm not yet sold on DU3. The independent voices that used to grace the right
side of the home page have been whited out. Why?)
