the political crater

7 Sep

Progressives see society as a web connecting grandma, strangers miles away, you/me. Conservatives see society as many cliques trying to climb the good life mountain. When Progressives talk about progress, they think of the web: when one rises, they pull up the rest a bit, too. For Conservatives, everyone must make their own way up the mountain, and helping non-clique members is conditional. The crater between is silly, because they both need the strivers to pull and climb.
