It doesn’t matter how passionate we are. It doesn’t matter if indeed one side is more right than the other (how can both camps be right?) Intractability has been the watchword for a while now. We all know what we know, with little expectation of a change of heart. We suspect the worst from those across the aisle, we question each other’s motives and intent.
How much of what one believes is true conviction, and not simply reading-the-room convenience, saying what people seem to want to hear?
