Believe it or not, I’m eager to find common ground in progressive arguments.
The problem is that they’re not founded in reason, but emotion. I’m not interested in developing solutions to our problems through the method of emoting alongside others. Emotion supplies motivation; it is not the process for finding answers. Yet, without fail, when progressives (or “moderates,” for that matter) articulate their emotions in the guise of reason, they respond to reasoned answers emotionally… or by pretending the contrary point has not been made.
This is the methodology of children and will only lead to ruination.
