One of the more amusing ideas I’ve learned in the past couple of years is that fundamentalism is not only a “religious” phenomenon. Moderns frequently prefer the arbitrary divide of “conservativism” and “liberalism” to any truly critical thinking; rarely is either group’s moral compass truly reckoned with.
So today, be different. When you disagree with a “flaming liberal,” or find a “conservative” to be banal and backwards, try to think about life through their eyes. Truly engage with the ontology, morality, and outcomes of their world. Mediators are more valuable than ever in divided days like ours.
