193. Amen -- You nailed it -- False linkage undermines every issue
Edited on Thu Oct-26-06 09:39 AM by Armstead
Every issue that liberals care about are undermined by the larger issues of Wealth and Power.

That's not to say that social and personal issues are not important. But even with those, the ability to debate and deal with them on their own terms is undermined by the structire of the political and economic system.

It is perverted that people feel they have to make a choice betweeen their opinons on issues like gun control and gay rights and the real issues of Wealth and Power. They should be apples and oranges in a political context.
