8. Those are helpful definitions:

from the modern bomb-throwing Republican who sees society as something to be exploited for personal gain or power; or the far-left who mistrust 'opportunity', and want rules to impose equality of outcome.

I wonder if we have failed to define ourselves, or whether we've allowed others to define us, or whether we are exactly what we look like: something that is hard to pin down. ? EDIT: Or placing too much importance on how the opposition defines us in the first place, and the mass media that repeats and reinforces this perception?
