9. The continuing failure to name, claim, and promote our values baffles me.

“There is an inherent claim of neutrality, objectivity, tolerance, and openness within liberalism that is often exploited by the right.” Thank you for clearly identifying these liberal values.

Why do we buy into the false narrative that our values make us weak, when they are actually the foundation of our power? The right uses our strengths against us because we allow them to be trampled on the battlefield of ideas instead of picking them up to use as a shield, much less a sword. We also need to define the right’s “values,” and challenge our fellow citizens to choose.
