34. a curious response
It is true that those quotes do not articulate a solution. To conclude that they are therefore empty is a bit surprising. I didn't realize that a solution had to be present, and I must now consider holding every subsequent quote I read to that same test. I wonder how many will pass muster. Perhaps as many as 1% will make it.

On the other hand, we do have a political discourse in this country, and some subjects are on the table for discussion whereas others are not. Some topics may only be broached in certain ways, while others may be initiated relatively freely.

I might even stick my neck out really far and postulate that there have been some political changes in the last 35 years, and we might even have something to gain in understanding where we are by looking back at where we've been.

Naw, that's crazy. You're right. Quoting MLK without adding solutions is totally empty. No benefit whatsoever. Sorry for wasting everyone's time.
