Man could not be more right

A THOUGHT FOR TODAY:
A strong nation, like a strong person, can afford to be gentle, firm, thoughtful, and restrained. It can afford to extend a helping hand to others. It is a weak nation, like a weak person, that must behave with bluster and boasting and rashness and other signs of insecurity
          -Jimmy Carter, 39th US President, Nobel laureate (b. 1924)

I think there's a cultural war on the horizon, maybe it's already here, between those who think like Mr. Carter and those who don't, who think that the narrow definition of what they believe must apply to everyone, a kind of forced inclusion. I also believe we'll weather this storm as we have so many others.

This war has been going on since the 80's; it's just that every time it surfaces, the far right and left grow stronger and I'm not sure how many or what lies in the middle anymore.

I saw so much polarization during Bush's administration that saddened me greatly.

The lack of a responsible media that reports and doesn't take sides doesn't help much.
