  •  You are correct (10+ / 0-)

    I really don't think most people have a clue - this is a war for the heart and soul of the US, and the other side is playing to win while our side is playing for a draw.

    •  this is the #1 weakness of progressives: (0+ / 0-)

      We aren't fighters by nature, whereas right-wingers are.  Sure there are lots of progressives in the military, but that comes from a progressive set of traditions and values.  The right wing are downright bloodthirsty.  

      We need to transform the left into a warrior culture that positively relishes doing battle and does not consider the job done until we have achieved utter crushing victory and subjected the enemy to utter crushing defeat.

      •  not warrier culture (0+ / 0-)

        I will resist will all my might any such transformation.
        I do not believe the ends justifies the means.  I know that How we resist conservative movement is as important as strong resistance.

        We must not only resist but also build our own selves up. But arts and faith and reason are our tools. Reframing using growth and development, not war metaphors!

        And crushing defeat usually brings a rebound war.
