There Are No Liberals, and There Are No Conservatives

There are no liberals and there are no conservatives, really. There are only people who believe in a fair degree of sharing and mutual help, and people who don’t.

There are only people who agree that there are innate human rights, and people who don’t.

There are only people who believe that foreign persons are as human as we are, and people who don’t.

There are only people who believe in the value of science, and people who don’t.

There are only people who believe that empathy isĀ  vital, and people who don’t.

There are only people who treasure the natural world, and people who don’t.

There are only people who believe that women are equal to men, and people who don’t.

There are only people who believe that institutions can be an expression of decency and kindness, and people who don’t.

There are no liberals, or conservatives. Political categorization leads to knee-jerk, mindless judgments, and obscures commonality.
