I have had a running dialogue on Medium with a liberal atheist European (J...) for sometime. It has spread over multiple posts with back-and-forth comments on a number of topics. We have been respectful and curious toward each other's beliefs.
Is America the strongest nation in the world because we are the most entrenched in Capitalism vs. Socialism? Can we, or even should we, retain our position on the world stage if we continue down the "woke" path? Is that where the fear and resistance is coming from?
I think these are questions we should be asking as we decide, as a nation, who we are and who we wish to be.
