A Commitment to Change, Not Compromise

In his May 22 article, Neal Gabler states that the rightward revolution is transforming us into a nation without compassion or tolerance. He says conservatism is defining and drawing the battle lines that tell us that they are easily winning the day.

We agree that if we define our country by the hierarchical perspective of the right wing, yes, they are on top and therefore in charge. However, our vision for the right wing is different from how they see themselves. When we step out of their hierarchy and become fortified by historical trends, their position looks vulnerable.
