"When you call names, or when you approve of someone who does, you may be part of the problem."On NPR yesterday they had a program reviewing the conflict at Kent State in 1970 where four students were killed, and others injured, when Ohio National Guard troops fired on them. Without rehashing all the details that led up to that outrageous event, what stood out to me in the report was the interviewee's description of how many people at the time approved of what happened and thought the unarmed students deserved to be murdered by the Guardsmen for being unpatriotic "dirty hippies" and such. That was all effectively before my time, so I don't have any personal memory of what things were like back then, but apparently the rhetoric on both sides was rather extreme, allowing and encouraging people to demonize and dehumanize each other, and led to that tragic outcome, and a similar event 10 days later at Jackson State in Mississippi.
An interesting piece, and largely informative. If it is true, then it would be of value to explore the flip side and come up with metrics on the areas of "broad agreement." What exactly are those?-zimaroll
