About this title


Liberals say conservatives have blind belief in religion and the Founders. Conservatives say liberals have blind belief in government, mainstream news, and liberal leaders. Both believe the other has blind spots. Moderates of either persuasion try not to have blind spots or blind beliefs. Being human, I may have both. When I mention my beliefs in this book, I explain why I have them. If you think them blind, please let me know. Below are a few. I give reasons inside. Here is my summary of three centuries of European and American history. Around America's founding, kings controlled Europe and they did dumb and bad things. Later, socialists and communists controlled Europe and they did dumb and bad things. Currently, bureaucrats and bankers control Europe, and they are doing dumb and bad things. Meanwhile, our Founders said wait, history shows the problem isn't who controls or their goals. The problem is control. Concentrations of power are the problem. Things work out better by dispersing and balancing power. Americans stuck with that until about 1913. Then, we started copying Europe. Big mistake! Serious psychological manipulation started about then as well. My purpose is not to convince you of the above. The purpose is to convince you that we should talk about such things calmly and that such conversations are productive if approached with the right attitude and methods. The will of the people forms when people who care, sincerely talk. When I was a kid (late 40s and 50s), cowboy movies taught morals and good guys were easy to spot. They wore white hats versus black hats for villains. In this book, the only bad guys are the power-hungry and those who bully and deceive; the rest of us are various shades of good. This book helps the good get better.
