Don't miss this very important discussion about David Neiwert's latest book, The Eliminationists. This session was hosted by Digby and has some really important insights and comments that are worth reading. One of the most important points that comes from this post is succinctly stated by Dave about how to take the discussion to the right-wing critics:
The thing to realize is that you don’t have to compromise your beliefs one whit to make inroads. What you have to do is demonstrate that your beliefs have integrity, that you have moral and ethical reasons behind them, and that your firmness in them is not a product of blind ideology but thoughtful common sense.
Truly words to live by.
