America in the balance

This simplified chart shows how moderate America feels about containment measures.

The right promotes individual choice. A community choosing is oppressive if not repressive. A greater self argument.

It’s pretty easy to see how distorted our two world views are. The question we all need to ask is this: Can post-election politics return us to balance?
