    Burt, thank you for this; it’s awesome. I frequently find myself challenging some folk here, Roger, Jason in particular. This isn’t always because I disagree with them, I often think I actually agree on some core central idea, but I’m challenging the language and perspective.

    That said, I do take so umbrage with ‘oppressed/oppressor’ axis for liberals; because ‘oppressor’ suggests active agency to oppress; and I don’t think ‘oppressing’ is the goal so much as a side effect. I’d prefer an axis of opportunity, perhaps disadvantaged/advantaged.

    This helps me to more clearly think through that language; to perhaps frame it in ways that help us find the centers of agreement.Report
