For the most part, the Daily Economist tries to stick to primarily economic, financial, and monetary topics. But the sad truth of today's society is, politics is now entrenched in every portion of our lives. From the bedrooms, to what we eat, to what we are allowed to think.
On Sept. 5, Jon Stewart and the Daily Show completely obliterated once and for all the myth that liberals and the Democratic party is the 'big tent' of inclusion, and that hate really starts in the people who claim the affiliation, and not by those who simply have a different viewpoint on the matters of the world.
Most Americans would like to just live out their lives, enjoying the fruits of their labor, and finding the foundational desires of freedom of religion, speech, and the ability to succeed without government or activists mandating how you should do so.
Unfortunately, there are those who see tolerance as you being forced to accept their standards and viewpoints, and tolerance and compromise is in reality capitulation. Where Christians find the action to be intolerable, liberals find the person themselves to be the problem, and thus hate and intolerance is more personal, than a topic open for discussion.
Welcome to the new America, as seen through the eyes of those who want to force not only their desires and viewpoints onto the majority, but with the agenda of destroying any alternative to their brave new world of hate.
