The Aims Community College diversity council doesn't get it. They are offering a program on politics and diversity on Friday that will teach others how to participate in discussions with people they may not necessarily agree with. Welcome to the land of Kool-Aid.
This promises to be one of those incipid forums that urges everyone to be tolerant and get along. Funny. Someone forgot to invite homosexual extremists, and the members of the occupy movement. Some of these are advocating the use of violence and refuse to dialogue over any course of action except violent, destructive behavior. (Sam has held personal conversations with members of both groups, and this is an accurate statement based on those talks.) So who is suckered in by these kinds of forums? You got it. The "moderate," the "RINO," and the weak, stupid conservative.
If you are one of those people, be sure to attend this forum. Then later, when you are stomped on by someone that isn't playing by your rules, ask yourself what happened. The answer will come as you heal from your bruises. The enemy doesn't play by rules. They intend to win. Do you? Then you might have to get a little stronger, and stop listening to corporate Kool-Aid lectures. But some people never learn. They lose, usually by playing the middle of the road. Do-nothing meetings are filled with these kinds of people, thinking they are making a difference when they are not. If you aren't changing society, you aren't doing anything, no matter what Aims tells you. If you don't believe me, look over the last 50 years and ask yourself who won the culture battle in that era.
