A poll showing the main concerns of Dem vs Rep voters. It's no wonder the left is unhappy. Everything is about feelings rather than actual problems.

Reviewed both lists. My interpretation is that it is the Republicans who are more concerned with perceived problems than actual problems. Republican concerns are mostly centered upon them being victims.

I'm sure we have a thread on it, Vin, but I'm a centrist and I consider lax immigration enforcement to be a serious problem, or potential problem. There's a reason Biden is continuing with the "children in cages" which, now that Biden is in command, are referred to as "facilities." Maybe it's time for a new thread on that, at least.

It was a list of 12 for which significant concern was expressed...therefore my response was not just directed to the top one. I stated an overall impression from looking at all 12.

Also, I'll throw this one in there. Most of the Republican concerns are centered upon how they believe things affect them personally, not society as a whole.

With the exception of High Taxes (which could debatably be bad for the entire economy), which of those items specifically "affect them personally"? Because when I look at that GOP list, it seems like they are all societal.

Those which either affect them personally via their affiliated groups or which are grossly imagined large society problems or both would be:

1) Lack of support for the police
2) Liberal bias in mainstream media
3) General moral decline of the country
4) Socialism
5) Antifa violence
6) China
7) Legal abortion in the third trimester
8) Election fraud
9) Tech company censorship
10) Discrimination against Christians

Now that you motivated me to create list I now see I could have more efficiently responded by stating: "All but the first one".

I don't agree with all on the Democrats' list but I believe that far more on their list have applicability to those outside of their affiliated groups or are not imagined or both.

And there's the problem. YOU think they are grossly imagined. Republicans think they are very real and extremely important, just like climate change is to the left. And you still haven't explained how any of these things are personal rather than societal. For instance, how is 'China' a personal issue?

Explain to me how this is one bit different from what you started this by saying: "It's no wonder the left is unhappy. Everything is about feelings rather than actual problems."

Is that not you starting that YOU believe all all what the Republicans believe ARE actual problems while NONE of what the Democrats believe are actual problems?

Again I stated: "Those which either affect them personally via their affiliated groups or which are grossly imagined large society problems or both would be"

Chine is not a "personal issue" but a "grossly imagined large society problem".

If they really believed the latter why are they all spending so much money on China products? Actions always speak for one's true values rather than the values one espouses.

China is a personal issue for people who are too lazy to learn to code.

AntiFa violence is a personal issue for people who are nazis and are worried about being targeted by them.

High taxes and socialism are a personal issue for people who have been able to avoid paying their fair share for years.

Liberal bias in mainstream media is a personal issue for people who aren't liberals.

Third trimester abortion is a personal issue for people with a magical friend in the sky.

Police shouldn't be supported, they're racists who imprison minorities disproportionately and have a license to murder. Not sure what the issue with this statement is.

Tech company censorship is a personal problem for the nazis they are censoring.

Discrimination against Christians is a personal problem for Christians.

General moral decline of country is a personal problem for people who think women shouldn't vote and aren't allowed to have a penis.

McWhorter is a genius and one of my favorite people to listen to, despite being as he describes a "cranky liberal Democrat". And it's all because he's one of a small number of voices willing to say true things, rather than the "right" things, about race.

I know his arguments about antiracism as a religion are couched in a mostly anti-religious context. Even reading them as a religious person, his points remain pretty much valid, and it's easy to interpret them as saying that antiracism as a religion detracts from and competes against true religion, which I believe it does.

Everyone has a religion (or "worldview" if you like) and McWhorter is writing from the perspective of his atheistic-materialistic-scientism outlook, which is just another religion, so his complaints against "religion" in general still apply to himself, and really the essay is describing how antiracism detracts from and competes against true religion. You can just plug in whichever true religion you want.

I do wonder what it would be like for somebody who is a member of the Church of Woke to read that.

Absolutely.

Oh, they would roll their eyes as he often says. If they even bothered to push through the first paragraph.
I'm glad you're a fan, too. I'm afraid he doesn't have enough of a following in this new woke world.

Do you guys listen to The Glenn Show podcast where Glenn Loury often talks to John McWhorter? That's one of my favorite podcasts. I hardly miss an episode. Those two guys are great.

I must have first encountered John McWhorter on C-Span's Book TV...would have been him being interviewed regarding one of his books. I was sufficiently impressed by it to buy several of his books.

I read through the above once. Quite long. Hope to be able to motivate myself to read is again.

Sent it on to several others.

I don’t have a problem with this. Only 50% of the population even pays any income tax. The tax payers are exploiting the non-tax payers by woefully underpaying them so they don’t even hit the threshold to pay tax at all.

Did you know women (with or without penii) get paid 70 cents on the dollar for men?

You're a fan, too? Excellent. I posted some of his videos on this forum in the past, including Bloggingheads, but I don't remember it getting much traction. Maybe Xan or Tortoise.

I am far more of a reader than a video watcher. Demands too much attention. Unless it's something that I can just listen to while I'm doing something else that is not fully demanding of my mind so that I can actually hear most of what I am listening to.

I am far more of a reader than a video watcher. Demands too much attention. Unless it's something that I can just listen to while I'm doing something else that is not fully demanding of my mind so that I can actually hear most of what I am listening to.


Just pretend it’s C-Span.


When I have C-Span on it does not get my 100% attention. I'm always doing something else while it is on.

In Britain they have made burglary a safe occupation. It's like OSHA for burglars.

Maybe this means UC San Diego will be pressured to rename its iconic Geisel Library?
