In my general romps through various blogs involving leadership, I stumbled onto a very interesting post, that is very relevant to, well, just about everything here in PRSI, and how much our knowledge and interpretation of the words "conservative", "liberal", and "social" are in today's society. I found this to be very refreshing, and would like to open up a rather cordial discussion about them. Enjoy. http://orrinwoodward.blogharbor.com/blog/_archives/2010/11/6/4673745.html In a LOT of ways, Mr. Woodward is right, especially in the historical sense. It was right around that time which we had transitioned from the Agrarian Age to the Industrial Age, which a huge shift in wealth had occurred, and government expanded. With that, came the responsibility of power, which went out the window (Stock Market Crash of 1929 rings a bell). But thinking about it, we've been in a State-type power for quite a while, and while Blues and Reds can argue their talking points, pundits stomp their feet all they want, and those calling themselves "anti-Anti" with know real knowledge into what they are saying get on their soapbox, absolutely nothing is being done about the real problem that has gone on for almost a century. In the meantime, Patriot Acts, bailouts, and more from the pundits slowly brainwash us into not seeing what is happening under our noses. After reading this, and looking up some of the things Mr. Woodward recommends, it really makes you wonder if the politicians, let alone the voting public, really know what they are getting themselves into, and how things shift each year elections come up..
