Uncivil Rhetoric, Uncivil Realities

By Leonard Fein

Forward Association, 2009

Income inequality and unemployment skyrocket, and uncivil political discourse is the only response that America's politicians offer. It is not just the jobs and pensions and mortgages that are disappearing, but the very concept of the American dream, that opportunity is our birthright and hard work our ferryman's fee. The right screams for blood and the left begs for civility, but repair must begin with acknowledgment and respect for our neighbor's pain. And then, perhaps real change will come.
