This from Glenn Beck is unusual, unexpected, and strange as he never seems to want to unify or a coming together of people in referring human beings, it’s a wow moment to say the least.
I have never heard him say anything that allows me to think Glenn Beck has an open mind or that he can be fair in his judgment of others, could I/we be wrong, what do you think of this change/tone of Glenn Beck?
But as people, wouldn’t we all benefit from trying to empathize with people we disagree with?
I consider myself a “classical liberal” — a.k.a. “constitutional conservative” — and I believe the greatness of our country lies in our founders’ creation of a system that allows and encourages all voices to be heard. The only way for our society to work is for each of us to respect the views of others, and even try to understand and empathize with one another.
I have always tried to work toward this goal, even though I have often been guilty of conflating the individual with the whole.
