“Teamwork” isn’t all it’s smacked up to be. What actually makes people quarrel is confusion about what “game” they are playing.
If we’re all playing basketball, and some guy comes along and joins the game, but he starts expecting us to follow football rules… well, it won’t be long before we start arguing. That’s because we would no longer be playing “basketball”—we’d be playing “basketball de facto football”… where we use basketball words, call it “basketball”, but, actually, it’s football.
Probably, we wouldn’t get along with that guy. He might start condemning us for “not being team players”. Actually, we are great team players, but, we’re a team at playing “basketball”, not “basketball de facto football”.
The only people who could get along with him, well, probably don’t like to call things what they are. His only friends—the “team players” as he refers to them—like to play football, call it “basketball”, and tell everyone else we’re stupid and “don’t play well with others”. · · · →
Liberals get too much credit for destroying America. True, they claim to “liberate” the country from everything that made us who we are—including our culture with its historic toleration of foolishness. Liberals are merely a loud minority. But who gives them power? It isn’t the conscientious Conservatives. No, Liberals only have power because of spineless so-called “leaders”—more commonly known as “Moderates”. Since Liberal talk despises most Moderate Republicans, it’s fair to say that “Moderates” are everyone’s enemy. That’s what happens when you try to be everyone’s friend. Just ask George HW Bush.
