The election of Trump threw the chess board up. The pieces are all over the place. That’s upsetting to a lot of people, but what I think is there’s a lot of fertile ground for good ideas.

Think about your friends on the Left – are they tolerant of people who aren’t for gay marriage? Or of people who are pro-life? These used to be just political differences, and now they are a referendum on what type of person you are and whether you can be in someone’s life at all.
Do you know people on the Right who are tolerant of people who are for gay marriage and are pro-choice? I actually do, plenty of them. When there is a disagreement, I see way more people on the Right… more often willing to agree to disagree rather than to de-friend or to smear.
Sometimes inaction is worse than action.
