Don’t be too radical. Don’t expect perfection.
“The idea of purity and you’re never compromised and you’re always politically woke and all that stuff, you should get over that quickly.”
“The world is messy. There are ambiguities. People who do really good stuff have flaws. People who you are fighting may love their kids and share certain things with you.”
Criitizing on social media:
“If all you’re doing is casting stones, you’re probably not going to get that far. That’s easy to do.”
Good ideas from a good president. As president, he recognized, accepted, even acquiesced to organizations and institutions – the CIA, insurance companies, more. Not because he approved of all they did, but because he approved of some of what they did and because they were powerful. As unmitigated enemies, they would have prevented health insurance reform. As unmitigated enemies, they would have prevented the nuclear weapons deal with Iran.
Even cautious change can beget a backlash. Nevertheless, the Affordable Care Act still stands. The deal with Iran still stands far all the other countries that negotiated it.
When Trump is not reelected, a sharper backlash will begin. America will overturn the “achievements” of a dangerous and radical regime. That’s what happens to undemocratically achieved radical change
