Uilleand BS: So. Initiative vs Liberal Progression (71* d) RE: BS: So. Initiative vs Liberal Progression 17 Nov 99

Chet, I think we are just talking semantics, but are essentially agreeing. I feel that you are using the word meaning the same way I refer to it as power. EJ, in theory I believe my suggestion would work, in this reality I agree with you that it wouldn't. Too many people on both sides believe in its power. The same is true for the 'politically incorrect' words. We change our vocabularies like dirty laundry, constantly coming up with new 'less offensive' names for the same thing, because we are unable to face and heal our underlying emotions with respect to the cause. I believe in free expression, but I also believe in being sensitive to others' feelings when it doesn't compromise my truth. And it seems that the majority of South Carolinians agree. Why flaunt a symbol, even if not offensive, but empowering to you, just because you can, if it seriously upsets your neighbour. Where has common courtesy gone?
