MoyersTalker Bill T
Re: Bawers interview: We've been talking about democracy and tolerance. We have wondered how it is that people mean well with tolerance at first but go so far that intolerable behaviors are tolerated. A democratic republic is not the same as pure democracy so something in the structure of the nation must preserve the values necessary to keep the nation free for all. No person should be above laws, nor should any group or culture. We are a nation of laws which must accept cultural differences of appearance but not differences of behavior. I hope Americans do not forget what it takes to live together.
