Last week's discussion, as can happen at KBOO, veered into unexpectedly heated and fertile territory. Who knew that July 4 fireworks could be the source of such controversy?
The resulting discourse begged several questions: What is the nature of progressivism? What does it mean to be a liberal in the early 21st Century? What is our struggle about, and how ought we to struggle? Why should we struggle in the first place? And just how pretentious is talk radio, anyway?
