Give the people what they want

What do the people want? An excuse.

Specifically, an excuse to ignore the moral forces that ought to cause them to change course. An excuse to gag the voice of conscience.

For round-heeled progressives who value dialog about truth over truth itself, hearing the words, "Open hearts. Open minds. Fair-minded words," is all the excuse they want.
