Maybe we could start to end this cold war by doing one thing. It seems to me that way too much time is spent on the opposition’s motives. In opposing something you should focus on its consequences, and that you don’t think that as a nation we want them. Maybe your neighbor doesn’t understand those bad consequences. What you shouldn’t do is actually say he wants bad things for the country. There’s no way to know why someone believes something, only what they say they want to do.
