Richard Pressl With entirely different backgrounds and moral focus, Democrats and Republicans, as well as the unaffiliated, believe America is on the wrong track – and each collective is becoming increasingly rigid, mentally and ethically inflexible, and focused solely on holding their ground while blaming others – and actually trying to sabotage any effort toward progressive joint action or purpose.
