Sarah Palin, Political Conservatism And The Axis Of Violence

The essay on my BLOG, titled Sarah Palin Stokes The Fire Of The U.S. Culture of Violence describes how the dimension of Political Conservatism becomes aligned with Violence and Political Liberalism with Non-Violence. https://ttfuture.org/blog/1181 and at

Paul Krugman has noted that there are Two Public Moralities, which reflect the Two Americas that have existed since the days of our Founding Fathers.

These Two Public Moralities are rooted in the Pain and Pleasure experiences

Sarah Palin Stokes The Fire Of The U.S. Culture Of Violence

America is a Culture of Violence. Assassination of our political leaders has a long
history in this nation. Abraham Lincoln, John F. Kennedy, Robert F. Kennedy, Martin
Luther King, Jr. are in recent memory of this history and now we must add liberal
Democratic Representative Gabrielle Gifford, 8th District, Arizona, as a potential victim.
It is of more than passing interest that the victims of these assassinations represent the
liberal wing of America political thought and action. Questions must be raised as to the
origins of political/social conservatism in the genesis of these assassinations.
