I don’t have a problem with disagreement. It’s healthy for a republic to disagree, but this lack of respect for the individual has gone too far. The labels are now being used to demagogue and demonize than to clarify. They have all turned into pejoratives. If I agree with the author on 95% of subjects, but disagree on this one in particular, am I a neocon?
