Answering Back: A Liberal Toolkit We live in an age of ever-increasing political divisiveness and our rhetoric reflects that. No matter the topic- trickle-down economics, welfare, social security, health care, immigration control, war, economics- our discourse seems to degenerate into shouting matches using jargon. Wouldn't we benefit from a different kind of discussion? Of course. And in his book, Answering Back: Liberal Responses to Conservative Arguments, David Coates takes a stab at that. We hear what he has to say. Also be sure to catch our discussion with the author of The Young Conservative's Field Guide.
