Just a couple of quich thought on the discussion following the supreme court decision this morning. We here the meme, "do not let the perfect become the enemy of the good.". In response I would say do not let incremental change become the enemy of a functional minimum of human decency. Also we here that change does not come over night. To this one must wonder how such arguments can be used to re-enforce the status quo, or at least in relation to howi the status quo cannot be changed significantly in a short period of time. These same arguments come up regarding the war on terror, climate change, and most of the signifcant issues facing us.
I am not claiming there is not some truth and wiggle room within these arguments, but I worry that the voices of conservative change among progressive forces is tending to be the dominant meme and it worries me
