  1. I’m all in favor of ideals, but surely the acceptance of diversity so well expressed in your third paragraph IS an ideal, and thus failing to face it (as a distraction from the problem) makes it part of the problem. We can’t “start working toward building a united nation” by not facing those parts of the problem that divide us.

    • Good question/suggestion — although it seems like a way of not confronting the problem (about accepting diversity) head-on, at least it’s a start….and we’ve got to start somewhere.

  2. I agree with with you, we should not be fighting over words in a document writing many decades ago. We all should be working at creating a nation and a world where everyone has the same potential and opportunities. Liberty and Justice for All is the main point of the document in my opinion.
