AN INTERESTING DISCUSSION

A regular reader, prompted by my rumination on the problem of reintegrating the extreme rightists into American society, suggested that I take a look at this discussion in the TIMES.  On the one hand, it somewhat sets my teeth on edge.  On the other hand, what after all is the alternative?  If we do not talk, there is not much left but trying to kill one another, which strikes me as unsatisfactory.

How would you begin the talk with your socio-political doppelganger who is now wondering about the problem of reintegrating the extreme leftists into American society?
