To my conservative brothers and sisters

We're two sides of the same coin, you and I. Divided and conquered, manipulated by the propaganda of mass media. We all aspire to be rich and famous, to be part of the 1%, to live the good life that we see on T.V. And we all get our news from corporate outlets, where fact and opinion are presented as one and the same. The left-of-center side of the public debate is more attractive for me, just as the right draws you. But it doesn't make sense for us to be so divided, to be at each others throats over hot-button issues when we all have a stake in the things that they're not talking about: issues of human survival.
