“In a recent post over at The Radical Moderate’s Guide to Life, Lauren talks about replacing political binaries and a political compass with something that seems more amorphous to me. She calls it a political landscape. I think there is something useful about this move, but I am not sure I am fully on board. I’ll briefly explain why here. Most importantly, as problematic as binaries are — and I agree they are extremely problematic — they often help us understand something.” (11/20/23)
