Doug Muder's 'Red Family, Blue Family.'
Doug Muder, the Unitarian Univeraslist who has been posting insightful political essays as Pericles over at Daily Kos, has published his synthesis of George Lakoff and James M. Ault Jr in an essay on his personal website. "Red Family, Blue Family: Making Sense of the Values Issue" is available in a downloadable pdf and in a Web version. Lakoff is the author of Moral Politics: How Liberals and Conservatives Think and the current bestseller, Don't Think of an Elephant: Know Your Values and Frame the Debate. Ault is the author of an engaging book of religious sociology, Spirit and Flesh: Life in a Fundamentalist Baptist Church.
Update 3.3.05: Camassia responds to Doug's essay with some very perceptive and theologically grounded insights.
