BGC: The 5 Questions Which I Long To Ask My Liberal Compatriots




Generally, I avoid getting too political on this or any of my podcasts.

Why?

Well, there are plenty of great podcasters out there whom thrive on talking politics.  Alas, I am not one of them. However, I do question certain commonplace practices of both Liberals and Conservatives.

Now, I happen to be very socially liberal with a modicum of fiscal conservatism.

Yet, I still found myself getting into nasty social media scuffles with...other Liberals. Some of them declared that I was in fact "Liberal Lite" and not really about helping others.

A majority of these raucous disagreements occurred because I dared to question the poster's logic on a couple of key points. In my world, if I am questioning something, it's because I am unclear about an aspect of something.

I do not make it a habit of publicly questioning people as a way to make them look foolish.

No, I am more of a "Hey, you sound crazy right now." type of dissenter.

Anyway, below are the 5 Questions which I long to ask my Liberal compatriots:

1. How deep should a boycott go?
2. What should those whom are  either born into privilege or have acquired it do to help the rest of the world?
3.Where exactly is the fine line between shaming someone and holding them accountable?
4. Can I disagree with elements of Liberalism and still be considered a liberal?
5. Is anyone else noticing the growing rift between Liberals? Either we are all overly optimistic or everything is a dark Kafkaesque drama.

Below is a link to my latest Bougie Girl Coaching podcast entitled: 
"The 5 Questions Which I Long To Ask My Liberal Compatriots"

(Please note that I also have some questions for those on the Conservative side of the aisle which I will list at a later date. )
