on striving for a "more confident pluralism"

A nice essay by John Inazu in The Hedgehod Review, including a wonderful story about Jerry Falwell and Larry Flynt...

In no particular order, barriers to a "more confident pluralism" (from all sorts of people on the Right and on the Left):
-defensiveness and fear
-ignorance and insularity
-self-righteousness and intolerance
-lack of genuine/deep relationships in general and empathy in particular
-a general fondness for using the coercive powers of govt against others
