Colliding Worldviews

Dragon Slayers’ and Panda Huggers’ only disagreement is not about China. Their opposition to one another goes much deeper and reflects a deep divide in how conservative and progressive political theory is understood and implemented as public policy. Both camps disagree on the role of politics, with Dragon Slayers tending to believe that the state should always be minimized, and Panda Huggers tending to think the state has a role to play. These positions give either camp the upper hand at particular moments of history.
