"Manners" and democracy
WWW--Manners are for a police state, not a democracy. But it's good to stay well-manicured, yes. How about growing a pair and finally growing-up?
Postscript, 08.06.2009: "Unity" is for totalitarian societies. Those who yearn for this are of a similar mindset to those people who want to march-in-line. Democracy is contentious and bitter with plenty of flinging-of-bile. There will be no great moment of unity beyond the shared expression that we all want liberty and that we all yearn for freedom. There's your real "unity," but it doesn't mean things are suddenly going to nice and neat. Democracy means getting in their and arguing, disagreeing. If you don't get that, you don't understand democracy and are probably authoritarian-minded, which is un-American.
