The Freedom Caucus: Dualism and a Better Grasp of Politics
Today’s vocabulary word is dualism.
Dualism is a noun for belief systems that allow for only two
possibilities. Think “black” and “white” or “right” and “wrong” or “light” and “dark.”
Dualism is evident in the most common conversations about
American politics. There are Republicans and there are Democrats, or there are
liberals and conservatives, or, in the current presidential nomination contest,
establishment and outsider candidates.
