We can disagree, agreeably…

The whole American proposition, in many ways, is encapsulated in the first amendment (freedom of speech, freedom of religion), which means: an open forum of debate that we can disagree about the things that matter most, agreeably in civil society—that’s part of the American proposition. But you need a disciplined life of intellectual virtue to pull that off; and we don’t have that, largely, in our culture.
