Political Polarization and the Dignity of Man

In a rare moment of almost general consensus amongst the America people, it is agreed that the sooner that members of Congress overcome their political differences and ideologies, the better the nation will be served as a whole. That could mean any number of benefits to the nation, but in this moment, it means that the lives of millions could be effectively improved by recognizing their innate dignity, their humanness, and not condemning them to lives of what will most likely be systemic poverty or cruel and unwarranted death. We, as a state and as a people, cannot keep condemning our brothers and sisters to misery or death pro nostra et bonum.
