49. The Existential Dance of Tradition and Progress - [Roots, Growth, and Six Ways to be a Conservative Liberal]

How to be both a conservative and a liberal

Tradition and progress are a dance: we need to balance both roots and growth together.

First, we need to confront the two main problems that separate these perspectives dealing with sociological superiority. You can project the complexity of incoherency on another because you stake your identity in your perspective or you can have a proper sense of proportion.

Second, we explore the practical considerations of this topic as a whole.

This deals with recognizing the value of each and participating in the common journey to continue the human narrative. Use the past and participate in the active unfolding of the future.

Becoming Human

It’s an infinite conversation, really. What does it mean to be alive? How should we live? What is the best, healthiest way to exist and do all of the things that make up life?

There’s a lot to explore.

And even more questions to ask.

But that’s what we are here to do.

I’m Tyler Kleeberger and consider me a curator of these conversations. I am, conveniently, a nerd so I see it as my job to go and discover everything I can about a topic or idea and use any field imaginable — from philosophy to psychology, economics to history, and everything in between — and then share it with you.

I hope you’ll consider going on this journey with me. We’re trying to get smarter and live better. You can find more information at tylerkleeberger.com.

Let’s learn, let’s grow, and let’s become more human.
