4 Use What You’ve got! “…The process of this is called dissention, ‘the great problem of America today…its cancer,’ as Daniel Boorstin claims in The Decline of Radicalism. Boorstin claims in a liberal society—such as America—dissent is the root of all problems…” Disagreement is part of the inherent nature of humans.

5 Use what you’ve got! “Disagreement is part of the inherent nature of humans. People have been disagreeing since the beginning of time and disagreement has led to change. While those who disagree and resolve their arguments, there are others who stand by and dissent. Those who dissent are the minority of America. Those who dissent do not argue; they quarrel. In The Decline of Radicalism, by Daniel J. Boorstin, Boorstin believes that disagreement is essential to democracy, while dissention is detrimental. Boorstin is correct in his distinction between disagreement and dissent.
