Care Bear Stare

I was looking through some older bookmarks (specifically, I was looking for some pages for a multi-part work that’s been percolating in my mind for months, and which I’m now putting to (metaphorical) paper), and I found these two posts that describe the “Care Bear Stare” mode of political thought found in segments of the American political spectrum, both Left and Right. Namely, this is the belief that all problems are surmountable if only we care hard enough (Left), or have enough will (Right).
