Better Late Than Never?

It can be very hard to be a latecomer to a point of view. As people like Rep. Liz Cheney have discovered, you not only anger the people with whom you used to agree, but you don’t get a lot of love from your new allies either. They’re less likely to say “Better late than never” than “What took you so long?” Yet if we are committed to honest self-examination and the changes that it can inspire, don’t we need to support people when they try to change? Today we’ll look at how that might work, whether in the intimacy of a family dinner or a setting as public as Congress.
