Conservatives and Liberals
The eternal conflict between conservatives (fundamentalists) and liberals (humanists) is, in part, linguistic. The former use literal (denotative) language, while the latter use figurative (connotative) language. Perhaps this conflict is a fallacy of false choices, since both linguistic forms are equally valid, and thus mutually compatible. So let's syncretically reconcile our political and religious differences, by increasing our semantic tolerance of language.
