In fact there are very few classical liberals. Instead, as with skews, what we have are Fabian's. And they are evil. Wolf in sheep's clothing.



Thanks from Jimgorn

I think we need to get BordenMilk a dictionary for Christmas.

He obviously doesn't know the definition of ruthless ... there are probably many other words he misuses.

Perhaps we really agree with him, but don't know it because he doesn't use the correct words to express himself.
Thanks from RNG

If you consider that ruthless, read some of cancon and patriot's posts. That was softball.

Correct.... what we are calling "Conservatives" today are classical Liberals...And what we are calling "Liberals" or "Progressives" are Fabians...

Conservatives believe that most things work out better if left to free markets, traditions, precedence, families, etc., while liberals will go out of their way to defend their own unique vision of the world as they see it through their eyes. They are not solely defending a set of hypotheses about external events, they are in a sense defending their very souls -- and the zeal and ruthlessness with which they defend their vision should not be surprising under these circumstances! At the end of the day, everyone would prefer to be proved right rather than proved wrong, but the point here is that there are no such comparable ego stakes involved among conservatives.

This key difference certainly helps to explain the greater tendency of liberals to see those they disagree with as enemies who are morally lacking. While there are individual variations in this, I have certainly seen left-wing arguments devolve into meaningless insults as opposed to flourishing into a display of both logic and reason.

"Disagree with someone on the right and he is likely to think you obtuse, wrong, foolish, and a dope. Disagree with someone on the left and he is more likely to think you selfish, a sell-out, insensitive, and possibly evil." Joseph Epstein
I agree with your statement except for "everyone would prefer to be proved right rather than wrong." I relish having someone try and prove me wrong. I am 99% right and 1% wrong and if you prove me wrong you just improved my chances of being 100% right. A homeless man that I rented from a temp agency proved me wrong when I knew I was right. I told him you start full time tomorrow.
Thanks from BordenMilk

Do you have anything of importance to add to the conversation, or are you just here to endlessly insult everyone who disagrees with you?

You are 5% wrong and 95% right.

The ONLY person responsible for the downfall of Nixon was Nixon.
