For Liberals, It's Always 1968
Here's an interesting little article which hits on a theme
that I've certainly explored often. A big part of the problem is that those who learned the lessons of the intervening years (like me) left liberalism, so by definition there are no elders in the movement who acknowledge the failures since then. And anyway young liberals especially are disinclined to learn the lessons of the past.
See also The Glittering Eye
, which makes some valid points about the article. I'd quibble here:I never once heard any liberal say that conservatives were stupid. Contrariwise, over the years I’ve heard all too many Democrats refer to Republicans as “evil” but never “stupid”.
Never? Liberals divide the conservative movement into two segments: the leaders and the followers. The leaders are evil, the followers are stupid or rich.
