My take on the left/right paradigm.


Recommended Posts

In my estimation the difinitive articulation of the difference between a conservative and a liberal, to wit; A conservative forms his or her own opinion based on the deliberation of facts concerning a given subject from as many independent sources as possible and trusts -but verifies- the subject natter before arriving at an informed opinion. Choosing whether to act or not act and which action or course of inaction to opt for is another matter entirely whereas a liberal does not contemplate an opinion when prompted by stimuli but rather automatically and immediately reacts emotionally as a foot does because it is attached to a knee which has just been struck with a medical reflex hammer. It knows not why it lurches. It knows not to where it lurches. It knows not. It simply lurches because it must.

 

Thoughts?

Nice attempt at psychological projection. Fail.

well both parties will blame the other party and more division will be created which will lead to more blaming and inaction which will lead to nothing being done which will lead to more blame which will lead to more inaction which will compound the problem and thirty years from now it will be Bush's Fault!

Most of the time that's how it happens.

 

ie: The behavior of the left before and after the election was the same...emotion.
