Explaining Liberal Thinking In A Single Column
By John Hawkins

"The only things that a liberal can do wrong is to be insufficiently liberal".

Liberals love to think of themselves as intellectual and nuanced, but liberalism is incredibly simplistic. It's nothing more than "childlike emotionalism applied to adult issues." Very seldom does any issue that doesn't involve pandering to their supporters boil down at its core level to more than feeling "nice" or "mean" to liberals. This makes liberals ill equipped to deal with complex issues.

Since liberals tend to support or oppose policies based on how those policies make them feel about themselves, they do very little intellectual examination of whether the policies they advocate work or not. That's because it doesn't matter to them whether the policy is effective or not; it matters whether advocating the policy makes them feel "good" or "bad," "compassionate" or "stingy," "nice" or "mean."

Because of this, liberalism has more in common with religion than it does with other political ideologies like conservatism or libertarianism. Moreover, liberal beliefs are more like religious doctrine than any sort of battle-tested policies that bear up under logic or examination.

Liberalism is like adding politics to fun, it ceases to be fun anymore and looks and acts foolish. Or dangerous. Liberalism is also a lot like being an alcoholic too. Its all about emotionalism and dsyfunction and self-centeredness, lots of self-centeredness or ''passion'' , as the libs say. And its about never taking responsibility for your actions, blaming others, being insuffarably self-righteous, and self-righteouness is just phony form of respectability and then when the dust setlles, the dust the alcoholic/liberal has created, its on to the next booze-up or election. Yup, the two are alot a like. J'Mac.
