Liberal vs Conservative

A piece on a very tailored view on liberal vs. conservative. Have a read, I'm just posting my reaction.

  • The description fits a libertarian much more than a conservative.
  • Both conservative and liberal depend on the context, be it fiscal, social, religious, etc.
  • Religious conservatives insist you worship as they do
  • Moral conservatives want to put tight restrictions on how you live
  • The current crop of neocons want the rich to pay a lower tax rate than the poor, even though the impact on them is much less
There's fair, and there's "screw the poor, they can't defend themselves anyway..."
