What makes a liberal?
I read this article today and I'm curious what the liberals and conservatives will have to say about this whole line of though. For those of you who want a quick quote to get the juices flowing:
At the heart of liberalism is the naive belief that people are basically good. As a result of this belief, liberals rarely blame people for the evil they do. Instead, they blame economics, parents, capitalism, racism, and anything else that can let the individual off the hook.
You really gotta read the whole thing because it is very well thought out.
