30 Years On, I think that “Postliberal” sums it up best
Love your input over there. And not only do the ideas you referenced not work, some of their proponents demonstrably are poopyheads!
There is a concise but accessible discussion by OneCosmos of this subject at Shrinkwrapped (Who are they)(referring to 'liberals'). Please see the comments dated 1/12/06.http://shrinkwrapped.blogs.com/blog/2006/01/who_are_they.html#commentsAs you, AVI, having lived through Kennedy and Humphrey, I still fail to see why we have the present political landscape. There are few civilized choices. I am both amazed and disgusted. ------(excerpt from onecosmos)No classical liberal would ever agree to government enforced racism, categorizing people by group, campus speech codes, confiscatory taxes, stifling government regulation. Nor would a liberal condone the attacks on religion, as classical liberals always understood the importance of a virtuous populace. Liberals always equally emphasized responsibilities and obligations with rights and entitlements, and were not naive about the propensity for human evil.
