Substack Liberals

This is apparently a new category. I listened to Leighton Woodhouse and Ethan Strauss laughing over it, as one had been accused of being one and the other thought he probably qualified as well. I think it is a legit description, of liberals who have just had it with some aspects of the left as currently constituted. I have said for years that leaving liberalism does not mean entering conservatism.  It might mean becoming apolitical or even anti-political; or mean moving to a single issue or cause; it might mean becoming libertarian - there are still a few left-libertarians out there; it might mean a refocus on religious issues instead, seeing them as more to the overall point; and yes, it might mean giving a new look at conservative ideas.
