Without Labels

My liberal uncle again tried to close an argument by claiming that political labels don't mean much anymore. Liberals always say that.

Well, there's this old quote from sci-fi author Robert Heinlein:

"Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire."

But I doubt that this formulation would make things any easier.
