a href=”http://stuartschneiderman.blogspot.com/2010/03/liberal-intolerance.html”Stuart Schneiderman on liberal intolerance:/abr /br /blockquoteLiberalism is not about people; it is about loving ideas more than people. When liberal policies fail, good liberals do not go back to the drawing board. They see themselves challenged to produce a logical contortion that explains why they are not at fault.br /br /When it comes to dealing with those who take exception to liberal orthodoxy, many of today’s liberals are intolerant to an extreme. If liberalism began in the nineteenth century by asserting the value of freedom, today’s true liberals are really libertarians. Old style liberals believed in free markets, free trade, free speech, and the free and open exchange of ideas. Many of today’s liberals believe in none of it./blockquote

The Church of Progressivism

Tuesday, March 30th, 2010

Jeff Goldstein from Protein Wisdom responds to my articlea href=”http://proteinwisdom.com/?p=17581″ on liberals and lack of empathy:/abr /br /blockquoteOf course, to be fair, the “right” exhibits its share of intolerance — which, like that from the left, generally manifests in a kind of ostentatious public sanctimony. The difference is, for all the worry we consistently hear about the “religious right” threatening to turn the US into a theocracy, very rarely will we see any actual agitation for from mainstream conservatives to turn religious doctrine into state or federal law. Whereas the churches of environmentalism and government-mandated “charity” (which isn’t; charity tends not to be backed by fines and guns) have joined up, of late, into fortify the Church of Progressivism, which is very quickly becoming a de facto “official” church of the United States./blockquote
