One of the problems that conservatives have in attacking liberals is that liberalism doesn’t really exist. There’s no there there. It’s simply a masquerade for greed – a bunch of phony precepts no one really believes that are mouthed in order to get on unmolested with the business of material acquisition. Hollywood is a great example of this. So is Marin county, as shown in John Rosenberg’s PJM piece this morning on the county’s minority problem. A spinoff aspect of this is that when you attack phony pieties your adversary doesn’t really care. It’s only about cosmetics. Fix the cosmetics and you move on. They win by akido.
