Seven Huge Flaws in the Way Liberals Think

Written By : John Hawkins

1) Liberals believe they can change human nature. Sure, human beings 
can be shaped and molded to a certain extent. Any parent who has 
spanked a child can tell you that. However, most people care more 
about what they're having for lunch today than an earthquake that 
kills ten thousand people on the other side of the world. We're just 
built that way and no amount of sensitivity training, preschool 
classes, or Michael Moore documentaries is going to "fix" it.

2) Liberals believe we can talk everything out with our enemies. One 
of the weirder quirks of liberalism is their belief that many of our 
bitterest enemies have rational reasons for disliking us and that can 
easily be talked away if they realize we're good people. Hence, the 
common liberal refrain of, "Why do they hate us?" The reason this is 
a particularly odd belief is that liberals don't even believe this 
about conservatives in the United States. The average liberal thinks 
that if we're nice enough, we can reach an understanding with Hugo 
Chavez or Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, but Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck can't 
be reasoned with.

3) Liberals don't have enough respect for our culture and traditions: 
To liberals, our cultural, economic, and political norms were formed 
by backwards troglodytes making arbitrary decisions based on 
superstition and racism. Unfortunately for them, as a general rule, 
that's not so and proceeding as if it is, will often lead to exactly 
the same difficulties that our ancestors already dealt with in times 
past. No matter how smart we are, as Thomas Sowell would say, our 
wisdom is often no match for the 
experience of millions who faced similar human vicissitudes before." 
Truly wise people are aware that there is a great deal that they do not know.

4) Liberalism is a fundamentally immoral political philosophy. 
Ironically, given all their talk about "shades of gray," liberals 
have a very Manichean view of the world. They consider their fellow 
travelers to be on the side of the angels, while the people who 
disagree with them are treated as evil. This leads to an "anything 
goes" mentality when dealing with their foes: ignoring the law via a 
"living constitution," politically based prosecutions, shouting down 
opposing speakers, and treating lying about their agenda or opponents 
to be moral. On the other hand, liberals will support other libs, no 
matter how corrupt, sleazy, or vile they are as long as they're 
politically useful to the left. See Ted Kennedy, Barney Frank, John 
Murtha, and Robert Byrd for examples of that. In other words, as 
Thatcher has said of the Left, "For them, the end always seems to 
justify the means."

5) Liberals believe merely being liberal makes them good people. 
Liberals who're obsessed with money think they're compassionate 
because they give away other people's tax dollars. They believe they 
care more about the earth than other people, even as they fly around 
in private jets, because they babble on about global warming. They 
can be dumb as a rock, but believe they're smarter than most other 
people because they're liberals. In other words, in the minds of most 
liberals, liberalism is an all-purpose substitute for actual virtue 
instead of just another political philosophy.

6) Liberals have too much faith in government. Even most liberals 
would admit that government regularly fails the people. If you don't 
believe that, just ask them about the Bush Administration and they'll 
give you an earful. However, liberals tend to believe that with the 
right person in charge, government won't be so slow, stupid, 
inefficient, and badly run. Human history proves that they're wrong 
about that.

7) Liberals have minimal interest in whether the programs they 
support work or not. To most liberals, whether a government program 
betters people's lives is completely irrelevant to whether they'll 
support it. A program that doesn't work and costs billions, but 
sounds compassionate and helps Democrats politically is a huge 
success in the eyes of the Left. Once you understand that liberals 
think this way, their baffling support for programs that make no 
"common sense" is much easier to understand.
