Liberals who have amounted to something in life through advanced study, hard work, deferral of gratification, self-control, accepting responsibility for their actions and the rest of the old-fashioned virtues are often strangely hesitant to preach these conservative virtues to those most in need of them.
That’s because people who preach anything, including any sort of virtues, to others are condescending, stupid, annoying fools. (Unless they are preachers by profession, of course.)
And what has worked for them they do not think will work for others.
That’s because they have the intelligence to realize that people are different and different things work for these different people. “I’m so wonderful, let’s all be me” is a very infantile position.
Their attitude is curiously condescending. If we conservatives used ‘racist’ as loosely and irresponsibly as they do, we might even tag their attitude ‘racist.’
If everybody who is not exactly like you belongs to a different race, then sure enough. According to this logic, there are 7 billion races in this world.
Signed: a Liberal who has amounted to a lot of things.
