Us vs. Liberals

MARK LEVIN KNOCKS IT OUT OF THE PARK: 12 Ways Progressives and Americans Differ on Public Policy

I paraphrased a few, knowing that some progressives’ heads might explode without a proper warmup:

  • We believe in the Constitution, they believe in centralized government.
  • We believe in individualism, they believe in conformity.
  • We believe in private property, they believe in collective ownership of material goods.
  • We believe in prosperity, they believe in redistributing wealth with them determining who gets ripped off and who gets the drips remaining after they’ve taken their cut.
  • We believe in separation of powers, they believe in a monolithic, all-powerful, administrative state.
  • We believe in eternal truths, they believe in ideologically meandering social engineering.
  • We believe in cultural stability, they believe in never-ending transformation of our society.
  • We believe in real science, they believe in social science (e.g., “environmental justice”).
  • We believe in the rights of man, they believe in the power of centralized government.
  • We believe in the moral order, they believe in situational ethics.
  • We believe in individual liberty, they believe in authoritarianism, with no limits ever defined.
  • We believe in education, they believe in indoctrination.
  • We believe in civil society, they believe in the federal leviathan.
