Can liberals be saved?
Karl D.’s comment about the liberal psychology complements Takuan Seiyo’s article in the previous entry. Seiyo says liberals can’t be saved, and that we must step out of the way, John Galt-like, and allow them to destroy themselves. Karl suggests that liberals want to be saved (from liberalism), but are inhibited by their need to be liked (by their fellow liberals).
Karl D. writes:
I wanted to forward an interesting experience I had recently. A friend visited me that I hadn’t seen in some time. He is your run of the mill Liberal who tends to lean to the extreme on some issues of Liberal thought. He sympathizes with all the correct leftist causes (personally and publicly) and has a particular passion for blacks and “racism”. Knowing that I am a Conservative we tried to steer clear of political issues which is quite difficult.
