The Upside-Down World of Liberalism

A few examples:
  • Mutually beneficial economic exchange is a zero-sum game, thus the legalization of labor unions, opposition to free trade, and so on.
  • Punishment is excessive, except when it comes to white-collar crime.
  • The absence of war is the "peace" of appeasement and surrender.
  • The enemies of Western values and capitalism have rights.
  • The concept of man-made global warming must be defended because...well, because it is a stick with which to beat the very capitalism that enables many rich liberals to bankroll anti-Western, anti-capitalist movements.
The failure of liberalism to come to grips with reality convinces me that most liberals are either dumb or "victims" of arrested emotional development.
