"That about sums it up,
really: Liberals feel. Liberals care. They are pack animals whose identity
is tied up in group dynamics. Conservatives and Libertarians think --
and, setting aside the theocracy crowd, their identity is centered on
feel that their favored groups, have enforceable rights to the property
and services of productive individuals. Conservatives (and Libertarians,
myself among them I might add) think that individuals have the right
to protect their lives and their property from the plunder of the masses."
