    perhaps this is why I have always considered myself to be a liberal. of course the definition of liberal has changed considerably since this was published in 1951

    What you and Bert as defining as LIBERAL, I define as HONEST.

    I think you make a mistake attempting to use the language that the MASTERS want you to use.

    Liberalism v Conservatism has nothing whatever to do with today's politics.

    There are no liberals in power nor conservatives, either.

    There are merely two opposing teams of Insiders squabbling over the corpse of America's body politic
