    1.Probably the greatest gulf in belief, the starting point for all political philosophy, is the nature man.

    Liberal tend to subscribe to Rousseau's view of the "nobel savage," a mankind that is better off without the corruption of government. And just the right changes in laws will produce a utopia on earth, all getting along, working toward the common good. Change. Progress. Force is often necessary to have all marching in the same directions. Amen.

    Conservatives view people as both good and bad, and for this reason believe on restraints on power, as in checks and balances, based on the principle of variety, while liberal perspectives result in a narrowing uniformity. Conservatives believe in choice of healthcare, education, religion, and various other areas: people are different and tend to remain so.

    Under conservative principles, there will be differences in class, material condition and other inequalities. Equality will be of opportunity, not necessarily of result. The only uniformity will be before the law. Society will not be perfect.

    2. The Daily Show, inadvertently, showed exaclty what happens when large groups get together: differences appear, and differences remain.

    Priceless. This from the vid:

    1. "Trying to build a new society all equal and civilized with each other....open, horizontal, leaderless..."

    2. "The more people that come, the more people segregated into their own little groups..."
    ...up there the college hipsters that live in Brooklyn and try to rule the park....down here the poor people's encampment...contentious."
    "On one side the elites...on the other, the downwardly mobile with their drums..."
    "...this is the ghetto...the othe side is the aristocratic side...."

    3. "...making decisions without the general consensus of everybody in the park..."

    4. "In any community...there are areas that are a little quieter and areas that are a little louder....inhabited by younger, more boisterous, energetic people.."

    5. The 'moocher class'...asked how many hours of work he had put in today, "I don't keep track of time while I'm here..."

    6. Would you share your iPad? "No, but I think we should all have access to goods and technology."
    "I'm more against private property...not personal property!"

    7. The elites meet, quietly, in the atrium of the Deutsche Bank Building, to decide what's best ....but out of sight of the masses.



    Is this the best??"I'm more against private property...not personal property!"


    At least as good as "All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others," from Orwell's "Animal Farm."

    It didn't seem inadvertent at all, from what I could tell. The Daily Show is pretty good about poking fun at hypocrisy wherever it finds it.

    ROTFLMBO!! I'm against private property not personal property!! Yea, right. Could someone on the left explain to me what the difference is between private and personal property??

    What an arrogant jerk, they're out there doing exactly what they accuse everyone else of doing. No doubt these are the paid hacks, the ones that make the rules and sends the people without laptops or iphones to the ghetto. Too funny!!

    these people they interviewed were not the only ones they inteviewed.

    You see this is how this type of comic journalism works.

    You intervwiew a bunch of people and ask them questions that make them go "What the fuck"?


    Then you splice together the funniest answers.


    You should see the Colbert interviews from his first couple of year on the show.


    The right thought he was a REAL right winger and would go on his show and say some really stupid things.

    The republican party had to ORDER it reps to STAY OFF the show.

    They even tapped him to do the Bush Press dinner.

    That day they learned who Colbert was.



    This is New York and you can bet most of the peopel they interviewed KNEW who samatha B is.

    Some likely played along with the bit.

    Some are just lame.


    It happens when you have a social movement, some of the people who join are not real bright.


    I can give some Tea party example for you?

    Funny...but telling.

    Exactly what the Left rails against....and showing that all of the 'ills' proceed right from thier little hypocritical hearts.

    Segregation...leadership by the 'enlightened'...disrespect for others....

    "House Democratic Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said she supports the growing nationwide Occupy Wall Street movement, which began on the streets of downtown New York City in mid-September.

    "I support the message to the establishment, whether it's Wall Street or the political establishment and the rest, that change has to happen," said Pelosi in an exclusive interview with ABC News "This Week" anchor Christiane Amanpour."

    So...which segment does she support?
