Psychologist Analyzes Liberals James F. Davis, June 28, 2010
Recently I attended a lecture explaining the Liberal Mind by PhD. psychologist, Timothy C. Daughtry. He gave his explanation as to how such a minority (30%) in the United States has been able to impose its politics on the majority. When using the word Liberal below we are talking about the political Liberal.
Liberals dominate our institutions, i.e., the schools, universities, media, arts, cinema, nonprofits, government bureaucracies, etc. Anyone challenging their monolithic views is ruthlessly attacked to be silenced.
Daughtry stated there are two types of liberals. First are the hard liners.

There is indeed some hypocrisy among conservatives, as evidenced some on FR, and that we all practice in some ways. For my money conservatism is rationally assuming, and insisting on, personal responsibility to the most comprehensive levels, e.g. behavior, respect for others, health care, retirement, blah, blah.
In that light Leftism is clearly exposed.
The drug thing is a nice issue for discussing such.
