Most older libs are libs because they are imputing righteousness on themselves for “caring about the poor/earth/etc”.
When I told one of these how their policies had destroyed black families, from the look on her face you would have thought I’d slapped her.
With young libs, though, it’s different. It’s usually a matter of arrogance, as they aren’t thinking about judgement day as much as an older person would be.
I’ll agree they aren’t thinking about judgment day, but I’d say they are at least as concerned with holding the ‘nice’ political positions as their elders—and probably more so.
