I’m just now wondering if one big difference between the left and right is that the left is “situational” about a lot more than the right. In other words the right bases their analysis on stand-alone principles and the left bases theirs on principles that change from situation to situation. It’s like situational ethics but involves more than just ethics.

Conservativism is the politics of reality, based on what is real, what is known, and what history tells us. Liberalism is the politics of denial, based on whatever it takes for the adherent to deny his own hostility and see himself as a virtuous person.

Rush has pointed out repeatedly that for the liberal, intentions are what count, not results. He is right. All manner of atrocity have been perpetrated by leftwingers with "good intentions," as a result.
