    Freedom is a bit like sex, when your getting it you take it for granted, when you're not you want it bad, other people get mad at you for having it and others want to take it away from you so only they have it.

    wtf is the point of posting partisan tripe like that?

    I would argue that the terms "liberal" and "conservative" are so vague and misused as to render your entire post self-contradictory.

    Furthermore, in each case the first possibility applies to me and the second does not. However, I am not and do not consider myself a "conservative". I consider myself a liberal of the classical variety.

    The problem is, you define "liberal" as someone to whom the second possibility in each case applies. But none of those things apply to me, a self-declared liberal.

    So where does that leave your meaningless partisan BS now? Are you going to argue to my face that, since I'm a liberal, I want all TV channels shut down, because I don't like and don't watch any of them?

    So, to summarize, this thread is f*ing stupid.

    Surely you're aware of the difference between classical liberalism and the modern American variety. A classical liberal is MUCH closer to a current American conservative than to a liberal.

    Of course I'm aware; that was the whole point. As soon as you break things down into false paradigms you begin talking nonsense.
