More Liberal Hubris

Filed in Politics

Conservative Dialysis dissects typical liberal hubris as expressed in a comment to an earlier post:

So let's review: According to the commenter, conservatives are stupid because all of their knowledge and experience failed to produce a political belief system which leans left, and everyone knows that in order to be considered smart your political beliefs must lean left. I don't think that this is much of an argument.

Quite to the contrary, this dogmatic liberal viewpoint was proven to be a resounding failure in the half-century experiment in socialism that was the Soviet Union. Whereas the 230 year experiment in democracy, free-market capitalism, and rugged individualism that is the United States remains the greatest nation in the history of mankind.

This arrogance exemplifies one of the primary reasons I chose to leave academia after earning "just" a Bachelor's degree: I wanted nothing to do with the Ivory Tower that produces just this kind of attitude.
