Quote of the day–James Burnham

Modern liberalism, for most liberals is not a consciously understood set of rational beliefs, but a bundle of unexamined prejudices and conjoined sentiments. The basic ideas and beliefs seem more satisfactory when they are not made fully explicit, when they merely lurk rather obscurely in the background, coloring the rhetoric and adding a certain emotive glow.

One thought on “Quote of the day–James Burnham

  1. Correctimondo: Liberals are very peculiar, really a different kind of hominid, unable to think in a rational, creative, wondering way. I consider them free-thought racists in that they combine hate of “the other” wherever the other is. The other is us. Liberals want our ass almost as bad as do the terrorists. But they are classic controllist cowards, impotent girly-man bullies who want control of the system’s laws and law enforcement to bring us to heel. This will not happen. We will remain free and able to think freely, that is rationally and necessarily in touch with reality. But we will have to fight them, because tolerance is exactly not what they are about. Liberals crave and are control iself.
