Love this quote:
“The modern conservative is engaged in one of man’s oldest exercises in moral philosophy; that is, the search for a superior moral justification for selfishness.”
John Kenneth Galbraith
Found it here.
Only now, since it’s no longer cool to be a conservative (thank you George Bush), everyone is all Libertarian. But, most people have no idea what that really means just like they don’t know the meaning of Liberal or Conservative.
