Well, its an interesting ops. If you feel that higher education = liberal education, then yes, you can come to that conclusion.
Of course, you give no reasoning behind why the crazy liberal ideas are somehow inferior. You have the legalization of mary as some sort of liberal
mindset pushing into society as part of the brainwashing as an example.
I would think a freedom loving conservative would be equally as outraged at the government telling you what you can or cannot consume. Typically, for
the "moral" conservative, such things need to remain illegal, but whiskey is great (statistically, far more crime, damage, and health issues comes
from consumption of alcohol than the other thing cons are typically against). Why? Because...yep, you guessed it. brainwashing by a -conservative-
media to stick up for the cotton and alcohol industry's agenda.
I can, point for point, explain to you the educated and factual understandings of most social liberal ideology. I can source and back up anything I
state. I rarely need to resort to feelings and some rather poor interpretation of amendments to the constitution. Actually, I can clearly show the
direct lines of most social liberal ideologies that support the philosophy.
The major difference is, a strong libertarian type conservative will look at the constitution and see that is the absolute pinnicle of society...that
it is perfect, and nothing more should ever be added..basically our civilization peaked hundreds of years ago and all we can hope to achieve is a
holding pattern for eternity.
A liberal mindset will see the constitution as a fantastic piece of legislation, and we can also put things on top of this as our collective wisdom
and prosperity grows...in order to form a more perfect union as it were.
My personal home life is actually more conservative than the typical conservative. I dictate where my principles, morals, and patriotism lays in my
own domain. I see any society that tries to regulate the above as a sign of weakness towards the particular subject.
Are liberals really more intelligent than conservatives? social liberals, you betcha..brainwashed intellects? well, we are all programmed by society
in some way..those whom are free of programming of ideas and ideals are non-existant. your parents, school, preachers, politicians, corporations, etc
are in a constant state of programming and counter programming one another.
Here is something to consider. Those whom had a high intellect to begin with went on to advanced education because they understood the subject far
better than the ones whom simply couldn't understand it and so dropped out. No university 'brainwashing' needed.
My university experience consisted of lots of computers, programming (code), and other such things. Most of my liberal viewpoints developed after
college. during my late teens and very early 20s, I was independent and uncaring overall.it was traveling the world, contemplating each discussion
that popped up, that formed my worldview. I used to consider myself independent, but the more I tried to investigate in on social conservative ideas,
the more I thought the concepts were proposterous and fully out of line with the concepts of what the united states was founded on.
ok, counter rant to counter your rant. and as mentioned before, it is a well thought out rant you put forward..skewed of course,
but at least its more eloquent then the typical "since when has smarts meaned anythin, I can make a potato gun! Take that libralz!"
But your final paragraph on the second post is pure raw sewage. If you are going to do the waltz, dont end it with a burp.
