Throwing a Hollywood

The playbook in one clip: Be the aggressor. Grandstand for attention. Create disharmony. Stand up for your 'value set'. Should consequences arise, immediately assume the position of victim. Appeal for sympathy. Repeat. This is commonly known as "Throwing a Hollywood." Also known as The Mango Mussolini Flimflam.

Liberalism

Liberalism is a political and moral philosophy based on liberty and equality. Liberalism became a distinct movement in the Age of Enlightenment when it became popular among Western philosophers and economists. Our founding fathers were all liberals. The definition of Conservatism? "Commitment to traditional values and ideas with opposition to change or innovation."

Liberals got women the right to vote. Liberals got African-Americans the right to vote. Liberals created social security and lifted millions of elderly people out of poverty. Liberals ended segregation. Liberals passed the Civil Rights Act. Liberals created Medicare. Liberals passed the clean air act and the clean water act. What did conservatives do? They opposed every one of these programs.

I wear the label 'Liberal' as a badge of honour.
