Liberalism and zealotry


The barbarians have entered the gates and now seek to expel us. There is no reasoning, compromise, or debate. It was never about what was right, true, or good. It was always about power. Having a clearer idea of liberal motives may not help us regain our country, but it can liberate us from the futility of arguing with someone who has so little regard for truth.

The mistake we made was in opening public discourse to all in thinking that civility and reason would win the day. It seems that truth is not universally appreciated or desired. Jesus once said, "light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil". This may be a way to best understand the motives of liberals.
