Five Ft. Three

“A society that puts equality before freedom will get neither. A society that puts freedom before equality will get a high degree of both.” ― Milton Friedman

An interesting read on liberals vs. conservatives

on October 14, 2005

Maybe this seems to weigh in the liberal side’s favor or maybe its because I am a conservative looking at it from that perspective, but I thought it was pretty accurate and interesting. There is one part about the liberal side thinking basically that tolerance trumps other values, such as family values, which I think is the heart of the “culture war”. The Pope is mentioned, and I believe this article was written prior to Pope John Paul II’s death.
