Warner Todd Huston, a Chicago Free-lance writer, once wrote: “If a conservative is a vegetarian, he won’t eat meat. If a liberal is, he wants to ban meat products for everyone.” Unspoken is that liberals believe they have sole moral authority and the right to decree that there is only one way of thinking or doing things: Their way. And their way is to make relentless inroads into what is and is not acceptable for everyone else, regardless of dissenting opinion, regardless of evidence, regardless of the irrationality inherent in their conclusions.
Facts are meaningless; they say so, they want it that way. Things should be what they wish and that’s enough to morph liberal desire into truth. Freedom of speech be damned. This point of view is one that has become increasingly prevalent in today’s society. Another name for it is “fascism.” It is rare that a dissenting voice or hand has been lifted against it.
