Thread Name: BS: Conservative, Liberal, or Human Being?
Subject: RE: BS: Conservative, Liberal, or Human Being?
It leaves those of us who refuse to be labelled as either "liberal" or "conservative"...two buzzwords which long ago lost their relevance and usefullness, as far as I'm concerned. In other words, it leaves most of us.

The liberal-conservative divide is a phony concept used by the powerful to distract people, just as they use "sports" events and elections to distract people. It's a game. The rich win and everybody else loses.

As long as they can get the poor, worldwide, to demonize and kill each other over silly labels like liberal and conservative or Democrat and Republican or Christian and Muslim the game will go on and most of us will lose much of our freedom and brotherhood in the process.

It's been happening that way for thousands of years. Rush Limbaugh is an errand boy (witting or unwitting) for the mouth of a very hungry and conscienceless beast. He's about at the moral level of the people whose fanaticism fueled the Salem witch burnings.

Pretty good essay there, John Hardly!
