To be clear, I'm not claiming any of these liberal lessons have made me a better man. Candidly, they make you miserable, because you can never escape the fight. But, we didn't pick this fight, they did. You can engage, and ferociously fight back, or you can watch your country get flushed down the toilet.
I read once that there are two types of people who see the world differently: the super-rich, and the super-political. This is spot on. If we're ever to beat back the scourge of liberalism, we'll have to adapt these lessons and learn to be super-political too.
