You may have noticed that Pudge has an Ask Pudge page. His last podcast, as of this writing, makes it clear why it's not worth listening to. He claims that liberals are driven by "wishful thinking" and and "the notion that we can make life on Earth perfect" and "[maybe] we can all have a Star Trek like existence".
Yup. That's his view on liberals. Conservatives, of course, are the sober, realistic individuals who, unlike liberals, actually think about things.
Silly me. I stupidly thought that disparate value systems might lead people to reach different conclusions about the relative merits of varying political and economic systems. Not so! Clearly no liberal has thought about the merit of their positions. It's all wishful thinking. I'm so grateful that Pudge has shown me the light.
(Mind you, if that's not his view on liberals, he shouldn't have said it. But you can listen to the podcast yourself and see if I'm misrepresenting him.)
