Another Tilt on the Fulcrum

A very nice summation (originally from an op-ed in the San Francisco Chronicle, of all places) of all that's gone wrong with the American left.

This article explains quite nicely why "liberal" doesn't mean what it used to. It also hints at the continuing disintegration of what was once a potent and valuable school of thought. Perhaps it's time for a "neoliberal" movement to emerge in response to the "neoconservatives".

First saw this on Wordforge, along with a sadly predictable set of responses from the liberal members of our board. Here's the thread in question.

It really is true that "denial" isn't just a river in Egypt. The modern American Left is a movement in dire need of a period of self-examination.
