"ALL BECAME SO JEALOUS OF THEIR OWN RIGHTS THAT THEY DID THEIR UTMOST TO LIMIT AND DESTROY THE RIGHTS OF OTHERS, AND MADE THAT THE FOCUS OF THEIR LIVES. SLAVERY FOLLOWED, EVEN VOLUNTARY SLAVERY; THE WEAK EAGERLY SUBMITTED TO THE STRONG, IN ORDER TO SUBDUE THOSE EVEN WEAKER THAN THEM. THEN THERE WERE SAINTS WHO CAME TO THESE PEOPLE, WEEPING, AND SPOKE TO THEM OF THEIR PRIDE, OF THEIR LOSS OF JOY AND BALANCE, OF THEIR LOSS OF SHAME. THEY WERE LAUGHED AT OR PELTED WITH STONES." FYODOR DOSTOEVSKY
But a coin has two sides ... the liberals can't exist without the conservatives. Which is worse, those who promote their own rights at the expense of others or those who promote the rights of others, at the expense of their own rights? Both are acting to gain political power for themselves.
