In Topic: As you have grown up have you become more liberal or more conservative?

Yesterday, 09:09 AM

Politically I really haven't changed much since my younger years. Fiscal conservative, socially moderate (still anti-abortion though). You can easily drop me in the laissez-faire bucket. 


The late 80s-mid 90s was my "age of enlightenment", growing up in a Southern Baptist community didn't open up a lot of doors to different cultures. So during this time I met and spent time with gays (one of them my best friend), went to the PowerCompany regularly, Muslims (the pork arguments were lively), Palestinians who hated Israel but didn't like the PLO either, some Lebanese (Christian and Muslim) who fought against each other before coming to the US and became roommates while attending UNCC, people recently from Africa who supported the Soviet Union because the "communists" at least followed through with their promises, unlike the CIA who were unreliable with their support of weapons and supplies. (I sense a Ho Chi Minh parallel here) One company I worked at, lunch time was called the UN round table because there were 14 countries represented with only myself and one other guy who had actually been born in the US.


Things I've learned.

People are people everywhere in the world. The problem starts when small groups of people decide on what the rest of the group should think whether it's right/left/Christian/Islamic/tribal/fill in the blank.


The Gov't and the media are the enemy. They all want to be our puppet masters. I thought the internet would neutralize this but it seems to only have increased their reach. They want division and the public at each other's throats. That's why I'm big on starving the beast. The less $$ the Gov't has, the less power they have.
