    It has been fascinating to watch her slow drift to the “Right” on a number of issues. Probably because it parallels my own development, to some extent.

      I’d bang her back in the day.

      So where have you drifted to the right, and/or left?

        Generally speaking my political opinions are all over the spectrum. That makes it harder to pin down how my personal views have developed than I imagined it would be when I first considered your question a few hours ago.

        But they have definitely drifted to the “Right”.

        To put it bluntly, I suppose I have seen so many “new” ideas and policies crash, burn, and actually make things worse that I’m far more reluctant to entertain “progressive” change than I once was.

        Whether or not those ideas and policies failed because they were poorly conceived and implemented or because some vested interest wanted them to fail seems less important than the idea that ill considered change may cause considerable damage.

        While I recognize that change is not just inevitable, it is essential, I’m increasingly of the opinion that it should be approached with a degree of reticence.

        Maybe I’m just getting old.

          Petite bourgeoisie say that stuff all the time. Maybe you were never on the left, always secretly identified with the mission of the bosses and banks. If you’re asking for forgiveness you will have to make a much more passionate if not detailed confession. “Getting old” is not an acceptable excuse, but I think you know that. Commit to something, the internet is ready to bear witness.

            Never said I was ever on the Left, I said I’d drifted to the Right.

            I’m not a banker but for some people, I am the Boss.

            Not asking for forgiveness either and even if I required such, it wouldn’t be within the power of anyone here to give.

            I’ve already stated what I am committed to, here on this very site. If you’re that interested, start reading…

          • Thurlow Weed

            Save me the trouble of reading, and just come out with it. What are you committed to?

            Wait, never mind.

  • Thurlow Weed

    Drift to the right. Just do the math: Leftists are underpaid and perpetually poor. Libertarians get paid well, and invited to cocktail parties.

  • Dingbert

    Read Camille Paglia if you’d prefer feminists who inhabit the real world and who are actually libertarian.
