We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
I will grant you that liberals always have the best of intentions. They are always trying to make things better. In doing so, they victimize many. When I was growing up in rural Louisiana in the 1940s, both blacks and whites had strong, church-going families, low divorce rates, low rates of out-of-wedlock births and the crime rate was low. Abortion was virtually unknown, and was certainly not a means of birth control. All of that changed with LBJ’s Great Society programs. In an effort to “help”, liberals gave people (both black and white) incentives to have children out of wedlock. The result was several generations of welfare mothers, disintegration of the family, indigence, government dependency, soaring crime rates, etc. All of this was predictable, but it was only ended in 1996 when, after two Presidential vetoes, a Republican Congress finally shamed Bill Clinton into living up to his campaign promise to “end welfare as we know it”. Yes, the Great Society had noble intentions, but it harmed poor whites and poor blacks indiscriminately, almost destroying the black family. Liberals always have the best of intentions, but the results are often disastrous.
I'm not so sure liberals always have the best intentions.
People forget that before he was a Senator, Assistant Secretary Daniel Patrick Moynihan was run out of D.C. as a hopeless racist for arguing (with some statistical basis) that The Great Society would destroy the Black family. That racism slur is used pretty frequently against conservatives as an all-purpose argument, and they even turn it on their own from time to time.
Often, you find that a liberal opposed has damned bad intentions; or at worst a disposition that does not countenance opposition. Ironic then, that we call them liberals; many of the better examples of the breed are quite illiberal when you get right down to it.
I'm quite sure that "liberals" (it should always be in quotes in this context, as the usage is ironic) always have the best of intentions - it's just that they absolutely refuse to acknowledge the version of Murphy's Law that goes like this:
"The road to Hell is paved with good intentions."
Anyone with open eyes and mind can see this little proverb in action, such as in your example, but "liberals", with their conceit of being so much smarter than those evil conservatives, don't have open eyes and minds.
