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.
The always-interesting Kling takes a look at the Jewish Liberal-Left, and maps out a cultural-historical narrative which explains it. Here's his summary:
His thesis is that a historical-cultural template is applied to circumstances, but that the template doesn't always fit reality. Thinking "inside the box", so to speak. At TCS, read the entire interesting piece.
With all due respect, I cannot understand why any Jew would be a liberal when the liberals support Israel's enemies, seek to prevent free speech here at home, practice political correctness which view Jews as monsters victimizing Balcks in America and Muslims overseas.
I see liberal Jews as being people without any sense of what's best for them.
