The real motive behind the Liberal

Reader comment on item: Why the Left Loves Osama [and Saddam]

Submitted by Les Jordan (United States), Mar 21, 2003 at 15:35

I enjoyed your on-target comments, as usual. However, I wish you would ask: Why do we have this America-hating liberal establishment bent upon giving us a political system that is so bankrupt? Then, I'd like to see you explore what I believe is, at root, the answer. The answer is, I'm convinced, envy.
I haven't met a liberal yet who didn't have a deep-seated sense of inferiorty that causes him or her to tremble in envious terror at the sight of individuals who have the ability to compete in a free society running on laizes-faire capitalist principles (Never mind the evidence that socialist/communist regimes are bankrupt). Our liberal friends will stop at nothing to avoid the fact that capitialism is the superior economic system, because to admit this is to admit they fear competing in a fair, free society: One which allows us to rise or fall on our OWN merits.
