Not all conservatives. There are thoughtful conservatives.

Just like there are people such as Stu and Pat on the left.



Yeah, I know.

However as so often demonstrated on LNF, it’s very difficult to find that consistency which indicates an actual moral position.

I don’t think conservatism has such a thing; it’s inherently about unfairness and injustice, so those (like say Patrick or Archie or Seawolf) who are likely, irl, decent honourable men express shocking views dictated by their politics.


I’ve many Tory friends, I drank in a Tory club intermittently for years.
  

Under Capitalism, Man exploits Man.

Under Communism, it's the exact opposite.

You're not fighting against evil, or Satan. You're having a disagreement with people about what the good life looks like and how to achieve it. Sensible people can disagree about that without anyone being evil.

Ummm, not quite sure I agree.

First of all, everyone is inherently evil. We are of a sinful nature. That's just humankind.

So I'm not suggesting that only liberals are evil.

But I will say that, from a Christian conservative perspective, liberals stand for many evil things: abortion, homosexuality, transgenderism, etc. Not only do they condone these things, they celebrate them.

"Disagreement", my ass. House Majority Whip Steve Scalise of Louisiana was shot in 2017 by someone with advanced TDS - was that "disagreement"?  Hordes of libfascists pound on the doors of the supreme court because they didn't get another leftwing judge.  The lib media is a 24/7 anti-Trump defamation machine.  There's now no question that libs in the Deep State worked to undermine the Trump administration.  Remember the dumb slut who got a photo of her holding a severed Trump head, a la ISIS?  The central park play of Trump getting assassinated as Julius Ceasar?  The black-clothed, masked lib fascists shutting down conservative speakers repeatedly on university campuses? "Disagreement"???

But isn't that true of all illiberal ideologies? It seems to me it is only the liberals (classical) who have a principled moral position. Both the left and the right lack consistency.

I guess it depends on how you define evil. I'm not sure those rise to that standard even in Biblical Christianity.

For that seems to equate sin with being evil. But we know that humans are weak. Sin is not a sin of pure undiluted malevolence. It is a sin of weakness.

When I think of evil, I think of something with no redeeming qualities- no chance for good.

When a Liberal tries to talk to me I just say "not today Satan" and walk away.
