Churchill was pretty much right when he said any man under 30 who is not a liberal has no heart, any man over 40 who is not a conservative has no brain.
The baby boomers are getting into their 40s. A lot of them are starting to realize that they have brains.
Some, of course, never will. But a lot are.
BTW, I should clarify that I am using the term liberal in its contemporary sense, for people like Hillary Clinton and Teddy Remember Mary Jo Kopechne Kennedy.
Classic liberalism--the liberalism of Locke, Jefferson, up to Humphrey but ending pretty much there -- is today viewed pretty much as either libertarianism or conservatism, depending on which aspects of you want to emphasis. Which is the camp I'm probably closest to.
It's taken me a while to get here -- after all, when I was in college I was the bleedingest of the bleeding heart liberals. Not trust anybody over 30?? Heck, I didn't trust anybody over 25!
Ah well. Isn't being human a blast!!
