Reader Stanton Brown passed along

Reader Stanton Brown passed along this piece by Dennis Prager about differences in personality that help explain political differences. Prager’s analysis has much to recommend it. However, I question the extent to which today’s leading liberals, as opposed to those of 40 years ago (or those who are likely to call Prager’s show), actually believe that “people are basically good.” It might be more accurate to say that today’s liberals believe that people lack free will and that they can be molded into tolerable agents by the state. In this respect, and others, today’s liberals resemble the hard left of yesteryear, with whom the liberals of yesteryear often clashed.
