The liberal political mindset is not based on learning, education or intelligence. It is an instinctive response to leadership. Social evolution and physical evolution work side by side but they don’t evolve at the same pace. When the concept of freedom for the common person emerged prior to the American Revolution, life and opportunities started to change. People were able to entertain the concept of freedom but most everyone continues to respond instinctively to authority. Worshiping leaders and government is biologically normal. The instinctive mind treats government as a parent and expects to share in what the group produces, just like a child expects benefits from mother and father.
In today’s world, there are few conservatives in politics either as voters or elected representatives. The conservative movement is rhetorical and virtue seeking is the primary activity.
Under extreme circumstances, human beings will choose to override their instinctive behavior. This is what happened in the late 18th century with the American and French revolutions. Something like that may be occurring currently but it is too early to tell.
For certain, the goals and aspirations of the liberal mindset are not achievable through government. Instinctively, citizens are highly prone to assume a subservient role to government and leaders. The instinctive posturing towards government, while being the best option when mankind was enslaved, destroys democracy.
People can only control some of what they think and do. Just know that the things liberals want from government, given natural law are not doable. There is no better chance of making progress with the liberal agenda than there is of getting a dog to adapt to a steady diet of grapes and watermelon.
