Liberalism is mostly a set of attitudes...

...mixed with very malleable principles.

So writes Thomas Sowell:
Liberals may think of themselves as people who believe in certain principles but, if you observe their actual behavior, you are likely to discover that most liberals have a certain set of attitudes, rather than principles.

Liberals may denounce "greed," for example, but in practice it all depends on whose greed. Nothing the government does is ever likely to be called "greed" by liberals.
(Via Bookworm)

I just love that observation about Liberals and greed. It's true of any attribute they despise. The whole article is right on the money.
