The Great Circle of Blog

Mike the Mad Biologist has a great post today in which he draws a distinction between modern liberals and modern conservatives based not on their party affiliation, but based on whether they fight for political power and domination (conservative) or justice and morality (liberal). I think it's an interesting way to parse many of the current debates, but fails in as much as it can't explain why moderates like Lincoln Chafee or Olympia Snowe continue to support their radical counterparts in Congress. Anyway, it's a good read.
