What a fantastic commentary here. Excellent. More of that, thanks.
One point which I have made before is that conservative vs liberal politics is inherently incoherent:
Right-wing = tiny government please, and stay out of our lives, apart from when it concerns sexuality and morality and family, in which case let’s regulate the shit out of it so we can get teh gayz and them other morally abhorrent people away from us
Left-wing = controlling government legislating everything, apart from what goes on at home, and morally – basically, anything goes.
What an odd paradox.
