Default Re: Commenter Klatch: Light My Fire (Robert Wright & JimM47)

Something else I have been wondering: John McWhorter's main message seems to be one of personal responsibility. He makes the list as a liberal, but personal responsibility is something some conservatives like to accuse liberals of not believing in. Of course that's an exaggeration, but what makes John so clearly a liberal?

I'm not trying to nitpick Jim's data. I'm more thinking about how little these labels have to do with actual principles. Sometimes they are more tribal and tone-related.
