On Moral Vanity

"I was born and educated into the class
that produces “gentry liberals”, but I’ve come to loathe them. They're so very, very convinced of their moral superiority, they are. The pious anti-torture crusaders, the "economic-justice"€ cod-Marxists, the no-growth environmentalists, the gun banners, and all their kin in the tribe of wealthy white left-liberals. Armored by their certitudes and their sheepskins and their class privileges, they sail serenely above the deadly consequences of their meddling. Not for them any need to worry about second-order effects or process costs or who actually pays the cost for their delusions, oh, no. They are the anointed, and lofty intentions are their sovereign excuse however much damage they do." -- Armed and Dangerous » Blog Archive » Who bears the costs of moral vanity?
