(Community Matters) This is probably his worse essay this year – David Brooks self-congratulating the imaginary, all knowing and always right “moderate”
<<but immoderate people often know what their solutions are before they define the problems>>
One should first read or discern his assumptions, and then decide if you agree with them.
Seriously? Consider that a valid assumption – that moderates are measurably more rational and more likely to first define the problem
<<For a certain sort of conservative, tax cuts and smaller government are always the answer, no matter what the situation. For a certain sort of liberal, tax increases for the rich and more government programs are always the answer>>
Name me one of those liberals
This entire essay is insulting. Liberals, progressives and even many conservatives see the necessity for spending cuts and raising revenues.
