Liberals and Conservatives

Seeing how this is still the tail end of the week in which we celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King day, it's appropriate to highlight this succinct post.

It points out one critical difference, perhaps the critical difference, between liberals and conservatives.

Via Digby, a post by David Atkins (16 Jan 2012)

MLK:  "Life's most persistent and urgent question is: 'What are you doing for others?'"

Ayn Rand:  "If any civilization is to survive, it is the morality of altruism that men have to reject."

Atkins then comments:

Conservatives get to claim one or the other. They can't have both.  And if they pick door #2, they can't have this guy, either.

I can't add anything to that.  When somebody else nails it, you quote and offer thanks.
