Liberals believe that people are basically created good- shouldn't they then support a liberal, free market economic system that allows everybody to express that innate goodness in their own special way?
Likewise, one of the basic Conservative beliefs, especially in western Judaeo/Islamic/Christian culture is that man is created evil- with a tendency to sin rather than to do good- and that all evil is closely tied to man's nature towards sin. Shouldn't such a belief tend towards marxism and centralized economies and governments, which reduce the ability of the individual to do damage, thus "Conserving" traditional values?
In other words- commie left winger is as much of an oxymoron to me as capitalist right winger- NEITHER common association makes much sense to me.
As for me, I believe the truth is somwhere in between- we're created sinfull, but with the capacity to do great good. Centralized governments and money systems harm that capacity; but locally government can do more good than business can, thus I tend towards local atocracies.
