Please Don’t Call Them Liberals

Some keen insight, from the halls of academia no less. How Liberalism self-destructed:

Often eager to micromanage people’s lives, contemporary liberalism tends to obsess on the ephemeral while missing the substantial. Measures such as San Francisco’s recent ban on Happy Meals follow efforts to control the minutiae of daily life. This approach trivializes the serious things government should do to boost economic growth and opportunity.

The antithesis of liberty, and another reason the left should not be called “liberals.”
