The Stages of Liberal Reform

The Stages of Liberal Reform

A new and controversial idea or policy is being debated:

No-Fault Divorce


Homosexual Marriage


Step 1

“Everyone should support this….what can it hurt!”

Then we find out it does hurt and in fact causes serious problems, the Liberal replies:

Step 2

“How were we to know!”

First the denial of the problem, then we are left with finding an answer, but the Liberal has that covered as well:

Step 3

“We didn’t go far enough in our reform! What we need now is more not less”

Step 4

Repeat Steps 1, 2 & 3 until the money, public support and/or the effects are so bad that the Liberal is stopped.

  1. Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. - Albert Einstein

  2. Alex

    The Liberal believes they are being consistent, sticking to something. Instead of being flightly as we often accuse them of being. But it shows their inability to analyse, it also shows we should have a definition of what constitutes success and what constitutes failure.

    Regarding your quote I wonder whether Mr. Einstein did in fact say that as doing the same thing over and over to see if there are different results is called the scientific method, something I would have thought he was quite familiar with!
