Talk:Liberal Inability To Abstract

From Conservapedia

This is an interesting point, Andy. It seems like many of these examples boil down to the inability of liberals to understand cost of opportunity. That could also be related to many of the self-inflicted problems that come with a liberal lifestyle, such as addiction, promiscuity, and criminal behavior--those who fall into such destructive behavior patterns are unable to look past instant gratification to see the long-term costs of such behavior. Is it possible that this is one of the major benefits of faith? Christianity, after all, is about the best example possible of making sacrifices in the short-term in order to achieve long-term (in fact, infinite) happiness. In that sense, it's the ultimate abstraction. --Benp 14:25, 13 February 2010 (EST)

Your insight is superb, Ben. I hadn't thought of it this way, but you're exactly right. In fact, I'll add your point directly to the entry now.--Andy Schlafly 16:06, 13 February 2010 (EST)
