The Real Division Between People

The real division and conflict are not between Liberals and Conservatives as we always hear in the media. It is between those who want a strong, central government that controls the life of its citizens on the one side and those who want a transparent, slim government and strong, self-reliant citizens on the other side.

The real division is not between conservatives and revolutionaries but between authoritarians and libertarians.

George Orwell

Those two views of life are not compatible and will always conflict. You can find out what you are with The Political Compass test.

In a News Conference in 1986 Ronald Reagan said probably the most famous quote for every Libertarian:

The nine most terrifying words in the English language are: I’m from the Government, and I’m here to help.

Ronald Reagan, The President’s News Conference, August 12, 1986
