Origin of liberals and conservatives
Some new thoughts here.....
The division of the human family into its two distinct political branches
occurred some 10,000 years ago, when humans coexisted as members of small
bands of nomadic hunter/gatherers.
The pivotal event of societal evolution was the invention of beer. This
epochal event was both the foundation of modern civilization and
theoccasion of the bifurcation of humanity into its two distinct
subgroups: Liberals and Conservatives.
Once beer was discovered, it required grain, and that was the beginning
of agriculture. Neither the glass bottle nor aluminum can were invented
yet, so it was necessary to stick close to the brewery. That's how
villages were formed.
Some men spent their days killing animals to barbecue at night while they
were drinking beer. This was the beginning of the conservative movement.
Other men who were weaker and less skilled at hunting, learned to live
off the conservatives by showing up for the nightly barbecues and doing
the sewing, fetching and hair dressing. This was the beginning of the
liberal movement. An interesting evolutionary side note: some of these
earlyliberal men eventually evolved into women.
Liberal achievements include the domestication of cats, the trade union,
the invention of group therapy and group hugs, and the concept of
democratic voting to decide how to divide the meat and beer that the
Over the years, conservatives came to be symbolized by the largest, most
powerful land animal on earth. Liberals are symbolized by the jackass.
Modern liberals like imported beer (with lime added), but most prefer
white wine or imported bottled water. They eat raw fish but like their
beef well done. Sushi, tofu, and French food are standard liberal fare.
Another interesting evolutionary side note: most of their women have
higher testosterone levels than their men.
Most social workers, personal injury attorneys, journalists, dreamers in
Hollywood and group therapists are liberals. Liberals invented the
designated hitter rule because it wasn't "fair" to make the pitcher also
Conservatives drink domestic beer, They eat red meat, and still provide
for their women. Conservatives are big-game hunters, rodeo cowboys,
lumber jacks, construction workers, medical doctors, police officers,
corporate executives, soldiers, athletes, and generally anyone who works
productively outside government. Conservatives who own companies hire
other conservatives who want to work for a living.
Liberals produce little or nothing. They like to "govern" the producers
and decide what to do with the production. Liberals believe Europeans are
more enlightened than Americans. That is why most of the liberals
remained in Europe when conservatives were coming to America. They crept
in after the wild west was tame and created a business of trying to get
MORE for nothing.
Here ends the lesson in world history.
A thousand hills, but no birds in flight, ten thousand paths, with no people's tracks. A lonely boat, a straw-hatted old man, fishing alone in the cold river snow.
