George Will Contrasts Liberalism and Conservatism

“Conservatives favor freedom and are willing to accept inequalities of outcome in a free market; liberals tend to favor equality of outcome and are willing to sacrifice and circumscribe freedom in order to get it.”

“What conservatives say is…‘we will protect you against the liberal faith that they can make something straight from the crooked timber of humanity.’”

[June 3rd, 2008, The Colbert Report]
