If its Utopia you want, you will never attain it. Perfection is not to be found in the things of this world and mortal life has its share of flaws and shortcomings. The conservative accepts the world is not perfect and tries to better it through good works. The liberal sees the world as in need of perfection and looks to government to achieve it. There's a difference between the practicable and the nearly impossible. It seems to me it is the latter where liberals fall far short in their bid to see the world elevated to a higher state of being.

I stopped at my doctors office today without having an appointment.
I waited for an hour to get in to see him. While waiting I was exposed to National Public Radio piped into his waiting room.
When he ask "how are you?" , I told him that I was fine when I walked into his waiting room, but after one hour of NPR torture "I was deeply depressed".
He smiled and said he would make a note on my chart to have Rush on the waiting room radio for my next visit.
I told him that even the most boring classical music would be better than the NPR b. c.
Just doing my bit to change the world for the better.
