Why liberalism is doomed to fail. The majority of people want to be happy.
But many people don't know how to be happy. They think there's some special way or some special something they must have. They don't know what Abe Lincoln knew when he said --
As long as there are people who look outside themselves for happiness, liberalism will have an audience. Convinced that special privileges and special hand-outs will bring them happiness, many accept the liberal lie that they are victims deserving of "reparations." But then they are stuck with the victim role, a role that excludes the happiness they wanted in the first place. So they are understandably angry and liberalism re-directs that anger toward conservatives with the further lie that these people are still unhappy because they don't have enough hand-outs, set-asides, special privileges, respect, self-esteem, etc. Since it's never enough, liberalism continues to thrive.
