The Liberal Field Guide has two primary purposes. (1) To elaborate a consistent set of principles and policy-positions for fellow liberals; and (2) to point out conservatism’s many flaws. We aim to make liberals smarter, sharper and better-informed; and conservatives extinct.
We all know the feeling of getting stuck beside a conservative socially – at a meeting, a gathering, a party, etc. The Liberal Field Guide will give you all you need to maneuver the miscreant to the floor, and pin him to the mat in a few deft moves.
Being drawn to liberalism is by itself a powerful indication of intelligence and sensitivity – the LFG seeks to hone the sensibilities of like-minded individuals, to make them more powerful in debate, and more refined in their everyday encounters – so they can be better citizens, aiding in the dissemination and acceptance of superior public policies.
