What's in a Name?

Slartibartfast has an interesting post that The Oracle believes is mostly right. Those who call themselves "liberals" nowadays actually are in the business of conserving the status quo -- much of it based in New Deal or Great Society policies. Slartibartfast doesn't say it, but The Oracle might suggest that in some cases they are even reactionary. On the other hand, those deemed "conservatives often are promoting ideas for change.

This has actually been the case for sometime. One of the things that enticed The Oracle -- the son of died in the wool Democrats -- to embrace conservatism was the aggressive, against the grain polemics of the National Review crowd and the Reaganites back in the day that The Oracle was coming of age.
