Juiced Meddlers

No one ever bothered to answer my question of a few weeks back about whether a proclivity for meddling leads one to embrace liberalism or vice versa. C'mon guys! It's not like I'm asking why there is something rather than nothing.

No matter. Someone else tackled the subject for us (sort of) and has written an entire book about it: Control Freaks: 7 Ways Liberals Plan to Ruin Your Life. According to the author, Terence Jeffrey, liberals are not just meddlers, they're control freaks, i.e, meddlers on steroids. Anyway, he's interviewed by Kathryn Jean Lopez over at National Review Online and it's worth a look.

My favorite exchange:
LOPEZ: When did you know you weren’t liberal?

JEFFREY: At the age of reason.
