Amusing Law Professors

One of the more explicit recent examples, courtesy of the Faculty Lounge, of the tendency some progressives have to see themselves as missionaries and conservatives as unwashed masses who would be progressives if only they would just listen and understand that purportedly conservative principles actually call for progressive policy outcomes.

This is related to the broader tendency which will not admit of a logically consistent position calling for other than liberal policy solutions, which is to say the refusal to consider the necessity of compromise.

Whether this mode is better or worse than its Manichean competitor is open to question.
