ConsiderTHIS: Political Identity vs Ideology
March 10 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm| Main Library (Traverse City)
What is your Political Identity? How do we define Conservative or Liberal (and what’s a Libertarian anyway)? Are they tied to the Political Parties or ideologies unto themselves?
Although everyone agrees that there is a difference between being a conservative and being a liberal (or a progressive), it’s harder to say in precisely what that difference consists. Self-described conservatives might characterize liberal belief systems in ways that liberals themselves would not accept, and the same is true the other way around – liberals might be quick to mischaracterize conservatives in ways that self-described conservatives might not accept. Is there a way to characterize this distinction in ways that (most) everyone accepts?
