Liberalism has nothing to do with shareing or taxing anything. What is shown here is actual socialism. I know the word often is associated with other things in America, but socialism is about shareing wealth by taxes, liberalism is about something completely different, like freedom to do what you want with your own money, and body (about drugs for example)

I'm pretty sure being conservative and libertarian values represent essentially the same everywhere .. and really? Do you still think the world revolves around your precious 'Murica?

The world does revolve around America though. Everything that happens to this country effects the whole world.

We have that in the netherlands, it sucks.

Sharing wealth is just distribution of wealth and is usually a policy of a socialist government but Americans have now defined there own idea of liberalism. Google 'Modern liberalism in america' they have redefined it to mean something along the lines of left wing which is just ridiculous as left wing and liberalism are not interchangeable terms, the political compass shows this. The idea america has a true left wing party is laughable.

Actualy, if we put them on a scale... Liberalism is right smack between socialism and conservatism. They try to cater to the middle-class, conservatism to the upper-class, and socialism to the lower-class, aka. The "working class".
Personaly, I'm a social liberalist, meaning I will vote for either just to help the lower and middle classes even though I'm technicly born in the upper class.

Overall, all three agree that we must change into an equal future, slowly gaining equality and erasing classes entirely, however, they have different oppinions how.
Socialists want to make the change quick, and therefore make it so taxes are at a higher precentage the more you earn every year.
Liberalists want a slower change and argue for the point that if a certain person becomes rich, his/her money will slowly flow into the rest of the society since he needs things like food and such as well, and the providers also need to spend money.
Conservatists are the only ones who don't entirely agree that the upper two are valid causes, and instead argue that things were a lot better before, since according to them, there weren't any global economical problems before 20th century.

But there's a lot more to this than just economy. Socialism wants everyone to have full access to hospitals and school without the need for insurance or money. Socialism isn't the state 'stealing' money from the people, because all of the money levied is put back into things like healthcare and schools, as well as a huge chunk going into elderly care, meaning that most of the taxes you payed as young, will be returned to you when you're older.

TL;DR- Socialism isn't evil commie stuff, there's a lot to it. Oh and Liberalism isn't in the slightest related to socialism, it's got a lot more connections to Conservatism.

Apparently both believe in people stealing by watching the game from outside instead of paying for tickets.

******* conserverals.

What people need to realise is that there is a middle ground. Not every conservative wants to milk the working class like cattle -- they simply wish that people would strive their hardest in life without feeling tempted to fall back on welfare. Meanwhile, not every liberal wants some sort of socialist state, either -- rather, they'd like everyone to have an equal foothold in life, from which they can strive forward and work hard while simply feeling secure and accepted in society.
When we look at things in terms of black and white, we simply widen the gaps and rifts between people, and that makes keeping society stable a far more arduous task than it needs to be. If we could understand that people among opposing parties, with opposing beliefs, can find some middle ground, I think we'd come to agreements a good deal quicker than we do now, and with far less shouting and name-calling along the way.

Equality to a sensible person.
User avatar #91 to #89 - latinotornado (12/28/2012) [-]
thats no longer equality, nor is it political. when the taller (richer) gentle men gives the smaller (poorer) person his box (money), that is charity. That has nothing to do with conservative or liberal physiology or what the comic is trying to portray
User avatar #93 to #91 - midnyteshadow (12/28/2012) [-]
Actually, that's distribution of wealth. Which is a socialist principle that the left is often accused of supporting,

except people have the possibility to make more money but they don't have the possibility of becoming taller

Gross over simplification of the issue....

I'd add more, but I have to go now and earn my box...

I find the most ironic slogan amongst socialists to be: "power to the people".
If you really want the people to have power, you have to decrease the power of governement.
#132 - beerholder ONLINE (12/28/2012) [-]
there is no absolute doctrine, no universal truth, no perfect ideology. if you follow all the government policies from wherever in the world at any time in history, you'll see that moderation has always been the rule.

Seriously why not make a fence of wires instead of wooden panels then everyone will be happy.

To be Conservative is to lower the fence for the midget.

Lol'd, but not sure how I feel about OP deleting a whole ******* conversation in the comments

He probably lost a debate to a liberal

Nope, it was just a failed troll attempt. Notice how no one got thumbs from it, even me :P

There are debates and FJ now?
User avatar #174 to #15 - robertolee (12/28/2012) [-]
I debated dppwrestler on the original post but I don't think anyone won, we just shared our points of view and he was not insulting or offensive at all which is how a debate should be.
User avatar #256 to #174 - dppwrestler (12/29/2012) [-]
I only deleted it for sake of thumbs which really was not much to worry about now that I look at it haha fair argument however.

User avatar #215 - Soilwork (12/28/2012) [-]
Just goes to show that after thousands of years humans still haven't found a system that works. Everyone is greedy on their own way no matter the wealth.
#218 to #215 - anon (12/28/2012) [-]
Exactly. Just look at the romans and their politics and just how little it truly have changed since then.

I'm pretty sure liberals would just tell the tall guy to give the midget his box.
#217 to #201 - satansatan (12/28/2012) [-]
You don't really get the meaning of this, do you?
User avatar #219 to #217 - myrtille (12/28/2012) [-]
What is it then?
#245 to #219 - satansatan (12/28/2012) [-]
He is basically giving the midget what equals one of the box, but the liberals just see it as if they're cutting off his legs... you know.
Liberals see it as if taxes take something really vital from them, when actually they are just helping other people.
User avatar #246 to #245 - myrtille (12/28/2012) [-]
What?
Liberals are the ones who are a-okay with taxes. It's conservatives who hate them.
The way I see it, the conservatives are giving everybody something equal: one box. The tall guy doesn't need it. The middle guy kinda needs it. The short guy really needs two of them to be able to see. But, it's "fair", since they all got one box, but we aren't all the same, so to make things equal, you need to give everybody x boxes until they can see over the fence.
There's really no reason for them to depict the short guy getting the tall guy's legs, when most people would just take his box. He doesn't need the box. Why should he have it? The midget really needs it. He should have it.
It's a classic butthurt political comic by a conservative who is trying to demonize liberals.
#248 to #246 - satansatan (12/29/2012) [-]
Damn my ignorance.
You are actually right. It's probably because of the socialism vs liberalism where I come from, that I tend to call stuff/people, that's actually conservative, liberal.
My apologies!
But we do agree then, beside my misunderstanding with the political differences... which was a pretty big boomer.
User avatar #249 to #248 - myrtille (12/29/2012) [-]
Well, that's assuming this is American politics. Since people are playing baseball, I'm lead to believe that. I can totally understand where you can get confused. It's backwards in so many ways here. It's no problem.

I am prepared to absorb many red thumbs for this but i think that we should give everyone an equal shot, and then they're on their own. If they become impoverished then that is their own god damn problem.
User avatar #231 to #224 - darkjustifier ONLINE (12/28/2012) [-]

The original was correct. Yours is just a reflection of upper class victim mentality even though there are poor people who can't afford to feed their kids who complain less.
User avatar #257 to #188 - dppwrestler (12/29/2012) [-]
Well, I originally came from a home life not far above the poverty line (to put it plainly, there were many a few days I had to sit and roll coins to help my parents pay their normal monthly payments) and have only in the past 6-8 years moved up to lowen end, upper middle class stature. What many people don't see is that taxing those who make slightly higher than the average man actually hurts that man's chance of continuing to be successful, especially if he makes his living running his own business. I explained it better in another comment, but the tax rate increase is severely more drastic to us who work hard for our living and still make it above the middle class line.
