Addicted To Causes

On his radio show Friday, April 2nd, Dennis Prager said: “One of the phenomena of the progressive…parts of society is that they are so addicted to causes. There’s always a cause. If you could list normal left-wing causes and normal right-wing causes… On the right, you have abortion. On the left, it is never-ending. One cause after the next. The latest one was to change health care in America and have the government take over more of the economy than ever before in American history. If one is not on the left, one spends one’s life trying to stop the left.

“Why is the left so addicted to causes? Because they are not religious. The religious have more peace about what exists. How to be at peace with life even in economic difficulties.”

“I bet the overwhelming majority of people who go tea party rallies have jobs.”
