    Word games, moral equivocation, speech policing, a lack of objectivism are all factors here.

    The Republocrats in general exhibit moral nihilism, and only break out morality so much as it can be used as a talking point. But none of them walk that walk. They'll do what they want, when they want, and damn everyone else.

    Exactly... it amounts to two different flavors of mental illness.

The two types are sometimes referred to as guilt by association and honor by association. Association fallacies are a special case of red herring, and can be based on an appeal to emotion.[citation needed]

    Molyneux is an outspoken libertarian, did you watch the video?
    It's as biased as your most recent polls.

    Re: Does the left exhibit moral nihilism?

    Yeah I think so to your average person it is. Western leftism is my favorite ideology though. It melds between racism and non racism, traditionalism and non traditionalism, hierarchy and anti hierarchy, and so so much more. It's pure duality of morals and beliefs and views that only a native Westerner could truly understand to make sense out of it. Which is why I like it all the more. It's essentially an ideology that requires a very conservative person initially in order to control and deal internally with its deep moral duality.


    You can be moral with leftism but it requires a studied, already ideologically sound and deep individual, which naturally precludes most people. The brash truth is your average conservative person or liberal person "can't hack" the duality of a Marxist-Esq Leftism. They need things to be red or blue. They can't mentally accept the racism, the traditionalism all combined with the social leftism and economic leftism of Marxism. It's too much for your average person to intake. They'll combust and come to the conclusion that it's merely nihilism or racism or some other easily describable phenomena.

    I think liberals are more likely to be moral relativists, which some people confuse with moral nihilism.

    I know, people like to try to differentiate the two all the time. But there's no left without the right, and this case they are but two sides of the same coin.

    Exactly, why can't people understand that when someone starts a thread with a loaded poll, they are not looking for any objective answers. Seems pretty obvious so I am not sure why some people have such a hard time with it.

    Everyone is a moral relativist. Just some people like to think they aren't.
