    Does the left exhibit moral nihilism?

    Morality is a constant topic in politics. All sides seek to appear moral to an extent (for votes) but politics and reality aren't often the same.
    Word games, moral equivocation, speech policing, a lack of objectivism are all factors here.

    What brought up the idea for this post was a clip I viewed today. Molyneux (an atheist libertarian) makes some great points.

    These ridiculous partisan polls are getting rather annoying. Surely you can find something more meaningful to talk about...

    Re: Does the left exhibit moral nihilism?

    i think there are plenty of liberals who believe in good and evil; i'd say that belief system is more appropriately labeled "moral relativism"

    some times its okay to raise taxes, other times not, depends on the context.

    not unique to liberals though in my opinion

    This is a political forum. And what party is the left?

    I am going to go out on a limb and say "no". It is not going out on much of a limb since the truth is that the premise is painfully stupid and has no basis in any form of reality. Just a bit of advice: you should probably spend some time promoting what you actually stand for, instead of trying to attack groups you are against. Harder, takes more moral courage, but more effective by far.

    ... adherence to any political ideology usually constitutes nihilism in some degree or another. In the most elevated terms, you've made an arbitrary and pointless choice to pit Yin against Yang.

    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    I do not think most people "adhere" to an ideology, only that one described their basic thought processes.
