    Liberals and Conservatives: Are adherents of the rival ideology evil?

    Its meant to be a zero sum, bottom line question.

    I don't identify enough with either ideology to cast a vote either way; I generally dislike conservatism more but more often than not wind up feeling every person who has ever existed is evil and that ideology is them showing their most evil side: unrelentingly hypocritical, unfailingly self-serving and self-congratulatory, and all round conceited.

    In my better moments, I try to tell myself no one is evil.

    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.

    Why wouldn't it be? Liberals and conservatives constantly talk about their opposition as though that opposition was evil, even if not all of them use that exact word.

    Because I don't expect anyone who is not completely extreme on either end of the political spectrum would to believe that other people are evil based on their political ideology?

    People are more nuanced than just left or right, and the qualities required to be determine if someone as evil are different from the qualities used to determine ones political leaning.

    I guess I would say that a lot of people believe that certain ideologies, when taken to their furthest extremes, are inherently evil.

    Anyone who thinks that all members of any group are evil based upon the actions of some members of that group is a bigot.

    Does anyone disagree with that?

    Now that we've put this BS out of the way maybe we can move on to some important issues.

    There are positions other than just liberal or conservative, can't vote. Anyway, neither of those two are evil. Both ideologies are right at times and wrong at times. EVIL??????????

    While I wholeheartedly agree ... good luck, man.
