. This is a great quote...
The Philosophers' Blog
"But it turns out that when academics gather to consider revising and restating liberalism, the 'revisions' have the feel of deck chairs being reshuffled on the Titanic. These are thinkers, after all, who have given their lives to left-liberalism in its purest, most theoretical form, in which all the significant questions have been settled and the only remaining difficulty is determining how many sexual identities can dance on the head of a Rawlsian pin. Asking this collection of thinkers to 'get through' to the right by 'restating' their beliefs is like putting the Holy Office of the Inquisition in charge of missionary work."
