Voegeli on “Values” vs. Morals

Maggie’s Farm calls our attention to precision flaying of the imprecision of liberal-socialism.

Maggie’s Farm links us to a Claremont Institute article by William Voegeli, who allows a trio of liberals enough rope to hang themselves.

Mr. Voegeli explains the distortion introduced by our contemporary, artificial distinction between values and moral beliefs and, in doing so, shows that what purports to be scientific is nothing more than moral relativism.

For additional discussion of the points he raises, see:
