I’d never heard of Keith Thompson before this evening, but from this interview and his new blog he seems like a smart and interesting guy. He’s among a growing number of people who, like blogger Dean Esmay, are liberal without being to the left. How’s that possible you ask? Read the interview and find out.
I’m sure I don’t agree with everything he does (in fact, I disagree with a few of his statements in that same interview) but I agree with a lot of it. I think this is part of a growing trend toward a different political spectrum than the one we’ve been used to for so long. Where the real division is no longer between Political Left and Political Right but between freedom and control. Right now the "conservatives" are far more interested in freedom than their counterparts on the left, who still call themselves liberals. Strange, isn’t it?
