A Unified Theory of Liberal Thinking

Isn’t it interesting that no matter what the current global crisis is, according to leftists, the solution is always the same: a benevolent world dictatorship of the enlightened elite, and mass transfer of wealth from rich nations to poor nations.

That’s what they want to do about global warming. It’s what they wanted to do about overpopulation. It’s what they wanted to do about endangered species.
I would edit that slightly to say "mass transfer of wealth from rich to poor."  This explains why the liberals have so much difficulty conceiving that there is a problem with government spending, the resulting deficits and debt; they simply can't conceive of a case where less government intervention would be be better, because it decreases the need for the all powerful enlightened elite, in which they imagine themselves to be a member.
