Confessions of a Liberal
For most of his life, Kevin Hawkins believed that liberalism is so obviously ethical. Liberals marched for peace, workers’ rights, civil rights, and secularism. The Republican Party, which embodies conservatism, was the party of war, big business, racism, and evangelical Christianity. He could not understand how any thinking person could voluntarily embrace the party of evil. He felt that we have nothing to learn from conservative ideologies.
And he was wrong.
For his presentation, Kevin “liberally” lifts concepts from “The Righteous Mind; Why Good People are Divided by Politics and Religion” by Jonathan Haight.
Kevin got his degree in Psychology from the University of Minnesota, owns an independent insurance agency, and has been married to his best friend, Beverly, for 35 years.
