Whig oder Tory?

Via Brad Spangler:
Wer bei uns zu den Tories gehört ist klar: Alles von Gauweiler bis Lafontaine. Aber gibt es in Deutschland überhaupt vereinzelt noch ein paar Whigs? Merz und Metzger sind zwar begnadete Selbstdarsteller, aber in der Sache weder Fisch noch Fleisch und mit einem ähnlichen Fragezeichen zu versehen wie Bob Barr, der Präsidentschaftskandidat der "Libertarian Party", die heute noch "Party of Principle" zu nennen mir zuviel Ironie abverlangte . Möglicherweise ist der Bundestagsabgeordnete Frank Schaeffler das weiße Schaf in der schwarzen Herde?
Jedenfalls besteht auch das Lager der selbsternannten Liberalen (und sogar der Libertären!) hierzulande überwiegend aus Tories, die sich für Whigs ausgeben! Jim Davidson macht deutlich, warum es problematisch ist, wenn zwischen "Klassisch Liberal/Libertär" und "Konservativ" die Trennschärfe verloren geht:

"I won't ever make the mistake of considering conservatives to be libertarians. They are not. They can talk a game about freedom for white people, they can make a pretense about constitutional government for the Christians, and they can mount a patrol against swarthy-complected persons coming across the border and claim it is all about property rights for ranchers along the border, but I don't have to choose to believe it.

[...]

For exactly the same reason we cannot compromise on the war on drugs, we cannot compromise on the wars overseas, we cannot compromise on the corrupt allocation of defense contracts, we cannot compromise on any of our principles. We have to stand for freedom for everyone, all the time."



Man ist Whig oder man ist Tory! Beides zugleich ergibt keinen Sinn!

Zur Graphik: Barack Obama ist aber mit seinem Beharren auf Bürgerrechten zumindest ein halber Whig (IMHO). Und Bob Barr ist ein Dreiviertel-Tory!

Alexander said...

Auch sehr schön und eigentlich selbstverständlich, diese Ermahnung Davidson's:

I think libertarians must come out directly, staunchly, entirely, and frequently against racism, sexism, gay bashing, immigrant bashing, and all the other tawdry aspects of the so-called conservative movement. I think we have to stand up and say that if you are a racist, you are not a libertarian, if you are a sexist, you are not a libertarian, if you are against equal freedom for gays, the transgendered, the polyamorous, you are not a libertarian, if you discriminate against people because of their choice of religion, you are not a libertarian, if you think people from other countries should be rejected because of their choices in clothing, culture, religion, or behavior, you are not a libertarian.

Chords introduce harmony into music and it is the effects created by chords that produce the inspiration behind so
much music and make it so satisfying both to listen to and
to play. Instead, focus on a single thing or just a
couple of things, and try not to move forward until you have reached those goals.

activity that has an entertaining, instructive and competing
