Although it is not true that all conservatives are stupid people, it is true that most stupid people are conservative.

When The Economist opines on new ideas and policies, it does so on the basis of their merits, not of who supports or opposes them. Last October, for example, it outlined a programme of reforms to combat inequality. Some, like attacking monopolies and targeting public spending on the poor and the young, had a leftish hue. Others, like raising retirement ages and introducing more choice in education, were more rightish. The result, “True Progressivism“, was a blend of the two: neither right nor left, but all the better for it, and coming instead from what we like to call the radical centre.
