17. When I was in college, all those many years ago, I investigated
the ideas of the extreme right (Ayn Rand, etc.) as well as those of the extreme left (Marx, Engels, and even Trotsky). I rejected them all because I found, as this man explains, that in each case, they were cruel. They just wanted people to suffer.

That is when I decided to be a liberal. I would like to have a world in which there is less anger and suffering.

I can't figure out how that young woman could seduce any man who wasn't a masochist to begin with. But, then, maybe all of her boyfriends are masochists. Could explain a lot about conservatives.
