    Conservatism holds that when it comes to equality of anything equality of opportunity is enough.

    Liberalism holds that sometimes just having equality of opportunity is not enough but that some, (meaning minorities), may need an extra leg up above others, (meaning Caucasians), in order for the playing field to be level for everyone.


    So which do you hold to and why?

    I agree with Bishop Fulton J. Sheen, 1943, "Philosophies At War," P.101:

    The Christian solution is to be neither behind Capital nor Labor exclusively, but to be behind Capital when Marxian Socialism would destroy private property, to be behind Labor when Monopolistic Capitalism would claim the priority of profits over the right to a comfortable wage, and to behind the common good when either Capital or Labor would injure it.
