Do leftists, Dems and "progressives" have a superior moral compass?

I would merely like to break down the logic of this.  It's no secret that leftists, Dems and "progressives" pride[*] themselves on having a moral compass superior to that of their political opponents, i.e., the basket of deplorables.  It's also no secret that leftists, Dems and "progressives" are the majority in big coastal cities (NYC, LA, San Fran, etc.).  Does this mean that, according to leftists, Dems and "progressives," the greater the proximity to a big coastal city, the greater the reliability of one's moral compass?

Something tells me there are some severe Dunning-Kruger issues going on here, among leftists, Dems and "progressives."  (For now, that is.)

More where that came from.

(If they're so intellectually and morally superior, why haven't they discovered and promoted philosophy for children yet?)

[*] - Clearly I'm speaking here of a false pride, not legitimate Aristotelian or Randian pride.

[Addendum: As you listen to how Dems/lefties/progs [DLPs] defend abortion rights - in terms of the right of a woman to control her own life - keep in mind that this is how radical pro-freedom people like Rand defend our rights against government controls in general -- i.e., our lives aren't the government's or the demos's to dispose of.  It would appear that, given their lack of philosophical integration, the DLPs are being rather selective in their invocation of freedom on this topic.  Why (the lack of philosophical integration)?]

Make Presidents Great Again

or: What Would Marcus Aurelius Tweet?

The first four presidents of the United States - Washington, Adams, Jefferson, Madison - were philosophical people.  They loved, cherished, and pursued (and may even have attained to some extent) wisdom.  (The American Philosophical Society [APS] of which they were members was co-founded by Ben Franklin; let's call the aforementioned the Big Five of the American Founding.)  It's not a stretch to say that had America's founding generation not been of the intellectual and moral caliber that they were - had they not been the sort of people who would found or become members of a philosophical society - America probably wouldn't be the great nation it has been.

Unfortunately, their legacy has been squandered, to the point that we have the shitshow of today.  Having an uncouth, unread man as president - elected mainly on the promise of taking on the (intellectually bankrupt and therefore) corrupt swamp that is D.C. - is but a symptom of th…

#BlackLivesMatter, #EqualPay and the Anthem

The athletes disrespecting the flag and country during the National Anthem should do better than Trump.  Instead of sowing further division and sending all kinds of the wrong message (and Kaepernick and by extension Nike definitely crossed over the line with the Betsy Ross flag thing without even so much as a word of dialogue with flag- and country-lovers - roughly as shameful and disgraceful as Google's rebuttal-by-firing of James Damore[*]), they should use their creative powers to both respect the flag and send their message.

[*] - This particularly ugly episode in "woke social justice" history has me believing with at least 98% confidence that Rectenwald has these anti-dialogue cultists dead to rights.  I cannot abide these aspiring mini-Maos; disgusting creatures.  I won't even touch the trans issue with a ten foot pole given the rampant toxicity/radioactivity there I've seen just on surface inspection.  If an entity like Google fucks up as badly as it did wi…

How to assemble Hotel VOD framework?

Encoder - The encoder basically convert the source content into fitting codec, for example, MPEG2 or H.264 and bundles it in suitable streamable organization like MPEG2 TS to make it work adequately as an "On request" content. The mo…
