"I remember reading something saying that much of modern conservatism is rooted in this idea that life is somehow graded on a curve - that not only is being better off than someone else more important than simply being well off, but how much better off you are is even more important than that. It's not wanting inner-city schools to improve since it means that the private school you send your kids to won't be as dramatically better. It's the belief that even if you have a good job and own your own house, car, and business, the fact that the Pakistani-American engineer who lives three houses down drives a better car than you somehow invalidates your success." -- Blaise Camacho, Facebook, comments (thanks to [info] realinterrobang for quoting this earlier)
