Conservatism is about envy and resentment. The old resent the young. The rich resent the poor. The healthy resent the sick. The corrupt resent the pure.

The grumpy old conservatives chose to live in the mirror universe, with evil goateed Spock.

Here on my side of the glass, the shy but earnest young scholar is now a distinguished gentleman with as many friends as he cares to handle - while the beautiful young things who once looked down their noses now flock to Red Hat clubs and drink themselves blind while complaining about the UNFAIRNESS of it all. Sell while you can, you are not for all markets.

So I don't care how anyone lives his life. There is plenty of karma to go around.
