"Liberalism is like the old shagged Volvo that keeps working reliably and everyone knows more or less how it works, which is always driven out of the garage and put to good use when all the flashy cars have failed. Yet it is unattractive and boring. Socialism in turn is a shiny, flashy Alfa that appeals to many people but rarely manages to run far, whilst using up all the owner's financial resources. Fascism would thus be the same car in brown, without brakes and the accelerator locked in full speed and without third party insurance."
" From another point of view, modern liberalism is like the legalism of the middle ages, with its dependence upon the merit of man. And another Reformation in God's good time will come."
"Liberalism is like a beige scarf which can be worn with any colour or outfit, to make different, sometimes contradictory statements."
"In the Civilisation of the West, liberalism is like a rot which has appeared in the foundations of a mighty, noble edifice which has taken the best minds of two millennia to build."
"Liberalism is like a restaurant with ugly decor, terrible food, overflowing toilets and roaches scurrying across the floor -- that stays packed every night."
"liberalism is like Yin and conservatism is like Yang then only the labels have changed, and the oppositional tug of war of the political divide continues apace. Yin/Yang does little to "drain some of the heat, anger, and divisiveness" out of politics. Rather, it plugs the drain."
"By destroying all the old values and corrupting the majority population can these other foreign invaders multiply and kill the host. So Values and Morals are like the White Blood Cells but Liberalism is like A.I.D.S once the White Blood Cells become weak then the other disease or destructive populations can infect and corrupt. "
"Liberalism is like some giant, frustrated female crying out for abuse, in some state of procured writhing, awaiting the kiss of death. Yes, it is that sick. These metaphors still don't describe liberalism accurately. It is too manipulative and deceptive to be hosted by poet expression. Liberalism is Satanic. It is the ugliest state humanity can ever experience."
"Liberalism is like Versace, Coach, and Lady Ga Ga...t is fashion, and with all things fashionable, it timorously waits to become irrelevant. When? When they stop placing multiple bumper stickers on their automobiles."
"You could even make the case that liberalism is like drug dealing. You create a clientel by promising them something wonderful that will make them feel better, then you get them dependent on what you provide so that they will keep coming back to you. Nevermind that what they are selling you is destroying you just keep getting it from them."
METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
