The people's choice

Kinsley, Michael
December 1993
New Republic;12/20/93, Vol. 209 Issue 25, p6
The author reflects on the political conservatism. The author has stressed that the conservatives must have the need to mask their true ideological identity in euphemisms. He has emphasized that in the 1980s liberals often resorted to euphemisms like "progressive" to avoid being tarred with the word, which was considered politically disadvantageous.
