"Too Long"

Maintaining a double standard of judgement really means, you get to be held to a standard of behavior, we don't.    Double standards are what aristocracies, oligarchies, dictatorships, slave societies, patriarchal societies, etc. practice.  Double standards are the opposite of a liberal position.  Equal responsibilities, equal treatment are among the defining practices of liberalism, to the extent those are not practiced, to that extent the people violating that are pseudo-liberals.

The Supreme Court building has a lie carved over the entrance:

Imagine what society, economics and politics would have been like if they'd enforced it.   Equality, that is.  It would be a liberal society.   I have to say, I think the Roman fasces over the "D" is a dead giveaway.
