Lillis place for rants and musing about life, universe and the whole rest. Mostly left, mostly sarcastic, sometimes in german, sometimes in Lilli-english.

As you might see soon, english is not my mothertongue. And since english speaking people are used to others stumble around in their language, I hope I don't make too much of an idiot of myself here. So - my deepest apologies adressed to the English Language for not worshipping her better.

And I thought I was just in the wrong corner of the Blogosphere
when I saw so many right wing Blogs and so little lefties. I was convinced there are as much and it's just my fault for not having found them.
This seems to be a wrong theory. Yet. At least according to The England Project, who is linking to the Adam Smith Institute who think they can explain why there are more rightie than leftie Bloggers.
I'd add one more reason.
Just what do you think? Why did the christian belief win over all the other ones in the western world? I'd say because it's an easy belief. Compared to the Muslim or the Buddhist, as a christ I have a pretty easy life. All I have to do is to confess my sins from time to time and to live by the ten commandments (and whatever my priest in charge thinks) and heaven is mine. The expectations of other religions seem pretty much harder to me. You don't have to know, not to understand, all you have to do is to believe. Easy.
I think it's the same with right wing politics in the US. All you have to do is to believe. You don't have to know and it's pretty much not wanted that you understand. Just believe. Believe in a strong Dollar, believe in George W. Bush.
Okay, and so, because being a rightie is so much easier than a leftie, it's totally clear why so many Blogs are right winged. ;-)
