Liberalism explained as a guilt complex

From John Lennon's last interview:
"No messages from any phony politician are coming through me." I said that earlier and it's still true. That still stands. I dabbled in so-called politics in the late Sixties and Seventies more out of guilt than anything. Guilt for being rich, and guilt thinking that perhaps love and peace isn't enough and you have to go and get shot or something, or get punched in the face, to prove I'm one of the people. I was doing it against my instincts. [p.96 of ISBN:0312254644]
