Why are some groups, allowed to keep asking for something, while other groups are not?

Abortion - settled forever.
Marijuana - not settled, ever.
Quebec separation - not settled until they get the answer they want.
Gun control - settled forever.

It's not always a bad thing for a given issue to be settled forever. It just depends if you like the outcome or not.

Liberals tend to make better protesters than conservatives do.

The reason being that conservatives are generally happy with their country (otherwise, they wouldn't focus on conserving what they like about it), and just want to lead productive, gainfully employed lives. For most conservatives, politics is only something they venture into when work does not preoccupy them, and when something is afoot that really and truly pisses them off.


Liberals are generally unhappy with their country, or at least not content with where it is (otherwise, they wouldn't put so much focus on "progressing" all the time, which is just a fancy way of saying they want rapid and constant change towards some sort of ideal in their minds). Liberals tend to be more revolutionary in their vision; they actively search out things to complain about and/or try to fix. Whereas conservatives have to be roused into action and loads of problems typically escape their notice, the liberals will nitpick over every little thing that seems off to them. It's no surprise that political correctness is held in such high esteem by liberals, because it's the art of nitpicking over the little innocuous things in what people say and do.


People who are generally happy and content don't make good protesters. So, it's easier to shout them down, and make their protestations go away.

People who are generally unhappy and constantly seeking change make good protesters. It's much harder to shout them down, and make their protestations go away.


So, nothing is ever "settled" if its displeasing to left-leaning protesters.

Certain things listed in the Opening Post I thought were settled. For example I thought Quebec's status was settled between Montcalm and Wolfe on the Plains of Abraham.

Your examples show you define "forever" with temporal limits. Forever usually means endless temporal duration. For instance, abortion is not settled forever, only for some time. Some questions appear never to be settled because we live in a mysterious universe as mortal beings who cannot know whether anything is settled forever because we die before forever is over ...

The minute liberals win an issue it is considered "settled forever".
