If you're not a liberal when you're 25, you have no heart. If you're not a conservative by the time you're 35, you have no brain.
—Anselm Polycarpe Batbie

When people, media and political parties who were left-leaning got tired of their left-leaning ways. It can happen in two different ways: it can be a sudden, or slow rightward turn over the years. This phenomenon can also involve finding born-again Christianity, being involved in reactionary movements and right-wing identity politics, or free-market absolutism.
