I thought that was Churchill.
"Pain or damage don't end the world nor despair, nor fuckin' beatings. The world ends when you're dead, until then you have more punishment in store. Stand it like a man, and give some back."

The statement is false.

A human being needs both a heart and a brain to be alive, let alone have political leanings.

I know the russian variant - If you're russian older than 20 years and you're not a communist you have no heart, if you're a russian older than 40 years and you're not a communist you probably have no brain, too.

On the come up we were listening to Grateful Dead and the music started passing through my bowel and out my arsehole as this violet stream of light. I shat music. It was beautiful.

I guess this means I don't have a heart. Or maybe Nero is right...

I'd like to form my own political views rather than listen to some self absorbed shitty person.
I don't actually follow politics at all, either way this quote is only worth of writing on a soft paper and wiping my ass with it.

Being 42, I understand this quote. Generally, younger people are more idealistic and emotionally driven, which leans toward the Liberal side of politics. As you work your way through the world and become more experienced, wise, and jaded, you have a tendency to approach things from a more practical, not theoretical view. The fact is, most Liberal ideas are great in theory, but rarely work in practice.

I suppose you could compare it to Jesus advising to "turn the other cheek" when avoided with confrontation. While it sounds like a great(peaceful, humanitarian) thing to due, the reality is you'll probably get your ass kicked when you should have just put up a fight. Is it worth it to you to take a constant asskicking in order to stick to your beliefs?

Surely the reason is that when you're young you have no money and likely no family, and so conservatism provides no benefits;when you're middle age you have money and probably a family and so it makes sense to want to kick immigrants out and stop paying for the derm whippersnerpers to go to uni.

The implication being that conservatism is correct?

No the implication is that being young and liberal is fitting because liberals are dreamers who are optimistic and becoming older makes you more conservative because you become more cynical due to life experience and realize the limitations of the dreamer part of liberalism.
