I'm sure it would be as biased, but the comparison should really be liberal/conservative or progressive/traditionalist. By mixing them you run the risk of comparing one more loaded term with one less loaded one.

I agree. And most of those words seem to match their "tradition" definitions. I don't understand why Catholic is under Liberal and think Red-neck under traditionalist is bias/loaded.

The Catholic thing I don't understand either. Liberals (especially these days) hate tradition, while Catholics will have a stroke if you go against TRADITIONtm

Seconded. Also the "traditional" (heh) meaning of the word "liberal" is pretty much what they say. Modern liberals are massive distortion of it since they are very authoritarian.

A fuddy-duddy is a person who's not seen as being very fun or outgoing. It's synonymous with killjoy to an extent. It shouldn't be a synonym of traditionalist at all.

I've started my own small collection of older dictionaries just for this reason. I like the one and only unabridged edition I have the most, it is also printed during the Reagan administration. The eldest I think I have is 60's, not sure. Really want to get my hands on one that is between 1900-1920, maybe 1910, something beyond 100 years and out of a world war spectrum.

Fag has some interesting older definitions....
