this is a very good article.
But I want to underline something: Always, always, ALWAYS attack. Always. It is your moral duty.
That is very much related to this: Remember that the Right absolutely has the moral high ground.
That is why the Left has been (laughably) bent on saying the NAZIs (National Socialists) were on the Right and other such nonsense. They love to say that they are “one the right side of history” (an intrinsically moral argument). They are desperate to call anything “Right” morally bad (and vice-versa). It should be no surprise at all that they make a moral argument. Even the rug in Obama’s Office famously has a moral saying on it. The Left correctly understands that this is fundamentally a moral argument–that is the ground upon which we fight. And it has always been this way.
But in fact that the Leftist account of the world is the complete opposite of the TRUTH. Yes, it fits both their own beliefs and their desire for power and dominion. But it is a lie, plain and simple. They are just being disingenuous in an effort to capture the moral high ground. Don’t be snookered!
Compromise is almost always the enemy. I don’t want soup with just a teeny bit of poop in it. I’m not going to compromise on THAT.
In the past the Right has unwisely and erroneously ceded that moral high ground to the Left. They thought that by being weak and compromising and accommodating they would be respected. Wrong. They were untrinsically modest and willing to question themselves. They were taken advantage of because they were polite. Now is NOT the time to be polite. Being polite is getting us taken advantage of.
Look, Leftist ideas have caused untold misery in every single country where it has been forced on people. There was a partial exception in a small and culturally homogenius country (Sweden) but that is more due to the people rather than to the system. Swedes are relatively successful in the US once they come here, too. It’s not Leftism, it is Swedish-ness. But even this is an exception. The best you can say is that before diversity, partial Leftism was not horrible in Sweden. That is the best you can say. After diversity? Not so much.
The moral response is and always has been Conservatism. From time immemorial it has been moral agency at issue–Conservatism is both moral and makes economic sense. Leftism is immoral and antithetical to moral agency itself. Oh, and it doesn’t work. There is a reason that soldiers had to get out and push Castro’s hearse! The reason is Leftism. It is not just that Conservatism is more effective (it obviously is), it is that it is far more moral. Leftism is the doctrine of force. It is the doctrine of the bullet. It is the doctrine of misery and expl0itation.
And you and I should attack it as immoral. Never stop. As a moral person, I have no other choice.
