We need to understand that

25 May

the “blue” model is cruel. Venezuela? Cruel

Really has there ever been a Lefty government that has NOT been cruel? From Hitler to Stalin to Pol Pot to Chavez, we see the same thing over and over. It is immoral.

 

Leftist regimes

22 May

have always focused on the children. The NAZIs did it, the USSR was famous for taking kids from parents, etc.

But why? Why such focus on the children?

Here is the reason: Leftism depends on narcissism and traditional families don’t reliably inculcate that, so the gummint takes the kids away. One child only is ideal for that. See, there is a need to cultivate the desire for someone to match every want and meet every need. Gov’t is happy to fill that role–though of course they will need to control everyone and take from those who have.

Leftism in many ways is defined by narcissism and depends on such personality pathology in order to survive. So they take kids in order to “groom” that.

Parenting and political philosophy are closely linked.

 

We are starting

22 May

to see the end game of the “blue” model. Look, someone will be looking, disappointed, for a chair when the music stops. That’s how Leftism works. As Margaret Thatcher once said, “At some point you run out of other people’s money.”

We need to understand that the “blue” model is the problem, here. It is a dog that don’t hunt. It always collapses after a time and leaves a huge number of victims (see: Russia). This is NOT an “accident,” it is part and parcel with Leftism itself. It is not a “bug,” it is a defining characteristic of Leftism. That’s what Leftism is! Leftism=delayed misery–one just hopes that one can get a chair when the music stops.

Here is the problem: Most people can think only in the short-term, and they assume that they will get a chair when the music stops (or that it will stop only after they are dead). And yes, I understand why that is (Hint: Narcissism plays a HUGE role–which is why pride and childrearing are so crucial).

But it is very important to understand that Leftism is a short-term philosophy. It’s like a pyramid scheme–the first participants make out like, uh, bandits, but the subsequent ones get hosed–though they all thought they would get rich–it’s just that the last chumps were lied to. But eventually the music stops and someone is standing there looking for a chair with a big “L” pasted on their forehead. The victims are just so narcissistically deluded that they think it won’t be them–did I mention childrearing?

That is Leftism. There are the Bernie Sanders types who do indeed get rich, but eventually the music does indeed stop. It always stops.

Now Conservativism does not have that moral weakness. You eat what you kill, and you voluntarily share with those who can’t hunt. And don’t be fooled, Leftism pretends to be otherwise, but it is indeed immoral.

 

The totalitarian Left.

19 May

Understand well that the Left is totalitarian in nature.

Yes, they put a smiley face on despotism, and because of the lamestream MSM being such Lefty shills they are often not called on it, but let’s call them what they are–dictators in waiting. And there’s no question that many are fooled by that smiley face. They don’t think deeper than the surface, and that is why they are snookered by Leftism.

There is not a single example over the last 50 years (or much more) of a despot on the Right. I just doesn’t happen. That’s because Conservative ideology just doesn’t fit with despotism. Leftist ideology certainly does.

That’s why all the despots in history and around the world are virtually always Leftists. 99.99999% of the time. You logically can’t be both a despot and on the Right. Those two things are internally inconsistent. And for those of you who care about morals, THAT should tell you which way the wind blows. Pay attention.

like almost all Lefty boondoggles, ‘net neutrality is a bunch of crap, and it hurts people. That’s what ALL Leftism does. It sounds good on the surface, but it produces misery. It fools some because it sounds good superficially, but it reality it is a whited sepulcher–it has great carvings on the outside but inside it is full of dead men’s bones and all manner of putrification.

We need to understand this:

09 May

Leftism turns good into evil.

It is good to be kind toward others–to help them out when they are in need. But Leftism takes money at the point of a gun from producers, cycles it through an army of lackeys, and gives the few cents left to the unfortunate person.

Killing pain is good. But if you had no pain, you would be prone to significant injury.

I hate to mention it again, but both Gandalf and Galadriel refuse the Ring of Power for the exact same reason: They would take it to do good, but it would not turn out that way. There is but one Lord of the Ring, and he does not share power.

It’s a great line,

and totally true: “Progressives claim to love science, but what they really love is power.”

What we need to understand that at heart Leftism is a political philosophy based on force. It is a product of a lust for power.

They operate under the garb of science, but it really is scientism. It is an 8-year-old girl dressing up in her mom’s dress and high heels with her mom’s lipstick smeared gracelessly on her face. She is wearing the dress, but it of course drowns her. The heels are way too big and are just ludicrous. The look is far from sexy. It’s charming, but NOT sexy. And yet your wife looks terrific in that dress and those fabulous shoes! It’s not really the dress, it’s what’s under the dress.

But the Lefty media would have you think that little girl now looks like the next Brigitte Bardot. Yeah, no.

Science for them is not one of several ways of knowing, but a club with which to bludgeon your opponents. But of course when going down that road, the Left always rather quickly gets to the point where it is not about knowledge at at all–it is only about coercion and power. It devolves into raw political force.

I’t’s not the garb of science that counts, it’s what’s under that garb.
