by having the government take over everything!
Want to play? No???
Too bad, you’re already playing and just don’t know it!
Here’s something to think about regarding the path that the empty chair wishes the rest of us to follow:
How worthy and moral can an ideal be that punishes achievement and criminalizes human nature?
Proponents of economic equality are either willfully blind, or are themselves sociopathic megalomaniacs, trying to create a restrictive system in which they envision themselves to be part of the powerful ruling elite. Both are willing to go to extremes in order to achieve their goal. As they spin their tale of an imminent paradise, they never say what it will cost us to get there — and, frankly, they don’t give a damn. Individual human sacrifice is never an obstacle for collectivists; their glorious end justifies any unsightly means.
It is up to us then to examine just what exactly we will have to give up for the promise of economic equality — something that has been proven to not exist.
At first we will have to accept restrictions on certain consumer choices and products in exchange for letting the government take care of our personal well-being. Then come restrictions on speech and activities: a price for maintaining the national well-being. Eventually all dissent is suppressed and criminalized, as the media falls under the government control, young people are indoctrinated in the “new ways,” businesses pay enormous taxes, more and more families descend into misery and live off government subsidies, the economy crumbles, and shortages create long lines at the supermarket.
The leaders shift the blame to “enemies of the people,” saying that this country would have been a dreamland if it weren’t for a few greedy reactionaries. With no one left to object, desperate citizens succumb to the hatred and accept the idea that eliminating the few is a fair price to pay for improving the lives of the many. Then they accept the idea that eliminating an entire class of people is a small price to pay. But despite all the bloodletting, the promised collectivist paradise never arrives and the misery only increases. By now the demoralized, destitute masses are fully separated from the ruling elites by an impenetrable wall of privilege.
The ultimate price — the relentless sacrifice of millions of people: their work, careers, ambitions, property, and lives — has been paid to reach an unattainable economic mirage, a phantom concocted in the feverish minds of a few maniacs obsessed with class envy.
In contrast, the price of living in a free and prosperous capitalist society is merely to accept economic inequality as a natural extension of human nature. Without doubt, it’s a small price to pay for remaining a free, productive, and moral people who live in harmony with objectively true moral principles, otherwise known as the natural moral law.
The Obama Record: Lost in all the back-and-forth over the removal of Winston Churchill’s bust from the Oval Office is why the president would snub the Brits. The answer is his father and his Kenyan roots.
The man sitting in the Oval Office views the Anglo-American alliance through the same anticolonial lens as his late father and their shared hero — Frantz Fanon — who argued that America and Britain were the great oppressors of the world.
From 1920 to 1963, Britain colonized Kenya, and according to Obama, mistreated his grandfather in the process.
He also claims his father was detained briefly during the emergency declared by the British to put down the savage Mau-Mau uprising there.
Winston Churchill, you see, was prime minister at the time, and as such became the object of their scorn.
As Britain was putting down the rebellion, its embassy in the U.S. warned that Kenyans seeking to study in the U.S. shared a dangerous antipathy toward both Britain and America. The exchange students happened to include Obama’s father, Barack Hussein Obama Sr., whom our current president worshipped.
A 1959 British cable said the group of students had radical ties and a reputation for “both anti-American and anti-white” views.
In my other life in Communist Romania, I managed a large intelligence organization that, among other tasks, was charged with keeping alive a nationalized health care system which in the end bankrupted the country and generated popular contempt. That system, very similar to the Affordable Health Care for America Act, was a bureaucratic nightmare. And it still is a nightmare in the former Soviet empire.A European Union report on post-Communist Romania’s “Health Care System in Transition” stated that this system “devastated the country,” whose infant mortality rate 20.2 per 1,000 was among the highest in Europe and whose death rate was 70% higher that the EU average.[i] The world’s leading general medical journal, The Lancet, reported that even twenty years after the Soviet Union collapsed, “life expectancy at birth is 66 years for Russians; 16 years less than for people in Japan and 14 less than the European Union average.”[ii]My past experience gave me reason to believe that the recent decision of the U.S. Supreme Court to keep the Affordable Health Care for America Act alive constituted a much needed wake-up call for our conservative movement. Since 2009, when the Democratic Party began surreptitiously nationalizing the U.S. health care system, our conservative movement has done nothing but weep and wail and wait for God in heaven and the Supreme Court on earth to save America from such a calamity.
Responding to a bloodbath of violence over the weekend, Chicago Police Supt. Garry McCarthy said Monday that he’s seeing an “uptick” in gang conflicts — and will soon provide beat cops with better information about gangs to stop retaliatory shootings. Gangs were responsible for almost all of the 37 shootings and nine murders from Friday through Sunday, McCarthy said. When he took over as superintendent almost a year ago, gangs represented about half the firearm violence, but now they’re to blame for more than 80 percent of it, McCarthy said. “They are splintering off into smaller gang factions and it’s getting more difficult for us to track and predict what’s going to happen next,” he said. via Mayor: City to do more to fight violence after bloody weekend – Chicago Sun-Times.
An indigenous native to the crime invested gangland provides an articulate analysis and offers a solution:
‘Forced to stand for 24 hours, suicide nets, toxin exposure and explosions’: Inside the Chinese factories making iPads for Apple ‘Working excessive overtime without a single day off during the week’ ‘Living together in crowded dorms and exposure to dangerous chemicals’ Two explosions in 2011 in China ‘due to aluminum dust’ killed four workers Almost 140 injured after using toxin in factory, reports New York Times.
China is probably 100 years behind the U.S. regarding industrial safety and worker’s rights. Apple still charges a hefty price for its products while they benefit from the slave labor in the People’s Republic of China. The media is probably too busy harping on Rush Limbaugh or some other innocuous non-story.
