The European Left, as always wanting to control the world (see European empires, WW1, WW2, etc.) now wants, with the full compliance of the American Left (who, now that Obama is in office, are wetting their collective pants trying to Europeanize America – whether Americans like it or not) to… surprise! … control the world!
This has been tried before by Europeans. It resulted in, among other things:
- WW1 (15,000,000 dead)
- Russian Civil War (9,000,000 dead)
- WW2 (55,000,000 dead)
- Cold War (2,100,000 dead in post-war German Expulsions from E. Europe)
- Communist China – adopting the philosophy of the European, Karl Marx (50,000,000 – 80,000,000 dead)
- The USSR – both European AND Communist… 20,000,000 – 30,000,000 dead, and millions imprisoned in the Gulags
- And hundreds of millions in poverty.
And now Europe wants to do it AGAIN?!?
Why the American Left, having shed so much blood already for Europeans (both world wars were entered into by Democrats – the First War because Wilson (D) intercepted a telegram from Germany asking Mexico to invade the US… so, naturally, he waged war on Germany… how dumb was THAT?) now wants to help Europeans control the world, while marginalizing the economy of the only country responsible for global freedom, America, is an unknown to thinking people.
But it is yet more proof, as if any were needed, of the totalitarian instinct of the global Left.
Pelosi’s buy-my-insurance-or-go-to-jail plan is just another example, as is the takeover of the financial and auto industries in the US after Democrats in Congress basically forced them into failure (CRA for the finance industry, overweening union and governmental regs for the autos).
And of course, Europeanizing our healthcare – which a majority of Americans are against (I thought we had a representative democracy, no?), is the largest step EVER towards holding back America’s individual might – the same might that keeps freeing the world… from European totalitarianism.
Why? Because Europeans cannot compete with America culturally, economically or in freedom and liberty… and they HATE IT.
Why do you think they formed the EU?
And what’s the future of the EU? Well, according to a leading journal of conservatism in Brussels,
“Former Soviet dissident Vladimir Bukovksy has warned that the European Union is on its way to becoming another Soviet Union. When people who have worked on higher levels in the EU system note similarities as well, it is time people start taking this idea seriously.”
Look – Europeans are totalitarians. They can’t seem to get it out of their blood.
Totalitarians have to be in-charge. If they can’t get there on their own, they attack and destroy those opposing them and place themselves in-charge by destroying those better than they – in this instance, Americans. (Why do you think Europeans support Palestinians over Israelis?)
After centuries of inter-European warfare from 1648 (Treaty of Westphalia; recognized as the beginning of the “Nation-state”) to 1945 (end of WW2, beginning of NATO, Warsaw Pact), Europeans NEVER stopped killing each other. In 1989 the Wall fell… the Warsaw Pact disintegrated… and Europeans immediately began again killing each other.
And the American Left, for indecipherable reasons having a huge chip on its shoulder, can’t wait to be JUST LIKE EUROPE!
Why would ANY SENTIENT BEING WANT TO BE LIKE EUROPE?
Europe gave (past tense) the world lots of things. In fact, finding anything of import in the world today, other than paper and gunpowder, that was invented by non-Europeans, or was invented in a non-European society, is basically impossible. This includes all philosophies of liberty, freedom of the individual (which Democrats HATE, by the way; classical Liberalism is about the freedom of the individual; current “Liberalism” is about constraining the individual to the betterment of the Group), the rule of law .
Europe CREATED civilization and its infrastructure.
Look – in early modern Europe, Europeans first were killing each other over tribal affiliation, and then over religious affiliation. How to fix this? Capitalism.
Here’s Voltaire on visiting the market in the Hague, during a period in which Protestants of various sects constantly were killing one-another across the rest of Europe:
“I watch Calvinist ministers, Arminians, Socinians, rabbis and Anabaptists who talk together quite miraculously, and with every reason… [capitalist] England is the meeting of all religions, as the Royal Exchange is the rendezvous of all foreigners.”
The rise of capitalism was encouraged to end sectarian wars.
The Reformation? Huh?
For those of you in Rio Linda, the Protestant Reformation created the world we have today. Catholics believed that working hard got you nothing in the Afterlife, everything was pre-ordained. Protestants thought that hard work was later rewarded. Hence the “Protestant work ethic.” Protestants peoples are successful and wealthy because they BUST THEIR ASSES.
Or did, until the advent of the Welfare State, first in Europe and now in Leftist America.
If you’ve not noticed, or, if you’ve noticed but not wondered, Northern Europe and North America are
- Run by the Rule of Law
- Capitalists – or were until they gave up, and…
On the other hand, Southern Europe and South America are
- Lazy (e.g siesta, ‘mañana’ )
- Socialists and…
There’s a reason for this and it has nothing to do with race or color or climate.
It has to do with the Reformation. Inarguably the single most important event in Western History and, given the role of the West in the rise of civilization and technology, the most important event in world history.
Not taught about the Reformation in your union school? Big surprise. If Western Civ still were taught, the current Democrat Party could not exist. If Logic were taught in HIgh School, neither Party’s extremists would exist…
And it was driven by CAPITALISM… the desire to work hard and better oneself… not to better others, not to better the standard of living of some slug in a Parisian suburb or Netherlands drug park or Bed-Sty or Watts.
European religious wars … were stopped by CAPITALISM.
But Europeans have turned their backs on all of those events – the Renaissance, the Reformation, the Enlightenment, and in their dumbest idea yet… they have turned their backs on capitalism….
And now we have new – and bloody – religious rivalries in Europe… Another Big Surprise for public schoolers!
As Europeans turned their backs on capitalism (due to their killing off themselves, their future generations, their cities and industries in a drive to…. CONTROL THE WORLD!… and the stupor-inducing willingness of American taxpayers foolishly using their capitalism-derived wealth first to free Europeans from themselves (again) and then to rebuild themselves, and then to sustain themselves against the tyranny of the socialist USSR,) to return to the same pre-Enlightenment, pre-Reformation, pre-capitalist mindset of tribal wars (Kosovo), Europe became anti-capitalist.
And now their standard-of-living is about 1/3 of ours. Surprise!
And now, because they cannot keep-up with the capitalists – or, in other words, with the smart people who wanted to get ahead and so moved to America – they want to hold us back.
And the American Left – not having any kids and so no stake in the future – thinks this is OK.
Oh, yeah, American Leftists, like their European cousins, hate capitalism, too – the MAJOR historical force for peace, prosperity and progress in the history of the world…. and Democrats hate it.
It’s almost as though Democrats are drawn, as is a moth to a flame, to economic models that will ensure their pessimistic view of the future.
Democrats think the future will be horrible – and through their insistence on unionized education, confiscatory taxation, the rejection of capitalism… are doing everything they can to ensure that poor, dark future.
If that’s not stupid, I’m not sure what is.
And if allowing them to do this – or following them off the civilizational cliff isn’t even MORE stupid, then NOTHING is!
Do we REALLY want to become a culture of tribal faction and aggression? (You know, like the Democrat-led group-based, anti-individual (i.e. illiberal) ‘victocrat’ campaigns of our elite schools?)
For that is what history shows us is the result of rejecting capitalism.
Do we REALLY want to return to the Dark Ages? For what is the result of not teaching voters, citizens, (“subjects” in Europe) – about history, technology, and government and economic models that result in progress?
Do we REALLY want to continue down this road of anti-wealth and anti-progress and anti-Enlightenment the Left is dragging us down?
Capitalism ended religious wars in the West…. So we want to reject it in the midst of the toughest religious-based war in our history? A war that will decide the liberty and freedoms of our thoughts – and our kids?
We know the Left’s answer: they don’t have kids… so really don’t care. A huge portion of the Democrat voting franchise doesn’t work… so doesn’t care….
The conscious decision to change cultures by not requiring or even supporting acculturation and assimilation, by accepting the law formation of the pre-Enlightenment, pre-Reformation, anti-capitalism culture of Islam through the implementation and acceptance in various European countries of Sharia, the decision by Europeans to have no children (signaling no acceptance or understanding that man has been better because of Europeans and the civilization they created, so are OK with that civilization devolving into Islamist barbarity), to not experience any future of their civilization or culture whatsoever and instead turning over their soporific cultures and governments to barbarians who stone girls for getting educated, stone women for being raped, cut the heads off of those disagreeing with them and rioting over CARTOONS in a complete and total rejection of accurate history, free thought, speech and association… is INSANE to thinking people who believe in the future.
These are the things Europe has lately given the world. And now, with their American Left counterparts.. demand that we acquiesce to, as well.
(Pop Quiz: You know what you get when you mix nationalism, socialism and trade-unionism.. and politics? The National Socialist Workers Party. Do you know the German name is for that? “Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei” … NAZI (Yes, those on the Left accusing the Right of being NAZIs were educated in public schools…)
Do you know the American name for this? “Liberal Democrats.”
Think about this a moment.
- Trade unions? Card Check? Democrats?
- Socialism? Democrats?
- Workers party? Democrats?
Then think about THIS: “Those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it.” – George Santayana
And now 52% of America, plus clowns like Michael Moore who got rich off of capitalism, are begging to be just like this dead continent and culture – can’t wait to move to the same anti-capitalistic, anti-progress, anti-children, anti-individual responsibility and anti-individual success & responsibility culture of the utterly failed demi-Continent of Europe.
Sane people – which seems on the Left to include ONLY Lieberman – wonder, ‘Why?’
Or they would if they hadn’t been mal-educated by Democrat unions in the classroom for 40 years.
Are we going to take this lying down? Are we going to have the future of America – our kids’ futures – crushed by these neo-European anti-American totalitarians… without a fight?
