We fought one Cold War against communism. If you don’t get that another Cold War between Liberty and communism is happening again between our own citizens, and is far more likely to turn hot, it’s time to wake the hell up.
Our proxy wars are not in Vietnam, Korea, Grenada – they are in Berkeley, San Jose, Colorado State, Dartmouth. At polling places, PTA meetings, City Councils.
The GOPe thinks this is a disagreement in how to reach common goals.
There ARE no common goals. Every piece of blather about “we’re all in this together,” or, “we all are Americans,” […]
It occurs to ask: What was Hillary, what was obama, really up to by spying on Trump?
Weaponizing our government against our citizens was a strategy – not a tactic. It was years in the making. It was F&F, IRS, DHS…
All these people in mid-2016 KNEW she had it in the bag. Was she, with the help of obama, just laying the groundwork for a true police state after her coronation?
I doubt these people, obama holdovers, were seriously concerned about keeping their jobs under his heir. The idea they were “auditioning” for Hillary seems naive.
Was she just […]
The law and the morality of a society are what the citizens/subjects are willing to put up with. It’s might makes right, regardless of what one may think or believe.
The might of Christianity and of Western Civilization has made our – unique – view of morality, human rights, etc., the dominant one, and therefore “right,” but it is foolish think this would have been the case had Christianity and the West not become the mightiest of civilizations.
It is equally foolish to think our rights exist for any reason other than our willingness to destroy any enemy attacking them. […]
This is an excellent column; long but worth the read.
To (grossly; IMO) summarize: Entropy is affecting and will continue to affect the Country Class, while the Ruling Class will continue to centralize order at the expense of our Liberty.
The dichotomy of the Country Class (my summary, not that of the columnist) seems to be that “leave me alone” is not an organizing principle, but if we don’t organize, we’ll never be left alone. In fact, we’ll continue to be subject to more and more progressive “order” and concomitant lack of liberty – until we have none.
People need to grasp that the establishment of both political sides hates the Middle Class. The rise of Islamism in the West is an existential threat to the Middle Class, as is unchecked illegal immigration to America’s Middle Class.
The est wants to rule, they want it THEIR way. The poor vote for whomever promises the most redistribution from the Middle Class (where the money is simply because of its size). The rich vote whatever level of government they want. The poor don’t care about liberty or freedom – they can’t afford it. The rich have it – in spades […]
