Only the most arrogant of fools think that American socialists are somehow so much more virtuous than their non-American counterparts. Collectivism has always failed, and it always WILL fail, whether you try it here, there, or on a deserted island paradise with all your collectivist friends. It never works, not even in America. Of course, that might be why none of those calling for American socialism are ever willing to move to Venezuela or North Korea.
The sooner the Left can understand and accept that, the better off the world will be.
There can be no reasoning with those who choose violence over persuasion; compromise requires that we give up something of value in exchange for something you have to offer that we value more. The only thing you could offer us in exchange for our silent, obedient consent is peace –a peace you will always threaten to shatter the moment it is politically convenient for you. And peace is something we have a right to take for ourselves, forcibly if we must, and without compromise.
After all, it’s our God-given right to be left the hell alone.
The fable of the boiling frog described how a frog can be boiled alive as long as the water is heated very slowly. Raise the temperature too fast, and the frog will recognize it is in danger and leap out of the pot to safety! This metaphor is often used to demonstrate how incremental threats are often tolerated until it is too late.
This is the case of liberty.
There will always be tension. There will always be conflict. We will never agree on everything 100%. But let us agree on certain fundamentals: Natural Rights and Natural Law, the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. Let these be the foundation of the American Nation, our North star, our guiding light, the Cause to which we, like our forefathers before us, “mutually pledge…our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.”
Because a house built on anything else, will not stand the storm.
We destroy the possibility to ascertain good policy when we are trapped in the idea that our two options are totalitarianism and anarchy, and that any concession to market or government is a betrayal and hypocrisy to either. Socialism is not capitalism. Capitalism is not anarchy.
At the end of the day freedom is the best health plan. Not government.
Slavery still exists today. It takes many forms, but make no mistake, even though we aren’t locked in a cell we are certainly prisoners to an extent. Perhaps our freedom begins when we have the courage to challenge the narratives we’re fed about what is “necessary” and “good for our society” and choose to determine those things for ourselves. Not because some old guy in a suit said so.
