My grandpa loathed Woodrow Wilson. He had good reason to.
We can learn a lot about what made President Wilson tick by examining his favorite novel, the 1911 literary gem by Edward M. House, Philip Dru: Administrator: A Story of Tomorrow, 1920-1935. In fact, he liked House so much, he made him his top advisor on foreign affairs.
So what’s this colon-rich masterpiece about? It’s about this guy who stages an armed coup and makes himself dictator of the United States–for the country’s own good, of course. Rescues it from the bad guys. And then applies Science, glorious Science, to “cure bad thoughts” and make it, like, impossible for people to be bad anymore. Science, applied by Really Smart leaders with absolute power over our lives, is our salvation. Later on he conquers Mexico and rewrites their Constitution, too. And once they see how great it all turns out, everybody’s really happy.
Now do you see why I call leftid ideology stale, archaic, old hat, trite, cliche-ridden, done to death, moldy, obsolete, and antiquated? Wilson is one of those few old-time Democrats who’d fit right in today. In fact, he’d be indistinguishable from a modern-day globalist leftid. And we can’t say much for his taste in literature, either.
We can’t we get rid of these hoary, cobwebby old statist platitudes?
Because leftism is fruit produced by Original Sin. Only Jesus Christ can root it out.
And someday He will.
