Goodbye, Adulthood

A liberal once said to me that socialism is good and necessary because “the government will take better care of you.” So much for adulthood.

God gave us families, the Church, voluntary associations, friends, and our own two hands and our own brains to take care of us. We don’t want The Government to take care of us. We are not infants. If they feed you, clothe you, and put a roof over your head, they can certainly tell you what to do and what to think and punish you if you don’t.

Yeahbut, yeahbut! If it saves one life…. Honk if you’ve heard that one before.

If it saves one life, Walter Williams said recently, then the government should reduce the speed limit to 5 mph. That would save thousands of lives! Unless it drove people to murder or suicide.

Let’s all wear face masks all the time! if it saves one life. Let’s ban all products that could possibly harm you–if it saves one life. Let’s put the government in charge of making all the people happy! Which will only make them all miserable; but if it saves one life, we’ve gotta do it.

Yeahbut! The Democrats will give us free stuff! All kinds of free stuff!

Is this not shameful? Do you want to be a baby or a toddler all your life? Aren’t you ashamed for living off the work of other people? It’s theft if you do it with a Saturday night special. If the government does it with an army that’ll kill anyone who resists, it’s just “fair redistribution.”

Grow up, America.

  1. The “If it saves one life” mentality long ago came from the “If it saves one bruise” mentality that prevents a kid from learning not to do it again when he does get a minor bruise, or falls down because he was careless, and both took away a child’s joy of free play. Playground slides went from long, metal ones that gave a kid the exhilaration of sliding down a good distance, to short plastic stop and goes. Children can’t ride their bikes without suiting up like the Terminator that removes the pleasure of using their arms and legs to peddle with the wind in their face. No more sandboxes to express their creativity. No more childhood while the left continues to relive their own.

    1. Would you believe there’s a whole subculture out there, of adults who wish to be treated as babies–diapers and all? Yeesh!

  2. Hi! “…adults who wish to be treated as babies–diapers and all” Yes, and as you probably know by now, 2/21/22, Biden just appointed Sam Brinton, an extreme fetish, to serve as deputy assistant secretary of spent fuel and waste disposition in the Office of Nuclear Energy – “Biden Unleashes Dog-Role-Playing Fetishist On Key Nuclear Post” frontpagemag. Since Biden’s insurrection, America’s become worse than Sodom & Gomorrah. Only it isn’t salt – it’s political excrement.

    1. I missed you all too. Been skipping a lot of days off the internet. Too many new issues popping up every day. Also, my internet provider switches back and forth to and from 5G, so I don’t stay on for more than 2 hours at a time. Unfortunately, despite reducing my email backlog, as you so wisely suggested, I’m up to over 2,000 unread emails again. Anyway, with most people, including the right this time, wearing masks in my city, I’m healthier than I’ve ever been – no colds this year – lol. Hope you and family are well. Thank you for accepting me back, Lee. PS: Facebook regularly deletes my “shares” and suspends me for a few days, even when I merely share an article without commenting on it. Twitter merely continues to shadow ban me. Censorship is taking its toll. Also, FB did something strange recently. It banned my post but sent me an article in an attempt to let me know why that included a statement from a Fauci physician in hopes it would refute the article I share and to justify calling it “misinformation.” However, after reading the article, I was more convinced than ever that truth is fast becoming a crime. Sorry for this long post. I promise to keep them shorter next time. I think I may be suffering from “censorship” stress disorder – lol.

    2. Very, very oddly, it’s been almost a year since I’ve been censored by FB. Maybe leading off the posts with pictures of happy puppies really works.
