The lies that leftids tell the public–and themselves–are like the sands of the shore for multitude. But three towering, thumping, colossal whoppers stand out from the rest.
*Government can make people good. It seems incredible that anyone could still believe this, after thousands of years’ worth of proof that it’s not true. But they do, they do. Education, propaganda, regulations and restrictions, and simple brute force–if one way doesn’t work, just try another. All these methods can be used at once.
God authorizes government to protect us from evildoers. Government authorizes itself to protect us from everything.
*Government can make people equal. Stop laughing, it isn’t funny! How many healthy economies have been wrecked by socialism? See Venezuela.
I suppose a lot of villains in government can succeed in making everybody (everybody but themselves, of course) poor. But I don’t think that counts.
*Government can make everybody healthy. We’ve been seeing this play out in spades, these past two years. Yowsah, yowsah, no more disease! Science promises!
Behind these three stands an even bigger lie which seldom gets mentioned–maybe because it’s too preposterous even for globalists to be caught saying. But they think it all the same: Government can make people happy. Government accomplishes this by making other people sad.
Shakespeare understood this. In Julius Caesar (Act 2, Scene 1), Brutus rationalizes the murder of Caesar as “A piece of work that will make sick men whole.” To which Ligarius replies, “But are not some whole that we must make sick?” Bullseye.
Nothing’s changed since Shakespeare wrote that line.
