Can you even begin to imagine the mischief, the horror, that would ensue if human nature really were infinitely capable of being purposely shaped and molded by whoever was in power? And vain attempts to do it don’t turn out so well, either.
Our country’s founders knew that. Voices crying in the wilderness…
Woo-hoo, that’s old-fashioned! Imagine–limiting the power of government! How the dickens are they supposed to create utopia if we tie their hands behind them? Really, who knows better what you should be eating, day to day–you, or some faceless bureaucrat hooked up to an algorithm? Can we get modern here?
When can we stop wearing the stupid face masks? When the Chinese Communist Doomsday Virus pandemic is over? And when would that be?
Oh, but Far Left Crazy has a great idea! Wear the face masks forever! For the rest of your life! ‘Cause even if COVID-19 goes away (which it won’t!), there’s always gonna be one or two other diseases out there that all-wise, all-powerful Government MUST prevent from making people sick!
It’s ideology, stupid. It goes like this. A. There is no God. B. That’s no problem, because the state can do everything God would do, or should do, if He really existed. Just think of Sammy Davis Jr. singing “The government can!” C. The more power Government gets, and the bigger it grows, the more it can do for us. D. If we keep on feeding it and growing it, the state will eventually be God (or good as) and nothing bad will ever be allowed to happen to anyone ever again.
But, see, for all that wonderful stuff to happen, the state has to control people’s behavior–at least until Science can find a way to control people’s thoughts as well.
This is Satanic ideology. A seduction brewed up in Hell. The devil’s rather proud of it: with it he’s ensnared whole nations.
President-for-Life Dr. General Venerated Sage Ho Lee Kow said his new policy of “removing” anyone suspected of being infected with the virus “worked like a charm.”
“We don’t need to tell people to stay inside their homes,” he said. “They know their neighbors are just waiting to call us the moment they see anyone step outside. So they just naturally stay indoors!
“Socialist violence is really the gentlest form of behavior modification,” he added. “As of this moment, our glorious country has no whatchamacallit virus. I repeat: none!”
East Shinola law requires that anyone who contradicts the president be “re-educated” at an undisclosed location. Most of them are never seen again.
“We are waiting to buy cell phones from China so we can check on everybody, moment to moment, and know where they are and what they are doing,” the president said. “We have learned that the more control you have over people, the happier they are. Without an all-powerful government, they just get in trouble. Everything we do is for their own good.”
Does he put his thumb in the soup? Good thing he’s not real…
All other things being equal, would you rather eat in a restaurant where the waiters and waitresses were neat, friendly, and attentive, or one in which the staff was slow, slovenly, inattentive, and got your order wrong, half the time? We don’t have to spend a lot of time on the answer, do we?
But the state of Virginia is debating a new law to add “hairstyle” to the protected categories covered by the Virginia “Human Rights Act” (https://wtvr.com/2020/01/29/racial-discrimination-hair/). Supposedly their chief concern is to protect “African-Americans’ traditional hairstyles.”
Question! How do they know an applicant wasn’t hired because of his or her hair flying around all over the place? Like, maybe the interviewer didn’t like the applicant’s attitude, state of personal hygiene, or some other detail that suggested that this person probably wouldn’t be a good employee? I mean, who’s actually going to tell the “human rights” wallahs, “I didn’t hire so-and-so because I don’t like his hair”?
Meanwhile, America’s colleges and looniversities habitually–and flagrantly–don’t hire conservatives. Studies indicate that libs outnumber conservatives 12-1 as professors and instructors. That’s okay? No discrimination there?
Do these people recognize any limitation at all to the scope of government? (Hint: No.) Have they nothing better to do than protect assorted hairstyles? (Hint: Probably not.)
At what point does government stop growing? I really do wonder.
By now everyone but the most wooden-headed Democrats know that “Man-Made Climate Change” is a big fat crock whose only purpose is to serve as an excuse to grow the government–which has already metastasized well beyond what it should be. It’s their ticket to ride–to install socialism, communism, or any other ism which hands them the keys to the jailhouse.
It’s getting so I automatically disagree with demonstrators the moment I see them. I’m that tired of it.
Not that any politicians were paying attention, but in Chicago this past weekend, seven people were shot to death. And this in a city famous for its multitude of gun control laws. Amazingly, criminals break laws.
New York Post columnist Michael Goodwin brought up a startling fact yesterday, in a guest spot on Mark Simone’s WOR radio show.
If not for the bizarre case of two rogue police detectives who hired themselves out to the mob as hit men (https://themobmuseum.org/blog/mob-cops-saga-still-reverberates-10-years-after-their-life-sentences/), Goodwin said, there would have been no murders in New York City committed with legally-possessed firearms. There are, of course, hundreds of murders done in New York City; but in recent memory, except for the eight people wacked by the cops turned mob assassins, none of those murders was done with a gun in legal possession of its user.
New York City has pretty strict gun laws, too, come to think of it. For some reason gang members and professional criminals simply pay no attention to them. Somehow they always get guns.
Disarming the law-abiding population, taking away their means of self-defense, is a left-wing project, part of liberals’ scheme to grow the government. They can’t turn us into Venezuela if we’re armed.
And no, they absolutely don’t care how many people get gunned down in Chicago or Baltimore or any other Democrat urban paradise. That’s just life in a sanctuary city.
