Rushdoony on Socialism

Dead, but still a threat to freedom

R.J. Rushdoony’s essay on “Socialism as a Perpetual Civil War” was published as a Chalcedon blog post in 2009. Actually it was written quite a few years before that: but its insights are right on target today.

Rushdoony points out that socialism has its own “infallibility concept” which explains away its multitudinous and incessant failure. It destroys wealth and inhibits wealth’s creation. When anything goes wrong, it finds a scapegoat. When an epidemic struck Red China in 1967, the government threatened to purge the doctors who had “ignored Mao’s health policies”–as if medical doctors knew less about health than some crazy old mass murderer.

It’s looking more and more like we’re headed for a showdown between Christ’s Kingdom and humanist man’s impoverished socialist pipe dream.

And that’s a fight we’d better win.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, confronted by a fact

The continuing self-satire that is Far Left Crazy Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has left us with a quote that will be enshrined forever in the hall of idiocy.

Facts don’t matter, Cortez said in a 60 Minutes interview earlier this month–as long as you’re “morally right” (https://hotair.com/archives/2019/01/07/aoc-facts-dont-matter-youre-morally-right/). The exact wording:

“I think there’s [sic] a lot of people more concerned about being precisely, factually, and semantically correct than being morally right.”

Facts are hate speech, anyway. They get in the way of liberalism. Away with facts! We don’t need no stinkin’ facts! Not if we’re morally right.

And how do we know we’re morally right, if we have no facts at our disposal?

“Shut up!” he explained. Libs are always right!

That a civilized country of more than 300 million people would ever consent to be governed by the likes of this–

Words fail me.
