The Murderous Idiocy of Leftist Culture

 

Liberalism and Conservatism can only survive in Western Democratic institutions and in no other. Western Democratic governments are the sole incubators where sheer idiocy is tolerated by the masses. Still, these are the exact institutions attacked, demonized and condemned by Leftist culture while it idolized the Castros in Cuba, Hugo Chaves in Venezuela, the Communists of the Soviet Union, Pol Pot in Cambodia and every other failed dictatorial regime in the world. When one points to the utter failure brought on by all of these regimes, the answer is always the same, well; we would do it better and have the resources such that it will not fail. May we translate this for the rest of you who find this explanation at all appealing and potentially accurate? They mean to say that the Western World, due to its advanced economic models, freedom, private ownership of land and representative governance has grown economically where there would be no point at which we would fail like the others before we would die. This is why Hugo Chavez is their ultimate hero, he died before all the money in Venezuela ran out and his successor, Maduro, was the one left holding the empty bag a few short years later.

 

They have another argument which resonates well. This argument is that the democratic capitalist governance has failed even in the United States due to government debt which proves it is an unsuccessful form of rule and that it needs to die. This is also another deceit, as this debt only became such a hindrance to the point of challenging the government’s survival due to excessive socialist government programs. The United States began well in debt but free of all the socialist and centralized programs and Andrew Jackson as President paid off the debt in full, that is correct, in full. From his Presidency onwards debt was built back up and was still quite manageable until President George W. Bush nearly doubled the size during his eight years and then, not to be outdone, President Barak Hussein Obama almost doubled it again during his eight years which brought the debt from a paltry five-trillion before these two were elected to almost twenty-trillion today and even far higher when the future demands of unfunded liabilities are figured in. The hockey stick Al Gore drew for the temperatures of the earth for climate change is far more accurate a description of the national debt in the United States (see below). The problem since 2004 has been that the political choice became as corrupt as conceivable.

 

United Stated Debt from 1790 through 2015

 

Here, let us explain briefly and succinctly. The mainstream Republican Party has deserted their base supporters. They have joined the vote-buying Democrat and all but drank the leftist Kool-Aid. They are even incapable of revoking Obamacare, something they had done regularly when they knew President Obama would veto their efforts. Now there is a President who would sign onto simple repeal of Obamacare and then hunting down the remaining fragments, which were buried in other legislation such as omnibus finance bills. But that would soon require that the Congress work to repair parts of the health insurance business and also find a means of permitting those items that have near universal support such as no penalty for pre-existing conditions and likely a dozen other allowances, which people believe, are fair and necessary. The thing which need be permitted is the sharing of these additional costs across the entire share of insured individuals. There is one item which will be thrown at the public, which President Trump should include as a major part of a prime-time broadcast. The statistic which will be throw up ad-nauseum will be the twenty million or two-hundred-thousand, depending on the person making the accusation, need be dispelled with the reality that the mass number of these will be people who choose not to have health coverage. Here is a surprise for most Americans; the Federal Government has extremely limited conditions for when they can make people do something. They can require you have a draft card, a Social Security number, but they cannot force you to buy insurance, that is left for the States to demand, if they so choose. If, by some stroke of magic, a President managed, with a great amount of Supreme Court assistance, could force the government back within the limitations of the Constitution, then our taxes would soon all but disappear. Imagine that if you can. Afterwards, the national debt could be paid off within a couple of decades, even at its current exorbitant amount. The left would consider this a wasting of funds which could be better used for the general good.

 

A true leftist nation, they can be found across Europe, taxes their population within a few minimal percentage points and then grants each citizen, according to some chart or table resembling an alchemist’s formula and procedure for taking quarts and making it into diamonds or the paltry lead into gold, a dole for housing, transportation, food, energy consumption, petrol, entertainment and other considered necessities and additional pleasantries. The people in most of these nations also have universal healthcare and very good public transportation systems. There is one item these nations have decided they no longer require, a military with the ability to do more than put on a parade. No wonder they are en-mass surrendering to the Islamic hordes flooding over their borders. It is in some way strange though understandable that the nations resisting this invasion; Poland, Slovakia, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Hungary, Austria, Macedonia, Croatia, Serbia and Slovenia with Britain and the United States; the former almost all coming from the Eastern Bloc or Communist Warsaw Pact nations who have returned to religions which had been banned and are holding to the Judeo-Christian ethics, the same ethics which the rest of Europe has decided is useless in their new leftist utopias. The former Soviet satellite nations have lived and seen the depravations, which come from surrender to the leftist culture and the loss of having a Supreme Deity in which to place ones faith and follow their guidelines in ethics and human interactions. These people realize the loss when your deity is stolen, the truth that many Jews have known throughout their history as the first item on all their invaders, with the exception of Cyrus the Great of Persia, forced from their public interaction was Hashem and Torah. These Christians, largely from the Orthodox Churches, also have known the ordeal of having their grounding pulled from under them by removing their church, their priests, and their individual traditions and religious guidelines. Now they are permitted to return and rebuild their faiths.

 

Their experience was with Communism and its depravations and the slow and inevitably increasing death spiral the leftist ideology leads to in a society. The idea was that everybody deserves a certain minimal expectancy, which must be provided whether they bother to contribute to society or simply live from the efforts of others. This is from the basic view, which was summed by the quote popularized by Karl Marx in his writing Critique of the Gotha program, published in 1875, “To each according to his needs from each according to his ability.” This leads to people with lengthy and full expectations while finding that they have virtually no ability to produce within the system. People will tend to work in a half-hearted nature while expecting to live like a monarch. Of course, they end up not living like royalty and eventually are forced into a job for which they may not be suited but any production from them is better to none. Productivity dies and so will the economy and the eventuality came towards the end of the 1980’s as the Soviet Union attempted to keep abreast of the United States spending on their SDI program (Strategic Defense Initiative) which the United States easily spent billions of dollars and the Soviet Union collapsed financially and politically and soon behind them the entirety of the Warsaw Pact nations declared their independence and removed their communist rulers with varying levels of violence. The more violent the ruler’s practices the more violent their removal with Nicolae Ceaușescu of Romania being one of the last to be deposed and probably the one who met with the greatest violence against him and his elite security personnel. That was the fall of one great leftist enterprise that fell under its own weight.

 

Leftists care little for the history of their ideas. They have an answer for every last one of their failed programs, they just required more funding and then they would have worked. The War on Poverty has been waged with ever increasing funding and additional programs since the mid to late 1960’s when President Lyndon Baines Johnson first implemented these programs that formed the base. These base programs continue to these days and have been implemented upon near endlessly with ever more funding for the base and every one of the numerous and expanding complimentary programs. These programs and the leaching of funds from the treasury sapped the ability of the Federal Government to actually fund those things that are necessary without adding to the debt. Eventually this stretched funding to the breaking point where the entire underpinning of Western Civilization was threatened. In Europe, this went completely beyond the point of no return and necessary programs such as defense and repair of roadwork and bridges fell by the wayside. This led to what David Brooks wrote in the New York Times, where he stated, “starting decades ago, many people, especially in the universities, lost faith in the narrative of Western civilization. They stopped teaching it, and the great cultural transmission belt broke. Now many students, if they encounter it, are taught that Western civilization is a history of oppression.” This was further placed into doubt when we see what happened after Donald Trump, while in Poland, called to defend “Western civilization.” The entire liberal spectrum of media, intellectuals and journalists labelled Trump’s speech an example of “alt right” thinking. The reasoning for why this was so was based upon his calling for a return to families with children and for returning to faith in the Creator and faith, which underpinned the driving force of Western Civilization.

 

The main reason that the leftists are so troubled with the Presidency of Donald Trump has nothing to do with Donald Trump and everything to do with Hillary Clinton and her not receiving the gift which was presumed to be promised her. Further, she was to carry on the leftist dream and bringing the end of Western Civilization through the importing of a contrary and regressive belief system. They believed that Hillary Clinton would allow the influx of an uncontrolled number of “refugees” from Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Yemen and numerous other MENA (Middle East and North Africa) placing them around the nation eventually causing strains on the fabric of the nation. The aim of the leftists was the murder of Western Civilization and culture even if it meant the death of the United States. The leftists will honestly tell you that the Constitution and the Bill of Rights along with the Declaration of Independence are no longer applicable and are simply some old pieces of parchment with no relative application in our modern world. By the way, the Bible is also considered guilty of being too old a document to be useful in their world. One can only wonder how they would feel about the Quran because the Europeans, if they continue on their current programs, they will become very familiar with the Quran as their new rulers take control by force, place dictatorial leaders over their societies, end elections and they all, including the leftists, Dhimmis. That will wake up the leftists as immediately after they try to tell their new masters that their ideas just do not quite mesh with their ideals of equality of the sexes. That will go over really well in their new Islamic society, well, not quite.

 

The reality is their idea of importing a society, which values a hierarchy and totalitarian control over the population. They probably believe that they can use this other groups’ disdain for Judeo-Christian culture and civilization to rid them of their nemesis, Western Civilization and its Capitalistic, democratic and Judeo-Christian base. This is far from their first attempt to use an alien cultural rival to destroy Western Civilization and everything that comes with it, especially the underpinnings of the United States. The original system, which they believed could supplant the Judeo-Christian ethic, was Fascism, to be more specific, Nazism. World War II destroyed that attempt but there were those such as Charles Lindbergh and numerous other American icons who thought that the ideals of Fascism as practiced by Mussolini and Hitler were the future which could save America. It did not take long, after World War II the next great hope was Soviet Russia and Communism. Walter Cronkite was a Communist sympathizer possibly in the employ of the Soviets, though this news did not come until he was residing in international waters on his yacht, then he made his great admittance. Communism was the next great idea to replace Capitalist Western civilization. They tied their hopes on the greatness and power of Russia, the Soviet Union, the eight-hundred pound gorilla in the room. They took their time but they failed. The main thing is that anything is considered superior to Western Civilization and all that it contains. The main thing is, everything you think you understand is considered inconsequential to every leftist. Leftists have a priority, an order of what is good and what must be erased. Christianity is considered a danger and need be opposed but Judaism is the source of everything the left abhors. The left has the thinking down and will gladly inform you as to how off the correct line of all that is reasonable is defined. For the leftist, War is Obsolete, Peace through Surrender, Cultural Suicide, Adoption of all Others, Up is Down and Down is Sideways and All is Lost, and Finality is Beginning. Of course, all of this means Israel must become the anathema of everything the Leftists believe and thus deserves to die. The sheer existence of Israel is proof of the Creator and the left cannot allow such belief. Christianity is a difficult enough belief to deconstruct but Judaism is impossible to deconstruct because almost every Jew appears to have a basic internal programming, which cannot be challenged or changed. That is the basis of the leftist hatred of everything Jewish.

The election this fall is not about Islamic State, al-Qaeda, Taliban, or other security. It will not be about most of the items the media is talking about. What it is about is the economy, jobs, employment, wages, and everything about the economy but not in the obvious ways being discussed. Where will this next Presidency balance? The main item is which way does it benefit the United States most, continuing internationalism or returning to nationalism.

 

The media and most politicians are pushing this global economy, global integration, global cooperation, global solutions while hiding a dirty little secret, they are selling global as the solution while having the United States and the advanced nations pay for everything while equalizing the global playing field, whatever that means. We had a debate last night and we heard more of the same. Clinton claimed more globalism and taxes on the rich and Trump tried and may have meant to sound like Reagan. What they were not telling the people is that Clinton was using the same internationalism where the world matters more than the United States so in order to equalize the world the United States and the advanced world has to bleed to allow the rest of the world to catch up and then all will be well and how wonderful the world can be. Trump is actually claiming that every nation take their own and put them first and attempt to allow the nations who are leading the world to continue to be the leaders and then assist other nations in making gains and follow and give them access to advances as they are able to implement these advances. So, which way will work best. That depends on which nations one decides should be permitted to advance their own interests than to share with the world.

 

Internationalism is wonderful if your country is on the receiving end and not so wonderful if you are being bled to bring the other nations up to their level. The problem with that are many of these nations that are presumably being given advances in order to raise them to the same level are led by dictators who are enriching themselves and not making their nations any closer to the advanced world as that does not directly benefit them. What these dictators are not being intelligent about is that had they advanced their nation they would have enriched themselves in the process. They are not even thinking nationally rather than internationally. Internationally is a recipe for disaster as it inhibits the leaders from leading and demands that the least efficient be granted the largess while the leaders are placed in financial straight-jackets. Internationalists place a stop sign where all nations must park their own business and park their nation by the side of the highway and wait for the rest of the world to reach an equal position. The problem is that many of these nations, which they are waiting for to reach the same point, are themselves broken and not gaining and will never catch up as they are not even making any effort to reach the next level. Internationalism believes that making all nations equal will solve the world’s problems and inequalities, despite it not ever bringing the rest of the nations to first world status.

Nationalism is the opposite view which allows each nation to advance at their own rate and still demands that the first world assist the developing nation but does not demand they try to make equal those nations so dysfunctional that they are the closest thing to an economic black hole as can be found. Nationalism rewards each nation for their efforts and allows each nation to gain at their own speed. Allowing the leaders to lead gives other nations a target and proven path they can emulate but without national gain by the wealthiest nations to blaze the trail for the others to follow. The basis for nationalism is it allows each nation to set their own monetary policies and is against unifying monetary policies as such a system is flawed and destroys the lesser productive nations which has been proven by the European Union Euro which has benefited Germany while leaving Greece behind. Nationalism allows each country to do the best for their own people and society. That does not mean that nations which are developing should not be aided and it is in the interest of the most advanced nations to assist those nations who are developing and making the right choices and allowing them to benefit from the experiences of those nations who have traveled those roads before them. But those nations which are completely dysfunctional cannot be assisted as long as their governance is broken and until the nation decides to change their dysfunctions there is no reason to throw good money after bad.

 

Internationalism is a wonderful, feel-good policy filled of kind words and low on actual results. Internationalism demands that all nations be made to give according to their ability and the funds are granted to countries according to their needs. Internationalism demands open borders allowing free immigration with no limits or criminal and other background checks or other limits or restrictions. The policies sound as if they will allow all nations equal opportunities in word while defining this policy as bringing all nations up to the same level and making things fair for all nations. The truth is that this is accomplished by tearing down the greater nations while benefitting some of the least deserving nations who are corrupt criminal enterprises more than they are actual functional nations. Rewarding the worst while impeding the best prevents progress and will constantly restrict progress and the discoveries of new technologies and new systems which would result in assisting those nations seeking a better future to implement the proven methods. To get an idea on the difficulties caused by internationalism there is a perfect example which we can observe, the European Union. How has that equal currency been working for over half of Europe who are not Germany or Britain but are Greece, Spain, Italy and even France and many of the former Warsaw Nations. The common currency has taken the small differences of economic production where the agrarian economies which work on a different production level having to survive with the same policies of the industrial and other highly developed nations.

Permitting each nation to perform at their highest level and to their full potential will set target paths for other nation to follow along the proven road set by the highest performing nations. Progress is the fuel that raises all nations in turn. Progress provides the test paths and allows developing nations to benefit from their more advanced nations but only when they decide to advance. No nation could be forced to grow their economy and advance their national infrastructure and when a nation refuses to advance itself then forcing the rest of the world to wait for such a nation to reach an equative level is ridiculous and counterproductive. Internationalism is wonderful idea if it could function as promised. Nationalism is the dirty sounding word which is accused of being selfish because it benefits the wealthy nations and prevents developing nations from ever reaching the top level. The obvious fault is that accusation is completely false. If nationalism prevented up and coming nations from ever becoming the top nations were true then China would have ruled the world, Spain would be a leading nation, Greece would be the top nation in Europe, Egypt would be the most advanced nation in construction and engineering, Persia would still control East-West trade routes, Portugal would be a great power with colonies throughout the world, and the Hittites would be the great power in the norther worlds of Europe through to Turkey. Top nations change and have changed throughout the history of the world while nationalism was the rule of the world. Internationalism has caused massive stagnation as the world as a whole is not permitted to advance because the leading nations are held back presumably for the benefit of the lesser nations. This will always be a supported philosophy as there will always be more developing and undeveloped nations than leading nations as only a few nations will be in the top ten percent, which is why it is referred to as the top ten percent. Internationalism has been working so well over the past twenty to thirty years since 1979 while the rest of history was pathetic and without economic advancement advances by all nations and we are still using salt as a currency, aren’t we? The progress from salt as money to salt as something on almost every dinner table was a result from nationalism, not internationalism.

 

Compare the two with eyes open and the preferable form, open competition or controlled advancement, the choice could provide opportunity or a slow decadence and eventual decimation. Internationalism is welfare on an international scale much in the form of the Soviet Union and the initial Plymouth Rock Colony which would have starved if not for the Native Americans who grew and hunted for surplus for the winter and had sufficient to teach and feed the Pilgrims. After that experience of all get all they need, while most gave nothing in effort, they introduced a new program where each family kept a percentage of what they grew and the remainder was shared, the amounts of food skyrocketed. That is the balance which nationalism can produce, the most advanced achieve at their highest level and those developing nations learn from those leaders and in time some will replace them as they eventually falter. That is the secret of effort based economies, the people or nations at the top changes with time when another makes decisions which make them even more profitable as the other sinks under likely bureaucratic waste. You decide.
