If you have always believed that everyone should play by the same rules and be judged by the same standards, that would have gotten you labeled a radical 50 years ago, a liberal 25 years ago and a racist today.

Thomas Sowell, November 28, 1998

  1. It’s always the left against deplorable, ordinary Americans. “Do they really hate ordinary people that much? Yes, they do. For liberals, the distinction between the “dumb masses” and their enlightened selves renders life meaningful. Disdain for ordinary folks is not just an ancillary trait of liberalism. It is fundamental to the its nature.” Jeffrey Folks at “The American Thinker.”

    Furthermore, it’s not only socialism. The US government has failed in almost everything. Yet, it has attained huge, overreaching powers precisely because of its massive, past failures.

  2. For the most part, they don’t have any arguments anymore that they’re willing and able to offer to general audiences. The thing is, there are large swaths of the bourgeoisie in this country who are driven to build patron-client relationships and driven to attack and belittle the mundane accomplishments of people dissimilar to them. Blacks who don’t land on the patronage roll don’t benefit from the ministrations of these characters, but helping people was never the point. ‘Helping’ them was. Again, Sowell: self-congratulation has been the driver of social policy in this country.

  3. The JOY of giving is lost in the mele of social programs. The practice of the virtue of charity is obliterated. The gratitude in receiving is lost. Loving thy neighbor cannot be found in the extortion of tax money for programs to speed the spiral down to contempt and outright hatred because the clients know, or at least ought to know and care that they are being manipulated.
    Added to that is the fact that social experimentation has been inserted into what ought to be a system to protect Life and limb. Transgendering is not cost effective, unproved and limbs are really lost.
