My mystification grows along with the absurdity of leftism. My life has its own level of absurdism which is fairly high. While I do recognize and attempt to justify it, I do also recognize the sandy, slipping soil upon which my absurdities are grounded. I don’t imagine a political force being applied to impose my absurdities upon you and yours.
Leftists on the other hand have constructed a fantasy world which although beautifully hopeful, is demonstrably impossible. The chink in the armor of their fairness and equality, is the essential nature of humanity. The universal failure of socialism, even when applied by the most humanitarian of intentions, i.e. religious organizations (Mormons), the founders of our country (Pilgrims), revolutionaries battling against tyranny (Spartacus)… the nature of humanity which includes a fair dose of greed and amplified self-importance throws a wrench into the gears. Beautiful intention evolves into a more self-protective form of tyranny, or oligarchy. Individualism, including freedom and exercising personally recognized and enforced responsibility, evaporates into the atmosphere of statist control.
It was a recognition of this infectious nature of government which inspired political philosophers all the way back to Socrates who saw democracy (the goal of so many modern politics) as the politic of mediocrity that it actually is. Demonstrably so… The irony of enforcing responsibility while defending individual freedom was the goal for which the U.S. Constitution was forged to inspire and protect.
“We still suffer from not having a Constitution that guarantees its citizens economic rights” ~Barack Hussein oBama. The Constitution, he explains, is a “charter of negative liberties. … (it) … says what the states can’t do to you (and) what the Federal government can’t do to you, but doesn’t say what the Federal government or State government must do on your behalf.”
The mystery grows and fantasy evolves…
