Why do Socialists Hate Capitalism?

(Archive Diving)

So why does the Left, Progressive, Democrat, Liberal Socialist hate Capitalism so very, very, much?  (I don’t like having to use so many terms, but every time we figure out who these people are they change their name.)

They Hate Capitalism because it does not need them.

I’ve written about this is the past. Capitalism is the Default State of Economics. Capitalism appears in the hardest of Communist experiments. Mutually Beneficial Exchange bubbles up under the most horrific regimes.  There is always a War to stop it… but Voluntary Free-Trade cannot be stopped… ever.

This fact, that Free-Trade does not need Socialist guidance, makes them feel small in the Universe. It is a cold illustration of their value… and when you have an Ego that demands your “intelligence” be recognized, this is indeed a painful insult to suffer.

So, the self-proclaimed “Elites” among us have created, perpetuated, clung to, a governing theory that makes them feel good regardless of the historically demonstrable destruction left in it’s wake.

They have ignored, rewritten, re-phrased and changed the meaning of everything to protect the only system that permanently puts them in charge of everybody else.  I will remind you that this mindset is found across party lines… once you understand the definition of Socialism and it’s variants, spotting it is simple and you will no longer be fooled by “Democrat”, “Republican”, etc.

The reason I bring this up is that the election is upon us.  And if you think the Liberals will go quietly into the night you will be gravely disappointed.  There will be a screaming and gnashing of teeth rarely seen.  The Socialists have achieved almost all of what they have been working on for the last 100 years.  They will do anything and everything in order to preserve those gains.  The accusations will be loud, vile and repeated often not just by them but by their friends in the press.  All efforts to return the United States to a path of fiscal solvency and Free-Market principles will be met with claims of destruction, disease and death.  Should they lose their power… They will push, beg, plead, for “Bipartisanship”, “Cooperation” and “Compromise” to hold on to their gains and maintain status quo until they can wrest control of the government again.  And we have seen what happens when they have that control…

This is far from over, so don’t think you can just cast your vote and walk away.  If we are going to be the country the rest of the world looks up to, there will need to be a level of perseverance never before required of the electorate.  You will have to hold those you voted for accountable for the principles they espoused.  You will have to have a solid foundation to repel the arguments flung at you from the Left.  The Liberals will be desperate… and ruthless.  All the while accusing you of being both.

So it’s time for the Capitalists to move Forward!

Roll back the policies of the Past!  Save the Country from Bankruptcy!  Restore Individual Freedom!

We all know Free-Market Capitalism is the wave of the future.  It’s been 100 years… let’s give it a try again.  It will be painful, particularly for those who have built empires on Socialist policies.  It will also hurt the feelings of those who think they know better for you than you do.  But I can live with that.  Let’s bruise some Ego’s.  Even the Leftists will be better off for it.

No Plan “B”

It has become clear to me that the total meltdown we are witnessing after the Trump Victory is due to a simple fact. The Democrat Socialists, in this country and world over, had no plan “B”. The Leftists had believed they had “won” in regard to wresting control of every governing apparatus in every country on Earth. It seemed their march to a One World Socialist Utopia no longer had any real opposition and all that remained was a jockeying for position within the power structure established to rule over it.

Whoops.

Now they are watching helplessly as their tireless drive to imprison us all under a single power is being dismantled.

A Few weeks ago there was an open letter being circulated reportedly from Georges Soros, the Financial Champion of Global Socialism, lamenting this latest turn of events. In that letter he speaks of Karl Popper being a major influence on his world view. That explains a lot.
While Popper is supposedly considered one of the “greatest” 20th century philosophers, I will leave that to you, I don’t share that view for a simple reason. Karl Popper wanted to be everybody’s friend.  He is what we would today call a “Moderate”.

He believed, erroneously, that all the governing theories could be reconciled. In other words, Everybody could be right and we all could get along.  On the face of this assertion it seems nice… to the point of flowery.  However, it does not take a monumental amount of critical thinking to recognize that most of us do not share a sense of ‘fairness’ and ‘congeniality’ with Socialist Dictators and Thugs who have anointed themselves, their associates and family, with brilliance, sometimes even divinity, and view their role as one which is to ‘take care of the unwashed masses’.

On the site where I found the letter, again purportedly from Mr. Soros, a reader commented accurately pointing out the primary flaw in Popper’s idea was his subscription to Plato and what has been called Platonic Paternalism. (The reader then goes off the rails and promotes pure democracy… but at least he was half right.)  This idea of Paternalism implies that we ‘elect’ leaders to take care of us… read that again… Take Care of Us… not just represent us. There is a vast difference in the two positions.  These are profound differences which separate Representative Republics from Democracies. One necessarily requires Unlimited Government in the name of “taking care of the people”, the other requires Limited Government in the name of “Protecting Individual Liberty and Freedom”, thus making these two governing theories irreconcilable or ‘mutually exclusive’.  You can not depend on someone else taking care of you and be “Free” in any meaningful sense of the word.  And, inversely, one cannot be “Free” but not shoulder the responsibility of taking care of themselves, or suffering the consequences of their actions, without the promise by an individual with the power to force others to come to your aid or hold you unaccountable… as eventually it will be you who is forced to provide that aid or look the other way.  (Again, as always, “Force” comes into play when speaking of functional Socialism.)

The letter also illustrated a view shared by all ‘educated’ Socialists. Free Market Capitalism protected by Limited Government which is protected by Transitory Power simply does not exist as a Governing Option.

It’s that simple folks.

You’re insane.

The reason you will never be able to have a cogent conversation about Freedom and Liberty of the Individual protected by a Limited Government (America as it was founded) with a Democrat, and Frankly many of those calling themselves Republicans, is because they don’t see what you believe in as an option. It is not on the spectrum of their chosen reality.  There is no room for it.

This explains some of the massive disconnect when trying to have an argument of ideas. You understand that the Oppression, Death and Destruction which is Socialism is in reality a Governing Theory, and it is available to all who want it. You get it. They, on the other hand, see no other option… none.  Socialism is where it starts and stops, all that remains to fight over is what flavor of it ‘works’ and who’s going to be in charge.

When you hear Fascists and ‘Conservatives’ both being called “Right Wing”, this is why. Socialists do not acknowledge that your idea of Limited Government and Individual Freedom exists… so they have no where else to put you but in the far “Right” side of the Socialist Spectrum where there remains some semblance of private property rights (Fascism). To classify you outside of that spectrum is to admit there is an option other than the Soft Slavery of Socialism. That, to them, cannot be allowed.

There is no question their apple cart is being upended with Brexit, Trump and soon France, Germany, etc. But these are minor set-backs for people like Soros who are lamenting not the failure of their poisoned worldview but the fact they will not see its realization within their limited life span. The war for the Ultimate Minority, the Individual, has not been won. The Socialists have permeated the machine which is government world over. If we the people fail to understand why these ideas are like Oil and Water then the Individual is doomed.

But Wait!

The good news is because of the hubris found on the side of the Socialists there is a pin prick of light peaking in.

They have no plan “B”.

There is no fallback position in place, they have lost momentum.

There is hope…  assuming the Forces of Individual Freedom and Liberty are ideologically united.

Are we?

Will this be the age of The Great Renovation?


It’s Fine to Spy on the Little People…

… just not the People in Power.

The Politicians are ANGRY!

How DARE the NSA Spy on THEM!

But… wait… what?

Are You Little People confused?

Of course you are… or at least, you should be.

Your confusion stems from our wandering so very far away from our Founders intent.

The reason for this confusion is we were founded in such a way where the Individual is always supreme over the Government.  And the Government is not only LIMITED in it’s power, it’s powers are intentionally Separated.  Limit and Conflict were BUILT INTO THE SYSTEM to PROTECT THE INDIVIDUAL.  It’s quite simple really.

Which brings us to the fact that The Newly Found Political Fury over Sweeping Mass Collection of data by Law Enforcement and Intelligence Agencies should be directed at the Intrusion upon, and Violation of, Individual Rights of ALL Citizens… Not Politicians specifically.

Frankly, I have less of an issue with Politicians spying on each other than I do Force (Government) spying on the Citizenry.

Let me make this as Clear as possible…

The U.S. Government can and should be Spying on other Countries.  It’s their Job.

Other Countries will be attempting to Spy on us, the U.S.  – It’s not a matter of being ‘OK’ with it, it’s their job… as it is ours to deny them that ability.

What is Not ‘OK’?

The U.S. Government Spying on Individual Citizens without a specifically crafted warrant to do so.  (The only argument worth having here; “Are Politicians considered Individual Citizens?”  It could also be useful to remind the NSA that their Love interests also fit into the ‘Citizen’ category… and some of the things they are doing is considered stalking at a minimum.)

Of course they are…

But the current framing of the ‘Offended’ is that they are ‘special’.  And while I might agree that they are special, I would offer that they are most often the kind of special that requires a helmet when walking outside.

In the end, the reason you should be more concerned about the U.S. Government Spying on you and not China, Korea, Israel or Google, is because none of the latter have yet found a way to show up at your door and throw you in jail.  (Although Google is probably working on it.)

The Politicians should be reminded of their place in society… which was always intended to be servants to those who are not in power.

This will be interesting to watch as most genuine Conservatives do not like being Spied upon, and most Democrats have spent huge amounts of time and money convincing their Useful Voters that they too believe in a Right to Privacy.

Can anyone spell Dissonance?

 

 


“Don’t we all Deserve Universal Healthcare?”

During an interview, Bill Ayers, the Leader of The Weather Underground which was a domestic terrorist group active during the 70’s and 80’s, asked an interesting question. “Don’t we all deserve Universal Healthcare?” otherwise known as Single Payer Government Run Health Care or the ultimate goal of Obamacare.

This Monday, June 30th, at the Albuquerque New Mexico VA Hospital, a man died when he collapsed in the cafeteria and the staff called an ambulance.

Allow me to rephrase what I just tapped out…

A Veteran of the US Military died Monday after he collapsed inside the VA Hospital and instead of carrying, wheeling, carting him to the ER which is reportedly a 4-minute walk… walk… or better yet summoning medical staff to assist him…  the cafeteria staff called an ambulance which took 30-minutes to arrive because according to the cafeteria staff it was the ‘policy’.

The man died.

The man died because of policy.

The man died because of bureaucracy.

The man died because reason and rational had vacated the very building which was best equipped to help him live.

The man died because some nameless, faceless, administrator made a rule and those government employees on duty feared the repercussions of not following that rule enough to allow a man to die in front of them.

I am not Surprised.  I am Sad.  But I am not Surprised.

When you are Everybody’s Problem, You’re Nobody’s Problem.

Welcome to Government Run Healthcare.

The VA is the template for the kind of Healthcare Socialists like Bill Ayers, Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Chuck Schumer et al. are forcing upon the American People.

To believe it is better than what we had just a few short years ago is to rewrite history and fabricate horrors which never existed.

The United States once practiced a level of Health Care envied, and utilized, by the rest of the world.

But it didn’t fit the Progressive Socialist template.

Now there is an all out war to destroy that private practice of medicine and follow the ‘enlightened’ path administered by Democratic Socialists world over.

And, to realize the Socialist Utopian Dream of People like Bill Ayers and our current President…

The true, real life, factual, stories from VA Hospitals around the United States had to be hidden.  Or at least hidden long enough to keep the public from rising up in great enough numbers to prevent this last piece of Socialism the United States had yet to embrace from being implemented.  There is a crime here and it’s not the reality of government medicine, but rather the cover-up of that reality in order to complete the transition of the United States from a Free Market Capitalist country with Constitutionally Limited Government and Individual Liberty to a country ruled by some derivative of Marxist Governing Theory.

As Stalin famously said “To make an omelet you have to break a few eggs.”… or in this case die on the floor of the hospital cafeteria.

To answer Bill Ayers question; No, you rancid terrorist, no one deserves Universal Healthcare.

I have never done anything which would deserve such treatment, nor to my knowledge did the man who died on the floor… feet from those who would not help him.

And I never wished such a terrible idea upon the rest of the United States, even those who profess to desire it so very badly.

The nightmare that is Obama Care must be repealed.  There is simply no time to waste.

And, if anyone really cared about those Veterans who fought for our freedom and liberty… at least what of it remains… they would all stand up and demand the privatization of the VA.

If for no other reason, do it for the Veterans.

 


Hero or Traitor?

Not Really, and Not Really.

Boehner will be added to my list of Republicans to vote against in a future Primary… as his assessment of Snowden as a Traitor is flawed, but indicative of his mindset.

Snowden only revealed that the Government is Spying Domestically.  Not How they are Spying Domestically.

And Frankly, compared to the Fact, that which is known, that our Government is killing U.S. Citizen with Missiles from Above, it pales in comparison.  But the public views it differently because it directly affects them and the way they lead their lives.  It is an admission that Privacy is Dead in America.

I believe Mr. Snowden did the right thing.  As far as being a Hero, that is left to be determined.

For those that fear he has damaged the NSA’s ability to Spy Domestically and have labeled him a Traitor, there is no evidence of that.

Is this another case of Idealistic Obama supporters “coming home to roost”?

Most definitely.

Someone should remind the Smartest Man to ever occupy the White House that when you run, and win, on Platitudes, your supporters hear what they want… just like you want.  Surprise should be suspended when they believe what you wanted them to believe, and then are disappointed when you fail to deliver.  And, Mr. President, your list of not delivering on your promises is very long indeed.

Mr. Snowden is just a harbinger of things to come.  And I say “good”.

Many of us on both sides of the aisle have screamed for greater transparency for decades.  If this is how we must get it, then so be it.

In regard to living in fear of terrorism, get used to it.

Even with this program operating for almost a decade, “Terrorism” never went away or ceased to exist.  And that’s the point.

It is better to live free with Terror being present than to live under the scrutiny of Government Force with Terror still being present.

It is how we were founded.  And, Terrorists are not “New”.

It is going to be an interesting future.
