I assume if you are reading this you are not an anti-Semite. However, if you are part of an army of conformists hoping to create change for the better (like e.g., public schoolteachers for less CO2, SUVs, hamburgers and capitalism) you really need to think about this.
Do you think an army of Nazis wearing jackboots created change for the better? Do you think a large population of Muslims looking to destroy all Jews within their borders is progress? Do you think Galileo or Einstein cared one wit about your praise of conformity?
Here’s where you may have gotten totally lost. First I am assuming you are an atheist. So, let’s take Darwinian evolution just a small step further down the Left’s conformist rabbit hole.
Atheists have this theory that all of us have arisen from immortal, mutable, random, cumulative, synergistic chemical reactions that have resulted in ever more complex biological systems, i.e., beings that exist. Atheology also requires that you believe that such beings also are programmed to think that they know how they should exist, right?
So, you think the end result of all of this human evolution is mulchable populations — conformists as all of them should be — creating change for the better. And, you undoubtedly criticize someone like Ayn Rand because she is an atheist but she refuses to share your belief that individual liberty is a myth. You know she never can agree with you in praise of socialism and you hate her for that, right?
Rand believes in free will. For Rand it’s real and there’s nothing smug about it. And where does that lead. For starters it means the Left hates Rand the atheist and for ONE reason only.
Rand would choose Bush over Stalin every time. And Rand would choose science over the superstition and ignorance of the masses every time too.
Take, for example, the True Believers of global warming alarmism. With them it’s all about politics not science. Otherwise, it wouldn’t be a Left versus right issue now would it?
Obviously it’s all political and yet for all of the evolution of man, mastery over the vagaries of nature was as prized as the search for truth for its own sake. Now that the nihilism of the Leftists and their liberal Utopianiam has reached its zenith in the West whatever once had value is now worthless and truth doesn’t matter anymore.
Let us state it another way. Who do you prefer George Washington or Mao Tse-Tung?
I think the answer is simple:
- If you are a Tibetan Buddhist monk, you prefer a God-fearing protector of personal and religious freedom like George Washington
- If you are a tenured professor in liberal fascist academia, then Ward Churchill is more inspiring than Winston Churchill, the mass murderer Mao is your philosopher, and Bush-haters Castro and Chavez are your comrades.
