The crisis the United States faces today, yesterday, and tomorrow is the destruction that is the evil of collectivism. Collectivism is the movement that all people must conform to the thoughts of the community and those who would differ are evil and must be quieted in any and every way possible. Collectivism is an all-encompassing term for the conformity demanding movements of Marxism, communism, socialism, progressives, and todays Democrat party.
The individual, or the person who will stand apart from the crowd, many times alone such as Samuel Adams did so often, is looked upon as an enemy of humanity. Individualism is that philosophy that champions the individual who will challenge the common position of the masses, the person who will say why, the person who will say show me, the person who will say “This can be done better” and then does it. Individualism is the philosophy upon which the United States was founded, the same philosophy that enabled the United States to become, “that shining city on a hill.”
Collectivism has dominated society throughout history. It was set aside in the Western World after World War II for a short time, but is rearing its ugly head with vigor. The collectivist understands the mentality of the masses, and that mentality is that the masses will go along to get along and for the most part do not want to be bothered with matters beyond a very narrow band. The masses do not delineate between philosophies such as individualism and collectivism, but concentrate on the philosophy of meism. This is not wrong, just reality. The meists do become involved in times of crisis, because their world is directly affected.
The collectivist understands this and takes advantage of it. The danger the collectivist posses to the meist, is that the collectivist has as their goal to control everybody. The collectivist demands complete loyalty and conformity to their ideals of conformity by all, and equality of all except the few elite within the controlling group of the collectivists. The collectivist has two overriding rules and they are, (1) our only standard is a double standard, and the second is like onto the first, (2) the ends always justify the means. Nothing is out of bounds when it comes to achieving the ultimate end of total conformity and equality as they define it.
Today the world is facing what is being termed by many as threat to our very existence. Here is what we know. The very threat to our existence appears to be turning the coroner in many countries including Australia, Italy, Spain, Denmark, Sweden, and yes, the United States. We also know that those who are crying the loudest are the same people who said in January that we should not be concerned. This includes Fauci, De Blasio, and Pelosi. We also know that the original models used by those like Fauci were vastly overstated and their revisions have been vastly overstated. The numbers of cases and the deaths are small fractions of the original predictions and this is when any death remotely connected to the virus is called a death caused by the virus.
We were told that the hospitals would be overwhelmed, and the hospital system would collapse. In the United States, we have many hospitals with empty beds and empty emergency rooms. The exception to this would be the New York City area, and the mainstream media is painting the picture that the New York City area represents the total United States.
We have heard leaders of the collectivist movement like Clyburn and Newsom say that the collectivist movement must you this crisis to advance the collectivist movement that would entail abolishing completely the United States Constitution, which includes the Bill of Rights, and do as Marx said, “wrest degree by degree the capital from the capitalist.”
As this “crisis” subsides, which it will and is, these same collectivists will take advantage of the meists, who became a part of the hysteria and begged the collectivists to take away their liberties for safety, by telling them that it was enemy #1 of the collectivist movement and that President Trump overreacted and caused the elimination of their livelihoods while they, the collectivists were advocating for moderation. I know this is a lie, but remember double standard and ends justify the means. The mainstream press will promote this lie, and the meists will start to sing that song.
G F. W. Hegel said “To pit this single assertion, that “in the Absolute all is one,” against the organized whole of determinate and complete knowledge, or of knowledge which at least aims at and demands complete development – to give out its Absolute as the night in which, as we say, all cows are black – that is the very naïveté of emptiness of knowledge.”
Hegel is credited by many to be the Father of Collectivism. I would disagree that he was the father, but was certainly a strong proponent. Marx and Engels both studied Hegel. Hegel was a German philosopher in the early half of the nineteenth century.
The “Absolute” to which Hegel refers is the “end” to which the collectivist strives. This is the “classless society” of Marx and it is the ultimate of the reorganized government referred to by Clyburn and Newsom. The collectivist will use the strategy to which Hegel refers; "to use the naivete and emptiness that all cows are black," if it will move their movement closer to the “Absolute” or classless society advocated for by Marx, Lenin, Mao, Castro, Chavez, Obama, Sanders, and all the other collectivists who are promoting the Spectre sweeping America.
I will continue to be an individualist who stands apart from the evil known as collectivism. Will you join me? Will you also become a dedicated advocate of “setting brushfires of freedom” in the hearts of Americans? It is critical if you want to pass our freedom and liberty to our posterity.
