The people on the right (correct) side of the political spectrum are afraid to make a statement without the qualification or but segment. For instance, I hope I never hear another statement with the phrase, of course I agree that black lives matter. My response is if you said all lives matter, would that not include black lives; and people who have to qualify that comment, would they not be making a racist statement. They have stated one race, but they have ignored many other races.
We refuse to look honestly at situations. The left (incorrect) side is saying that Israel must negotiate a peaceful solution with the Palestinians. Perhaps a two-state solution is desirable and will end all hostilities and bring peace to the area. Those who argue for this solution neglect to state that the Palestinians have been very consistent in their negotiating position, and that is that the only acceptable position for them is that every Jew is killed. Apparently they are somewhat flexible in how the death occurs, although prior action would seem they prefer beheading. How would you on the left negotiate if it were your head that was demanded with no other position acceptable?
We in the United States are in the same position. Those of us who support the position of freedom, individual liberties, and rule of law, are told that we must be more flexible in our compromising positions. This becomes difficult when we are shown that the only ultimate acceptable position is the total elimination of individual freedom and liberties, and the complete obliteration of the United States Constitution. We are told that the goal posts have been moved when we propose a compromise. The declaration that the United States must be fundamentally transformed is the only acceptable conclusion according to the left.
We have witnessed, not only the demand, but the accomplishment that education, from nursery school on up, must indoctrinate the individual in the way of collectivism. Each child must be taught the values of the state and not the parent or church. If they are not, the child is being abused, is what they say.
We have witnessed the destruction of the family, not only the black family, but all families. This has been accomplished through the demand for the legal killing of children, euphemistically called choice or abortion, through a breakdown in any and all morality, and through the acceptance and promotion of pornography and profanity.
The Chinese Flu is now understood much better. It is dangerous to older people and those people with underlying conditions. It is less dangerous to the vast majority of people than is the flu. The Chinese Flu is not an economic situation but a health issue. Treat it is such. If you are sick, stay home. If you are old and afraid, or have underlying health issues, isolate. But enough of this locking down and wearing useless and silly masks. Be an adult. Freedom requires responsible adults. And remember, when people have been wrong continually, chances are good they will be wrong again, Fauci.
Black Lives Matter is a foolish and racist statement. Those of you who have bought into this nonsense are exactly what Saul Alinsky meant when he said they need their “useful idiots.” The BLM movement is a self-declared Marxist group who has now become a major player in the transformation movement which includes other groups such as ANTIFA, Media Matters, and the Democrat party. These people have proven time after time they do not care what your race is, your life does not matter unless it promotes their cause. These people have proven time after time that you are a hindrance to their cause if you advocate for peaceful protesting. The breakdown of society through the breakdown of law and order is their goal and chaos is their means. Only rioters, looters, thieves, arsonists, and thugs are valued by them. When you idealists are chanting your stupid and racist slogans, understand that you are only a tool now that will have to be discarded and eliminated later. That will be your reward.
This is the way of the advocates for transformation from a free and independent society to a society under the “Dictatorship of the Proletariat.” Advocates means Soros, Obama, and their comrades.
In the words of Samuel Adams, “It is now high time for the people of this country to explicitly declare whether they will be free men or slaves.” That is how critical this election in 2020 is. And yet, those who are advocating for the people of the United States to become slaves to a sovereign government, appear that they will choose Joe Biden to be their candidate, yes, Dementia Joe hiding in his basement.
We hear less and less about Dementia Joe. We see less and less of Dementia Joe. Joe Biden has never been able to construct a coherent paragraph. Now he cannot construct a coherent phrase. Joe Biden has never been a person to take a stand based on principle but only on expediency. Now he switches his positions within one of his incoherent phrases. That he was suffering from insufficient intellectual capacity in the past was evident, and now that Dementia has inhibited his intellectual capacity even more, has been evident for at least a year and progressing daily. That is sad. Joe Biden has never generated national enthusiasm and is generating even less now.
The above are simply statements of fact, acknowledged by other candidates for the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) campaign during the primary season, other members of the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) Party, members of the press, and political observers. Even members of the Nazi Party acknowledged that Hitler was succumbing to the drugs that were being continuously injected so he could sleep and then awaken.
Why then would the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) Party move forward with his nomination if they can? Much will depend on whether or not Biden can be released from the basement and actually be in public for longer than a couple of hours. If it is determined he will not be able to stand and read from a prompter his acceptance speech, some whopper will have to be contrived or reality will have to be acknowledged.
Dementia Joe Biden is an ideal candidate for the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party. With him as a candidate, the party can try to portray safety with a known substance to the American public, and many will buy that concept, not because of Biden, but because of the hatred that has been manufactured against President Trump because he is draining the swamp of Washington D.C. as he promised. With the outrageous accusations and support of a press that has become the propaganda arm of the collectivist (Marxist, communist, socialist, progressive, Democrat, - all virtually the same) movement, the hierarchy of the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party believes they can win.
If that were to happen, Dementia Joe would be secluded somewhere in the White House much like Woodrow Wilson in his second term. The radical element, the same element that would be responsible for his election, would take complete control of the executive branch. The nominations for judges would be people like those nominated by Obama, people who do not believe in the Constitution and believe they have the right to make rulings based only on political principles. The deep state would be replaced so for instance, the EPA would have authority to be prosecutor, jury, and judge on environmental issues, the FBI would become the political enforcer for the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party, those of us who would voice opposition to the dictates of the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party would be silenced and even eliminated. The fundamental transformation declared by Obama, the same transformation outlined by Marx, would be completed.
The American people will become slaves to a sovereign government. The Untied States Constitution will be declared to be invalid because it was drafted by imperfect individuals. Of course, the imperfection of the individuals implementing the Marxist totalitarian state, will be proclaimed to be perfections, and those of us who speak truth will be silenced and eliminated.
That is the choice before us. Will we be free men or slaves, even though the person we elect to protect our freedoms is an imperfect person.
The Communist movement in the United States is even more vicious and real in 2020 than it was in 1919. This is an Article taken from the publication called The Communist Party of America on August 9, 1919 entitled The Lion and the Lamb. It could be June 1, 2020.
THE LION AND THE LAMB
“Might shall make right the law of the world” – this was one of the beautiful phrases President Wilson concocted for the benefit of the unthinking. It is indeed a mouth-filling resonant sentence, but it is nevertheless untrue.
“Might shall make right the law of the world” is untrue for might IS the law of the world. None but a fool or knave would contend otherwise. That Might is Right holds true in every walk of life, and no evidence can be brought to prove the contrary.
It has been true from the very beginning of time, and it requires but a scratch to disclose that beneath the thin veneer of civilization the brute still rules modern society. It is the universal law of life that the strong shall destroy the weak, that the fittest shall survive. One has to dabble but little in the realms of biology to discover that this law applies to all forms of life.
Man conquered other forms of animal life and crowned himself King of Beasts by his might. Although not endowed with natural offensive and defensive weapons, he has by cunning and mental ability succeeded in adding to his strength by the development of artificial weapons. As yet man has not succeeded in controlling the society in which he lives and has his being: its great contradictions are an unprobed mystery to the great mass of humanity.
Nor did this struggle cease with the subjection of the lower forms of life. As individuals, men struggled with one another, and a society developed and groups formed, the groups struggled and always it was the strongest that survived. If a group be weak it was conquered and destroyed or enslaved by the victors. All down through the ages the sword has been the arbitrator and the cry has been: Woe to the Vanquished!
Nor has that law been altered in our time. Never in its struggle with the master class in this or any other country has the working class gained any advantage which was not due to their might. In the various labor battles throughout the country the barking voice of machine guns as they spit death and destruction gives the lie to the statement that ought but might makes right.
When out of their misery the workers arise and cast off the hateful yoke of the master class in their own country they find the ruling classes of the world, but lately at each other’s throats, allied against them. The question of Right does not enter into the decisions of the master class as to whom they shall support and whom they shall oppose. It is a question of which will best serve their economic interests and perpetuate their power. Veiling their deeds behind a screen of words, they strive with every means at their command to gain their ends. They prate of rights only to those whom they wish to use to further their aims. Mortal codes are bended and twisted to serve their needs. Mercy, pity, humanity – these mean nothing and are not considered in the hour of triumph.
True, it is not nice – but it is a fact. It is one of the bitter realities of life, and a lesson we must learn. Power is all that counts. If the workers are ever to emancipate themselves they must secure the power that comes only as the result of education and organization. The sword is still the arbiter.
When the lion and the lamb lie down together the lamb will be inside.
The only crime one can commit is to fail. Kolchak is not denounced because of the death train of Siberia, or the putting to death of men, women and children who are suspected of harboring Bolsheviki sympathies, but only because he failed. He failed because he could not marshal sufficient forces to crush the Bolsheviki. His weakness proved that he was wrong. Had he been victorious he would have been right, for the victor is always right, because back of him is the power that has made possible the victory.
“Might is Right!”
Might has been right throughout all previous history of the world; it is right today, and it will be right in all the aeons of ages that stretch before us in the unknown future. Whatever else history may hold in its bosom for mankind, we know there will be only one wrong, and that will be failure, and only one right, and that will be might.
The ruling class is beginning to recognize the fact that Bolshevism is right for Russia, because it is capable of defending itself, while it is wrong in all other countries, because it has not yet acquired sufficient power. When the workers of all countries, like those of Russia, have raised themselves to the position of the ruling class and proclaimed the Dictatorship of the Proletariat of the world, anything they do will be right, because they will have the might to enforce it.
Yes, I know it used to be that the campaign was always thought to begin the day after Labor Day. Both of the political parties would have held their conventions and the major candidates for the president would have been known to all. As the political parties changed their format for selecting candidates from smoke filled rooms behind locked doors, to primaries that sadly most Americans believe are a part of our long term history and that this selection process is ordained and protected by the Constitution, so did the length of the process. Imagine, living in a time when the next election cycle did not start until the day after election day.
I will not be one to state that elections are more vicious today than they have ever been, because It is not true. We have had many vicious campaigns including the Adams vs Jefferson and the Jackson vs Quincy Adams. The press was just as nasty, but was not as ubiquitous as it is today.
This election is proving to be more vicious than the election in 2016. The left had no doubt that Hillary would win. The polls showed her to have commanding leads and the experts could find no path to victory for Donald Trump. The press and the Democrats, including Hillary, underestimated the American people. I do not believe there will be any underestimating this election, but never underestimate the narcissistic attitude of the left. The propaganda arm of the left, or the press, will certainly make salacious and unfounded claims. Biden is far less competent than was Hillary, and when you realize this incompetence is enhanced by Dementia, he will be far less visible and available. More responsibility for a win will be designated to the press.
The Democrat party has moved much more to the left and now openly calls for the United States to adopt the principles of the Communist Manifesto. Many of the principle elements of the Democrat party like, Antifa, BLM, Media Matters, and other George Soros funded, and Obama promoted groups will be extremely active, doing what they do best, bringing chaos, dysfunction, and disinformation. President Trump is more of a known to them, and they understand that what Donald Trump said he would do, President Trump did it. The biggest threat to the left is that President Trump has and is dismantling the swamp, which besides acting illegally, has established a very lucrative method of enriching many. In addition, President Trump has fulfilled the promise of Donald Trump to revamp the judicial system. The judicial system is critical to the left because the judge can say anything in the confirmation hearing and then rule in the manner of the left and that is to dismantle our Constitution and rule of law.
Samuel Adams told the American Colonists years ago, “It is now high time for the people of this country to explicitly declare whether they will be free men or slaves.” This is even more true today. We have a clear choice. President Trump has shown that he believes we should be free men. To be free men means that we make our own choices and control our own thoughts, but must take personal responsibility for the consequences of those choices and thoughts. To be slaves, which is what the left wants for us, is that government will make our choices and dictate our thoughts. We have no responsibility for those choices or thoughts, other than to follow the directions given to us and to enhance the power of those in control.
When making your choice, and you should take part in the election, do not ask yourself if you are a Republican, a Democrat, or any other party; do not ask yourself if you like of dislike Donald Trump or Joe Biden; do not consider your race, ethnicity, sex, or religion; only ask yourself if you wish to be a free person or a slave to government. This is our choice.
We can become a nation that values life, liberty, and property (pursuit of happiness) and values each individual citizen.
In order to do this, we will have to take some radical actions such as:
We will have to become a nation that operates under the concept of “rule of law.” That means that the law is applied per each individual. We ignore any reference to sex, race, religion, political beliefs, or anything but charge and whether or not it violates the law. This will take a herculean effort in that any and all laws that refer to things such as sex, race, religion, political beliefs, or anything other than that the law will be as applied to individuals and not to groups will have to be rewritten. Prior court precedence referring to anything other than application of law to individuals will have to be ignored. We all, as citizens, will have to view each other as individuals. This will be much easier to accomplish when the law does not require us to make distinctions.
We will have to become a nation with a limited government. The federal government will only be involved in those areas where the Constitution gives them specific powers. This will mean that departments such as Education, Health and Human Services, BLM, EPA, and so many others will have to be abandoned. This will diminish the presence of government and number of government personnel by at least 50% I would think. The states and local governments would become involved, but since they are not receiving block grants or other federal funding, they would be legislating based on the demands of the citizens of the respective state. If states wanted to legislate in the manner of New York, California, Washington, Oregon, Illinois, Connecticut, so be it. If you did not like it, you could move to other states or become involved in state affairs and work to elect people with different ideas. The right to vote would be encouraged and protected. A concerted effort would have to be made to be sure that only legal citizens could vote and could only vote once.
We would have to become a nation with a divided government. By limiting the federal government from usurping the role of the states, we would automatically restore our divided government in that power is to be divided between individuals, states, and the federal government. We would also have to restore the designated duties of the different branches of government. The legislative branch would be required to assume the power and responsibility it was given, and that is to legislate. Laws that do not legislate but are passed as a concept and then designate the executive branch to complete with regulations would have to be refused as not legitimate legislation. All laws would have to be complete before being passed to the executive branch for a signature or veto. The executive and judicial branches would have to refuse to legislate and throw it back to the legislative branch, as distasteful as that is to those in congress.
The people must again assume the role of being the sovereign. This means several things. We the people would be responsible for our own decisions, including the consequences of those decisions. We could not be excused by blaming negative consequences on society nor could we be punished or demonized by government for the positive aspects of our choices. We would have to become interested, involved, and informed citizens once again. Public employee unions of any kind would have to be eliminated. This would place public service employees on a level playing field with private citizen employees and prevent political factions from taking funds from other citizens to be used to promote policies that indoctrinate and influence. School choices such as Charter schools, private schools, and home schooling would be available to all without any form of government or union interference.
You might recognize these suggestions as not being suggestions that I made, but simply taking the ideas from our founders as to how they established our Republic and believed we sould continue to operate. Of course, in 1787 when our Constitution was drafted, we did not have political parties. We did have political factions. Those factions had different ideas, but they had a common goal and that goal was that liberty and freedom be preserved for all with all citizens having the freedom to live their own lives and have their own thoughts. Today, we have political parties, and one of those parties has as its goal to eliminate freedom and liberty and have government assume the role sovereign telling each individual how they are to live their lives and what thoughts they can have.
The call for the transformation of the United States has been happening for a long time. Collectivists and racist Woodrow Wilson called for our system, which has the possibility of having the executive being a member of one party and the legislative branch being controlled by a different party, to become a Parliamentarian system of one-party control. When our system was established, we did not have political parties and we were warned against the danger of developing political parties.
Collectivist Franklin Roosevelt did transform the United States from a nation dedicated to having a limited government to having a bureaucratic and dictatorial federal government that would become involved in every aspect of a citizen’s life, including what they could think.
On January 10, 1963, the House of Representatives and later the Senate began reviewing a document entitled 'Communist Goals for Taking Over America.' It contained an agenda of 45 separate issues (attacks and techniques) that, in hindsight, were quite shocking then and equally stunning today.
15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States. The Democrat Party was already captured by the Socialist movement. Socialist Norman Thomas was a six-time candidate for president as a Socialist but stopped running when he said the Democrat Party had become a Socialist Party. Lenin said socialism is the gateway to communism and so it was with the Democrat Party that has now become a Communist Party.
17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers' associations. Put the party line in textbooks. This has been done in our Public-School Systems and many private schools from nursery school through doctorate degrees.
25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.
26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy, and promiscuity as "normal, natural, healthy."
27. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity, which does not need a "religious crutch."
29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.
30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the "common man."
“We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.” Barack Obama, October 30, 2008 His total regime concentrated on transforming the Democrat Party to a Communist Party and transforming the United States to a Communist Nation. What we are witnessing today is a culmination of this effort to transform the United States to a Marxist Totalitarian State.
There are many people, like the Obama’s, Holder, Jarrett, and other Comrades who are following the outlines of transformation. There are many Americans, Democrats, independents, and RHINO’s who are “useful idiots” in assisting in this transformation by believing and supporting the lies they have been told.
The actions I outlined here are only a small part of what has been done in this transformation effort. So many Freedom Loving Americans engage in the day by day skirmishes, but are not aware of the overall plan that has been taking place for at least 100 years. We are at or near a point of no return. If President Trump were not to be re-elected, we will have reached that point of no return. Even if President Trump wins, the campaign of the collectivist will continue. As you have seen, the collectivist will go to any ends of evil and destruction to complete their goal of transforming the United States to a Marxist totalitarian state.
Our fight for freedom and liberty will continue forever. We must begin today and never stop being a part of the irate and tireless minority keen on “Setting Brushfires of Freedom.” Our freedom and liberty are and always will hang in the balance.
I had never read a book that told the history of China from very ancient times to today. I ordered “A History of China” by John Keay. He begins his story at approximately 1050 B.C. I am now near the end and reading about the times of China around 1800 A.D. It has been a fascinating read. I have done this on many different countries and many different regions as well. It is not much different from reading a novel, except this is real life. You might say in all the different histories the story is similar, only the names change.
As we read through histories of different countries we learn about new, in the terms of China, dynasties that come to power and then lose power. We see these cycles in every history. The cycles differ somewhat in time frames, but the patterns are similar. Generally, we see a time of building and prosperity early, and then we began to see a decline until the dynasty or power is overthrown. The overthrow is almost always the result of immorality, corruption, and acceptance, even encouragement, of hatred of groups against others. Those in charge become more and more autocratic, demanding more and more conformity, becoming totally intolerant of anybody who would challenge those in power in any way.
What we learn is that in the early stages of a new dynasty or government, individuals are encouraged to strive to be their best in whatever their endeavor is. That could be outstanding military minds who rise from the ranks of the troops, it could be engineers designing new innovative ways of progressing, it could be aspiring bureaucrats who bring about more efficient means in government, and of course entrepreneurs who find new and more efficient ways of producing food or other necessary goods. These people are celebrated for their achievements.
As the government matures, we find it becoming more and more guarded of its power. It begins to question those who would achieve, determining their achievements to be a threat to the power of government. Individual achievement and innovation, which is the result of non-conformity, is not only discouraged but punished. We find corruption and encouragement of corruption by conformists, to become the rule as lawlessness becomes commonplace and accepted behavior.
During the years where the principles of individualism are practiced, the society is building and prospering. There is peace and harmony as individuals are responsible for their own behavior and the consequences of that behavior. As the government becomes more and more controlling we see the principles of collectivism being adopted. All must conform to one train of thought, different rules apply to different people, society is considered to be responsible for the actions of individuals. This causes a decline in the economic and social aspects of the society. Disharmony, immorality, lawlessness, and a break down in all aspects of the society are the result.
These patterns are pretty much universal. Sometimes a society can correct itself, but the only way it does is when the demands of conformity and collectivism are reversed, and the freedom of individualism is adopted.
We in the United States of American are at a crossroads. We have been at a crossroads before. That was before the American Revolution. At that time Samuel Adams stated, “It is now high time for the people of this country to explicitly declared whether they will be free men or slaves.” Free men must be responsible for their own actions, adhering to the principles of morality, thinking for themselves, being law abiding citizens, and respecting the life, liberty, and property of all. Slaves on the other hand, blame society for their situations, and thus they practice immorality, they conform to the dictates of others, they are lawless, and have no respect for the life, liberty, or property of others.
Racism is defined as a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race by Merriam-Webster.
Dictionary.com say racism is a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human racial groups determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one's own race is superior and has the right to dominate others or that a particular racial group is inferior to the others.
These above definitions are consistent with most definitions of racism. They place all those who are a part of a named group, such as Black, Caucasian, Brown, Yellow, and whatever into specific categories to identify their individual characteristics. This is collectivism which promotes identification with groups and not based on individual characteristics.
The racist statement “Black Lives Matter” is what I refer to as the epitome of racism. Why does the life of somebody with darker pigmentation matter and not the live of somebody with less pigmentation? Is it simply because of the pigmentation? To assume so is racist at its worst.
The statement by Dementia Joe that if you are considering voting for President Trump and not him, than you are not black, is an incredible racist and condescending statement and should be soundly criticized by anybody who advocates for freedom and liberty and roundly supported and praised by anybody who supports a collectivist (Marxist, communist, socialist, progressive, Democrat, all virtually the same) community.
When you condemn an entire community of law enforcement for the actions of an individual, you are practicing the racist element of collectivism. When you condemn the killing of a subdued suspect because they were black, and not for the actions of the individual policeman, you are a collectivist.
When you support actions for anybody based on their race, such as special privileges or requiring higher or lower standards, you are practicing and encouraging racism. Perhaps the best-known individual who fought against racism, Martin Luther King, Jr. stated it best when he said, “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.”
When you who run around screaming “Black Lives Matter”, understand that you are promoting exactly the opposite of what Martin Luther King, Jr. advocated. We will make progress, when all of us can say we will look beyond the physical characteristics and dwell on the content of the character. We will be much closer to achieving the essence of the dream Martin Luther King, Jr. had.
You have a choice, you can be a part of the solution or you can be the problem by justifying your outrageously racist sentiment as you chant a truly racist statement, “Black Lives Matter.”
In a free society that follows the fundamentals of Individualism and not Collectivism, each individual makes choices and is responsible for the consequences of their choices. If I chose to break into a Target and steal the property of another, in the name of some manufactured justice, I am responsible for that action and not society. Those who would blame society for my actions are enablers and promoters of a lawless society.
In collectivism, it is some sort of group, rather than an individual who is at the center of all social, political, and economic concerns, and issues. Those who are proponents of this ideology say that the interests and claims of groups (it may even be a state) supersede those of individuals. Thus, a society being a group is considered to be superior to an individual. It is treated as some sort of super-organism over and above individuals. Collectivism believes in the subjugation of the individual to a group, which may be family, tribe, society, party, or a state. Individual has to sacrifice for the collective good of the people. The proponents of collectivism consider their stand to be superior to those of individualists as they are morally superior thinking of the collective good of the group or the society.
The focus of all thinking in individualism is the individual. When talking of political ideologies, classical liberalism comes closest to this thinking as individual human being is taken as the central unit of all analysis. It is not that an individual is any different from the society. However, an individualist, even while remaining within the society thinks about his own personal interests. This doctrine believes that society is there, but it is ultimately made up of individuals who choose and act. The foundation of individualism lies in one’s moral right, to pursue one’s own happiness. However, it is not in contradiction with collectivism as it believes that it is necessary for individuals to preserve and defend institutions that have been made to protect one’s right to pursue happiness.
For instance, in the recent happenings, we as individualists believe that the policeman in the Floyd incident is responsible for his actions and not the nations police. Likewise, we who are individualists would say that we should look at the actions of the individual’s on the Minneapolis City Council who have over the many years they have been in charge, done nothing to improve their department, understanding that this same policeman had numerous complaints against him and had a reputation for being overly aggressive. In an individualist atmosphere he would have been viewed as an individual policeman and held accountable. In a collectivist community he would be considered a part of a union and would have been protected as a part of the group and not as an individual.
This same difference holds true in regard to racism. Racism exists in collectivist communities, those communities being promoted by the leftist factions, because they believe we should always view society as groups, color of skin, religious affiliation, sex, financial status, educational status, and on and on. They advocate that actions should be based on the group.
Individualists believe that factors such as color of skin, religious affiliation, sex, and on and on are not to define the individual, but only the content of their character as Martin Luther King, Jr. stressed. The individualist would say that the person running from a store with a stolen television is responsible for that action. The Individualist would say that the policeman kneeling on the neck of another individual is responsible for the consequences of that action.
The individualist also stresses that it is the choice of the individual to voice their opinion and that speech is not to be outlawed. That is not to say that the speech cannot be judged by others and conclusions drawn. For instance, I as an individual have every right to not attend or watch sports because I judge the speech and actions of those being paid to play as collectivist speech as well as “stupid” speech. The same would hold true for those who place their importance on memorizing lines or using a God given talent to them such as singing.
Collectivism, that ideology being promoted, no demanded by the left, is a very stupefying ideology. It demands that all conform to one way of thinking and acting. It demonizes, banishes, and eliminates any who would challenge its proclamations. It enslaves the minds and the actions of the people. It is the way of the Marxist, communist, socialist, progressive, and yes Democrat, because they are all virtually the same.
Individualism is a much more difficult ideology to be maintained. Many despise individualism because it demands that each individual be responsible for their actions. If you commit a crime, you are tried on the basis of your actions and not on the basis of a group to which claim allegiance. If you make proclamations about issues, you are responsible for those proclamations and the results of those proclamations, At the same time you are encouraged to think for yourself and proclaim based on your thoughts and not the thoughts or demands of others.
Individualism is a much more difficult society to maintain because it requires individuals to be responsible. It also requires individuals who do not conform and are willing to stand alone for principle. It demands that we view each individual as just that an individual and not relegate them to some preconceived notion demanded by the dictates of a group elite.
When society demands that to utter the phrase “Black Lives Matter” is a freeing and non-racist phrase, and must be the mantra of all, we have sunk to the pits of collectivism, which is the same as sinking to the pits of Hell. The phrase “Black Lives Matter” is the epitome of racism. The Black Lives Matter movement is the height of collectivism. I, as an individual have the right to make these proclamations, and must make these proclamations because they are the truth, and are liberating to all individuals. That is the epitome of Individualism, which is the opposite of racism, and is the height of freedom and liberty.
The Untied States Constitution was only ratified after the there was an agreement that a specified list of liberties would be added to the Constitution. The argument against adding this list was not that these liberties did not exist, but that to list them might limit them to only those listed. The Bill of Rights was added, but in the Bill of Rights we included the 9th amendment that states specifically liberties are not limited to those specified.
This was so crucial to the colonists because they understood that the power of government is the single biggest threat to the liberty of the citizen. The colonists understood that a certain element of the population will always use the power of government to bring about the control of the people and enslave them to the demands of the government.
This is where the United States is today. We have the faction of the population that still believe control and/or enslavement of the people by the government is wrong. This faction believes that government’s role is to protect the liberties and not to control, limit, or abolish liberties. The other faction believes that ordinary people, that would be you and me, are incapable of being just and virtuous and therefore those people in government must control society by implementing their vision of justice and virtue.
The conservative faction believes that people are not only capable of making their own decisions, but are also capable of electing representatives that will honor the role of government, and that role is to protect liberties and not control, limit, or abolish them. The leftist faction has believed throughout history that the community must control, limit, and if necessary abolish liberties for some or all. This group always places what they deem to be the interest of the community above the interest of the individual. This faction is called collectivists and their ideal is where all of the population conforms to one ideology, the ideology of community or communism.
The Democrat party has been moving more and more to the left over the years and are now openly supporting and promoting communism for the United States. They believe the population should have liberty, but only as the elite deem is in the best interest of the individual which must conform to the dictates of the community. The Democrat party has sold its soul to the communist movement. Some in the Democrat party believe they can control the communists by appeasing them. These members of the Democrat party have not studied history. Those on the left do not compromise but keep demanding until they have achieved their goal of the classless society that is totally conforming and totally equal, that utopia that has never been achieved because it is an impossible and an undesirable society to achieve.
The Democrat party has openly called for the abolition of the United States Constitution. They say they want it to be a living document so it can mean what they want it to mean. The Democrat party has said the liberties guaranteed in the constitution must be curtailed, and in some situation abolished. Included in this list would be the liberties protected in the first and second amendments. The Democrat party has stated that since they are the majority they can limit a person’s, even the president’s, right to due process. The Democrat party has said that we are no longer a Republic where liberties are protected equally for all, but we are a Democracy where the majority determines the extent liberties will be extended to groups and to individuals.
Our founders rejected Democracy because they understood that democracy was rule by the mob. That the majority could and would limit liberties. That the majority could and would determine who could live and die. That the majority could and would determine what if any property people could keep and how the property taken would be redistributed.
The Democrat party of today is openly stating that if they are elected in November they will institute total rule by the majority or true democracy. Democracy is dictatorship by the majority. What history has proven is that democracy quickly becomes dictatorship of the few over the many with those unwilling to conform to the demands of those in power banished or eliminated.
The last twelve years have proven the Democrat party of today is truly the Communist party of today. Their words and their deeds have confirmed this. We must combat them and prevail in 2020. If we do not, the United States Constitution will be that living document they desire and will have lost all its protections, liberties will be curtailed, limited, and abolished. All pretenses of rule of law will be gone, and we will have dictatorship by the majority that will overnight become dictatorship of the few over the many. This is exactly what the elite of the far left is telling us and doing in collectivist controlled states.
