Any collectivist (Marxist, communist, socialist, progressive, Democrat, - all virtually the same) society will always end in failure. It can end no other way. It has at its very core, hate and fear. The goal of every collectivist movement is to control and dominate. This is a sure way to bring chaos, calamity, and failure.
In the United States today, we are in the middle of the same struggle that has taken place throughout history, and that struggle is between the rights of the individual and the control of government. Will the individual determine the course of their life and thoughts, and be responsible for such, or will government assume control of the lives and thoughts of all people.
On the surface, anybody would say this is a remarkably simple choice, the individual should be in control of their own life and thoughts. Yet, throughout history, the masses have chosen control by the government. The freest and most prosperous country in the history of the world is on the cusp of throwing that freedom and prosperity aside and opting for the control of government over their lives and thoughts.
This is happening in the United States for the same reasons it has happened throughout history. A group of people who have the financial resources, the access to outlet platforms, lack of ethics, and the understanding that to achieve their end goal any means necessary is acceptable and desirable. A certain number of this group understand the ways and means to accomplish their goal of total control over is society is that fear and hate are powerful motivators.
The elites of the left have been engineering both motivating factors for several years and have installed the curriculum of hate and fear in the education system and media outlets. For many years, the left has been selling the fear of global something – warming, cooling, change – and if the public does not adopt any and all of their wealth sharing methods, all of humanity will perish. There is no hard evidence that this is true. The promised annihilation dates have come and gone, and yet the fear caused by this lie continues to persuade people that unless they succumb to this idea that success and prosperity is evil, they will surely perish. unless they completely surrender to the demands of the left, is very persuasive to those who have been taught not to think but to simply accept.
The left has now used the threat of a virus, a virus that has proven to be no more of a threat to the vast majority of the population than the common flu, to persuade the population to surrender their liberties and their right to earn a livelihood. This massive surrender could not have come about but for the constant conditioning through the education system which is now an indoctrination system, and the media which is a propaganda arm for the left. These two elements have persuaded the population that government, even career bureaucrats, always have the best interest of the people in mind. All Freedom Loving People will stipulate to the fact that those in government, elected, appointed, or hired, should never be trusted, or followed without complete transparency and a thorough examination.
The left has also used the motivating factor of hate to further their goal of complete and total control over the lives and minds of the people. Causing friction and animosity between groups is easiest to accomplish when the groups you are igniting are based on race, religion, or ethnicity. Those instigating the hate must convince one group that they are victims of another group simply because of race, religion, or ethnicity. Those instigating the hatred will convince the group that any negative situation they perceive, is because of the willful oppression of the one group over the other. Once people have been convinced they are victims, the rationalization to justify any action against the perceived oppressor becomes not only simple but becomes a badge of honor.
The way to overcome this certain path to destruction desired by the left, is to change the hearts and souls of those reacting to this fear and hate. The indoctrination systems must be eliminated, which in America means that school choice is an absolute must. Home schooling and private schooling must be encouraged. Federal aid to schools must be eliminated along with the Federal Department of Education, and Teacher Unions.
We must stop supporting in any way the propaganda news arm of the left. This not only means that we do not financially support them through purchase of their services or advertising in their outlets, but that we no longer publish as news their outlandish claims. The View, MSNBC, CNN, and so forth survive because other news outlets comment on their foolishness. Report the news. What these people say is not news and they would lose total relevancy if their comments were given no publicity.
We must take every opportunity to have conversations with those who would view themselves as victims. I am not speaking about the agitators but those who have been influenced. We must treat them as individuals and not as members of a group. I believe Marin Luther King, Jr. was absolutely correct when he stated that all should relate to each other based on the content of our character and not the color of our skin, our ethnicity, or our religious beliefs. This is in fact the essence of the philosophy of individualism and is the underlying basis of the founding of our country.
Individualism has always been the basis of freedom and prosperity. Collectivism is based on hate and fear and always fails. Which do you choose????
