Consider this, what should be a memorized quote by freedom loving peoples:
“You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half get the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.”
–Dr. Adrian Rogers, 1931 to 2005
Devoted Prager Fan, Dezra Helgeson, blogged this priceless bit of learning here nearly two years ago.
Please carry Mr. Rogers’ thoughts with you as you read further.
Marxists and other Leftwingers have never been taught this truth of human experience. Certainly, by all of his words and deeds, president Obama apparently is oblivious to the concept, as are, very likely, the vast majority of Americans these days. Where would we have learned otherwise? We have had several generations of the Welfare State. Without condemning it in its entirety, let us admit robbing from the rich and those who produce, and giving riches to the poor for their votes, is a very tempting domestic and even foreign policy for those who want to dictate ones future.
Who wants to consider the consequences?
At any time policies which legalize such theft of any proportions need police, secret or otherwise, to enforce the law.
Lefties have almost always been the initiators of policies in my life time….since 1934. Throughout my own education and experience, Democrats, especially the more Marxist oriented, have judged good government representatives as those who come up with the most laws to control where ones money goes on the home front and how it is spent….how one is to live and not to live, often disregarding the consequences.
And there almost never is an end to Marxist imagination, even of those who think Marxism can be married to some degree to the liberties most Americans have taken for granted.
In Marxist states there is a degree of freedom. When I was in the good old USSR in 1966 a woman could choose a blue tam head covering or a brown tam head covering, if she were lucky enough to stop at a hat and cap shop where both were availalble. This particular style was decided by a Communist Party committee, who at the highest levels decided forever and a day what was chic for the decade for the IDEAL MARXIST CITIZEN.
One had choice in newspapers as well. There were Communist Party papers for children, adolescents, “adults”. A morning paper, and a kind of evening one, one for sports, one for political humor………all well organized for all the communities of this 8,400,000 square mile empire of Socialist Power by the Communist party, made up of Obama-like people doing good for humanity, opposing all intolerance, supporting universal health care………..Doing good works for ones population became the State Religion worshipped and engineered by believeing bureaucrats……the only religion allowed in town.
Competition from thinking would lead to inequality. Only one line of thought would be necessary to reach socialist paradise. The State under Marxism would decide the needs of its citizens.
The good old USSR was the dream of most of the international Marxists for more than 80 years. For many, actually perhaps most, of the social science faculties of modern day American colleges and universities wistfully dream of this very State Socialism, only without Josef Stalin, for your and my America.
“Marxism will put an end to Jewish greed”, these Lefty Jewish leaders and others used to and often still do emote. The Jewish angle has in our day become popular to unify many American “genteel” Marxist-oriented trouble makers with muslim causes, both the terrorist kind and others.
Some of these Americans talk Marxist-Islam language to improve their own image of tolerance perfection. Mayor of New York, Michael Bloomberg and his think-alikes come to mind.
Establishing a society which consists of varying degrees of human equality is a long time Christian concept. Indeed, outside of the prospects for an after life, isn’t ‘sharing’ at the heart of Christian charity? I am not well versed in Judaism at all and for that sole reason omit that part of the JudeoChristian spiritual messge from the ancients. ”Sharing” can be complex and cause dire consequences upon a peoples.
Leftists, whether Soviet or American, believe that government is best when government governs most. The State knows what is best for the culture and the citizen. “Experts” will teach bureaucrats perfect deeds, especially means of production. Saul Alinsky will teach student Barack Obama…….to spread the wealth by organizing hate, disgruntled, the disenfranchised groups. If these groups aren’t necessarily hateful, digruntled, and don’t feel disenfranchised, they should feel that way…..according to the Barack Obamas of our country. They just don’t know it yet . These Barack Obamas are usually the same people who shame Americans for wanting to share their democratic values with others in the world.
Often poverty is a state of mind. There are countless human numbers on Earth living in poverty which would shock most westerners. I can boldly assure you, dear reader, that in my lifetime there is no American community I have seen in nearly a half century which would be equal to the visible poverty in parts of my Twin Cities before the 1950s….and worse, in the “rural” native Minnesota Indian communities until about a generation later.
One of the best of all Soviet era adages was “The future is known. It’s the past that keeps changing.”
Since the left is devoted to ruling people, and the right is generally devoted to seeking ones wealth…..the conservative, that is, the person who shuns Big Government, Big Labor, and Big Business, is left out of the biggest threats to the American future. The conservative yearns for small and efficient government to be managed by the people who defend the Nation’s Constitution’s umbrella of laws which include the peoples’ unalienable rights.
Marxism is the marriage of this triumvirate of “Bigs” believing it is in the peoples’ interest that government manages all. NEVER IN AMERICAN HISTORY HAS GOVERNMENT POWER BECOME SO DOMINANT IN AMERICAN CULTURE!
It is the fear of outspoken American democratic conservatives like Dennis Prager, that state authority over American life is at the core of the Obama agenda. Proof is clearly illustrated from his policies forcing government managed health care, increased taxing of anything free enterprise including individuals, nationalizing General Motors and Chrysler to satisfy his Union backers, and crippling forever American industry with taxes upon everyone, (except Obama voters, the majority of whom do not pay federal income tax) in order to satisfy the Global Warming Crisis fraud and the Noam Chomskies and other Marxists who demand a weakened America by handing over a trillion dollars and more…in perpetuity, to the “little peoples of the third world” to force greater equality among peoples.
In general this triumvirate of ‘Bigs’ already is so well established in the good old USA, that we dance with it every day….especially those who go to university, read the New York Times, or are friends of George Soros or fans of Noam Chomsky…….and include almost all of the tender-hearted women who married into American wealth, or came from American wealth, and sons whose fathers created wealth, who have so unwisely let their feelings spend their fortunes to ruin the America of opportunity by financing the Obama evangelists of our America, either in art, politics, or business and education.
Their fortunes have changed the way our past is written….just like in the good old USSR.
The greatest and most successful human experiment in sharing life and wealth has occurred from the dreams of our Christian forefathers. They were MEN. They were WHITE. They were learned people of their times with a religious, social, economic dream……..that people had certain unalienable rights….life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness…………..and these rights were GOD given.
It is the habit of people to possess views and ideas. It is the habit of people not to know the path of those generations not yet born.
IT IS THE PERPETUAL EVIL HABIT OF THE LEFTWING OF HUMAN POLITICS TO JUDGE THOSE OF OUR MEANINGFUL HUMAN PAST BASED ON THE VALUES OR LACK OF VALUES OF CURRENT TIME.
The Teacher and Priest class are almost always those responsible for these sins. It is tradition to rely one these folks for the ‘final word’…..We revere it as education. In modern times, writers, whether fiction or not, publishing SHOCK is highly prized especially in the American academy. So the Soviet adage becomes true….once again, “The future is known. It’s the past that keeps changing”.
Modern Teachers and Priests who teach teachers and priests are atheists…and usually anti-Christian. They now rewrite American History so they can teach Marxism religiously and unchallenged. Both Republicans and Democrats are taught by the same Teachers and Priests.
Truth is long lost. Heroes, some made artificially, others like Abraham Lincoln and George Washington, heroes of almost immortal proportions to our people and their ideals are vilified for not being a MODERN LIBERAL. Thomas Jefferson is damned for owning slaves. Therefore, the Marxists contend, America is racist and always has been.
One of the most vile Americans in our history is America hater, Noam Chomsky. He professed accurately, that to destroy the ideals of a culture, one must destroy that culture’s heroes. Noam Chomsky is a “saint” to the Obama lefties who wish to create a NEW MARXISM, based on forced equality, that is, Equality by Decree from the State. America’s noble past, its Christian ideals, its story and all those who profess to tell it, must be smeared and culled from public society.
Obama is presently doing his student duty, campaigning with Marxism smearing on his mind.
Smearing is fundamental to selling Marxism to a culture of free peoples. Whoever would vote to become enslaved?……Not many men.
