Rantings and tirades of a frustrated economist.
Envy is eternal
Unfortunately, they are altering the cultural framework the country. They've already destroyed the culture of England, who have completely surrendered the rights of the People that were enumerated in the Magna Carta. Not created, but rather just a document forcing the king to recognize the rights and liberties the People had enjoyed for centuries. An interesting aside, 2015 is the 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta. Yet, if you search, you'd be hard pressed to find any celebration of that at an American university. Odd how we often see the cries at the death of the Humanities at universities, but here is the perfect opportunity to reinvigorate history, philosophy, political science with presentations and celebrations of this fundamental document. What is heard from the campus is crickets, or rather Leftist screams. BTW, I recommend a talk titled 'Magna Carta presentation by Professor John Robson" on Youtube. It is an informal talk given to an Ottawa Libertarian meeting in 2011. In 45 minutes he provides 44 more minutes of education on the Magna Carta than any American K-12 school and many universities.
Leftism: soulless, single-intentioned machine specifically and tirelessly made to produce a particular future.It's a friggin' Terminator.
If that's the case, then get the guns and lock n load
I don't buy the notion that doing something simply for the sake of doing something is characteristically leftist. The American Right certainly does no end of it when it comes to its favorite bogeyman, terrorism. Has there ever been a counter-terrorism measure that wasn't enthusiastically supported by the Right across the board? Did anyone ever think of doing a cold, self-interest-based cost-benefit analysis of this or that measure? Might well be that the optimal response would be to do very little, but try suggesting that, and you've just been deemed a fifth column secret Muslim terror apologist Chamberlain.And, consequently, by adhering to the notion that there is no such thing as too much government when the topic is counter-terrorism, the Right has caused America more loss of life and economic damage than Al-Qaeda could ever have hoped to do on its own.
“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.” --My favorite C.S. Lewis quote
