Many years ago me and my brother were engaged in glorious snow fort battle. Never had he or I ever built stronger, sturdier snow forts. We would go out at night and pour water on our forts so they would be reinforced with a 3 inch coating of ice. So strong were the forts they were impenetrable to snow balls. So we started (much to the concern of our mother) building and throwing ice balls.
While more dangerous, they were more effective, knocking off a chip of the snow fort here. A chip of the snow fort there, and then we're hurriedly jump out of our forts to repair them while having a gentlemen's agreement to then attack the other side of our opponent's fort.
Then something dawned on me.
If I were to build a simple column of snow on the top of my fort, much like a thick snow flagpole, my brother would be tempted to knock it down. This would then draw the majority of his fire and munitions, and he would waste those precious resources on a pointless target, while I could reinforce my fort and build more ice balls.
Once built nearly all of his missiles were directed at the snow column and I was allowed to strengthen my fort. Occasionally he would hit it, knocking it down and then celebrating. But I would just put up a new column in a matter of seconds and continue on.
Naturally, this was quite some time ago. But what I learned back in 1986 has always carried forward with me. People like easy targets.
Now take this fact and apply it to the modern day leftists or liberal. Specifically, environmentalists and protestors.
Do you know why liberals are protesting fracking in the Bakken oil field?
Do you know why liberals are protesting against nuclear energy?
Do you know why liberals are protesting, well....anything they protest?
What they will tell you is that they are doing it for some noble cause or another. To protect the environment. To protect the children. To save the whales. But this is nothing but an outright lie. However, what's really interesting about this lie is that they are telling it not so much to convince you about their nobility, but rather to convince themselves.
And this is where The Destruction Principle comes in.
Understand the single most defining characteristic of a liberal or a leftist is that they are lazy. They do not want to work. They do not want to strive. They want an easy and paid-for life as much as possible.
However, the second most defining characteristic of a liberal or a leftist is their ego. They have to be applauded. They have to worshipped. They have to be doing something that provides them and their ego validation.
Naturally, these two traits are mutually exclusive. If you aren't going to work hard for a living, if you're not going to strive towards something, if you're incapable of rigor, then you will achieve nothing noteworthy and your ego will go unvalidated. However, leftists' egos are so huge and so hungry they inevitably have to "do something," and so, just like my brother did in 1986, they go for easy, but pointless, targets.
Driving a Prius.
Shopping at Whole Foods
All of these things are nothing more than substitutes for hard work, production, self-supportation, and genuine human value. They are nothing more than rituals, no different than rituals performed at a church. They are pointless, they achieve nothing, but they make their religious participants falsely "feel good about themselves."
However, where the "destruction" in The Destruction Principle comes in is where you have your environmentalists or your most vain and vile leftists. For example, if some dolt wants to buy a Prius and smugly put their MPG on a vanity plate, they aren't really hurting anybody. They are destroying nothing. But if you have protestors who are going to shut down the Keystone XL pipeline, then you are costing people their lives, jobs, not to mention economic growth for the country. You are causing destruction.
And that's The Destruction Principle.
In short, The Destruction Principle is:
"Worthless people, in order to validate their egos, but avoid any real work, will take the production, success, and work of others, villainize it, protest against it, and ultimately destroy it. Not because other people's production, success and work was evil, but because it is easier to destroy other people's work that already exists, rather that build up something of genuine value yourself."
Now, understand just what negative-NPV-humans these vermin are.
They are so arrogant, so lazy, so full of themselves, they have no problems ruining the lives of others, just so they can feel good about themselves.
They are so vile, they don't mind holding up the economic growth of the entire nation, as long as they can go and protest against "global warming," "patriarchy," or any one of the fashionable leftists
Worse, they are so evil they would rather destroy something that is good, because it's easier than working hard and producing something of value themselves.
Again, look at the Keystone pipeline. To build that would take engineers, chemists, accountants, and skilled tradesmen. But look at just one of the key opponents to it. A worthless crusader who is deathly afraid of real work, never held a real job in her life, and will ruin the lives of millions to avoid it.
Now I know I receive some criticism and guff for simplifying things. But it really is that simple. People who don't like hard work or math are the cause of the majority of our problems today. People who major in worthless degrees are declaring to the world they don't want to work hard, but still want to be in charge. And when you throw in ego and The Destruction Principle, you have a veritable mental-cancer that infects people, has them attack others, and slowly kill off the body known as society. I just wanted to identify and define the problem/symptom as that is the first step to solving problems.
Enjoy the decline!
