I often like to point out the hypocrisy of the left. Of course, that would include most things the left preaches, and that would keep me far too busy. I could point out such inconsistencies ad nauseam. But to save on time, I will keep my observations brief.
It occurred to me this morning while taking a shower (a good place to do some thinking; not quite as good as the toilet, but still rather useful) that the left believes that man (sorry…don’t want to be politically incorrect), or rather, humankind, is essentially good. They believe that a utopian society is possible. They believe that a whole nation, and even a whole world, can exist peacefully in a communal, one-world, borderless, open society.
This idealistic way of thinking, however, quickly falls apart because at the same time the left preaches this childlike fantasy nonsense, they also admit that if only the greedy, corrupt, evil corporations and billionaires would give up their imperialistic power, a beautiful world of peace and harmony and dolphins and unicorns would open up to us all. While they believe people are naturally good, they acknowledge that there are people who are not.
The left thinks that man, oops, I mean, humankind, cannot be trusted to be good on their own. They must be monitored and regulated by the government to make sure they are good. The left believes that if left to our own devises, we would all be greedy, heartless, brutes who don’t care about other people, who won’t help other people.
So which is it? You can’t have it both ways. Either man is capable of a harmonious communal society (man is good) or there are evil, corrupt people who oppress the rest of us (man is bad). If you say that’s much too black and white, then ask yourself what it is you believe. Do you believe that man should be free to be good and bad, that he should be free to fail?
If goodness can only be achieved through governmental regulation, then it’s not really goodness. And if bad exists and cannot be avoided or snuffed out completely, then a utopian society is not possible. And if you don’t want utopia, if you don’t want a one-world, borderless, open society, then what the hell are you doing on the left?
