FIGHTING EVIL, NOT JUST FOR SUPERHEROES
THE LEFT’S MOST POPULAR MANTRA—“SOCIAL JUSTICE”
Why is fighting Evil in the world and protecting the most innocent and helpless among us never the primary goal of the Left?
It’s not even their second or third place choice.
Women and children are being raped, brutalized, and murdered, men beheaded, in strategically key areas of the world that we once, through great sacrifice, had freed and stabilized, but since betrayed and abandoned, our retreat led with arrogance and impunity by President Obama’s Administration.
Where’s the “social justice” in this?
And where are America’s (mostly Leftist) Feminists? Nothing like what is going on in the countries of these former US allies in the Middle East against women and girls has ever taken place on this kind of scale in America. So where are our scrappy, in-your-face Feminists and those who claim they place “social justice” and “equality” (whatever that means) above every other human value in their political quiver?
HARNESSING THE “USEFUL IDIOTS,” THE PERFECT POLITICAL CONSTITUENCY
(Look up the often misunderstood political term for “useful idiot.” It may surprise you.)
The Left spends almost all of its time and energy promoting “social justice,” “equality,” and, of course, “the environment.” And “choice” regarding the right to “abortion” (such a detached, even indifferent, label) of a living, feeling human being. “Freedom to choose!” they shout. But of course that “choice” is never extended to the unborn child. Social “justice” and “equality” only goes so far, it seems.
But we know the reason, don’t we? The most innocent and helpless among us don’t vote. More so, they can’t be harnessed by the Left as a political constituency, or shackled and hamstrung as an ignorant and manipulated dependent class.
So, you say I sound a bit cynical? Well, I’m not by nature, but fighting evil tends to make you a realist very quickly.
THE ESSENCE OF THE EVIL WE FACE
As a Conservative my priorities are simple: The greatest dangers we face today in the world are, at their root, Evil. Be aware, I’m using Evil as a proper noun here, as a very real entity, the way it should be used. It is real. It has taken hold of much of our world. It preys on people—people I love and admire. It changes them into something they were never meant to be. It infests the world’s totalitarian movements and too many of the world’s self-serving leaders. It targets the weak and the vulnerable. It makes men into demons, walking devils who hurt people, innocent people, and who exploit the defenseless and feeble for personal gain.
There are many levels or degrees of Evil in the world.
But the one thing they all hold in common: They desolate and destroy. They exploit for their own gain, no matter how their actions injure, betray, weaken or corrupt others. It doesn’t matter. Evil is in it for itself.
That’s the one true identifier of genuine Evil.
The possible damage that is being done to the environment in parts of our world, or the fact that everyone’s job does not pay the same, or that some people have more material possessions than others, does not worry me on the same level as Evil run amok.
And it shouldn’t you. Here’s why:
The Left among us has, early on (for nearly a century now) discovered that in a democracy it can fashion a political agenda that will not only appear to be “charitable and generous,” but more importantly, it will be an agenda that always creates a dependent class, and a loyal constituency, that will not only become hopelessly hooked on government “gifts” and handouts, but also religiously, even rabidly, loyal at election time.
Again, this is not new.
THE LEFTIST TOTALITARIAN TRADITION
The Left, at least since Carl Marx, Vladimir Lenin, and America’s own John Dewey, President Woodrow Wilson, FDR, and others, have understood that the promotion of “social justice,” “equality,” and in recent years “environmentalism” are the very finest of political wedge-issues. These are the deadliest arrows in the quiver of Class Warfare, and a political sledgehammer used against free-market capitalists, begun by Marx and Lenin, and refined today by the Democratic Party, the standard bearers of the modern-day Leftist Totalitarian Tradition.
Every single issue today promoted by the Democratic Party is about control. Controlling you.
More to the point, these Leftist political arrows allow an ever-ballooning federal government to tax the life out of our nation’s Producers in order to then pay off their constituent voters. It’s the perfect shakedown. Again, it’s not new. But what’s so amazing is how few actually recognize it as such.
THE TRUTH: WHAT “PROGRESSIVE” REALLY MEANS
The Left, at its heart, is a Totalitarian Movement, has been from its inception, when it was called “progressivism,” though “progressive” only in that it wants to avoid the kind of disruptive, even deadly, Bolshevik and Maoist-style revolution-by-force, as carried out by the former Soviet Union and by Communist China, where their version of “fundamental transformation” ended in the mass murder of tens of millions of their otherwise loyal citizens. The Left in America today wants to boil the frog (you) slowly, incrementally, so that you’ll barely notice…until you’re cooked.
The Left (what we call “Desolators”) has always sought to bring on their own “social justice” version of a social and economic utopia at all cost. And the cost—in human dignity, honor, even in lives—has been far too high, regardless of whether they could ever possibly succeed, which history says they cannot.
STEALING YOUR FREEDOM OF WILL AND THOUGHT
Of course, the Left soon discovers that their utopian dreams can never be accomplished without building a massive, intrusive, even totalitarian government (think George Orwell’s “Big Brother”) that is not only incredibly inefficient and corrupt, but in the end tyrannical, then deadly. The Left, even if they haven’t yet figured it out (most have, btw, and don’t care) can only accomplish their ends by shackling you and me, by tearing up the Bill of Rights and the Constitution and forcing their will upon every citizen. In the end, if they succeed, they will rob those in their grasp of their precious free-will, their freedom to choose, their individual agency.
HERE’S THE DEAL
So how does that equate with fighting Evil in the world? A massive totalitarian and ultimately corrupt “Nanny State,” Big Brother, Big Government (whatever name you attach to it) by its nature ALWAYS becomes the essence of Evil. In its vain attempt to force “social justice” on its citizens, it robs them of their dignity, their work ethic, their independence, and ultimately their morality. (Look at ANY totalitarian regime in world history.) More so, such a government becomes so obsessed with controlling its own citizens that it abandons its responsibilities to its neighbors in the world, its allies and friends.
It becomes the ultimate deadbeat, undependable, not worth listening to or emulating, a worthless “friend.” To many former allies today…we’re already there.
That’s precisely what we face today, handed to you by a Leftist, ideologically-driven and motivated Presidential Administration, determined at any cost to “fundamentally transform the United States of America,” even at the price of abandoning our global friends to the brutalities of what’s truly Evil in the world.
SO, YOU SAY: “THE WORLD IS SCARY AND UNPREDICTABLE. WE BEST LEAVE IT ALONE AND WORRY ABOUT OUR OWN PROBLEMS AT HOME FIRST.”
Believe me, I get what you are saying.
But, simply, we can’t, not in certain strategically vital regions of the world. This is PRECISELY why Russia has moved into the Middle East region in force, with China sliding in, all allying with and supporting the terrorist-backing nation of Iran. This is a classic power-play, designed to control the world hydrocarbons (oil and gas) markets by forcing up the price of oil, thereby benefiting primarily Russia and Iran. This New Axis sees Iran as the ultimate power-broker in the Middle East and in control, inevitably, of the lion’s share of the oil. Considering Iran’s apocalyptic theology—some pretty scary prophecies their leaders are citing—this is the most dangerous development of our time.
If Iran gets its way—and both Russia and China are backing Iran for good reason—America and the Free World are about to be squeezed like we’ve never been squeezed before. This will not only affect your job, your freedoms, but mostly your security, as Iran, ISIS, and others use their newly won wealth and power to step up terror attacks on a variety of targets, the most important (to them) is the “Great Satan” (you).
YEAH, BUT WHAT ABOUT “GLOBAL WARMING” AND “SOCIAL JUSTICE” AND “SPREADING THE WEALTH”? AREN’T THESE THE TRULY CRITICAL ISSUES OF OUR DAY?
You’re kidding, right?
If you’re in fact serious, then the Left has been far more effective with your re-conditioning, even brainwashing, than you probably ever thought. Time for an intervention.
THE INSANITY OF POLITICAL CORRECTNESS RUN AMOK
“Global Warming,” “Social Justice,” “Spreading the Wealth” and so-called “Equality.” These are NOT the issues we should be worried about, not in America, not today. There is a far greater enemy silently infiltrating every corner of our American homeland, brought in through our internet, TV, and movies, infiltrating our pop culture and corrupting our political parties, our schools, and many of our leaders. The Evil is also growing and mutating abroad, too, and it’s got you in its sights.
It’s called Evil, and it hurts people in so many ways.
The Bible has much to say on this topic: “Ye who love the Lord, hate evil,” (Psalm 97:10) and “Through thy precepts (God’s truth) I get understanding; therefore, I hate every false way…” (Psalm 119:104). There are countless others.
THE GOOD FIGHT
After a long life of seeing and experiencing much, I have determined to focus my resources on this and only this enemy. Every other so-called “foe” is too often a false flag, raised by someone with a personally rewarding, and in some cases, twisted agenda. Every other so-called “threat” today is but a dream, a mirage, by comparison.
Now is the time to focus, and then fight back. Don’t let the Desolators out there distract you from what’s real and truly important today.
Fighting Evil is not just for Superheroes.
It’s for regular ones, too.
