  1. FX Phillips Says:

    Since none of us is “equal” in talent, interest or initiative and the condition of humanity is in constant flux the only way to make equality reality is to artificially hinder or help certain groups or individuals.

    This by definition requires arbitrary decisions informed by Sowell’s “vision of the anointed” who see themselves as benevolent of bent and superior in wisdom to the organic systems of culture and economy ie superior to the wisdom and knowledge of millions.

    History is replete with the failures of such egoists.

    Quite true, FX, and something I’ve posted about before.

    Whenever one man or some oligarchy truly believes that they know better what is good for others and is allowed to be in positions where they can enforce their beliefs upon the people injustice and tyranny follow, though wearing a generally kindly face.

    To which: A famous and perhaps overused quote by CS Lewis.

    “Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may 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.”

    They do so because in their “religion of state” they are justified and sanctified. The fact that they have to inflict harm in order to do good is lost on them in their misplaced self righteous indignation. Because they have successively and successfully gamed the system so that advancement can only come through state approval any who succeed outside that rubric must be destroyed lest the proles think ther is a better way.

    They are as rigid and dogmatic as the most devout muslim.This why so much of their agendas overlap.

    …they can enforce their beliefs upon the people injustice and tyranny follow, though wearing a generally kindly face.
