Mental Libtardation Is A Terrible Thing

Truly, mental libtardation is a terrible thing and should, in my opinion, be officially listed as dangerous mental defect and treated accordingly. Liberals and Progressives should, for their own sake, the sake of any children in their care, and the sake of America as a whole, be officially and legally classified as mentally incompetent.

Unfit For Freedom

Posted in Politics, Society on January 19th, 2015

Much like Truth enslaves more than it frees, Wisdom often brings discomfort rather than peace of mind. This is because much wisdom is unpleasant, especially when it deals with the nature of people.

A case in point where wisdom brings pain instead pleasure…

People unfit for freedom — who cannot do much with it – are hungry for power. The desire for freedom is an attribute of a “have” type of self. It says: leave me alone and I shall grow, learn, and realize my capacities. The desire for power is basically an attribute of a “have not” type of self.

– Eric Hoffer
Working and Thinking on the Waterfront (1969)

Whether he meant to or not, Eric Hoffer aptly summed up the pathology – or, at least, one of the pathologies – of entire cultural demographic in America with this one statement.

And yes! While there are many of all “races” who are to varying degrees unfit for freedom, I am specifically writing of the “Black Community.” They have over the last century and a half proven themselves to be woefully and dangerously unfit for the freedom that they were given.

Of course, not all representatives of Homo sapiens afer in the US are part of the “Black Community.” Many have rejected all or part of that particular culture and assimilated in that of America. That has to be taken into account whenever one speaks in a general manner about the Blacks.

So we are left with two distinct Black populations: Americans who happen to be Black, and the “Black Community.” The latter populace is, by and large, unfit for freedom – especially unrestricted freedom equal to that of the actual citizenry of America.

But sadly, therein lies the rub. Liberty is a basic, natural right and, as such, doesn’t need to be earned. Hence, we cannot rightfully return the “Black Community” to slavery, even if doing so would greatly benefit America and in no small measure materially and existentially benefit those Blacks who were returned to chains.

Rights And Wrongs

Civil Rights And Wrongs

Do not mistake me. I’m too much the student of true history to be one of those who has “white washed” and deified Martin Luther King Jr. The man was so much worse, but also so much more than the comfortable caricature we’ve created of him. Still, that being said, he was so much better than the parasites, grifters, and vermin that rose from his corpse.
