It is time to admit that public education operates like a planned economy. It’s a bureaucratic system where everybody’s role is spelled out in advance, and there are few incentives for innovation and productivity. It’s not a surprise when a school system doesn’t improve. It more resembles a Communist economy than our own market economy.
With the Dems having been allowed to be successful in their coup and their taking over the federal government, we’ve entered a time when Americans have to pay attention to how the sausage is made. We, the People, are the ones that the Dems – playing the parts of Sweeney Todd and Mrs. Lovett – want and plan to grind up in order to feed us to their constituencies.
Of course, this shouldn’t come as a surprise at all. The Dems actions, culminating in the illegitimate farce that was passed off as the 2020 elections, played out like a penny dreadful.
In 1867 John Stuart Mill said, “Bad men need nothing more to compass their ends, than that good men should look on and do nothing.” And Reverend Charles F. Aked, Edmund Burke, and other worthies have, over the course of centuries, voiced similar truths. So, why aren’t we listening and acting upon these words?
We, the true-born and rightly-raised People of the great land of the United States of America hold both the lions’ share of its true wealth and the vast majority of its arms – the former being why the Left and their minorities are at war with us; the latter why said war hasn’t quite “gone hot” yet. There is neither reason nor plausible excuse for our toleration of our domestic enemies’ actions, agenda, or very existence.
A very conservative estimate places the number of America’s militia who are already under arms and capable of immediate operations at somewhat above 50 million souls. 50+ million! The Left could field perhaps 1/5th that number. Indeed, 50 million militiamen is a host so vast and so pervasive as to even render the force capable by the armed services moot despite their overwhelming technological and organizational advantages.
Even a bare 3% of of our numbers would be enough to do the job, defend our nation, culture, and People, which is good because 3% active, combative involvement seems to be the historic norm and has held true across millennia and cultural differences – e.g., Muhammad couldn’t do any better than 3% either 🙄 But the important point is that even that 3% would be sufficient, even in worst-case scenarios.
So, why DO we look on and do nothing? Are we – and I’m honest enough to include myself in this – not Good Men? Do we not love, honor, respect, and cherish the nation and culture our ancestors carved out of the wilderness for us and our progeny?
Sure, it’d seem like a utopia ,,, if you tipped your head and squinted or wore blinders so that you didn’t see all the chaos, crime, and race riots. A nation with little or no law enforcement isn’t a nation anymore; it’s just a dystopian anarchy with no real future, which may be what the Left and their Blacks want.
One thing though – while the cartoon describes the whole #DefundThePolice movement as a Far Left political position, it’s now the mainstream position of the Democrats.
Our parents and grandparents lived in more optimistic times than we do today. They saw the future as bright with possibilities and filled with the benefits of our rapidly advancing technology.
The Astounding World of the Future
The future is now. OK, actually it’s last week sometime because we’ve “come farther” than what is shown in this video. In any event, feel free to quietly weep because those bright-eyed visionaries of the early-to-mid 20th century were so very right in their predictions and so very wrong about how we would make them come true.
