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.

Collective Tyranny

Posted in Politics on October 19th, 2014

It is easy to think of the evils of America’s domestic enemies, the Liberal, Progressives, and their minority tenants, to be solely or primarily assaults upon American citizens’ natural right to individual liberty. Yet, while they do repeatedly attack some our our Divinely ordained individual rights, mostly those that could be disruptive, e.g., those of defense and speech, these Leftist enemies far more often attack American communities and various and sundry collective endeavors. This is because our domestic enemies are devoutly loyal and faithful to their own collective, the State.

For this reason the Liberal and Progressives are not opposed to individual liberty because most individual liberties, far from being the effect of emancipation from the power of the State, are, in point of fact, a key precondition of the State’s power. In the twisted minds of the Left the State must be the penultimate, preferably only, collective agency. They seek a collective tyranny with the state operating in a tyrannical manner to quash any other collective associations.

They do not sek to wage war against the individual; they wage their war against those non-coercive, intermediate institutions which claim the individual’s allegiance: the family, the church, the school, business, and so on and so forth. The Liberals and Progressives demand that an individual be wedded exclusively to the State as an exclusive community, and offer him a certain limited range of freedom in exchange. It is not individual liberty that these would-be tyrannts oppose, but competitors to their authority that they find utterly unacceptable. They do not mind individual freedom; they only mind competitors to the allegiance they require of men. They are willing to give men a long leash, so as long as they and they alone are grasping the other end.

In other words, despite State not being a community, our domestic enemies demand that the State be the only community that is allowed. They know that when people’s lives, hopes, and aspirations are severed from family, church, and vocation, they are an easy prey for the State.

Honest Feminists

Posted in 2014 Election, Politics on September 22nd, 2014

Tread Hard
Tread Hard Upon Liberty & Freedom!

Feminists aren’t particularly associated with honesty. Much like discernment, honesty has never been a core value of feminism. That being said, some small number of the Toxic Wave Feminists are forthright and completely honest.

Remember this in the swiftly approaching 2014 midterm elections. The harridans of Feminism, unable to move their agenda forward any other way, desire to trample and tread upon every single Americans’ individual freedoms and liberties so that they can benefit from State-enforce equality of results and their own personal freedom from any negative consequences of their own choices.
