Liberty has never come from the government. Liberty has always come from the subjects of government. The history of liberty is the history of resistance. The history of liberty is a history of the limitation of governmental power, not the increase of it.
This about sums up the rank and malodorous hypocrisy of Freshman Economics as it is now taught in the reeking cesspits of Leftism that are the vast majority of what are called colleges and universities in America.
Then, this is what had to happen since we allowed these institutions to degenerate to the point that they effectively and tacitly, though rarely overtly, run all professorial candidates and all course syllabi through their departments of Intersectionality, Gender, and Racial Justice for preapproval.
Americans don’t want everything for free; we just want to be free – free from governmental tyranny, free from the oikophobic oppression of the #CancelCulture, and free from the real, existential threat posed by the violent rabble of #BlackLivesMatter and their enablers and fellow travelers, #Antifa. Democrats and other non-Americans seem to have opposing desires.
Yes, their sort seems to have diametrically opposed desires. They seem to want anything that they want to have to be free. This is a false belief. Democrats and other non-Americans existing within our nation’s borders won’t settle for getting whatever they want for free. Free isn’t good enough for them; they want Americans to pay for it all.
Always remember that nothing that that sort ever gets is enough unless they’re getting it harms and/or disadvantages Americans. It’s not about rising themselves up; it’s about tearing Americans down.
If you’ve ever wondered why so many of the entitled, mis-raised Millennial Snowflakes have turned to Socialism, you might want to blame race or, rather, the Left’s rendition of racial politics. While perhaps counterintuitive, the SJWs’ ideas of “race relations” seems like a good bet for being a large part of why this has happened.
Understand two things: people in general are fairly self-centered and self-serving, with the Millennials being more than a bit more so; and the Left’s whole agenda when it comes to non-Whites is giving them Whites’ money. This simply means that these Millennials have been drawn to the only political-economic system that promises to give them money and give the non-Whites money.
It’s really just a way for them to get a piece of the pie that their side wants to give to others while not triggering an attack from the SJWs.
That’s pretty much how Socialism was and Democratic Socialism is. The later is just the former with the energy, acrobatics, and attention seeking so prevalent among Millennials. In the end, the results are exactly the same and exactly as bad.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the darling of the Millennial Snowflakes, Crybullies, SJWs, and all the Socialist grifters is guiding the Democrats further and further to the Left. The way things are going, she and those like her are going to guide the Dems right of the cliff of either irrelevancy, civil war, or some combination of both.
