One of the most amusing things about the left is their absolute certainty that they know better than everyone else and that if only they ran the circus, everything would be perfect.
I’m not 100 percent sure where this insanity comes from, except for saying that it’s common in philosopher-kings. I.e. people well enough off that they have no idea how most people live, where food comes from, etc. Take one of those people and cram their heads full of theoretical knowledge. Particularly if you tell it to them as the revealed truth (as science is taught in most of our schools) and voila, someone who thinks they know everything and how everything should be done.
Which gets us to the left’ present attempt to choke Western Civilization which, granted, has been as evil and murderous as EVERY OTHER CIVILIZATION IN THE HISTORY OF MANKIND, but has excelled on the good side of human civilization: namely, getting everyone fed, clothed, and living with a modicum of dignity. Not perfectly, of course, and there have been some truly disgusting periods, but by and large Western Civilization has made the world better.
However, mind you, it’s not perfect. It’s also not entirely contained within the cavernous emptiness of the average lefty’s mind. So, of course, off with its head.
And the left is absolutely, thoroughly convinced that it can “build back better.” That the system in its mind will translate perfectly into the outside world and run amazingly.
Well, as we have found in the last year, the left literally doesn’t know where its food comes from; can’t understand, oh, the relationship between rent and home ownership; between GDP and currency, between– None of it. They know so little about the real world they just don’t know what they don’t know.
We live in an amazing era. If I wanted to build a house with my own hands tomorrow, there is enough in youtube for me to go for a reasonable facsimile.
And yet, I guarantee to you that anything I built would have some major problems, simply because I don’t know what I don’t know, so I don’t know where to look for specific details of construction.
And mind you humans know pretty well how to build houses. We’ve been doing it for a very long time.
And yet any socialist/communist country manages to build houses that crumble while still under construction. I’m not even making this up.
Yet, our left in possession of a Marxist ideology that has no contact with the real world and confers nothing beyond unearned superiority, thinks it can take down the most complex interconnected web of civilization the world has ever known, and “build back better.”
Because these people, who can’t understand that we see them partying without masks, or that voter fraud was obvious to anyone not blinded by partisan faith, think they have the knowledge to not only redesign world civilization but make it perfect.
We all read the story of the garden and how humans were tempted with the idea that they’d be like gods. I remember thinking that was completely insane.
I was right. I’m seeing it happening before my eyes, and it’s completely insane.
There are many versions of this story. None of them ends well. But the willfully blind philosopher kings will not see.
Hold on to the sides of the boat. The water is going to get choppy.
But be not afraid. I’d bet us, or for that matter my cats against these “world encompassing intellects.”
At least my cats can tell their food dish from their litter box.
Be not afraid, but be prepared. The crumbling is going to be sudden, short and horrific.
And afterwards? Well, we’ll build back. Better? Without philosopher kings. That’s for sure. But with human hands, which means flawed, and with problems and–
Let’s make it the best we can.
That’s all anyone can do. Make it the best we can, with respect for the individual, and the understanding that we are not gods.
Until then, keep your clothes and weapons where you can find them in the dark. And stay alert. The life you save could be your own.
