There is a time and place for those angered by the raid on Trump's home, that time is November, and the place is the ballot box. The Democrats will do anything to marginalize and demonize Trump and his supporters. We must not be baited into acting as they would, as demonstrated during the summer of 2020.
Postmodernism is a philosophy that refutes the notion of objective reality. It refutes the Enlightenment notion that Man advances his situation mainly though reason. Enlightenment philosophies are the basis of modern Western democracies in general, and of the United States in particular. Enlightenment thinking stands in the way of establishing a collectivist Utopia, and so must be supplanted in the body-politic by the post-modern viewpoint. Postmodernism can be said then, to be the philosophic means to that collectivist end.
A New third party? Reporting by Sharyl Attkisson and Tim Reid for Reuters talks about a new third party called the "Forward" party to compete with the Republicans and Democrats that is due to launch this fall. Is this the real deal, or just a party to run spoiler candidates against one party or the other? Why hasn't America had a successful third party?
The pain felt by the average American-- the high cost of household items, energy, gas, etc., is a pain not shared by the collectivist elites whose policies caused these problems. Our need to be free, to control our own destinies is in conflict with the elites' need for evermore power.
So, why are so many made to suffer for so little benefit to them? There are many reasons for sure-- foolish belief in Utopian schemes, lust for power, and greed on the part of the global elites. These people who occupy the top rungs of industry, academia, and politics are insulated from the effects of their questionable economic and environmental theories. They are not affected by inflation. They themselves will feel neither cold, heat, nor hunger in any amount that might make them uncomfortable. They are, in short, not us.
Contrary to what some have said, the Dobbs and West Virginia rulings are victories, not defeats for our democracy and our republic. They put these matters into the hands of the legislatures and the people where they can be debated and voted on. What's that thing called? You know-- where people get a say on how important issues are handled? Oh, yeah, it's called DEMOCRACY.
The Left has pressed and sadly, achieved a level of statism approaching economic fascism, causing supply shortages, rampant inflation, and an energy crisis. Yet despite this, America remains the greatest country the world has ever seen. Our Constitution has so far proven as a bulwark from the worst of the Left's progressive polices, even on occasion, rolling back their excesses.
The Court back in '73 basically cobbled together a right that was not in the Constitution. Critics of Roe v Wade have long held that the Court made a bad ruling that required a lot of legal and intellectual gymnastics to be decided the way it was.
The economic component of fascism was the ends to which the violence, and terror were but a means. The point of the marches, pogroms, and demagoguery was to establish an economic system totally under the heal of the ruling party, the state.
Funny, these leaders are talking about having fewer guns, but not fewer mass-murderers. It's almost as if they were trying to solve a problem other than the legions of psychopaths our upside-down secular society has produced that commit these heinous crimes.
