One can usually find conservative or right wing post on political tags. I had found one and was replying to it; downloading parts of the Declaration of Independence, Bill or Rights and Constitution. I did this to select large parts that can be construed to be under the assaults of conservative interest. Interest wishing in conserving their power and authority over those documents.
The wedge issue right has done well in their very well funded long historical attempt to change the meaning and intentions of the words of those documents.
Unfortunately, I accidentally hit the space bar and for some reason all was lost. It might have been serendipitous to you to shorten this post.
I must note that Mussolini noted that Fascism is actually Corporatism, a collusion of corporate and governmental connections to “set up” society to their benefit. In effect, a kind of corporate socialism. Currently, what passes for democracy here (remember you do not have a “right” to vote) is easy pickings for dominator ideologies that impose systemic hierarchies akin to authoritarian, other than communism’s recent attempts to seduce liberals into a totalitarian control from a master class.
I know we were told we have the right to pursue happiness and all that, but, the dirty work a nation requires to be built, and let wealth display its more godly privilege over the whole, requires some endemic or intrinsic disparities to perpetually exist. The elite privilege that wealth bestows on one becomes mute if there is not a “pyramid” of human and other resources to prop them up. This fact can be so close to personal identities that it is invisible, like the nose on ones face. There but out of sight, and probably not to be drawn attention to.
THE NATURE OF THE NOOSE
A kind of conspiracy then, exist to keep life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness in a perpetually truncated state for those who have less for one reason or another. People go hungry, not just in the world but in America, while someone is buying a solid gold pencil sharpener for someone. A great divide must be both kept in place and seemingly out of sight or reach. Great expense is given to maintain this status quo of privilege.
Steal the money, inherit the land and sell it off, hook or crook or hard work, money makes all with enough of it, equals in their quasi socialist state, the full fruits of society, just for them, often handed to them having nothing to do with merit or hard won sweat of the brow.
Many aspects of our culture are now in contradiction with our founding documents; the right to bear arms for civilians has been rendered a good wedge for the right but a test of stupidity in many respects. Some of that intent was to prevent both external and internal tyranny. Well most “arms” were of limited sorts then.
Do you really think you have the right to your own nuclear weapon? If the government, controlled by who knows who, decides your cherished guns are to be taken, science has now given them many options, you do not have, to get them from you. No need to pry them from ones cold dead fingers. Gas, micro delivery of certain substances, electromagnetic, microwave and other energy weapons (or drugs) will have you gushing to give your guns away, and those of your friends, when the government is so armed. You however will not be. End of one of the second amendments primary intentions. This is just one point.
THE POST OF LIBERALS SOCIALIST TYRANNY
I am responding to a post that mentioned liberals misread the founding documents (actually he said just the Bill of Rights) to enable their socialist agenda to bring tyranny. Where has this person been these last 7 years? Suspension of habeas corpus, political retaliation for truth telling, various scandals that point their way right to the top, that post that said liberals do not respect the Bill of Rights seems to have eyes shut held under the think tanks murky obsessions. I believe it must be in one of those right wing “conservative” bubbles, that only allows one way interpretation in. A conservative “think tank” is (no, not an oxymoron) a bubble making machine, drawing attention away from full human realities.
What is missing from the; all I got Is all mine no matter how I deserve it philosophy? Well not solipsism! The world, life itself, is made up of infinite connections, including our relationships. The now brain washed “individualist” is often walled into an identity that amputates its full human presence and experience from the Whole of Life. And now their are mechanisms in place meant to keep us there.
THE COST OF FREEDOM FROM WHAT?
If you are responsible for poisoning the environment, you don’t want society to hold you accountable? What kind of free nation is that? In the abstract (free for all chaos) it would seem true that the big bad government is taking money out of your pocket, anger and paranoia ensuing. But what you are doing if cutting the tax on you is passing it (the problems) on to future generations where it might well be an exponentially more difficult endeavor to correct? But I get your self righteousness over being forced against your will. But it is your problem that your will is blinded by the “right”.
If I do not contribute to fixing the infrastructures built by much (Oh boy bad word!) collective effort, who will? The foreign nations we are selling them off to? I hope they are trustworthy.
TYRANNY OF THE RIGHT
The so called conservative party just tried, and still can succeed at its permanent majority. What of tyranny then? “K Street” project was to punish businesses that contributed to Democrats! Have you watched the news, have you seen the character of many of these manipulators and hypocrites? Must not have, since a cults myopic perspective still seems to dominate your socialism in liberalism view.
I am saddened by how betrayed so many conservatives have felt about the last alleged group of them in office; laughing at the Bill of Rights, ignoring the Constitution, racking up record bills, endlessly fear mongering, unilaterally breaking treaties (our word!), using the not so free press to push deception as common sense conservatism. Liberals can feel their pain! They have seen their own betrayals by the powers that be and their stranglehold over the definition of “We the People”, and the collective common good implied in that definition of a nation.
There is nothing new about our predicament and state of affairs. Liberals are not to blame nor are conservatives. It is what I call the dark side of ignorance that is served by confusion, apathy, and its heart stopping ideal that understanding can never succeed at human liberation. To that proposition to stop forgiveness, cripple understanding, enable sophistry and ad hominem emotional stimulation to wedge the population into reaction. Darkness is indeed a power to be reckoned with.
Yet strangely, when hearts open, ignorance and confusion can vanish in the Light.
