Understanding the Left

 Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.  C.S. Lewis

A person who knows that they are doing evil for their own benefit, might, one day look in the mirror and say, "Am I hurting people for my own greed?"  A progressive will never suffer that inspection.  They will never ask:


  1. Jesse Kelly:

    "America isn’t losing its standing in the world by accident. Cities aren’t releasing murderers to kill again by accident. We didn’t take in 2 million illegals this year by accident. The destruction is intentional. Wake up and grow up. This is all planned.

    You have to understand the true evil of communism and how the communist looks at the world if you’re going to have any chance at stopping them. These people believe everything you love is terrible and needs to be destroyed so they can rebuild the world into their utopia.

    When a felon gets out with no bail and murders someone in New York City, the communist who let him out doesn’t have regrets. He doesn’t see any problem at all. He knew that guy would kill again. That’s what he wanted. So you would feel afraid.

    When America does foreign policy “blunder” that helps our enemies, it’s not a mistake. It’s not some “miscalculation”. The American communist looks at America the same way our enemies do: An evil place that needs to be knocked down a peg or two.

    When America is flooded with tens of millions of illegal immigrants, the communist knows it will eventually break the system. He also knows these people have no mooring to our founding and what we are. That’s why he wants them here. It’s less work for him.

    On and on and on. Every issue. The destruction is intentional. They’re not trying to fix the house like you are. This isn’t an argument over paint color. You’re worried about the paint. He’s in the living room with a bottle of lighter fluid and a box of matches."

  2. My take is that the Left is engaged in *1984* style doublethink. They love us and want to benevolently make us do the (politically) correct thing for our own good, AND they hate us and want to maliciously hurt us and make us and suffer.

  3. It might be more accurate to refer to "a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of humanity". The Nazis and Communists regarded their mass murders as acts of heroic virtue on behalf of mankind.
