Honest debate proves economic liberty is vastly superior to socialistic slavery

The Left has to hide it’s clearly inferior ideology of socialism behind Lies and obfuscation simply because it has no other choice.

Let us present the situation to an objective audience. Who would seem to have the better position, those who can debate out in the open with factual arguments. Or those have to hide behind lies, obfuscation and word mutation?

Consider that most people innately known that something is wrong when a person or group has to hide certain aspects of their ideology. They know that those holding back usually have something to hide. While there are those who take on the pretence of being open and honest, they always seem to dance around the truth. Throwing out a red herring here or obfuscation there or when cornered on a precise point of logic unabashedly prevaricate like seasoned professionals.

Compare that to those who can openly articulate the case for their system without pretext or deception. No system is ever perfect, but the side that is honest about the features outweighing any faults is clearly superior.

Open and Honest beats Deceptive and Dishonest any day of the week.

It’s an almost subliminal message being propagated by the Left, that Economic Liberty has somehow been massively discredited and is on it’s way out, with their base ideology being ‘Inevitable’. Of course, this sounded better back in 1848 when it was first articulated, before Socialism accumulated a staggering butcher’s bill of over 100 Million dead. But such are the proclivities of the Left, with Economic Liberty supposedly on the brink of collapse, while the Pro-Liberty Right shakes in fear of the Left’s 500-year-old-ideas.

At present the debate is over the merits of Economic Liberty versus Socialism. Or more correctly speaking between Economic Liberty (or it’s pejorative label from the Left: Capitalism) and an ersatz version of Socialism as decreed by the nation’s Left. This is typical of their usual word mutation game.

In order to even have a toehold in the debate, they have to pretend that the massive welfare state systems of small, culturally homogenous countries supported by natural resources and minimal defense spending needs are somehow ‘socialist’. Or they make spurious claims that if someone, somewhere made the claim that a government program is or was ‘Socialist’ and it’s still chugging along, then by Jove, it proves that socialism ‘works’…. somehow. Meanwhile, they deny that true socialist or communist nations are really socialist or communist.

The debate between Economic Liberty and Socialistic Slavery.

We on the Pro-Liberty Right are open and honest about our ideology of Economic Liberty. It is a system that has lifted mankind out of the mud to soaring heights of progress. While the Left obsesses over non-issues of income inequality Economic Liberty has elevated the poor from misery simply because they are a vast customer base. It has created vast amounts of wealth out of nothing, advancing mankind to untold reaches.

Can the Left make any claims of what their system of collective misery has done for mankind?

Leftists love to keep up the pretence that they are working for the betterment of everyone. Meanwhile the practical reality of their base ideology has the exact opposite result. They have no qualms over exploiting the words of freedom and advancement, falsely labeling themselves as ‘Liberal’ or ‘Progressive’ while depriving people of Liberty and working overtime to retard the advancement of civilisation.

Compare the practical realities of Economic Liberty and Socialism – which is superior?

One of the Left’s favourite dodges is to compare the theoretical promise of their 500-year-old ideas to the practical reality of modern-day Economic Liberty. This is one of the ways they work desperately to stay in the game. It’s akin to comparing a known political candidate to an unnamed opponent. Comparing theoretical ideals to practical reality avoids those pesky issues as to whether their system works or not as well, keeping it’s necessary evil of the application of force and mass murder off the table.

In practical reality, there is no comparison between the success of Economic Liberty and the %100 Failure rate of Socialism, which is why they avoid them like the plague. When was the last time the Left compared the practical reality of true socialist nations to the overwhelming success of Economic Liberty? The Left is completely outclassed in these comparisons, to use the colloquial term, they aren’t even in the same ballpark.

One last thought: Why isn’t Socialistic Slavery on the chopping block?

The current ‘buzz’ in Leftist circles is their contention to put an end to Economic Liberty (or it’s pejorative label from the Left: Capitalism).  Why isn’t the antithesis of this concept being contemplated?

Wouldn’t it make sense to keep the system that works while discarding that which doesn’t? Consider the question put to the audience at the top of this article. Wouldn’t it make more sense to conserve the system that is superior as well as open and honest about it’s faults and features?

It is plain as day that the Left cannot be honest about it’s base ideology. It should also be manifestly obvious that it’s collectivist system of social slavery does not work. So shouldn’t that be the system to be discarded?

PragerU: Does race really matter?

PragerU Does race really matter

Leftwing talk about race frightens Dennis Prager and it should frighten you as well. There is a dangerous precedent being set by the left that is creating division where it no longer exists. Unfortunately, it definitely did exist in the recent past, but modern America generally does not look at race as much of an indicator anymore EXCEPT when the left makes it an issue. This is ironic, of course, because in their quest to supposedly eliminate racism, the left tends to make race a bigger issue than it needs to be.

We hear about cultural appropriations, certain races whose lives apparently matter more than others, and the deconstruction of our nation’s history based upon cultural norms from the time that are no longer acceptable now. Yes, many of America’s first people were racist. Some even owned slaves. Even after slavery was abolished, we experienced racial divides that continued through the civil rights movement all the way into modern times. But today, those divides are no longer as prominent. A black President was elected with a strong number of non-black voters behind him. Congress is more racially and sexually diverse than ever in our country’s history. We have more CEOs of major corporations who aren’t just “old white guys” than ever.

We’re crowdfunded. We need your help. Please donate today.

America is making strong strides to effectively eliminate racial inequality, but the push to keep the divide as wide as possible isn’t coming from the general conservative side of the political aisle. Yes, there are white supremacists who claim a portion of the right-leaning mantle, but they are infinitesimal compared to the standard masses of conservatives who have seen beyond race. The real cultural and racial divides are being perpetuated by the left, and in particular by our leaders from the Democratic Party who cannot have a future if they do not play the race card incessantly.

This video by PragerU shows the stark difference between Dennis Prager and Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA). As she vies for votes by playing the race card, Mr. Prager calls out the real racism in America that’s coming from the left.

What are the spiritual beings in the Bible?

What are the spiritual beings in the Bible

Most people, even those who haven’t read the Bible, are likely familiar with it enough to know there are two primary groups being discussed: humans and God in his three forms, also known as the Trinity. Those who have read the Bible realize there are other groups of being as well. These are the “spiritual beings” of the Bible – angels, demons, and everything in between.

While I don’t always agree with everything taught by the folks at The Bible Project, most of their perspectives are excellent. More importantly, they’re able to break down the complex elements of the Bible and retell the stories in ways anyone can understand.

They’ve begun a new series focused on spiritual beings that I’m very hopeful will be enlightening and exegetically accurate. This is an important teaching to understand. While I’d recommend reading one of Michael Heiser’s books on the subject, those who aren’t ready for lengthy research should at least take a look at this or other teachings. It’s an important topic, one that gets much less attention than it deserves.

As we continue to work on our Principalities and Powers Podcast, it behooves us that more people are aware of the forces that we don’t necessarily see that are at work around us. This is why we’re hopeful about this new series from The Bible Project.

The Catholic-Mulsim fraternity deal is anti-Biblical

The Catholic-Mulsim fraternity deal is anti-Biblical

Before I get into the meat of this subject, it’s important to be perfectly clear about one thing. This is not an anti-Catholic perspective. I not only love my Catholic brothers and sisters who follow the Bible and embrace Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. I’m actually related to a great deal of them. Yes, the majority of my large family on my mother’s side is Catholic. Spent the day with about a dozen of them yesterday.

With that stated, the leadership of the Catholic Church and the direction of the Vatican are so far off course, it’s odd that so few are actually calling them out for what is arguably the most anti-Biblical action they’ve ever officially taken. As bad as the action was, I’m more concerned that it’s not getting nearly the press it deserves.

I’m referring to the agreement signed by Pope Francis and Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayeb, the head of Sunni Islam’s most prestigious seat of learning. In this agreement, the truth of the God of the Bible is intermingled with the falsehood of the god of the Quran, Allah. Moreover, the call for the unification of religions in a fraternity of secular peace is disturbing, not because we’re against peace but because the call to make peace is done with an understanding that or beliefs are supposed to be secondary to the collective good in this world. Lastly and most disturbingly, there’s a line in the document that is drawing some ire, though not nearly as much as Bible-believing Christians might expect:

“The pluralism and the diversity of religions, color, sex, race and language are willed by God in his wisdom, through which he created human beings.”

The wording here is very careful. They’re trying not to say God willed other religions as a path to find Him, but when read in context with the rest of the document, that’s exactly what they’re trying to imply. They’ve put Islam on equal footing with the Judeo-Christian religions by insinuating God and Allah are the same entity.

They are not.

Defenses of the document seem to focus on two notions. First, in regards to the controversial line above, they’re saying that religious diversity is similar to sex, race, and other things that are willed by God because many are inherently predisposed to follow the religions of the culture surrounding them. Their second argument is that God wants his children to find Him, and if that path must go through Islam or Hindu or any other religion, so be it.

This is heretical teaching. One must do some pretty aggressive hermeneutical gymnastics to say that since God created everything, and other religions fall into the category of being included in “everything,” then God created the other religions. As a loving God, surely He didn’t limit which people could find Him and live eternal life, right?

The Bible cannot be more clear on one important fact: there is only one way to everlasting life: belief and worship of Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. The document insinuates Islam is a path to salvation since, hey, they believe that Jesus was a very important prophet, so they’re not totally wrong. If it leads them to Christ through a non-traditional path, so be it.

This is a very dangerous road, one that harms the way the Catholic Church leads its people. It’s time for Bible-believing Catholics to speak out against the heretical teaching their leaders have embraced.
