Leftists always promise a paradise, while the results of their socialist agenda are always a disaster, why would anyone want to replicate that?
Take a look at any disaster area and note how it is always similar to end stage socialism.
Chaos, failing infrastructure, shortages, martial law and catastrophic effects are endemic to both situations. While the causes are somewhat different, the results are always the same, so why would anyone want this brought upon their society?
Selling Socialistic Slavery with promises while ignoring the costs.
Leftists are usually long on promises and short on funding sources when trying to sell their societal slavery. They will tout all the freebies without mentioning how they plan on paying for them. Worse yet, they pile promise upon promise of government goodies in a perverse competition to see who can spend the most of other people’s money without stating the source of their largess.
Meanwhile they skip over just how ‘From each according to his abilities’ will work without coercion in a free-society. Never mind that it’ll be impossible to pay for all of the goodies. We’re already $21 Trillion in the hole and the nation’s Socialist Left wants to dig even deeper.
It will be the ‘The Glorious world of next Tuesday’ don’t worry about who is going to foot the bill, they will gladly do it… knowing a bullet scarred wall awaits them if they don’t.
Reality is never to kind to progressive promises of paradise.
But something always gets in the way on the road to paradise. Basic psychological principles show that a behaviour will increase with a reward while a behaviour will decrease when punished. Many will be on board for the free health care, free college, free housing, free childcare and of course, free money. The problem is that someone has to pay for it at some point. Take other people’s money away from them and they will stop working as well. Soon enough, it all looks like a disaster area.
Scandinavian Socialism is a myth.
We can dispense with the ‘Nordic model’ red herring the Left is forever trotting out to somehow ‘prove’ the functionality of socialism. Small, culturally homogenous Scandinavian countries that can fund large welfare states with funds from natural resources and without the need for defense spending fail as proof that collectivism can work. Most have higher ratings in liberty than the states, and some have stated flat out that they aren’t socialist.
Sorry Leftists, the ‘Mixed economy’ myth also proves socialism doesn’t work.
Then there is the ‘Mixed economy’ dodge that ironically proves the opposite of what it’s supposed to prove. Socialistic Slavery is very much akin to a poison in a biological system with higher dosages being ever more harmful. Socialism retards economic activity, with higher dosages having increased adverse effects. Rather than proving socialism can work, it proves the opposite.
A living being can survive with a certain amount of poison, just as a healthy economy can survive the societal poison of socialism, but that’s hardly an argument to increase the dosage. Eventually, both would succumb to the poison, so it would only make sense to flush it out of the system instead of making the situation far worse with more of the same.
Leftists promise paradise and it never comes to pass.
To hear it from the Left, their incredible ideology will usher in a Utopia of inestimable proportions. Free healthcare, free tuition, free income, free housing, free childcare, etc. etc. Never mind who is going to pay for all of this free stuff, everyone will dance and sing while unicorns prance around over rainbows in a perfect progressive paradise.
The reality of Socialism is quite different, resembling the short-term situation of a disaster area.
Anyone familiar with disaster situations and areas controlled by the Left cannot help but notice that they are eerily similar. While the causes are slightly different, the results are the same in both scenarios. Compare disaster areas to the promises of paradise made by the Left in trying to sell their socialist snake oil.
Whenever a disaster is to befall an area or has taken place, people often have to queue up to get the most basic of necessities. Supplies of water, milk, toilet paper and petrol often run short causing panic amongst the populace. These are an everyday occurrence in a ‘worker’s paradise’. Since there is no incentive to produce, these basic consumer goods end up in short supply. Quite often a socialist government will parcel these items out in a bid to buy loyalty while punishing the opposition. In the case of the wondrous Leftist paradise of Venezuela, home of the world’s largest oil reserves, people even have to queue up to buy gas. That socialist nation has continual shortages of basic necessities including water. Food is so scarce, people have to regularly rummage through the garbage to find something to eat. Many have lost an incredible amount of weight on the ‘Maduro diet’.
Failing infrastructure/Power outages.
Disasters will often result in power outages and infrastructure failure. In the case of a nation under socialism, the fundamental flaws of the that ideology cause these problems.
People fleeing the area.
Disaster situations will see multitudes of people leaving to get out of the danger zone. An area under the societal slavery of socialism will see people leaving to escape the destruction of Liberty endemic to the Left’s national agenda.
The lack of law and order in a disaster situation will have some take advantage of the situation to steal from others. Collectivism is in effect an official policy of looting, with Liberty control, empowering both the government and the criminal element, with crime running rampant after the innocent have been disarmed.
Often times, order is maintained with the military in a disaster area, as is often the case under a socialistic regime. Accidental deaths will often result from these situations. Oppression as well as deaths deliberately caused by said regimes are a staple of socialism.
The Key difference between a natural Disaster and the disaster of socialism.
The primary difference between a socialist system and a disaster is that the latter is a temporary condition. The people in the midst of a disaster only have endure it for a short time period. Those under the yoke of socialistic slavery have to endure it for years if not decades. Conditions will most often quickly improve in a disaster situation. Not so, for those suffering under socialism, who have to deal with the shortages, queuing up, failing infrastructure, power outages, crime, oppression and deliberate mass murder without relief.
These facts clearly indicate why those bent on attaining power under socialism never talk about it’s true reality. Their promises are always for something that never comes to fruition, for no one would willingly accept the permanent disaster of socialism if they were the least bit truthful of it’s final results.
Top 5 ‘Bottomless Pinocchios’ of the national socialist left
That perfect paragon of journalistic ‘objectivity’, the Washington Post, introduced a new rating for lies. We applied them to the left.
The Washington Post has developed a new rating system – the ‘Bottomless Pinocchio’ – for a false claim repeated over and over. This is somewhat ironic since the leftist media excels in the practice. While we will try to keep this to the more egregious and discrete lies of the left, a few notes on their other types of lies are in order.
The labeling and language lies of the left
Even the labels they apply to themselves – aside from being socialist – are falsehoods. These are people who work against the cause of liberty on a daily basis while pretending to be liberal. It’s a post-modernism community that has the false front of being ‘progressive’, that would prefer to use the judiciary to impose their socialist national agenda rather than democratic means.
Then there is the game of lying by language the left plays to excess. Time was, global cooling was the existential threat to woman and mankind, until it stopped getting cooler. Then global warming became the existential threat until it stopped getting warmer. Accordingly, they hit on the deception of working against it doing either, so no matter what happens, they can claim they are right because the climate has always changed. This also gave them a nice bonus in tarring any who opposes their control agenda as being a ‘climate change denier’ – even though no one actually denies the climate changes. Better yet, they have been able to shorten it up to the ultimate insult of labeling their opposition as ‘climate deniers’ as if people would actually deny reality itself.
These will be the top 5 ‘Bottomless Pinocchios’ of the left. These are lies that are recycled repeatedly by the left in their effort at distorting reality to the point where gun free zones actually keep people safe, no one is starting a conversation about gun confiscation and societal slavery can really work.
Bottomless Pinocchio 5: People have a ‘right’ to health care
This is one of the left’s favourites in trying to reshape (or ‘reform’) reality. Like many other variations of the ‘people have a right to’ line, this stems from the concept of Coercive or Collective Rights, whereby people have the ‘right’ to force others to provide them with the vestiges of this ‘right’. These are contrasted with Natural Rights possessed by everyone, the right to self-preservation, the right to property, the right of freedom of expression.
Having a ‘right’ to health care, or ‘right’ to feel safe, or a ‘right’ to not be offended, generally entails that someone else has to provide for this ‘right’. In the case of healthcare, providing this ‘right’ would mean that medical professionals would be required to sacrifice their time and labour in this effort. Citizens would also be forced to contribute their property. There is a word for when people are forced to provide their time and effort to others. It’s called slavery.
In point of fact the phrase should really be people have a ‘right’ to enslave others. But the folks who pretend to support liberty can’t say that directly, hence they use the ‘right to’ lie.
Bottomless Pinocchio 4: Gun free zones work as advertised
This one is slightly different from the others in that even leftists know they will be laughed off the public stage if they said this out loud. Rather, they imply the idea with their policy agenda of incessantly working towards gun confiscation, supposedly rendering the entire world a global ‘gun-free’ zone such as the latest example in France.
Expanding what doesn’t work always seems to be a hallmark of the left. Never mind that something doesn’t function in one area, extend it elsewhere so it’ll work… somehow.
Anyone familiar with logic can easily see why these don’t work, since those bent on evil will tend to go where they will have little opposition. Unfortunately, as with the fact that there are only two genders, leftists don’t seem to be able to comprehend that which is bloody obvious. They seem to have the misguided idea that a rule or a sign will stop a mass murderer.
The facts bear this out given that most mass shootings take place in ‘gun-free’ zones. This has been the situation for almost 30 years.
The problem for the left is that they can’t actually admit to their absolute failure in this area. Were they to do this, it would mean an end to their whole gun confiscation agenda. Thus they perpetuate that it’s a myth that defensive gun uses exist or that a ‘good guy (or gal) with a gun’ will deter these tragedies. It means that they continue to put people at risk for the sake of their disarmament agenda, without the hint of guilt on their part.
Bottomless Pinocchio 3 : No one is talking about gun confiscation
Finding cases where leftists have demanded gun confiscation has become as easy as shooting fish in a barrel (pardon the pun Peta). The past few years have seen an increase in these demands from the left to the point that it’s occurred more than 70 times – not counting excerpts, syndication and reprints. Repeating this lie enables leftists to keep the discussion to the next incremental step instead of their final solution to the liberty problem.
Still, the liberty grabber left persists in propagating this enormous lie. It does several things for them. It short circuits the negative effects of gun confiscation such as leaving the innocent defenseless against criminals and the government. It lulls some into a false sense of security as to the left’s long term goal for the cause of liberty.
This perennial lie is also necessary to get some to accept governmental overreach in controlling their personal property. They have used this same technique in getting people to register their guns accompanied by the solemn promise that they won’t use it to confiscate guns, after which their guns are confiscated.
Bottomless Pinocchio 2: Failed socialist experiments weren’t really socialist
It would seem this little ditty began when the socialist-left started trying to claim that a certain National Socialist German Workers’ Party wasn’t actually a National Socialist German Workers’ Party. The Left actually tried to reverse reality, making a party with a collectivist ideology of the left to one of an individualist ideology of the right. The problem for them is that those on the pro-liberty, conservative right, by definition favour lower taxes and limited government. Hardly something the Nazis were known for.
Leftists will often times try to deflect the facts of the matter given the very name of the party: ‘Nationalsozialistische deutsche Arbeiter-Partei’. But consider the words of the translator of Mein Kampf:
Finally, I would point out that the term Social Democracy may be misleading in English, as it has not a democratic connotation in our sense. It was the name given to the Socialist Party in Germany. And that Party was purely Marxist; but it adopted the name Social Democrat in order to appeal to the democratic sections of the German people.
James Murphy. Abbots Langley, February, 1939
Later on, they played this little game with virtually every other socialist regime. Miraculously enough, before these socialist regimes ran out of other people’s money the left labelled them as one of their own. Then in the blink of an eye, they would ping-pong from left to right almost overnight when they inevitably failed.
The problem for the left is that they have nothing on George Orwell. We’re supposed to simply ignore basic facts from history, beginning with the very words that socialists have used to describe themselves. These socialist regimes also followed collectivist precepts. But in an instant these facts are swept away, in favour of a new reality where Red is Blue and Blue is Red.
Bottomless Pinocchio 1: Socialism can actually work
This is a basic survival lie of the left. They cannot accede to the fact of 400 years of the failure of the ideas of their base ideology, so they must pretend it can work… somehow. Just as they can pretend to be liberal while working to tear down liberty, but that’s another subject.
Since their agenda of societal slavery has never worked, they have to deflect the argument with the aforementioned ‘socialism has never been tried before’ and ‘failed socialist experiments weren’t really socialist’ lies. Or pretending that non-socialist nations are really socialist.
The bottom line is that socialism can never work because it runs counter to basic human physiology. One will always see less of a behaviour that is negatively reinforced, while more will be seen with behaviour that is positively reinforced. The fundamental results of reward and punishment cannot be ignored, and yet this is what socialists have as the basis of their ideology.
Consider that the experiment of socialism has been conducted in situations around the world for over 400 years with the same result: failure. It should be obvious by now to most intelligent people that it cannot work, and yet the national socialist-left still persists in trying to turn that which is impossible into something that is possible, no matter who has to suffer and die.
In many ways the left should stay away from pronouncing judgement on falsehoods when they are so rife with them. Leftist lies keep them afloat in the sea of politics. We have shown that not only are they false, but they must be retold in order for the left to survive.
Dr Paul Lim tells how he went from atheist to Christian… at Yale
Universities aren’t usually considered likely venues for people to turn to the Christian faith. Ivy League universities rife with atheist professors are even less likely than most to yield a conversions to the faith. If anything, they’re efforts are often directly focused on converting Christians into abandoning their faith.
Dr Paul Lim tells a different tail. His personal journey from South Korea to California, then Pennsylvania on to Yale, is an exception to the rule. His journey is not common, but then again who’s to say what sort of journey to embracing Jesus Christ can be considered common?
It’s not too long, clocking in at just over 48 minutes, and much better than your average network television hour. If you already believe, it may help you open the eyes of others. If you don’t believe, your eyes may be opened.
How likely is it that a single protein can form by chance?
To really answers the question of whether life was created or came about by random chance, we need to take a mathematical look at things. It may be easier to form our opinions based on something we read in a junior high science book, but there really is more to it than the surface questions asked and answered by scientists and theologians alike.
For the faithful, it comes down to faith. For the scientific, it also comes down to faith. Whose faith is more likely to be correct?
Part of the answer can be found in this short video. Those who think there’s no faith associated with scientific theories clearly don’t understand the mathematics behind the science they claim to hold dear.
