Collectivism 101: The lie of ‘From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs’

Collectivism 101 The lie of From each according to his ability to each according to his needs

Every living being has to work to survive, this is a basic law of nature Leftists like to ignore.

‘Democratic’ socialism is all the rage with the Left these days. A new generation having been deluded into the false notion that they are owed a living simply because they exist. That if the world fails to provide free health care, free housing, free food, free college, etc, etc. That this is a failure on the part of Economic Liberty [please note that term instead of the implied pejorative ‘Capitalism’]. This is a logical fallacy from a practical and moral standpoint that needs to be debunked in order for our civilisation to endure.

It’s a law of nature that one has to work to survive.

The fact is that every living being from the beginning of time has had to exert itself to survive. Every living creature from bacteria to Brontosaur has had to do work in order to exist. That is simply a fact of life. It is simply a logical progression that this rule has to apply to human beings as well. It may not be a popular idea or accepted in certain circles, but that is the practical matter is that one’s existence does not encumber others to support that existence.

Contravening this law of nature is the false proposition that because they live in a particular location that they are entitled to the fruits of someone else’s labour. This is often couched in terms that play on innate compassion that people have for each other. Phrases such as ‘No one should be too poor to live’. There are of course arguments for charity and the like, but that doesn’t encumber society to provide for everyone’s needs

The lie of ‘From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs’

It logically follows that if one has to work in order to live. Then one is not entitled to the labour of others in order to survive. This is not to say that one cannot be compassionate to others, nor does it disavow charity. But that is a far cry from a burden placed on society by those who dwell within it.

The ‘From each according to his ability’ part of an article of the Marxist faith is particularly pernicious in that it takes force or coercion to accomplish this task. Most do not want the fruits of their labour taken from them to be distributed to others. This is why Leftists obsess over depriving the people of their means of self defense, from intergalactic background checks to gun confiscation SWATing.

The phrase ‘From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs’ is adverse to Liberty.

The word slavery is the general term for when one’s time, labour and property are under claim by others. That is the case where one’s abilities are tasked to provide for others. Liberty is the last word one would apply to the plight of people under the oppression of ‘Democratic’ socialism.

The phrase ‘To each according to his needs’ is also immoral in that justifies the redistribution of property in order to fulfil this ‘need’. It is also the antithesis of practical reality. It is an open-ended entitlement that cannot ever be fulfilled. Who decides what are one’s ‘needs’? Who decides how these are to be provided?

In a system of Economic Liberty one is free to produce whatever they want in terms of income or property. This is tightly controlled for most under the oppression of Socialistic Slavery or ‘Democratic’ socialism. While for most, severe limitations have to be placed on the ‘to each according to his needs’ back end. The upper crust of collectivist systems have no such limitations, but that is the exception. For the people, they are either forced to produce or be satisfied with the ‘crumbs’ of whatever revolution is being referenced.

The Takeaway

  • Living beings have to exert effort in order to survive, this is a unbreakable law of nature.
  • ‘From each according to his ability’ has to be implemented under the threat of force.
  • ‘To each according to his needs’ requires limitations made on the promises from Leftists trying to sell their socialistic snake oil to those who want something for nothing.

Both ends of that little phrase are immoral and impractical that violate the basic realities of human nature. This has proven by 400 years of the failure that is ‘Democratic’ socialism.

Evidence points to some dinosaurs living beyond the extinction event

Evidence points to some dinosaurs living beyond the extinction event

It is, for all practical purposes, nearly impossible for the vast majority of people who have received a modern education to even consider the possibility that dinosaurs are not as old as we have been told. It’s a topic that I’ve avoided because the presuppositions are so powerful among the general population.

Today, I decided to tackle the topic with one purpose: to start a discussion with those who have an open mind. I’m well aware that most minds will be closed and there will be much more sarcasm than discourse, but ridicule from the indoctrinated masses is a small price to pay if just one person can hear this and decide to dig deeper into science and the Bible to have the truth revealed.

It’s been instilled in our minds as common knowledge that the dinosaurs died off 65 million years ago in the Cretaceous-Tertiary extinction event with the most prevalent alleged culprit being the impact of a comet or asteroid at Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula. For the most part, anything that’s considered common knowledge can be sustained without anyone questioning the assumptions. For example, it was common knowledge based upon what was easily observable that the sun, moon, and stars revolved around the earth. That was finally debunked, of course, but scientific debate on the model of our solar system continued until the early 20th century.

A more recent example of common knowledge being wrong is the idea that acid caused by bad diet or stress is what causes ulcers. In 2005, Barry Marshall and Robin Warren won the Nobel Prize for Medicine by demonstrating that the vast majority of ulcers were caused by an infection of the bacterium H. pylori.

Now is not the time to debate young earth versus ancient earth, but it’s becoming increasingly clear that dinosaurs were around in the time of man. Even a brave segment of the secular scientist world has started questioning whether the extinction event killed off all of them based upon mounting evidence. There was even a formerly prominent professor who learned the hard way that bringing forth compelling scientific evidence of dinosaurs walking with men can earn people a quick entry onto the black list.

Over the centuries, intellectuals have had a difficult time having their worldviews shattered. The funny thing is that the existence of modern era dinosaurs doesn’t change much. It could mean that small pockets of the world were protected from the extinction event. One would not have to make huge adjustments to their worldview if this were the case which is why it’s so perplexing that they won’t even explore the possibility. It’s reminiscent of the persecution that Galileo received, only this time it’s not at the hand of the Christian church but rather at the hands of the church of science.

I want to go much deeper on the issue of why there seems to be reluctance at best and a systematic coverup at worst, but we’ll have to explore that on a future video. For now, I’d like to turn to a video we watched that gives a pretty interesting perspective. While I don’t agree with all of the conclusions or evidence, there’s enough good to make it appropriate for sharing.

Houston library had Alberto Garza, a registered child sex offender, read stories to children for Drag Queen Storytime

Houston library had Alberto Garza a registered child sex offender read stories to children for Drag

Conservatives know the LGBTQ community has their say in most aspects of life in America today. Their political and cultural influence is unquestionable and public organizations jump through hoops to appease the various groups. Many libraries have even embrace “Drag Queen Storytime” as a way to teach tolerance to children by allowing transvestites to read stories to children.

Houston Public Library is one such progressive public organization that has embraced the practice. Unfortunately, they didn’t do anything to protect the children that visit the library by allowing “Tatiana Mala Nina” to read for the children. The problem arose because”Tatiana” is actually Alberto Garza, a 32-year-old child sex offender.

My Take

Houston Public Library has apologized. Is that really enough? Mistakes happen, but there are certain situations and jobs in which extra special care must be taken. Our public libraries, which are often considered to be truly safe places and popular venues for children to learn, should be able to give a reasonable expectation to parents that registered child sex offenders are not given explicit access to children.

This is gross negligence. I may be in the minority on this one, but this is a terminable offense in my books. Someone’s head should roll.

Keep in mind I rarely call for anyone to be fired for a single offense, but this is literally the worst case scenario for a library administrator. When you give someone access to the children that come to the library, they cannot be convicted child sex offenders. That’s sort of a no-brainer.

Nothing will likely happen beyond the apology, but here’s hoping.

So many exceptions are made for “alternative lifestyles” for the sake of tolerance. But when this tolerance allows a convicted child sex offender to have access to small children, the exceptions have gone way to far. This is absolutely unacceptable.

Muslim leader in Ilhan Omar’s district: ‘When David Duke of the Ku Klux Klan agrees with you…’

Muslim leader in Ilhan Omars district When David Duke of the Ku Klux Klan agrees with you

The controversy over Representative Ilhan Omar’s (D-MN) antisemtic statements and Tweets have garnered the freshman Congresswoman criticism from some unlikely sources, including many of the Muslim leaders in her own community. They, along with Jewish Democrats in the district that voted for Omar, are uniting to condemn the way Omar has been handling her first few months in office.

“When David Duke of the Ku Klux Klan agrees with you, you’re not doing something right,” said Mohamed Ahmed, a Muslim activist who spoke with a panel of other local leaders.

The Congresswoman came under fire for her statements, but the response from Congress was muted. Rather than focusing on antisemitism or even including her name in an “anti-hate” resolution, they watered it down to include essentially any form of hate and refused to note Omar’s role as the catalyst for the resolution in the first place.

In other words, she got off without even getting a slap in the wrist.

But the words are still out there and thus far the antisemitic Congresswoman seems more concerned about other people’s reactions than whether or not her words were wrong. Apparently, she still sees no problem in what she said, but will refrain from saying them in public for political expediency.

My Take

As noted here before, one of the goals of the Democratic Party is to normalize antisemitism. While everyone seems to be focused on whether or not Omar is sorry for her words, nobody’s wondering why the Democratic Party as a whole seems to be perfectly fine with her feelings.

It’s getting harder and harder for conservative news outlets to speak out against such things. It’s not that there aren’t enough willing to say it, but between social media and search – the two primary traffic drivers for many conservative sites – they have to tone down their news so as not to get banned. This is just one of many reasons it’s so important for our readers to support us so we can continue bringing these stories to light.

The last thing we need is for someone like Ilhan Omar continuing to spread her feelings unabated. It’s clear the Democrats are unwilling to do something about it. Perhaps it’s time to help a moderate Democrat win a primary election against her. She was endorsed by the Justice Democrats, so it’s pretty clear how her radical ideologies emerged.

The world needs to know that Ilhan Omar doesn’t represent American perspectives. More importantly. voters in her district need to know this. We need to keep spreading the truth.
