Dennis Prager makes the point that Leftists parasitically feed off that which has been built up by others.
In his latest video, Dennis Prager lays out the case that Leftists are generally incapable of building on their own and instead have to use up that produced by others.
Please note that as always he makes the distinction between Leftism and Liberalism. A distinction many on the Pro-Liberty Right fail to make, lumping many supportive of individual liberty in with those of the collectivist mindset.
Many have the unfortunate tendency to use a ‘word salad’ in describing the nation’s party in opposition to Liberty. Referring to Leftists as being ‘progressive’ or ‘Liberal’ in one instance, then ‘democratic’ the next, followed by using the correct term in another.
“The champions of socialism call themselves progressives, but they recommend a system which is characterized by rigid observance of routine and by a resistance to every kind of improvement.
They call themselves liberals, but they are intent upon abolishing liberty.
They call themselves democrats, but they yearn for dictatorship.
They call themselves revolutionaries, but they want to make the government omnipotent.
They promise the blessings of the Garden of Eden, but they plan to transform the world into a gigantic post office. Every man but one a subordinate clerk in a bureau. What an alluring utopia! What a noble cause to fight!”
Ludwig von Mises
It is extremely important that we stop using this word salad in describing the Socialist-Left that unifies many under it’s Red banner. They are Leftists plain and simple.
