Or as expressed by the country’s collectivists: Criticism of socialism is racist!
A video from Star Parker presented by the DC Shorts makes the important but most likely ‘politically incorrect’ with regards to the Left’s socialist national agenda in that one only has to go to places run by the Left to witness their disastrous policies. Even though it came out in early June, this video highlights the same points made about the city of Baltimore and other environs run by the Democrats.
Note that the Left loves to play fast and loose with word definitions, applying postmodernist precepts to twist them into unrecognizable nonsense – such as with the word ‘racism’.
In the case of socialism, they have blatantly redefined it to whatever suits their needs of the moment. For all intents and purposes, it means the: Central planning of the economy and the radical redistribution of wealth. Socialism isn’t about free choice, it’s about concentrating power into the hands of government elites—ultimately through force.
Thus we see how this plays out in the urban areas ruined by the Left. In all likelihood, they will object to this characterization of their most cherished faith because it doesn’t involve the government ownership of the means of production or some other excuse to protect the term.
The fact is that in the case of areas where there is government control and the radical redistribution of wealth, there are disastrous results. So as the video makes clear, we can witness the horrid effects of the Left’s socialist national agenda in the areas they control. Perhaps that is why we are not allowed to talk about such things, lest they be deemed ‘racist’ or some other increasingly meaningless pejorative.
A Life changing Christian Conversion.
Further, on in the video she talks about how this changed her life:
[From the auto generated transcript]
That Christian conversion changed my life when God was introduced through his son Jesus Christ. I said okay and in that slowly I was able to start making decisions that were much more healthy. One of the beauties of the biblical worldview is its personal responsibility. It teaches person you can come up with any excuses you want to but at the end of the day at core of having an advocate through Jesus Christ to wash our sins is that it allows your freedom to mess up.
So you don’t have to pre-plan, you don’t have to collectivism you can get out there and try to fulfill a destiny instead of group dream and reach for it.
The Bottom Line.
She brings up an important point that we need to get the government out of our lives, that we need to go in a different direction. For far too long the Left has tried to dictate what was the correct way to do things – politically or whatever – and they have led us down the wrong path.
Somehow, they escaped blame because they allegedly only had ‘good intentions’. Well, we can see the results of their socialist nation agenda all around. They’ve tried their ideas for the better part of 4 centuries with horrific results. They’ve tried their ideas in the states for several decades with failure after failure. They no longer have the ‘good intentions’ excuse. Doing the same thing over and over is the definition of insanity and it has to stop.
The Left wants to layer failure onto previous Leftist failures. Let’s have them in the spotlight for once, let’s have them explain how their supposedly ‘new’ ideas –based on ancient ideas – will never work because they have worked in the past. After several centuries of collectivism, its time to try something new: Liberty. A radical, revolutionary concept the Left cannot abide – despite supposedly being Liberal.
