What's Wrong With Liberals?Yesterday I chanced across a brilliant piece in Tech Central Station dealing with the nuts and bolts of exactly how a liberal's thinking is different from a normal person's, and it was all so... clinical. Then I chanced back over here to read the comment from the poor, pathetic, anonymous soul who saw politics in my lament over antisemitism (see post below) and it became very real. These people actually have a different way that the neurons in their brains work.
It all seems to stem from an inborn sense of superiority, and thus reveals a racism that transcends that which we see in, for instance, white power skinheads. At least a skinhead is aware that he hates the black man. And Jews, for that matter. But I find more to respect in a skinhead than a liberal. The liberal's hatred is based in lowered expectations, and an unwillingness (or an inability) to admit that we are all unique individuals. It is softer, but no less destructive. It binds us all into groups, that we have no way to escape, to transcend. Thus, it is based upon a lie.
After reading Keith Burgess-Jackson's piece, I understand the liberal mind much better. But that understanding can not save me from the fatigue that is overcoming me, a feeling that the national debate is hopeless. But that is the enemy's tactic: to wear us down. To be completely intransigent, until we retire from the field of battle, and refuse to debate them any more. Thus, they intend to achieve victory in the war of ideas. They wish to create a transnational, postmodern world in which no person can ever escape the boundaries that the intelligentsia places upon us. Our chief weapon against this is the truth.
So, we must resist the common knowledge, especially since it is always wrong. We need to continue to seek the truth, whether we like what we find or not. And, beyond that, we need to keep our eye on the ball, so we can knock it back into the other guy's court. The ball we have before us, the next play we must make. is to reelect George W. Bush. If we fail, we will be taking another step into the morass of Tranzi Hell, the world of nuance, where nothing is either right or wrong, where there can be a debate on the justification for infanticide, and call it a woman's right to choose. A world where a lament over the holocaust on the eve of remembrance of the Shoah is seen as an endorsement of Arik Sharon and George W. Bush. That's not a world that I choose to live in. That's a world that I must strive to change for the better.
Fatigue? What fatigue? I feel a second wind coming on.
