It’s Always Left Against Right….or Something

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

After the fake shooting in Texas, as always, the debate over gun control carries on, as ignorant voices claim the high ground, pretending to exude their vast knowledge of history, rights, liberalism, conservatism, progressivism and anything that embellishes the divide and conquer meme so prevalent and yet seemingly impossible to see  – another display of the attributes of the Hegelian Dialectic.

Life in the United States is 100% relegated to the false paradigm of Left and Right. The paradigm is fake but the minds of those who blindly follow either side exemplify the success of the created crises, the result of years of brainwashing and propagandizing. Regardless of the topic at hand, almost always these days a crisis, the only attempt and understanding such an event is either Left or Right – nothing else matters. And so it goes.

In a Town Hall Magazine article, about how the author believes the “Liberal Narrative” is now dead because he says so, the author also refers to himself and all others who think the way he does as “normal.” I’m not sure that would be a correct use of the word. Although I understand what he is trying to say, there is very little “normal” left anywhere in the world – so much so few have knowledge of what the words or liberal, conservative and progressive mean or the history behind them. I’ll spare you the history lesson but encourage you to try on your own. The short of it is the use of such labels are egregiously misappropriated.

Normal to the author is the belief you are a conservative. Normal to the liberal is their own truth, etc.

It is said that conservatism promotes “traditional social institutions in the context of culture and civilization.” Conservatism once emphasized self-reliance and individualism. That aspect of conservatism vanished quite some time ago and only exists as watered down ideology due to our mind manipulated love of government.

With this embedded into our society, one must consider the ignorance of that author when he writes: “When you own a weapon and can defend yourself and your rights, you are a citizen. When you do not, you are a subject.” If you are a citizen, and promote it as something a conservative would strive to become, then what becomes of the “self-reliance and individualism?” Many years ago in Vattel’s Law of Nations, in which many democratically based governments’ constitutions are built upon, it is clearly spelled out that when anyone chooses to become a member of a neighborhood, a town, a county, a state, or nation, they are giving away a portion of their “self-reliance and individualism.” In fact, you become a citizen and by definition you are a subject. The only differences are the degree to which you have offered up your servitude.

When you own a weapon and can defend yourself and your rights, YOU ARE A MAN! Being a citizen means you recognize that your government has granted you that right. Being a man means you understand that you have the right to defend yourself, even from the throes of corrupt governments. It is a struggle to have it both ways, i.e. self-reliance and individualism and dependence on government.

Liberalism, on the other hand, appears to be in even bigger trouble…that is as it pertains to hanging on to any kind of liberal belief. In the true sense of the word and the works and words of men like John Locke, thought by many to be the father of liberalism, I am more liberal than conservative. But that’s not what exists today. Far from it.

Liberalism, by definition, is “founded on the ideas of liberty and equality.” If we are to assume that this ideological philosophy of liberalism is to be shared and experienced by all, then why do today’s liberals want so much to remove liberty and equality from anyone who doesn’t blindly follow them?

Conservatives wander from the their own belief system, once minding their own business, letting others alone while enjoying their own individualism. Conservatives of today are as bent on stopping the liberties of liberals and progressives as liberals and progressives are in stopping the conservatives. What a mess!

It should become clear that all of these political ideologies are skewed and have reached a point where they are shortly running out of space to coexist. I believe this is all by design, but I recognize that nearly all readers will refuse to accept that premise. I cannot force feed you. It is worth gaining a better understanding, but……

The relentless and ignorant debates about guns, gun violence, gun rights, gun control, because of senseless emotions, works wonderfully as a tool to draw attention from what the debate and the staged events are all about.

If you have yet to even question anything beyond a Left vs. Right, childish yelling and banging head session, it would be impossible for you to learn anything.

    “all of these political {scientific,Historical, Kabbala, Mishna, Talmud, vain philosophies, environmental-Pantheist} ideologies are skewed and have reached a point where they are shortly running out of space to coexist.” Just one big world wide war… Someone three thousand miles from someone else wanting to dictate how they live in their immediate environment based upon some twisted fantastical false entitlement myth.
