It’s Always Left Against Right….or Something

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.

They Caused Me To Act The Way I Do

*Editor’s Note* – I got the below in my email today and thought it would be a good example of how we are deceived and blinded, much because of our own self-importance, taught to us by those promoting the false paradigm of Democrat/Republican or Liberal/Conservative. That isn’t to say that political idealism doesn’t exist. It does. But that isn’t what this little ditty below is about…is it?

Depending on which side of the fence you have been convinced you are on, you, most likely, will read this and think it to be mostly, or all, true, or mostly, or all, false. You will either come away feeling a sense of pride, accomplishment and power, or your level of anger and disgust has risen a couple of notches. But, isn’t that the purpose of all this? It’s easy to say, at the end, “It really is just that simple,” and perhaps to the simple-minded it is just that simple. 

Whoever wrote this probably thinks (or they were just doing their “divide and conquer” job) the statements are true. And, who could argue with it…unless you are of “the other side?” Again, that is my point. The simple act of writing this “You Created Us” is, in fact, who and what created “them” – them being the ones blamed for creating “us.”

Probably since the beginning of time, no two people have been able to agree on everything. Man is incapable of accepting that fact and letting it go…something called respect. Instead, things are written and said about “the other side.” Each time someone does or says something disparaging about “the other side,” the gap of respect begins to diminish. At this point, each “side” has begun the creation of the “other side.”

And then we have those who take the high road and say, “Our side doesn’t do this or do that” – that it’s the other side that’s all wrong and misguided. It doesn’t stop. It will never stop. 

And now we have the in-your-face Trump winners justifying their “victory” by taking the thorn in the side and turning it into a dagger, blaming “them” beside “they” created “us.” What should we look for next?

It would probably be in everyone’s interest to take a hard look at who really are the ones, the powers, the entities who have created this hateful mess – and this one disguised as, “Don’t look at me! The other side did it!”

~~~~~~~~~~~

I’m noticing that a lot of you aren’t graciously accepting the fact that your candidate lost.

In fact you seem to be posting even more hateful things about those of us who voted for Trump.

Some of you are apparently “triggered” because you are posting how “sick” you feel about the results.

How did this happen you ask?

You created “us” when you attacked our freedom of speech.

You created “us” when you attacked our right to bear arms.

You created “us” when you attacked our Christian beliefs.

You created “us” when you constantly referred to us as racists.

You created “us” when you constantly called us xenophobic.

You created “us” when you told us to get on board or get out of the way.

You created “us” when you forced us to buy health care and then financially penalized us for not participating.

You created “us” when you lied and said we could keep our insurance plans and our doctors.

You created “us” when you allowed our jobs to continue to leave our country.

You created “us” when you attacked our flag.

You created “us” when you took God out of our schools.

You created “us” when you confused women’s rights with feminism.

You created “us” when you began to emasculate men.

You created “us” when you decided to make our children soft.

You created “us” When you decided to rewrite school history books and remove the truth about our founders

You created “us” when you decided to vote for progressive ideals.

You created “us” when you attacked our way of life.

You created “us” when you decided to let our government get out of control.

“You” created “us” the silent majority.

You created “us” when you began murdering innocent law enforcement officers.

You created “us” when you took a knee, or stayed seated or didn’t remove your hat during our National Anthem.

And we became fed up and we pushed back and spoke up.

And we did it with ballots, not bullets.

With ballots, not riots.

With ballots, not looting.

With ballots, not blocking traffic.

With ballots, not fires, except the one you started inside of “us”.

“YOU” created “US”.

It really is just
that simple.
