HERITAGE FOUNDATION: "How Modern Liberals Think" Evan Sayet
They don’t think. They emote.
I didn’t click on the link. My computer won’t load any file less than one bit.
What’s a ‘writter’?
“How Modern Liberals Think”
Their brains are in their intestines, somewhere.
Thanks for posting this. I have watched this video 5 or 6 times. It is the single best commentary on modern liberals I have ever seen. It explains it all, and it’s interesting and engaging. Sayet is just amazing.
To anyone who hasn’t seen this yet: it is WELL worth your time!
Ping for later
I remember this oldie but goodie.. It’s still true.
Past tense of "writer."
A very good dialog and take on liberalism..
“The logic of a five year old”... WORKS..
Utopian ideas with very little thought or even need to make “it” happen..
Indiscriminate diagnosis.. about specific things..
If “its” good its probably bad and if bad then its probably good.. is liberal..
Much thought has gone into this mans world views on liberalism..
You can just tell he has given this much thought..
>’’They don’t think. They emote’’< Badda Bing!! Took the very words right out of my mouth. Yes, they emote. ( I know this because I used to be one.)
Hi Big Joe —
I am Evan Sayet. Yes, the talk was from March of 2007 and I’m amazed how it still gets thousands of views (and powerful comments) a week all these years later.
Less known is that I returned for a follow-up talk to the Heritage Foundation in March of 2009. You can find it at this link below. I’m not sure how to post things on Free Republic but if you think it worthy, please feel free to do so.
I thought it was a brilliant presentation.
The only thing I disagree with is that liberals/progressives do believe in something: they believe in Marxism and they think think they are the “elite vanguard of the working class,” women, “people of color”, gays, illegals and whatever victim group you can think of. Anybody can sit in a lecture in a public school classroom(which you mentioned) or a university and know exactly what liberals think and where their philosophy comes from, and what their goal is.
Modern American liberalism has NEVER been an extension of classical liberalism(which is conservatism), but of Marxism.
They believe that there should be a “dictatorship of the proletariat,” which really means in its modern form a dictatorship run by a liberal elite, where we all bow down before them as serfs as they run our lives, because they think they know what is best. The Barack Obamas, the Hillary Clintons, the Keith Olbermans, the Rachel Maddows, the Harry Reids, and Nancy Pelosis truly believe we are too stupid to be free.
But anybody with a rational thought can look at the data objectively, look at the historical record, can look at the measurable results, and come to the conclusion that modern liberalism/Marxism is a complete failure. The elite don’t know what is best for us. The only thing they are efficient at is confiscating our money to enrich themselves and their political cronies.
Not only is it a failure, it is morally wrong, because everything that is a result of the modern liberal/Marxism causes more death, more destruction, more loss of freedom, more poverty, more irresponsibility than if liberalism never existed.
Liberals truly believe that the US is illegitimate, the rule of law is illegitimate, because the US is a historical tool of capitalism to oppress, and the only way to end oppression is to destroy that tool of oppression.
Liberals don’t think there is anything such as an objective good or objective rights or objective morality, because as Marx pointed out, those values were artificially created by a capitalist system to oppress and enslave people.
The principles of the Founding Fathers were compatible with the life proper to a rational being. Libtards think and act irrationally and reject these principles in order to achieve their own vision of utopia which is incompatible with a rational life
It will be fascinating to see how they rationalize support for someone who is calling for Israel to cut itself in half, while simultaneously telling Israel that they will now have to "defend themselves, by themselves."
Yep. Lower end of the bowels.
This guy is great.
This guy is great.
Ya wannabe the Republican president? We need one who can walk and talk at the same time.
Mr. Sayet, thank you SOOO much for your first talk at the Heritage Foundation. I have practically memorized it. The insights you provided, while undeniably depressing, are invaluable. You are the only person who has ever fully explained the liberal mind to me—and my subsequent encounters (with liberals) have borne your analysis out spectacularly.
I can’t wait to watch your encore. If it’s half as good as the first presentation, it will be priceless.
