The Leftists don’t use Reason—that is why Ayn Rand stated that they were “irrational”-—her word.
The only time they use Reason is when they plan their agenda to fool the masses and create “happy slaves”. They plan infiltration of all institutions that have “power” and coordinate all their MSM mouthpieces with specific soundbites since the 20s. They are great at it because they are Jackboots and people fear they will end up like a Breitbart if they don’t do as told. “Fear” is necessary for them to get “control” over others.
That is why true Christians are so dangerous (Bonhoeffer)—they fear God, not Man and will fight for Truth. Marxists get the dirt on all their targets (NSA/CIA) and will use it to destroy people’s reputation and wealth. When they can’t (like Breitbart), they kill them.
The repetition is essential—and the control of all information is essential. The internet is a Godsend-—we are getting much more “truth” now.
All public school textbooks have been designed by psychologists to train children (Pavlovian methodology) to “think” one way and destroy Reason and Virtue. They tie emotions to concepts-—so words elicit the correct “feeling”. It is operant conditioning and they have done this for 30 years at least. In Common Core, 1st grade book they tie “Nag to Mother”. This is one of the less obvious ones.......
All concepts undermine the Natural Family—mother and father-—and Christian Ethics. They want to destroy those things which created Individualism and Courage and Reason (Christianity). Alone—without family you are weak, ineffective.....no problem for the State to crush-—that is why the Lenin’s No Fault Divorce laws to destroy the contract and encourage divorce so children become emotionally damaged and people are too busy with dealing with life to watch government officials.
After being brainwashed for 12 years, it is almost impossible to get these zombies OUT of Plato’s Cave. Common Core is complete annihilation of Classical Thinking (Reasoning).
My simple suggestion:
Back to Common Sense/Laws of Nature/Reason/Truth/God.
Burn all public school textbooks. All of them, and put parents in control of their children’s education with a free market-—all local control and throw out the TV (for the children). Control the TV at least and use it very sparingly. If children very rarely watch tv—it is better for IQ. TV watching is related to lower IQ.
BTT! Great post - as usual.
Prescient of you as well...(either that, or the author was inspired BY you:)
Good post. I didn’t know Lenin created no fault divorce laws but I’m not surprised.
Did you notice in the cartoon that it used the word “discriminate” as a good thing that man’s reason needs to use? Our society has been brainwashed into thinking that it’s always a terrible thing but it simply means to discern or distinguish.
Here are two good articles I posted on this topic:
“It especially annoys me when racists are accused of ‘discrimination.’ The ability to discriminate is a precious facility; by judging all members of one ‘race’ to be the same, the racist precisely shows himself incapable of discrimination.”-Christopher Hitchens on a rare occasion when I agreed with him. Sadly, we know emotion has overtaken reason when it’s become a “virtue” to be indiscriminate and undiscerning.
