Western thinking has become conservative:
the world situation should stay as it is at any cost;
there should be no changes. ....
The communist regime in the East could stand and grow due to the enthusiastic support
from an enormous number of Western intellectuals who felt a kinship and refused to see
communism's crimes. And when they no longer could do so, they tried to justify them. In
our Eastern countries, communism has suffered a complete ideological defeat; it is zero
and less than zero. But Western intellectuals still look at it with interest and with
empathy, and this is precisely what makes it so immensely difficult for the West to
withstand the East.
[Aleksandr Isayevich Solzhenitsyn at the Commencement, 8 June 1978, Harvard University]
But what is the value of Power and Control over your fellow citizens? To the left, domination and subjugation of the rest of us is priceless.
We stayed ahead of the rest of the world because they were socialist and we were free. So the ignorant voters, egged on by politicians, decided they should get other people’s stuff, and just like everywhere else, government took away freedom.
Now there is less stuff for everyone, except those well-connected to government. Big Government politicians tell the ignorant that their votes will get them food stamps and free birth control, and the economy is destroyed for everyone but government cronies. USSR government officials lived in dachas, while the people lived in dumps. ‘Twas ever thus.
Imagine what the US economy would be like if we had the flat tax Steve Forbes proposed in 1996 or the FairTax proposal (H.R. 25/S. 122) instead of the current income tax--the result would unemployment rate approaching "replacement" level (5%) and DJIA approaching 22,000!
Why aren’t they tracking down the scum making terroristic threats on twitter against whites if Z is not convicted?
