How the "Left's" thinking is haywire

It has been my experience that much of the so-called "Left" takes itself a lot more seriously than most of the so-called "Right". Accordingly, it might be a good idea for the Left to read my criticism of the Right set forth in a separate essay before reading my criticism of the Left. That way, at least they will know I am an "equal opportunity" basher, er, critic, and might not erroneously believe I am picking exclusively on the Left due to some twisted capitalistic-greed-based, "fact-challenged" ideology. Not that that would make any difference to personality-disordered race hustlers, political1 correctness hustlers, determined wannabe-clever ad hominem demonizers, and/or Goebbelsian fascistic propagandists, of course.

The insurmountable core problem with leftist/collectivist ideology is that it is inherently in direct conflict with the most basic characteristics of empirically observable human nature. Collectivism necessarily requires herd/government coercion/violence to control “The Other”, when the individual human critter inconveniently (for so-called "liberals") just happens to have been created (or “evolved” if our atheist friends prefer that word) — with a survival need for individual self-ownership and self-determination. It is a logically self-evident fact that Control over The Other and individual self-ownership are completely irreconcilable and, therefore, anathema to each other. The human spirit cannot thrive and find contentment under slavery/serfdom.

Part of the reason the Right lies, cheats, steals and revises history is because they have at least some awareness of reality, logic and Golden-Rule morality which makes them believe it is necessary to conceal their true intent (from God, themselves and others) in order to get what they want.

The Left is exponentially worse and more dangerous than the Right. They live in a Utopian dream world of intellectual laziness, envy, scheming and wishful thinking, and have no contact with reality. Therefore they don't have to make any intellectual concessions to either reality, logic or the Golden-Rule. They don't have to lie, cheat and steal to get what they want so much as, sincerely believing they are a higher, smarter, kinder and gentler form of life than everybody else, they believe that if they can only find clever and deceptive enough things to say and promise, everyone else will believe them and want to vote them into positions of One-Ring gubmint Power, where they can wield that Power to get what they want. So the Left's lying, cheating and stealing is somewhat different than that of the Right.

Arguably the Left's biggest problem is that they believe things about the inherent nature of the human individual which are simply and self-evidently not true. All human individuals have an inherent survival NEED (not merely desire) for self-ownership and self-determination, including the disordered Left, but the Left mindlessly demonizes any and all individuals who refuse to consent to allowing someone else run their lives and steal and redistribute their labor. Of course leftists don't want their lives run for them, or their labor stolen from them either, but they are absolutely oblivious to that little bit of hypocrisy, being lost in the throes of their intellectual laziness, envy and disordered control-freak lunacy.

Leftists behave as if they believe Nature bends itself to their will instead of humans being required to make concessions to the various realities and requisites of Nature, such as food, clothing, shelter and the labor necessary to obtain them.

With leftists, all thought is an exercise in manipulation, wannabe-clever intellectual dishonesty, and control-freak belligerence. They act like they truly believe that liberty, justice, self-ownership and self-determination amount to "equal outcome/results" for effort expended, which is self-evidently false and stupid on its face. They act like they truly believe they can only achieve their personal individual freedom by wielding the collective coercion of the State over the lives of everyone else (including stealing and redistributing their labor) - all for the "public good" of course.

Leftists act like there is no fixed moral standard in the universe, no fixed point of moral reference. Leftists act like there are no natural laws of economics. They act like there's no such thing as the law of supply and demand. They act like there's no such thing as the easily demonstrable laws that 1) whatever you tax you get less of, and 2) whatever you subsidize you get more of. These ideas do not enter into a leftist's brain, and even if they did, they wouldn't matter in the slightest, because leftists sincerely believe they are smarter, kinder, gentler, more tolerant, more altruistic, more "caring" than everybody else just because of their desire to use One-Ring gubmint Power to steal labor from A and give it to B, for the "common good" of course, after putting most of it into their own hypocritical pockets.

I believe humans have three main inherent problems which leftists refuse to even think about. Although the "greedy" and "self-interested" — (from the intellectually-challenged Left's point of view) — Right generally has difficulty articulating them with specificity and precision, the clueless Left acts as if they are TOTALLY oblivious to their existence.

The first inherent problem I call “the Infinity Glitch.” We can’t comprehend infinity. Oh, we can recognize and draw the symbol, and we can even semi-grasp the idea, but we can't assimilate it, feel it, and thoroughly UNDERSTAND it and be at peace with it in our gut. The same brain that can’t accept the ideas of no beginning and no end, once it has put a neat white picket fence around the universe, is the first in line to want to know what’s on the other side of the fence that supposedly now marks the end of the universe. The Infinity Glitch can drive the human mind crazy if we let it. I like to believe that’s what happened to Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche, a truly bright mind — but not bright enough to keep from driving itself crazy.

The second problem is the inherent unworkability of the "mind-of-A-controlling-the-body-of-B" paradigm, which I call the "Government Glitch." The reality-based definition of the word is: “Government” = person or group A coercing (via a “legal” monopoly on violence and terrorism) person or group B to obey the will of A on pain of loss of life, liberty, and property. "501(c)(3) Church" = political pecking order organized to brainwash individuals into believing the lies that the theivery and murder perpetrated by "government" is the "will of God."  The reason “government” does not, indeed cannot, work is because when the mind of A is allowed to control the body (physical labor) of B, there is no end to the wants, demands, and expectations of A’s mind. If “in Power,” A’s wants, demands, and expectations are not restricted by the reality-based physical limitations of A’s body to produce all those wants, demands, and expectations for itself. If not “in Power,” then A’s wants, demands, and expectations are restricted by the reality-based physical limitations of A’s body to produce all those wants, demands, and expectations for itself. This fact is why self-sufficiency is vastly preferable to interdependency as both a virtue and a political theory. It is also the reason why, in the long run, no economy can function unless it is composed of willing buyers and willing sellers in a free market.

The third problem is economics-based. I call it the "Producer-Consumer Glitch." The way to identify and define a liar is if he disagrees with this absolute self-evident fact and statement: every single one of us, as an individual, wants to get paid as much as possible for his own labor and products, while simultaneously paying as little as possible (cheap is good, "free" is even better) for the labor and products of “the other guy.” For some reason, we perceive the physical effort (aka “work”) required in the material plane to provide food, clothing and shelter for our robes of flesh (aka “bodies”) as pain to be avoided if possible.

Thanks to the suicidally stupid, inherently evil, inevitably corrupting, seemingly never-ending pecking order struggle of the human species (aka "government"), we seem to have the nasty collective habit of complicating, organizing, manipulating, institutionalizing and “culturizing” these three simple, self-evident, empirically observable facts/”glitches” into an unimaginably tangled and huge globalized mass of wars, genocides, famines, deprivation, economic crises, pain, suffering, sorrow, and general all-around amorphous evil.

That is the great deception of the fascist2/neo-feudalist: first he uses simplistic and misleading collectivist (socialistic and/or communistic) arguments of police power to justify wealth redistribution and appeal to the indolent, the greedy, the unfortunate, and the altruistic; then, having prevailed in the arena of public opinion and acquired the political power to redistribute wealth, he steals it from the taxpayer and uses capitalistic free-enterprise liberty and property rights arguments to put the lion's share of the loot into his own privately owned corporate and/or bureaucratic pockets. Such practice is exceedingly clever and complex, to be sure — even clever enough to fool some lawyers, politicians and courts who have apparently given little thought to economics and the natural laws of justice — but the practice is not so clever as to be entirely invisible to the people, and it is guaranteed in the end, as predicted by Justice Brandeis in his famous Olmstead dissent, to precipitate a terrible retribution. This is so because the safety and welfare of the WHOLE public is harmed by the deception.

It is worthy of notice, in my opinion at least, that there seems to be a much wider gulf between the Elite Left and the Lemming Left than there is between the Elite Right and the Lemming Right. The Lemming Left seems incapable of understanding that many of the "richest" of the "evil rich" are in fact fascistic/neo-feudalistic Elite Leftists and members of the Democrat Party. They are sufficiently ignorant — virtually illiterate in subjects of the U.S. Constitution and Economics 101 — naive and gullible to believe a fascistic2/neo-feudalistic money-monopoly-capitalism billionaire like George Soros is "on the little guy's side" when NOTHING could possibly be farther from the truth.

To their great discredit, both Left and Right routinely engage in manipulative, wannabe-politically-clever ad hominem name calling, complete with near constant usage of the so-called "straw man" logic fallacy in their slogans, jingoism and rhetoric against the "other" side. The Left's favorite epithet is "Racist!", while the Right's favorite epithet seems to be "unpatriotic". Many of the Lemming Right don't realize how bad the Elite Right's demonization was during the so-called "Red Scare" era which resulted in a number of deliberate judicial murders. (See e.g. the deliberate hangings of known-to-be innocent men solely because of their political beliefs during the Haymarket riots.) However, in modern times, I believe it is the Left who ratcheted up the vehemence and belligerence of their political rhetoric and demonization of their political opponents to the point of rhetorical brinksmanship as a matter of political strategy. That, in my book is evil, and the Right has pretty much been forced to keep up with tit for tat as a matter of political survival because, as a matter of practical political reality, negative campaigning, fear mongering, and muck raking have been shown to work. So there is always lowlife scum3 willing to take advantage of that fact.

It is true that gender-feminist misandry and radical gay activist speech-Nazism are important political issues. But arguably, the biggest political bone I have to pick is with the Lemming Left, particularly the Black portion of the Lemming Left. As a preemptive defense against the deliberately false accusations of race-hustling, race-dividing scum3, let me hasten to freely acknowledge that Blacks are no more a monolith than Whites. There are a great many Black "conservatives" (see websites such as Project 21 and Republicans for Black Empowerment) who are not guilty of either race hustling or race dividing, and who do not use the evil tactics of various race-hustling, race-dividing scumbag3 individuals. In my opinion, promoting steal-and-redistribute socialism under the pretense of "anti-racism" is pure undiluted evil. Poor whites don't (and can't) get away with saying, "If you don't give me your money, you're a racist." Millions of poor "minorities" not only say that, but they actually believe it because they have been have been sold an intellectually fraudulent bill of goods by professional for-money race hustlers and race dividers such as Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, whom I consider to be dangerous, immoral, anti-intellectual, anti-individual-freedom scum3.

I have a real problem with the type of scum3 who say, "Blacks are entitled to 'free'4 stuff from the gubmint because Whites are racist jerks." I have a real problem with the type of scum3 who say, "I am a minority/woman/homosexual, therefore I am automatically a victim of white men between the ages of 18 and 65 because they are by definition evil racist/misogynist/homophobic (take your pick) perpetrators. So give me your money, Whitey/Bubba/Homophobe (take your pick), or you're a racist/misogynist/homophobe (take your pick). If you don't agree with me that steal-and-redistribute fascism/socialism/communism (take your pick) is a wonderful idea and a long-term sustainable economics scheme for American society, then you are by definition automatically a racist/misogynist/homophobe (take your pick). Vote for Obama or you're a racist. If Obama loses, America is a racist country." That type of sociopathically manipulative crap is worse than sick and manipulative. It's pure undiluted evil, and it stands directly in the path to the fulfillment of the achievement of the ultimate spiritual and intellectual potential of humankind. Therefore, it must be viewed as anathema by all clear-thinking people of all skin colors and genders.

When discussing ideas such as the fulfillment of the full spiritual and intellectual potential of the human species, whether economic schemes like socialism, communism and/or fascism are good or bad ideas, sustainable or unsustainable ideas, is not an issue of skin color, it’s self-evidently an Economics-101 and education issue. To pretend otherwise is to hate the humanity of your fellow human beings. And that would make you a Lex-Luthorian sociopath to be shunned by all decent hard-working people of good will regardless of skin color.

There is an old saying to the effect, "If you're not a liberal when you're young, you have no heart, and if you're not a conservative when you're old, you have no brain." As is the case with a great many conservatives and libertarians, many of them famous and accomplished individuals, I freely confess to being a naive and clueless leftist in my youth. Thank God the human mind is capable of adapting to the realities of Nature and assimilating new knowledge and new facts!

FOOTNOTES:

1. Always remember, "politics" = person or group A trying to persuade person or group B to obey the will of A, most frequently for the personal financial benefit of A and to the personal financial detriment (higher taxes) of B. That is why deception = the so-called "art" of politics. That is also why "politician" = professional deceiver, and why "political" = deception-based, or having to do with deception. Everybody is competing for political power to steal labor and money out of the "other guy's" pocket and put it in their own. Politicians get votes by promising to be all things to all people. Because that is a physical impossibility, most of their promises of necessity get broken. Because they know this in advance, they are ALL liars to one degree or another. The king is always the most corrupt person in the kingdom. After all, the first two kings of Israel, Saul and David, were murderers. In my opinion, any person who sincerely wants to be the king is criminally insane and an implacable deadly enemy to individual freedom.

2. Fascism = private economic enterprise under centralized governmental control. — Webster’s New World Dictionary of the American Language, Second College Edition. I would expand that definition: fascism = private economic enterprise under centralized governmental control, in which “government” is used as a “business” tool by private interests. Another way of articulating the same idea is: fascism = private ownership of government.

John Flynn defined the word thusly: “Fascism is a system of social organization in which the political state is a dictatorship supported by a political elite and in which the economic society is an autarchial capitalism, enclosed and planned, in which the government assumes responsibility for creating adequate purchasing power through the instrumentality of national debt and in which militarism is adopted as a great economic project for creating work as well as a great romantic project in the service of the imperialist state.” [As We Go Marching, p. 161, 2nd ed.] — John T. Flynn (1882-1964) American Journalist and Author

"Fascist" = scumbag3 "businessman" who uses the police powers of government (via bribes, special-interest legislation, holding office himself, etc) to corruptly increase profits and eliminate or reduce competition for his (or her) business/es beyond what they would be in a genuinely fair and free marketplace comprised of willing sellers and willing buyers.

MANY Democrats and Republicans are fascists, especially the ones in Congress. To paraphrase Jesse Ventura in a conversation with Willie Nelson and Alex Jones, the DEMS and GOP are like professional wrestling: they pretend to be adversaries in public. But behind closed doors, they're good buddies, hanging out with each other, making business deals and having dinner together at fancy restaurants and at each other homes and mansions.

3. As I said in the "Welcome" section of this website, (it bears constant repetition): Regarding the words "scum" and "scumbag" as an epithet used in self-defensive demonization against select individuals. Hey, what can I say? It is a long-proven statistical fact that negative political ads work. And since the so-called "left" uses lies, half-truths, demonization and the politics of personal destruction as standard political strategies, failure to engage in a little "turn about is fair play" merely makes it easier for the various assortments of disordered illiterate fascist control freaks to destroy individual freedom. As I said on my blog homepage, "Some folks just think they're smarter than everybody else, a higher form of life than everybody else. So, instead of engaging in good faith discussions about specific ideas, they simply resort to deception, sophistry, unspecificity, undefined terms, manipulation, demonization and the politics of personal destruction AS A MATTER OF PREFERRED STRATEGY to get their little spoiled-brat control-freak way. Such behavior is anathema to intellectual honesty, an open mind, a kind heart, free inquiry, the freedoms of thought and speech, and the free flow of information. It MUST be eternally warred against if humankind is to entertain a realistic hope of ever reaching its full spiritual and intellectual potential." To avoid the violence which is directly related to repression of free speech and the crushing of polite and civil discourse, I believe it is essential to engage in strategic tit-for-tat with wannabe-clever manipulative demonizers by openly calling them what they are: the anti-freedom, anti-Golden-Rule scum of the earth (aka "scumbags"). Accordingly, it doesn't bother me in the least to do so. No less brilliant a person than Jesus of Nazareth himself referred to the scumbags of his day as "hypocrites", "blind guides", "vipers" and "whitewashed sepulchres". To paraphrase Ann Coulter, Jesus was not some moron driving around in a Volvo with a "be nice to people" bumper sticker on it. So, having read The Art of Political War and Other Radical Pursuits by David Horowitz, I don't have any problem with calling reprobate "scum" what it is.

4. There is no such thing as "free". There are only things which were created by the labor of another person who doesn't get paid for their labor.
