Thomas Sowell aggregation: Killing the evil race card and thwarting its evil users — Part 1

When engaged in the tit-for-tat polemical opposition to the highly manipulative so-called "leftist" propaganda of various professional, play-the-race-card-for-money, scumbags1 such as Jesse Jerkson and Al Not-So-Sharpton, it is not only extremely useful, but even necessary, to demonstrate that it is entirely possible for people of all shapes, sizes, genders and colors to share similar ideas on various subjects without being called "racist". Thomas Sowell is a so-called "black" — I very much prefer that word to the divisive hyphenated "African-American" which, as a matter of calculated strategy divides (aka "balkanizes" ) Americans into tribal groups for the benefit of the neofeudalistic global debt-as-money oligarchs — Ph.D. economist, author, social theorist, political philosopher and general all-around serious thinker and good guy whose work I consider indispensable to the cause of self-ownership and ordered liberty. This is all the more so because such as the above-mentioned race-hustling scum inevitably resorts to the nasty habit of referring to such historical giants as George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, Thomas Paine, Ludwig von Mises, Frédéric Bastiat, Friedrich Hayek, Murray Rothbard, ad infinitum, and any other noteworthy person who might disagree with immoral, sophistic, collectivist, anti-self-ownership "steal-from-A-and-give-to-B" ideology/propaganda as being "racist".

I bought and read several of Sowell's books, and highly recommend them to everybody I know for their enormous "common sense", "ordinary-citizen", "plain-language" educational value. If you guessed that I am a huge fan, you guessed right!

FOOTNOTES:

1. It bears constant repetition: explaining the words "scum" and "scumbag" as an epithet used in self-defensive demonization against select individuals and/or ideologies. Hey, what can I say? It is a long-proven statistical fact that negative political ads are in fact effective. 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 "scum" what it is. Surely a huge majority of people, especially black people, would agree that any person or group who sincerely believes in slavery or pedophilia, by way of example, qualify as "scum". Point made.
