Quote of the day—Jeffrey Folks

At its heart, liberalism is a gnostic religion, and the essence of that religion is the believer’s faith that he possesses the means of changing the world for the better. The belief that the world must be changed requires there to be a mass of individuals whose lives are in need of change. Following this logic, it is the liberal, not those deplorables in need of change, who knows what must be changed. For liberals, there must be a mass of people in need of this knowledge for life to make sense.

Leftists versus the People
[Substitute “leftist” for “liberal” and “socialism/communism” for “liberalism” of course.

It’s a reasonable hypothesis that would appear, in the general case, to fit the available data. If true, we must conclude they despise the very concept of individual rights and respond appropriately.—Joe]

  1. The religion of leftism/progressivism/socialism is for the outer party rubes.

    The inner party knows that it is a straight power play, and they just have to chant the catechism, publicly make the right votive offerings and wear the ceremonial garb to retain the power to do what they want and destroy anyone in their way.

    The inner party clerisy knows that the outer party faithful will ignore any transgressions of hypocrisy because, overall, their faith leaders are good for the overall religion. The evidence will be destroyed, the truthful rumors squashed.

    It must be so, for while their religion has a sacrament of confession, where the guilty will insincerely mouth a formal prayer before pivoting to their next holy crusade, transgression muted, there is no sacrament of forgiveness. Stop being useful to the faith for a moment, and all the old sins will be brought out to justify casting the fallen into the outer darkness with the infidels.

    • “The inner party clerisy knows that the outer party faithful will ignore any transgressions of hypocrisy because, overall, their faith leaders are good for the overall religion. The evidence will be destroyed, the truthful rumors squashed. ”

      To quote Tim Minchin from his poem STORM:

      “SCIENCE adjusts its’ views based on what’s observed. FAITH is the DENIAL of observation so that belief can be preserved.”

  2. Satan tells Eve, “You will not surely die” thus creating the false doctrine of the immortal soul. He then tells her “..your eyes shall be opened and ye shall be as gods, knowing both good and evil”. Genesis chapter 3.

    And thus the leftist authoritarian mindset, and that concept of the god-king, was implanted into Mankind.

    Folks calls it a gnostic religion, and in fact it is the very doctrine of satan. Most of the ostensibly “Christian” religions have embraced the same doctrine, which is why most thinking, discerning persons (who have NOT yet read the actual words of Christ), have decided that Christianity is a joke.

    Satan’s doctrine has built quite an effective system, and it is ruling the world’s politics, religion, science, education and economy. For now.

  3. Appropriate response. That’s truly the deeper question. How does one response to the obvious lies, theft, murder? The in your face power grabs? Those above the law smirks. Knowing all along, the longer they are allowed to go on, the worse the end state will be.
    Appropriate response. Not the response you want to give. Seems to be the curse of living in interesting times.
    P.S. And speaking of pencil necks. Doesn’t Schiff look like “Rango” the lizard?

    • I deliberately left the action vague. What is appropriate for one person is going to be inconceivable for another and vice versa.
