In Response To The Left

In response to this (re: The Left)

“Ideological descendants of Marx and Rousseau now lead the Democratic Party and they have turned it into a disloyal opposition to an increasingly accommodating GOP.

…a pseudo-intellectual sinkhole filled with perverse, tried-and-failed ideas repulsive to the majority of Americans.”

Kim comments today:

“Tried-and-failed”… I must remember to use that one the next time I have to explain to some Lefty puke why socialism is a really bad idea.”

It won’t work.  History will not touch a socialist.  All past failures happened because the wrong people were in charge.  It’s like trying to convince someone that his perpetual motion generator will never, ever work.  He knows, from direct observation, that it came extremely close on his last try.

That no one else ever made it work is proof of nothing.  There is a first time for everything, and our inventor knows, deep down, that he has the right idea.  The right idea will work.  Somehow it will work.  It must.  Then the major problems of the ages will be solved.  Just… need…. to keep… tweaking.

The problem with the socialist and with the perpetual motion inventor is they both fail to understand basic laws of nature.  Their theories violate those laws.  End of story.

The perpetual motion inventor I can tolerate– he stays out of my face.  I can laugh at him from a distance and he’ll leave me alone.

  1. And if you do convince him that socialism doesn’t work, he’ll become an extreme environmentalist. He’ll promote the end of industrial civilization, so that no one will ever bring up his mistaken belief that socialism was the best way to organize industrial civilization.

    If he’s really serious, he’ll advocate the extinction of the human race, so no one will ever mention any of his errors.

  2. An essential part of post-modernist/deconstructionist philosophy is that facts, data and logic simply do not matter.

    In that world view, there are no such things as facts, only “differing opinions”, or “subjective viewpoints”. An objective reality simply does not exist. (The only exception to this rule, of course, is their own statements with regard to absolutes…that there aren’t any except for THEIR absolutes).

    It would be funny, if it weren’t for the fact that these twits have taken over the vast majority of academia, pedagogy, and government. It is their actions in that last category that makes it impossible to ignore them.

  3. Sorry about not giving proper credit where credit is due, the correction has been made.

    Excellent analogy.
