We’re getting it from both sides, the leftists and the conservatives. And frankly, I’m really fed up and sick and tired of all this.
Both sides want to control the lives of others, throw people in jail who disagree or who dissent, or who do business in a way that’s not in accordance with the control freaks, or who eat or consume chemicals not approved by the gubmint, or who come from outside the territory and are not approved by the immigration commissars.
People on both sides just don’t want to leave others alone.
The “Green New Dealers” say they want to eliminate airplane travel, as well as all fossil fuels and cars. They want just electric cars? How will you juice up the cars? What will power up the electric cars? So they just want to outlaw travel, basically.
I guess they are like the conservatives who want to prevent people from traveling into the U.S., as well as harass Americans who want to travel outside the U.S. and return without harassment. Good luck with that.
The “Green New Dealers” also want to retrofit all buildings in the U.S., including houses, apartment buildings, office buildings, schools, churches.
To make it easier for them to make sure that all the buildings in America are getting rebuilt, what they really want is to eliminate all privately owned property in America. They want the government to seize the property, the homes and businesses. The government and its bureaucrat overlords will be the owners of the property.
In our homes the government overlords will be our landlords and we their obedient tenants. They must also take over all the buildings of churches or any houses of worship to make sure that they, too, will be rebuilt to the satisfaction of the “Green” dictators. And naturally that will give them more power to control religion (i.e. abolish it, like in the Soviet Union).
And their real intention is to nationalize the industries, just like in the Soviet Union, Cuba, Venezuela.The people on the left want to take over all industries and will try to impose bureaus with commissars who will attempt to run the industries, as though they can do better than the actual people who currently own and operate their businesses.
So in the process of their taking over industries, they will be stealing businesses that many people worked long and hard to build, all the labor and effort they put into it, now to be enslaved by those who will take it over.
For example regarding the
“Green Wheeling and Dealing” “Green New Deal” “democratic socialists” real intention of government takeovers of private industries, here is Marxine Waters letting the cat out of the bag:
Because of their narcissism and arrogance many of them really believe they have the ability to run industries better than those currently doing so. As Thomas DiLorenzo referenced F.A. Hayek in today’s article, the leftist activists have a “fatal conceit.”
But really it’s a control freak issue that these people have. They just like to have a lot of power and order others around. All these bossy little “green” dictators.
Here is Congressman John Dingell, the one who just died, on how we need ObamaCare (or, later on, single payer, “Medicare for All,” etc.) to “control the people”:
So, how will the “Green New Dealers” or “democratic socialists” administer over the forcible taking of all that property in the United States? Many sheeple will swallow the propaganda in which bureaucrats and their minions will convince them it’s for their own good, and that Mr. and Ms. Government Agent or Enforcer knows what’s best for them. Anyone who resists will be arrested or shot. That is how they did things in past socialist societies.
And here is the late Larry Grathwohl who as an FBI agent had infiltrated the Bill Ayers group Weather Underground in the 1970s, detailing how his interactions with those commie wackjobs and college professors (sorry for the redundancy) went, in this interview excerpt:
But the conservatives are no better. There are millions of them all over America who really believe that a government Wall on the border will solve the immigration problem. Like the leftists, the conservatives are also afflicted with short-sightedness. I think that their motivation is mainly out of hatred of foreigners. They are obsessed with discussing the victims of crimes committed by “illegals,” but do not seem to care about the many more victims of crimes committed by their own fellow Americans.
It’s all about foreigners, and keeping out foreigners. But it isn’t just keeping out foreigners, and this is where there is a connection between these nationalist conservatives and the leftists. With the conservatives, they believe that people who are not “citizens” should have restrictions imposed on their lives if they dare to set foot in America, or the non-citizens should be kept out, and with a Wall if necessary. What matters here is this “citizenship” thing, which really means government authorization.
The conservatives are really just as authoritarian and socialistic as the leftists, in which for an individual to have legitimacy one must have government authorization or approval (“citizenship”).
And regarding this obsession that Donald Trump and his sheeple followers have with a government Wall like that will cure any problems society might have, I have a feeling that Trump is acting on behalf of the people on the left, like helping them to set up the closed-in society for them in advance. But I could be wrong.
Like the commie thugs on the left, the conservatives and ditto-heads just don’t want to leave people alone. The conservatives want to harass, molest, kidnap and throw into a cage any travelers who are not authorized by government bureaucrats in Washington, regardless of whether the travelers are peaceful. The conservative thugs want to arrest businessmen who hire non-government-authorized workers. And again, it has nothing to do with being “concerned” that immigrants are committing crimes against Americans, because if so then they would be expressing equal concern about Americans committing crimes against other Americans. But no, the conservatives are not doing that. It has to do with hating foreigners, quite frankly. It has to do with their brainwashed nationalism and tribalism.
And also, the real causes of the immigration problem have to do with the drug war and U.S. government interventionism and funding in Central and South American countries, such as Honduras. But the conservatives are too short-sighted to see that. Which they don’t WANT to see, by the way, because they support the drug war. The conservatives support government goons harassing and throwing in a cage those who might have ingested or might be in possession of some government-disapproved chemical or plant.
Honestly, between the power-hungry leftists and the conservatives and nationalists, FREEDOM is under attack from all sides!
What we really need is a free society. Just leave people alone, and liberate them, and let them have their freedom, for crying out loud.
A free society in which everyone comes and goes as they please, no showing ID or papers, no being stopped by goons. And America is supposed to be a society of individualism, in which each individual is left alone by gubmint unless one is actually suspected of violating the person or property of others.
And people come and go as they please as long as they don’t use aggression or coercion against others, as long as they don’t steal or defraud, as long as they are peaceful. And don’t trespass on private property, or else they could get hurt by a private property owner exercising one’s right to keep and bear arms (that no one would be interfering with because it’s a free society).
And no, traveling along “public” property (i.e. unowned) is not “trespassing,” because there’s no such thing as some sort of common ownership of “public property” by the “citizens” that conservatives try to promote. That would be very communistic or socialistic. Any common ownership of the territory as a whole would really negate the concept of private property within the territory. But sadly, conservatives have as much a hard time understanding private property as do the leftists.
In a free society all trades, transactions, contracts are voluntary, and would be only the business of those who are parties to such contracts, trades and transactions. The trades of labor and employment and goods and services would not be interfered with by third parties. And no one is allowed to steal anyone’s earnings or wealth away, including the government! And people consume whatever they want, healthy or harmful.
But we have these people on the left and the conservatives who obediently love and worship their government overlords to decide for them what’s best for them, and to protect them from “bad guys.” And both sides want to usurp control over private property and contracts using armed powers of government to do it. Both sides want to control the lives of others, but they shouldn’t be allowed to do these things.
