Moral Collapse After Decades Of Leftist Policies

Moral Collapse Moral Collapse After Decades of Leftist Policies

“Leftist policies harm society’s moral character,” says Dennis Prager, syndicated radio host and author of,  “Still the Best Hope: Why the World Needs American Values to Triumph.”

America’s largest cities and many states have been run for decades by liberal mayors and administrations and now we are seeing them sinking towards bankruptcy, such as the decay called Detroit. Michigan governor, Rick Snyder, has decreed a takeover of this city government and hired an outside emergency manager with sweeping powers similar to that of a bankruptcy judge to try to salvage this city. Such powers include the ability to toss out unaffordable contracts with public employees unions and vendors, put city assets up for sale, consolidate or eliminate government departments and make further service cuts. Needless to say this is met with much opposition from the public employees and unions.

While the liberals are so certain about the moral superiority of liberal policies, those policies actually diminish a society’s moral character. This tends to make a people worse.

The bigger the government, the less citizens do for each other. Europeans give far less to charity and volunteer less than do Americans. Tocqueville, in the early 19th Century, admired how much Americans–through myriad associations–took care of each other.

Then in the 30s, Franklin Roosevelt began the movement of America toward a European welfare state–vastly expanded by Democrat Presidents since. Churches, Rotary clubs, other free loan societies and other voluntary associations took care of most. But as the state grew, all associations declined. Also, citizens of liberal welfare states become increasingly narcissistic. People’s disdain of work, erodes character, then they develop an entitlement mentality–always a “right” which reinforces this sense of entitlement. “The welfare state is a Ponzi scheme,” says Prager. “The bigger the government, the greater corruption.” ‘Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.’

Big businesses can be corrupt, but eventually they are caught or go out of business. Government cannot go out of business. Corrupt businesses cannot print money and they cannot arrest you.

Liberals, in spite of all other evidence, will not respond to arguments to refute the consequences of the welfare state– but cite things like “social justice” and they are so “compassionate” (as long as it is with government money or other people’s money). They label their opponents as “selfish” or “greedy” or they plain “don’t care.” It’s a ‘feel good’ mentality.

According to Dr. Lyle H G. Rossiter, Jr. M.D., and a psychiatrist, in his book, The Liberal Mind, says “modern liberalism irrationality can only be understood as the product of psychopathy.” “He calls it a massive transference neurosis and projection of mostly perceived wrongs when young, so they are therefore victims and so must be others–all this acted out in the world’s political arenas, with devastating effects on the institutions of liberty.” They are going to save, through the government, all the victims they perceive around them. It is infantile, Rossiter claims.

And they don’t have a clue as to how stupid they really are, how misinformed, whether is is over global warming, type of light bulbs we must use, extreme environmentalism, or abortion, liberal education, women’s rights, racism, but just regurgitate what they read or hear from the liberal media or professors in the universities  They speak in mantras.

Is it all like a river with God at the bottom, with the devil working the currents, with the seeds and crumbs floating on the top of the river, and with the liberals regurgitating the crumbs and the conservatives being torn along by the currents, –now trying to swim upstream to try to save the river and the country.

  1. THE CLOSE LINK BETWEEN COMMUNISM AND SOCIALISM

    The following by Don Jasmin is from The Fundamentalist Digest, February-March 2013: “The organization known as ‘The Socialist International’ [TSI] has been a mixture of one-world slanted Communists and global oriented Socialists since its origin in 1864. Karl Marx, Communism’s founder, was its first ‘honorary secretary.’ While communists and socialists have internally squabbled over its control since its founding, both factions have always sought the same ‘common goal’: a ‘socialistic world government.’

    In another related article, this writer summarizes some of the goals and activities of the 20th International Socialist Congress [ISC] This article, however, discloses the close links of the ISC and left-wing members of the U. S. Congress. ‘In our country, the principal affiliate of the Socialist International is the Democratic Socialists of America [DSA].’ According to a reliable report, the ‘DSA boasts of working hand -in-glove with the Congressional Progressive Caucus [CPC], whose recent list of members shows 78 Democrats and one Independent…’

    ‘In a 2010 report to the Communist Party USA’s National convention, Party official David Bell called the Congressional Progressive Caucus “our allies in Congress.” Current Progressive Caucus co-chairs are Congressmen Keith Ellison [a committed Muslim] of MN and Raul Grijalva of AZ.
    One of the [CPA’s] vice-chairs is newly elected [lesbian] Tammy Baldwin of WI.’ While all the CPC members swear allegiance to the U. S. Constitution, they all ‘support increasing socialism here at home, and are consistent backers of UN empowerment–both key goals in the drive for world government sought by communists and socialists.’

    Norman Thomas, six time Socialist Party Presidential candidate, said, ‘The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But, under the name of liberalism, they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day American will be a socialist nation, without knowing it happened.’ In 1944, Thomas stated, ‘I no longer need to run as a presidential Candidate for the Socialist Party; the Democrat Party has adopted our platform.’”

    THE DESTRUCTIVE RESULTS OF SOCIALISM

    (Friday Church News Notes, February 1, 2013, http://www.wayoflife.org,fbns@wayoflife.org, 866-295-4143).

    The following is excerpted from “Obama’s America Looks Like Detroit,” Terrence Jeffrey, The Detroit News, Dec. 15, 2012: “Detroit is the reduction ad absurdum of President Obama’s economic policies. What happened to Detroit? It is achieving socialism in one city. Traditional two-parent families and the productive taxpaying citizens they produce have fled. In 1950, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, Detroit had 1.9 million people and was the fifth largest city in the nation.

    By 2000, its population had dropped to 951,000; by 2010 to 714,000 and by 2011, to 707,000. What has happened to the people who remain? The Census Bureau estimates there are 563,055 people age 16 or older in the city who could potentially work and be part of the labor force. But only 54.3% of these–or 306,000 –actually do. The 258,000 people in Detroit who neither work nor seek work outnumber the 224,846 residents who have jobs. And of those who work, 34,500–or 15.3% work for the government. Thus this city that boasted 1.9 million residents in 1950 has only 190,346 private-sector workers today.”
