Today is May Day. The ‘traditional’ pagan holiday to celebrate the rites of Spring (Maypoles and such) and remembrance of the great socialist/communist/marxist revolution(s). You may notice these are NOT in caps. This is intentional.
I believe in The United States of America. Warts and all. I do NOT believe that Progressing past this Constitutional Republic is a good idea. Utopian ideas NEVER work, in fact they bring about death and destruction – for the good of the People, of course! Dystopia, not Utopia.
What is my evidence? History. Show me a communist/socialist/marxist/national socialist/totalitarian/we elitists know better society that functions well AND preserves individual rights, and I might change my view.
Until then, stop this nanny-Stating, the ‘this is for your own good’, we’re nudging you in the direction we want, surveillance cameras everywhere, gov’t spying on your Internet, equipping the cops as Sturmabteilung stuff.
Justice William O. Douglas said, “The right to be let alone is indeed the beginning of all freedom.”
I perceive far-leftist folks as either pie-in-the-sky dreamers who think Utopia is possible, if only the non-believers would just come on board, OR, control freaks who demand we come along for the ride, because they know best. Of course, both are wrong.
Just like the right-wing nut bars who want access to my Internet or my bedroom, for the common good.
We are NOT a collective. Resistance is NOT futile!
Workers of the
World United States – Think for Yourselves! Your individuality IS for the common good!
As it is for the Republic.
