Sometimes, Wisdom Is Just Wise

Via my friend Borepatch:

I find it very hard to argue with this:

Leftism has not won these arguments, the Left has simply punished those who argue on the other side: and when I say ‘The Left’ I mean particularly Leftist intellectuals in the mass media, public administration, the education system, and bureaucracies generally.

What can be concluded?

Our society is far more corrupt than people realize – why wouldn’t it be? What’s to stop it? But just how corrupt it is impossible to know, even approximately, since any ‘evidence’ consists of lies built upon lies.

Our society is far less smart than people realize, because good arguments are punished and demonized so bad arguments (or no arguments at all, but merely faked moral outrage/ scapegoat hatred) wins vital arguments by default.

In sum, we live in a world ruled by dumb liars.

Asa I oft respond to another wise Internet blogger ( e.g. Rev. Paul)…

AMEN!

  1. good arguments are punished and demonized

    Yep.
    Read anything written or spoken by Giffords/Kelly (and any other anti gun group) as prime examples of “You are wrong/evil/dangerous because we disagree with you and we don’t care about facts”.
    The latest Giffords email was sickening praise of Carolyn McCarthy. She is leaving congress and will be missed because she was such a “great fighter” for restricting God given rights. Apparently leading the charge against the “shoulder thing that goes up” is all it takes to gain their admiration.

  2. Wisely has it been said that one shouldn’t try to argue with idiots: they’ll drag you down to their level and beat you by experience.

    On another topic, glad to see (hear? read?) that you’re feeling better … at least a little.

  3. It’s emotion vs. facts, and facts are losing… again… Agree completely!
