*** OBAMUNISTS UNITE! ***
“Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.”
“Liberal” socialism (communism) is basically only a plea to defer one’s own god-given rightful responsibility to take self-reliant responsibility for one’s own actions, by diluting it in, and so giving them up to, The Group (to any group, to every group)! To trade one’s responsibility to become objectively, factually right, for the putative right to remain irresponsibly wrong.
i.e: “I didn’t do it – ONLY The GROUP did it! Whee!”
(Other semantic variants on this puerile meme are “The SYSTEM” – It was a Systemic Problem! I didn’t do it – ONLY The SYSTEM did it!” … and the same with “The Procedures,” etc)!
They scheme for, and pretend to imagine, that one can have greedy rights, without a corollory of enduring the reciprocal need for onerous responsibilities.
Some assume foreign criminals (i.e: moslem terrorists) have some sort of right to “basic human rights,” while ignoring that all real rights are commensurate with responsibilities!
There’s something called the social contract, which is based on the Golden Rule of Law (which defines all morality simply as “Do Not Attack First!”) and which so enables trust, progress, and civilization. This contract holds that, only by Responsibly upholding this Rule, are you afforded Rights.
Your only real right is to not be attacked first, and your only real responsibility is to not attack others first. As that contract defines your right, it does not thereby supersede it.
When you renege on your responsibility, you become a criminal (because, when you decide to attack others first, then, by definition your choice defines you as a predatory, criminal aggressor, and they as your innocent victims – there’s no two ways about it)!
Upholding the contract also defines you as a free citizen; when you break it, you effectively, freely, give up your right to be a full citizen.
When you ignore your civic responsibility and decide to become a criminal, you lose your civil rights (say, to vote) for the duration of your punishment.
But if you’re the citizen of a foreign country, you have no such specific rights to lose, only the universal right to remain free, which is dependant on your responsible observance of all others’ similar rights (to not deprive them of their rights to life, freedom, and to own property) and so your own choice to do so should justly deprive you of the right to freely move about to continue to harm others.
In the old days, only real live individual human citizens had rights, while all mere groups (of individuals) were, at best, assigned some temporary, revokable privileges.
But these days, the criminally negligent, infantile delinquent liberals prefer to pretend that since all humans are falliable and therefore potentially, erratically dangerous, (much as they themselves prefer to see themselves, as an excuse for their chosen irrationalities) only groups should be given rights, while all mere human individuals should at most, be assigned some temporary, revokable privileges.
When groups are idolatrously given rights, all real, individual human citizens automatically lose them, and become slaves to the idol of the collective.
Emocrats are immoral relativists who prefer to use the evasion tactic known as the Argumentum Tu Quoque to push their group-might-made-rights agenda of avoiding personal self-reliant responsibility by basically claiming:
“”EVIL ISN’T EVIL BECAUSE WE ALL (‘The Groups’) DO IT TOO! Whee!”
Emocrats don’t use the higher, cognitive brain functions – they only emote. Too much reacting, not enough problem solving; the fruits of always buying into and re-selling pre-packaged victimology scenarios all the time; they find it much easier to blame others and do nothing, than to help them selves by accepting personal self-reliant responsibility.
So, never having any facts which would ever agree with their perpetual irrationality, the left must always resort to the slanderous evasions known collectively as the critical thinking logical fallacies (the deflective ad-hominem personal attacks, the distractive strawman red-herrings, and of course the immoral relativist’s favorite, the tu quoque – i.e: “islam isn’t evil because we all do it too! Whee!”).
Isn’t it funny that people who actually have facts, rarely (if ever) seem to feel the need to indulge in fallacies?
The ever-Moving-Forward lemmings or Progressives, only ever really “progress” from the responsibility to become factually, objectively right, to the opinion that they have a subjective right to remain irresponsible wrong!
Their motto is: “Property IS Theft!” but I say: “Communism IS Crime!”
Giving groups rights enables the might-makes-right, tooth and claw jungle-law, and abolishes the proportional deterrant response of an eye for an eye. Idolatry is a crime because it’s ony a deliberate, negligent evasion of one’s responsibilities; fraudulently claiming illegal rights.
