The American Dream

11/30/2018

Eugene Ionesco once said that, “Ideologies separate us.  Dreams and anguish bring us together.” That was once true, but I challenge if it is still true today.  Just like Martin Luther King, you have to have a dream.  That dream, of course, was The American Dream…and that dream may well be dying.

As I mentioned in a recent post, Americans of all stripes fought together side-by-side in two world wars because they had a dream.  It was a dream of freedom, to be lived in a country (America) that cherished individual liberty.  It was a dream that almost everyone shared and so our differences were secondary. We could coexist with all of our imperfections, our biases and our differences in cultural values.

However, today, many people no longer have that same dream.  They would rather destroy what we have and start over.  They want to “fundamentally transform” America.  The problem, though, is that their vision is for a country where They get to impose their ideology and their values on the rest.  However, you will never know that is their objective. You will only hear that They represent you, the people, against the establishment.  However, the problem is that They are the establishment.  They are the 1%.

You need to understand the propaganda that’s used to convince people to vote them into power. So, when They ask you to join The Resistance to bring down the establishment, what They are really saying is that They want to remain in power only without being encumbered with the chains of a Republic.  The only rule of law would then be their rule of law.  There would be a new Golden Rule (i.e. he who has the most gold rules).

When They ask you to eradicate the white race, what They are really saying is that They want the white race marginalized so that it can not compete with them for power…for They are the establishment, They are the elite (mostly, the white race).

In the course of human affairs, revolutions are a fact of life, maybe, in some cases, even a necessity. After all, that’s how we wound up with America in the first place.  However, beware of those offering a new form of government where everyone will get their needs met (like, say, free healthcare for everyone).  There is no system that can provide everything to everyone. History has shown that our current form of government is the only one that can endure and prosper over time. The great political thinkers understood that.  Here’s a sample of what some of them said:

 

“When people find they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the Republic”.  – Benjamin Franklin

“The state is that great fiction by which everyone tries to live at the expense of everyone else.”  – Frederic Bastiat

“The trouble with Socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money.”           – Margaret Thatcher

        “The goal of socialism is communism.”  – Vladimir Lenin

 

Epilogue

There is a reason why the middle class is disappearing in America.  It’s not an accident. The middle class is being intentionally destroyed because it is the only group of people that will insist upon maintaining civil liberties.  Everyone else will simply insist on having others (read: the government) support them. You see, most of the middle class believes in The American Dream.
