Skip to comments.Inverted Morality
Posted on 11/03/2012 6:39:30 PM PDT by Alex Baker
Dinesh DSouza recently debated Michael Shermer at Oregon State University. The debate topic was, Is Christianity Good for American Politics. DSouza is an author, educator and, most recently, the creator of the movie, 2016: Obamas America. Shermer is the founder and publisher of Skeptic Magazine.
This short clip conveys two very important points about morality and political philosophy. Dinesh has the same ability that Milton Friedman had to clearly explain complex ideas.
Compulsion removes the virtue from human interactions. Free choice is a pre-requisite of moral action.
Dinesh make good use of the wagon analogy. There are people pulling the wagon in this country and there are people sitting in the wagon. Our current wagonmaster is doing 3 things that are making our situation worse. He is whipping the horses that are pulling the wagon, rather than thanking them. He is filling the wagon with many more riders. And he is relentlessly teaching the people riding in the wagon to be angry and envious rather than grateful.
We should not be surprised. After all, generating anger and a sense of entitlement is what a community organizer does. That is the job description.
