As the Western Left is post-Christian, it is also post-liberal and post-liberty.
Orwellianly, the Left claims to be liberal and freedom loving, but is in fact oppressive and demading of conformity. There are countless examples, e.g. shouting down speakers whose opinions they don't like, "hate" crimes, speech codes, etc. The Left is overtly or covertly Marxist, and Marxism requires an oppressive totalitarian government for its implementation.
Though the Left professes a love for diversity, it in fact demands conformity, and Leftists themselves are slaves to groupthink and even fashion.
The Left is also selective and capricious.
Certain groups and individuals are selected as victims, others as oppressors; some as favored, others as vilified; and this is done capriciously and with disregard of fairness or logic, though xenophilia and iconoclasm are the general tendencies, and in its typical slavishness to groupthink, once such categories are selected, Leftists mindlessly accept the entire group paradigm.
Special benefits are endowed upon the "victims" and the "favored", special abuse inflicted upon the "oppressors" and "vilified", and herein justice is abnegated.
The Left loves powerful, oppressive government armed with numerous draconian laws (they call them "laws with teeeth in them") that cannot possibly be enforced uniformly or justly. This allows them to enforce the laws selectively, granting leniency and clemency to those they like, showing no mercy to those they dislike, and using the threat of enforcement as a very effective means of coercion.
If all this is reminiscent of Adolf Hitler's National Socialism and The Third Reich and the Marxist Soviet Union under Stalin, it's no coincidence. Both were Western Leftist designs, and if the Left had its way, a regime such as these horrors would be established in the United States.
Very well stated!
WWII Axis powers were also Italy and Japan, with the USSR for two years. Don't forget the other "goose-steppers," who were LOCKSTEP with The Third Reich.
All that was 3 generations ago, the last century. Hitler was born in the 19th century and didn't step into Germany until 1923....83 years ago. Long time.
Lenin, Stalin and the USSR faded away 15 years ago.
CHINA, Cuba and much of southeast Asia are still communist. They are NOW and TODAY and in our immediate future for a long time.
China blocks the Internet. China made a deal with google, that is, to block all sites to the Chinese that involve "free China," that sect that the government hates and other "seditious" sites.
It's my GUESS that Cuba, Cambodia, Vietnam and such also censor the Internet, newspapers and all media.
Leftism-Communism live on with the Chinese, all 1.4 billion of them. The Communist Party is still here in the USA. My guess is that in some places, it's THRIVING....Sleazywood? Ivory Towers?
Where, oh where, is all the hatred, outcry and warnings about THEM? They are our "buddies" these days.
Misplaced detente, imho.
