Sigh...Every ten-twenty years or so we must re-educate a new generation of snowflakes as to why nuclear weapons are still necessary to counter those possessed by potential adversaries. Don’t they learn this stuff in school? Dumb question, I know. They teach them unilateral disarmament assuming that good will will make them reciprocate.
Develop the illusion that total disarmament by the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.A few decades of teaching phony commie values in the public schools (those schools themselves being a goal mentioned in the tenth plank of communism in the Manifesto) will produce rotten fruits.
Communist goal #3
What is wrong with our state of mind? First and foremost, we have been thinking the way the communists want us to think. Our Founding Fathers would be alarmed to learn how confused many of our people have become over such fundamental problems as coexistence, disarmament, free trade, the United Nations, recognition of Red China, and a host of related problems. Instead of maintaining a state of intellectual vigilance, we have taken communist slogans as the major premises for too many of our conclusions.
The Naked Communist, chapter 12
It is a Leftist thing. I have long viewed it as one of the cleavage points between Leftists and Conservatives.
We conservatives recognize that there is evil in the world as an integral part of human nature, and being nice to them won’t get you more than being taken advantage of at best, and at worst, killed. Summarized as “Some people just need killing.”
Leftists have this perverted notion that people are inherently good, and they are corrupted and made evil by something in their environment (such as Poverty, Ignorance, and Disease, and, in the last few decades, things like “social injustice”, “economic injustice”, and sexism, racism, you name it) MADE them evil, and that if you can take away those things, somehow those people can be cured and some Utopia can be achieved.
We know better. There are simply evil people out there, and some of them quite enjoy being evil.
So it is no surprise that Leftists believe that if we put down our guns, they will put down theirs. After all, they love their children too.
