“When idealism meets common sense and they clash.” (just think about this for a moment)
Respect for law and order has been necessary from prehistoric times through the present. Humans have always needed safety and security and order from chaos and anarchy. No society has lasted without law and order.
The exact opposite of this situation are the mentally deficient humans who crave chaos and anarchy. Originally they were banished from the tribe to exist on their own. We have sensationalized the outlaw in our own society in all of our media: newspapers, books, pamphlets, movies, videos and songs, etc. This has only encouraged the outlaw to prey upon the innocent. It has also encouraged those in our justice system such as judges, attorneys and elected officials to be lenient instead of firm which exacerbates the problem. When this is the case, the jobs of law enforcement on the ground: police, FBI, military and various security organizations are made extremely difficult, if not impossible at times. Our security and safety are assured and supported from the top down. Citizens support but have no real authority. Government at all levels support by assignment and funding. Our safety and security need to be the highest priority.
The outlaw, whether thug, gangbanger, common criminal, white collar or terrorist is a bully. And all bullies have the same misguided mentality. I found out personally in elementary school that there is only one way to deal with a bully. Force. You must stand up straight and not back down. If you are pushed or knocked down, you must get right back up and confront in exactly the same way you deal with an out-of-control dog: a folded newspaper or a firm smack on the nose. And you must firmly back this up with whatever degree of force is necessary. The best illustration is the character of Ralphie in the movie “A Christmas Story.” He and his little brother are badgered throughout the movie until he finally snaps and confronts the bully with force. He is never bothered again. This same scenario happens in schools, colleges, and workplaces at the state and national level and also between nations. When the leaders at any of these levels are strong, there is very little problem. When they are weak, things at any level start to fall apart.
The infiltration of the “politically correct” movement into our society and government has made us weak at every level. Everyone is afraid to confront and back it up out of fear. And this is the legacy of PC: fear of lawsuits, fear of the media, fear of grassroots movements and gangs and thugs, demotion and job loss. And this is backed-up by fear of, and in, the departments of justice for the same reasons. Censorship goes hand in hand with fear. Fear of saying the wrong thing or even being accused of saying the wrong thing. Censorship strangles free speech, and fear strangles freedom.
The preceding are the basic tenets of socialism along with liberalizing (dumbing down) education and muzzling gun owners. All of these tenets very gradually pave the way for the benevolent dictator to enter and fix (control) everything. Keep in mind that no society has survived the evils of socialism and its inevitable result – communism. No independent thinking, inventing, art, music or advances in technology have survived this evil anywhere in the history of the earth.
We are creeping dangerously close. WAKE UP! We are sliding, edging, being nudged into full socialism. It is time to stand up and confront the aforementioned basic tenets of socialism and say Stop! Enough! We already have laws and a constitution and a bill of rights. We don’t need a bully or any form of outlaw to show us a better way. We need to say Halt! Or we will use whatever force is necessary to stop you and your movement. We the people are singing the same song of freedom as our forebears who fought in our own Revolutionary War. Yankee Doodle. Don’t tread on me. And now, “God Bless America.” For ourselves and our children, God bless the United States of America!
