We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Interesting. In the "Dropout" article, there is a line which deserves to be repeated over and over.
This is, at its very core, what drives the differentiation between political views.
Liberals fear and hate failure. This is why they enjoy the fruits of the entrepreneur, but wish to deny the entrepreneur his just reward by taxing him. They are jealous of others who are willing to take risks, they are jealous of those who accepted failure is possible.
Liberals believe that protecting all of us from failure is a "good".
Liberals don't understand how what they want increases moral hazard, and they don't understand how moral hazard undermines and destroys market conditions.
Or they do, and want to see this happen so they can pursue their political agenda.
Can't be said better. 'Lose' is the reciprocal of 'win'. They and only they enable each other.
'Moral hazard' is the great unspoken theme of the entire left. The term is a sweet euphemism for 'self-corruption', which is the process of leftwardization. Egged on by false prophets, in an activity known as 'supporting the Democratic Party platform'.
--thye universal constant in human affairs has got to be Murphy's Law. i mean, first the 'if it can, it will' Murphy baseline produces, in the best and brightest culture there at the heart of the only continent that counts, a total leader as an embodiment --and he's a compleat murder-death worshipper!
"Good Gravy," exclaims we, "...what could be worse?"
Well, lessee, while all this horror is being perpetrated on the innocent, whilst this self-appointed (at a minimum) Anti-Christ rampages in a sea of blood, there'll be no smoking, dammit!
