By “petty” I don’t mean insignificant. I refer to narrow-minded and spiteful. I mean the petty grievances of trivial minded, bureaucratic people.
Liberalism, socialism, communism start at the top, trapped in the logical deductive brain. They militate against the freedom of the body politic and free enterprise. They do not develop from within the population. They squelch people from above like ideological suffocating bricks. They do not develop like organisms. They are restrictive, constraining philosophies.
Communists are anal retentive, obsessive-compulsives. They are afraid of lack of control so they programmatically design an overly intrusive government. They are neurotics who fear freedom and have anxiety attacks about loss of rigidity. They have petty souls. They are lost in the little picture rather than the panorama. They are afraid to step outside the framework of their hedged in philosophy. They are snapshots rather than free spirited movies.
Communists want to organize the economy, jobs and life styles so that they don’t have to confront the emptiness of the universe or the magical presence of a God.
Communists organize because they are afraid of chaos. They are afraid of chaos because they don’t trust their minds and are worried that they might themselves actually be criminals, rapists or uncontrolled animals. They do not know themselves so they hide behind government; they worry that they themselves are ungovernable. They organize because they are afraid of openness. They have wild souls so they try to arrange themselves into little governmental bricks, walls of organizational solitude. They are cowards, afraid of freedom.
Communists are anxious that they can’t compete within society. So they structure a system where everyone has a job and no one’s is considered better than the others. A doctor and a garbage man have equal status. That way they all can feel good about themselves regardless of their embarrassing lack of accomplishments.
Communism reduces the prestige of successes and raises the esteem of failures. It is an inverse system of government that has failed more times in more countries than any other form of government. Its essence is reinvigorating the prestige of failure.
However, communism is a star system where the big shots in the Communist party are the rock stars. It steals the prestige from the multiple successes in society and hands it to the bureaucratic, angry politicians. Its existence depends on stepping on the little people. It’s ironic that communism boasts about distributing a fair share when all it does is take from people and peddle to the politicians and party members.
Obama wants a consistent, socialistic system. As a dope smoking mediocrity in private school and college he would have never succeeded if he didn’t have a governmental avenue to his success. America is becoming a socialistic country where freedom to succeed is usurped by structured political bureaucracy. Neurotic narcissists are always comfortable within the structure of governmental tyranny. Obama sees himself reflected in the pool of large government. He then pushes us into that pool and we drown like Narcissus in debt and military chaos throughout the world.
People think that Obama is bright because he speaks well. What difference do words make when he is bankrupting the country? And if he is so bright why does he sound like every other sophomoric liberal in Brooklyn? He speaks in so many clichés that he has become a cliché.
Brooklyn is where my boxing gym is—Gleason’s. Thank God that I can get hit in the head there every day and clear up my thoughts. His pontificating words fall from my ears like wax. It’s too bad that they stick to so many of my naïve, liberal friends’ ear canals.
I am embarrassed for the millions of people who are fooled by him. Stupid is the predisposition to say “yes” to his childish ideas when all the signs say “no.”
And the stupid local liberals think that conservatives are stupid? Yet I live in a dialectic of various social philosophies while liberals line up against the wall to shoot themselves in the feet. In an argument with liberals, they never know what I will say next. I can predict their every opinion before they spout it.
