Liberals Desire People Control
Have modern Liberals abandoned individualism and embraced collectivism?
Modern liberalism is a development within liberal ideology that has revised some of the ideas of classical liberalism. Some classical liberals argue that modern liberalism has abandoned individualism and embraced collectivism to the extent that it has abandoned a belief in the free market and the minimal state and endorsed economic and social intervention.
An alternative view is that modern liberalism has built on and revised core liberal ideas rather than abandoned them, much like the relationship between traditional conservatism and the New Right. The two schools of thought in this case agree on the same core values and goals, but the way in which they go about attempting to achieve them is different. Thus the modern liberal case for government is based on a belief in developmental individualism (linked to human flourishing), and positive freedom (viewed as personal fulfilment). The modern liberal case for state intervention is an equivocal one: they only support intervention when individuals can’t help themselves, usually because of social disadvantage.
A further view could be that modern liberalism is characterised by an attempt to reconcile individualism with collectivism.
Collectivism is the belief that collective social action is morally and practically superior to individual self-striving. It highlights the social aspect of human nature and portrays collective bodies or social groups as meaningful entities.
The Mainstream Media Is Propaganda
In his book Abuse of Language, Abuse of Power, the German Catholic philosopher Josef Pieper wrote the following: “That the existential realm of man could be taken over by pseudorealities whose fictitious nature threatens to become indiscernible is truly a depressing thought. And yet, the Platonic nightmare, I hold, possesses an alarming contemporary relevance. For the general public is being reduced to a state where people are not only unable to find out about the truth but also become unable even to search for the truth because they are satisfied with deception and trickery that have determined their convictions, satisfied with a fictitious reality created by design through the abuse of language.”
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton Says Guns At Church Could Protect Against Shootings
The attorney general of Texas, Ken Paxton, said this about the mass shooting in Sutherland Springs. This is going to happen again. But Paxton said on “Fox News Sunday,” at least we have the opportunity to have conceal carry. And so there’s always the opportunity the gunman will be taken out before he has the opportunity to kill very many people. Attorney General Paxton, who’s a Republican, joins us from Beaumont, Texas. Welcome to the program.
Forming a Church Safety Team
Checking our Stopwatch of Death© database back to 1975, we find that church murders have been increasing with alarming frequency. Regrettably, ignoring the problem is only trolling for a tragedy. It is perfectly normal for us to not want to think about violence, much less murder, or mass murder in church. Today, however, safe havens do not occur naturally, they require our personal attention, intention, planning, and effort. A Volunteer Safety Team (VST) is certainly a practical consideration.
Liberals hate Guns
Liberalism is an ideology that believes in control, not freedom. That’s why liberals love the federal government so much while they detest states’ rights. It allows them to bend hundreds of millions of people to their will with one imperial edict. It’s also why liberal judges don’t believe in the Constitution like conservative justices do. Sticking to one set of rules means people have freedom to do what they want as long as they adhere to the basic rules our society was formed around. A “living constitution” means you can put the force of law behind the whims of liberal judges. Why is Barack Obama so insistent on listening in on your phone calls via NSA? Because if the government can’t watch you, it can’t tell you what to do…for your own good, of course.
