There are several articles in the news and in the blogosphere that are showing quite clearly just how much America has degenerated as a society.
Ryan McMaken posts on the LewRockwell blog that conservatives cheer the abduction and theft of children of so-called “illegal immigrant” parents, as the government terrorizes these innocent families. Here is that news story.
But I thought that conservatives were “pro-family,” and didn’t like the idea of the government kidnapping children and breaking up families (for example, in the name of “Child Protective Services,” etc.).
As Jacob Hornberger has pointed out, several times in fact, one of the big reasons we have an immigration problem is that immigration into the U.S. is controlled by the federal government. Perhaps if conservatives understood that this is an example of socialist central planning, they might not support such controls, and instead support property rights, economic freedom and the rule of law.
I have already pointed out that this issue is another example of the true communist nature of today’s conservatives. But they are by and large collectivists and exclusionists. As Hans-Hermann Hoppe observed, the right of exclusion is a private property right, not a collective, communitarian right. The conservatives believe in collective, communistic ownership of an entire territory and everything within, and they believe that the majority of a community may claim ownership and control over private property and businesses and they have the right to force exclusion to outsiders, against the will of “private” property and business owners. But this is yet another example of the moral, social and economic degeneracy of America.
Paul Joseph Watson writes on Infowars that the arrogant buffoons of the U.S. government are implicitly warning Iran that if Iran retaliates against an Israeli strike against them, the U.S. military will then get involved and do to Iran what they did to Iraq. Usually, “conservatives” cheer someone’s right of self-defense. When you are attacked by an aggressor, you have a right to use force to protect and defend yourself. Unfortunately, because America has degenerated so much, not just morally and culturally, but intellectually as well, the people who have been cheering on the U.S. government’s aggressions abroad over the past 20 years have been engaging in primitive intellectual rationalization to justify those aggressions against others. In their 21st Century primitive narcissism, the war supporters cannot understand the perspective of the targets of their government’s aggression, and instead have devalued those murdered foreign civilians, and perceive the victims’ retaliations as acts of “terrorism.” The Amerikan barbarians will treat their Iranian victims the same way. The U.S. and British Empires have a history with Iran.
To reinforce the American mindset of rationalization and primitivism, many people have been believing the U.S. government’s propaganda, from Iraq to Afghanistan to Iran. Well, if you really believe that Iran wants to “wipe Israel off the map” knowing full well that if they did anything it is THEY who would get the wiping off, then I have a bridge to sell you. But the sheeple believe the government’s propaganda that these Muslim people are “suicidal.” Some of them are, but so are some Americans, particularly in the military.
Another propagandistic message is that the Iranians are the “aggressors,” merely for possessing weapons for self-defense. Well, what would you do if you were completely surrounded by nukes, by many U.S. military bases and knowing that Israel (in its grossly pathological paranoid state) has hundreds of nukes? Many people actually think that in 1991 Iraq started the Persian Gulf War against the U.S., and that Iraq started the 2003 war against the U.S. That is thanks to government propagandists and their subservient media stenographers, and, of course, government-controlled schools.
But getting back to this arrogant message of “we attack you and you not fight back.” Bizarrely, it is the conservatives who say they believe in the right of people to self-defense. In our backwards, degenerated society now, the aggressors who attack people can sue if they get hurt when their victims retaliate, and the homeowner gets arrested and charged with assault or murder if the burglar, home invader or rapist gets hurt or killed.
The American Dream Blog has this post on how America is going insane. (How could we believe otherwise?) The writer points out that the country as a whole has been “dumbed down.” Many people think that is because of government control over education. The U.S. had a solid #1 ranking worldwide in education, but that started to decline since the federal Department of Education began thirty years ago. (Thanks, Jimma.) All Ronald Reagan had to do was to get rid of that unconstitutional department as promised, but he didn’t do it. What a wimp. Education has declined ever since.
The problem really began during the mid-19th century when the Progressive and anti-Catholic statists began to legislate intrusions into the private educational matters of private families. They “socialized” the concept of learning and that primarily has been what has crushed the critical thinking abilities and analytical skills of Americans. The education fascists love the centralization of everything and oppose localization, local control. They especially do not like the idea of a private family home-schooling the kids, and they have turned the government schools into prisons. No wonder Amerikans have been supporting sleazebag liars such as Willard Romney and Newt Gingrich. Guided mostly by emotion and not rational thought, so many gullible people believe that Romney is a “capitalist” and that he believes in “free markets,” regardless how much he raised taxes and fees in Massachusetts and knowing that he still supports his government-controlled health program, RomneyCareless. And many people are still emotionally fixated on this idea of American Exceptionalism which Romney uses quite a lot to manipulate the voters’ emotions.
The American Dream Blog writer also points out that the “terrorist watch list” has over a million names on it. Only in Amerika. And the writer points out that many people can get their names permanently on that list (including from anonymous tips). In my opinion, only dumb people support all this “If You See Something, Say Something,” and reporting of your neighbors who act “suspiciously.” To some people, expressing disagreement with ObamaCareless, or expressing support for Ron Paul is “suspicious.” I wouldn’t be surprised now if there are many people who understand where this nonsense leads who are scared to death of their neighbors and just don’t talk to people anymore out of fear that a false “tip” could happen to them.
And because of how barbaric and Nazi-like our local police have become, many people who are just going about their lives minding their own business are terrified of the police. What happened to people in America that has caused such small-sized tyrants and terrorists on our local police forces, and in the TSA for that matter? Why do so many of them act like Nazis? Why do they act like they are angry at you for just standing there, or, if you ask them why they are asking a personal question that is none of their business, why do they then accuse you of being “disorderly” or “insubordinate,” or of being a criminal? (Can the police station psychiatrist prescribe them Xanax?)
Yes, America has degenerated into Amerika. Many people now are afraid of their government. Many people fear the police. The people amongst the masses are viewed by many in government and the police as criminals, when in fact it is these government agents who have been committing the real crimes against the people. From illicit laws that persecute innocent people for engaging in activities that harm no one, and the police enforcing those illicit laws with a vengeance, to the police, TSA, DHS and military committing acts of violence against their fellow Americans and against foreigners, as well as against immigrants who thought they were coming to America for freedom and opportunity.
Amerika, the society of degenerates, with governments instituted for some people who get off on committing acts of aggression against others, and get away with it.
