The way I see it (Or “and another thing about liberals and their views”).
Liberals don’t like people being different from one another. They want everyone to be the same and have the same things. They want to rob the rich and with “Wealth Redistribution” to give to the poor so everyone will then be equally poor. Most believe it is only natural for wealthy liberals to take advantage of the system to keep and even to generate more wealth for themselves.
Liberals view society as being made up of dichotomies; rich vs poor, black vs white, young vs old, men vs women, conservatives vs liberals. Each group is in direct competition with the other on all levels of the socio economic scales which creates class envy, division and strife.
Society is responsible for each individual. Government has an obligation to the poor and is morally justified in taking from the rich to provide food, shelter, clothing and healthcare for the poor (even if the poor can work yet chose not to).
Bigger government is necessary to regulate businesses and individual lives to achieve fairness and a just society. Less individual freedom is necessary to achieve equality and security for the good of society. Competition between businesses is unfair and all should provide the same things for the same prices. Wealth is bad because it creates unfair advantages for those who have it and promotes class warfare. Only wealthy liberals know the correct way to use their wealth and therefore deserve to keep it.
The government is responsible for leveling the work playing field. Everyone deserves equal pay for unequal amounts of work, free education from cradle to grave and businesses filling quotas of select people groups within their companies rather than filling positions based upon performance.
Healthcare from cradle to grave is a right. The government should take over all healthcare systems and distribute access equally to everyone. This will result in the limitation of consumer’s choices and the amount of access everyone has due to problems of resource management and availability but, this is acceptable as everyone will get the same treatment eventually.
Government should control all forms of wealth creation because business is evil and the owners are out to exploit their employees. The environment and consumers suffer from the effects of the demands for higher profits from business owners. Government regulation of employee benefits, consumer rights and environment issues is the solution.
Government should legislate tolerance for all lifestyles and religious belief systems which are viewed as tolerant. Those viewed as intolerant need to be regulated. Absolute standards of right and wrong need to be abolished and replaced with moral relativism.
Freedom of speech needs to be limited to inoffensive comments made both verbally and in writing. Comments that offend should be viewed as “Hate Speech” and the perpetrators punished and re-educated.
Government is responsible for creating peace with other nations. Peace should not be brought about by threat of force or an arms buildup. It should be achieved through appeasement, cooperation and mutual understanding. The military should be downsized, defunded and used as border patrol guards or government regulation enforcers.
Liberals view America as more flawed than other nations. They believe we are all homophobic, racist, sexist, ageist and imperialistic as we desire to force our views of how life should be lived upon people around the world. They do not see America as better than any other nation in either our resources, founding documents (the constitution) or the abilities of our citizens to meet any and all challenges to our sovereignty.
Liberals believe that we have no right to pass judgment upon any other nation in regards to human right violations, liberty, freedom from oppression or the right to life. Secularism and freedom from religion are rights our government should uphold.
Liberalism (or as they prefer to call themselves, “Progressivism”) strongly desires to pull America down the road to a socialist welfare state. Government should redistribute wealth through a complex web of state sponsored entitlements. Government should control every aspect of life for all the people who live in America because individuals are incapable of solving their own problems without help from the government.
Here is a story of two poor men.
There once was a poor man with two knives. Another poor man who had no knife stole one from the man who has two. Now each has one knife. Liberals see this as “Social justice” as each man is now equally poor and has only one knife. They fail to understand or even regard the value the man who had two knives placed upon each. One knife was his father’s and he inherited it when his father died. The other was a birthday present from his son who died in Iraq. Both have significant value to the man who had one taken from him.
Do you believe social justice has been served?
