The key to understanding the left: Overpopulation and Resource Scarcity

It’s Malthusianism. Ehrlichism. Suzuki-ism. Scarcity-ism. The belief that there are too many people on earth, and that there are a finite amount of resources on earth. Drill down into the thinking of most left-wing ideas and liberal behavior, and you’ll find this belief, pushed on the public in various forms throughout the culture and academia, is the foundation.

It’s the key to understanding why otherwise normal, well-educated, intelligent people you know, who personally live more-or-less right-of-center lives, accept Big Government as the answer: because population must be reduced, and resources must be rationed, and the only way to do that is with force from above, enforced by the barrel of a gun. It’s why they accept intrusions into the lives of others and themselves. It’s why they accept taxation as a social and punitive tool. It’s why they accept any fraud labeled “green”. It’s why they obsess over the “income gap”. It’s why they feel guilty over their material success. It’s why they feel resentment over those who gain even greater material success. It’s why they accept wealth-redistribution schemes which they fully understand leads to disincentive to work. It’s why they accept government health care death panels. It’s why they accept and defend human baby abortion. It’s why their heroes idolize Castro and Chavez, defend Saddam, clink champagne glasses with Kim Jung-Il, refuse to bomb Hitler’s gas chambers and human incinerators, and idolize the United Nations as it stands by and watches slaughters in Africa.

If conservatives want to have an impact in the fight for the political culture, this is ground zero: the fight against these two twisted notions (overpopulation and resource scarcity) that warp minds and hand all power to the left. Remove this ring the left uses to pull around the people by their noses, and the war can be won. Remove the foundation, and the edifice crumbles to the ground.

So from now on, remember the mantra at all times: there are not too many people on the earth, there are probably too few. There are not too few resources on the earth; mathematically, our resources approach infinity.

Of Menscheviks and Nimrods: Why the Left cannot co-exist with the Jews

A few months ago, I became Facebook friends with someone I call a Menschevik – a play on the old Soviet factional name “Menshevik” – which I define as a humanly decent person (a mensch), but a brainwashed leftist, who is animated by a bleeding heart on issues of race, gender, ethnicity, etc. rather than by the power and envy that animates the more hard-edged class-and-economy warriors. My Menschevik friend recently posted an Occupy Wall Street propaganda graphic that encourages hatred against Israel. The graphic ignores context, history, and decency, preying on ignorance and the goodwill of the Menschevik bleeding heart to make it appear that Israel is guilty of genocide.

Now, why would a good-hearted person, obsessed with issues of oppression and minority rights, fall for the demonization of history’s ultimate minority people, and history’s most oppressed religion? I guess it’s no surprise, given the trajectory of the world of academia and media these past 20 years. But it’s starting to clarify in my mind why even the most good-hearted and intelligent leftists are blinded to their intolerance of Judaism and a Jewish state.

A few years ago, I read Dennis Prager’s “Why the Jews?”, a book that defines what he proposed as (if I remember correctly), the six main reasons for Jew-hatred in the world. The most significant breakthrough he made in this book was identifying what is, to me, the ultimate reason why Jews have always been singled out for destruction by earthly despots and dictators – the nature of the Jewish religion itself. Jews are commanded to be a free people with individual dignity, rights, and responsibilities, committed to values and principles, not politics and tribalism. Dictators and despots, however, require unflinching loyalty and service to vanity and power. The Jewish religion mocks this idea, and encourages speaking truth to power and choosing death over submission.

Now, how does this apply to our big-hearted Menschevik? It goes to the nature of the left. The left at every level is anathema to true Jewish philosophy. For the true left-right spectrum is the spectrum between minimal earthly authority over the individual (far-right), to complete submission of individuals to earthly authority (far-left). The bone-crushing class-warfare leftists require submission to earthly authority in order to punish the rich and redistribute their wealth, while the Menschevik left requires submission in order to eliminate sexism, racism, xenophobia, homophobia, religion, anger, hatred, etc, and to unify under John Lennon’s imaginary “Imagine” world of no religion, countries, or conflicts. Whether the motives are harsh, or come from misguided bleeding-heartedness, the fact is, all leftists require a conformity, unity, and submissiveness that Jews are commanded, by God, to never grant. So the only possible solutions to the left’s Jewish problem is: change the Jews, ban Judaism, or kill the Jews. We find a “change the Jews” movement alive and well today, as the left tries to co-opt the term “Tikkun Olam” to justify all measures of government intervention in private lives, and as it tries to eliminate our historical and moral claim to a homeland; we find “ban Judaism” in some form in every communist and Islamist government; and we find “kill the Jews” in the extreme-left fascist states like Nazi Germany and the Roman Empire.

Is there a solution? In short: no. As long as there has been humankind, there has been a left-wing, working to unify mankind by subsuming individual rights into the collective, in order to create heaven on earth and thus move God to a secondary or tertiary role on earth. The first leftist demagogue was Nimrod, the ancient king who rallied humanity to come together, “speak as one”, and build the Tower of Babel to claim equality with God. We all know how that turned out. And yet, the left never seems to learn. Every other Babel – from Hitler’s thousand-year Reich, to Marx’s history-ending communist revolution, to Rome’s Mare Nostrum, to Islam’s worldwide caliphate, to today’s European Union – has come crashing down to destruction.

And yet, the Jewish people and the Jewish religion live on. As long as the Jewish idea survives, the plans of the Nimrods will be thwarted. They know that, and we know that. Sadly, they will probably never stop trying to eliminate Judaism. Happily, the Jews, and those with a true Judeo-Christian mindset, will never submit. And this, my friends, is the overarching theme of the entire history of mankind.
