The View From 1776

Liberals Pursue International Egalitarianism

Charles Krauthammer analyzes deliberate actions of liberal-progressives to torpedo the United States below the water line, as noted in recent posting on this website.

Quote:

Facing the choice of whether to maintain our dominance or to gradually, deliberately, willingly, and indeed relievedly give it up, we are currently on a course towards the latter. The current liberal ascendancy in the United States—controlling the executive and both houses of Congress, dominating the media and elite culture—has set us on a course for decline. And this is true for both foreign and domestic policies. Indeed, they work synergistically to ensure that outcome.

  1. Krauthammer admits,

    "Heavy are the burdens of the hegemon."

    If the Bush years are examples of the apex of American Hegemony, then we should all breathe a sigh of relief that with any luck, those bad times are behind us.

    Krauthammer and Brewton imply that it is desirable to expend the nation's blood and treasure into bankruptcy to remain the policeman of the world, while at home our infrastructure crumbles, our schools decline, and we remain hooked on an oil-based economy.

    The national interest is not necessarily served by invading every country whose government we find in error.

    Krauthammer is correct that the fall of Rome should be a warning to us. He should remember that it came about in no small part due to the expense of maintaining armies for world wide conquest.

  2. The Liberal 'feelings' trust in luck. Thus, the Roman rule of the world was a nationalistic ego-trip. They were over 90% slave and non-citizen at home throughout their entire history, and monetarily (and ethically) made the right choice.

    History has placed Mr. Jefferson's Nation at the high point of world history in defense of the superior definition of 'human' and his gold-fish-to-water analogy of man the Choicemaker to essential Freedom. The U.S. has never taken alien lands to rule but to make possible the most accurate environment for its own Choicemakers, and less abuse to our own.

    Socialism works well for bees and ants. It is a chaotic tragedy for the human being; earth's Choicemaker. ("Every country...?")

    Most Americans in the past have chosen to accept the call of the Creator who "made all men in His own image." They are worthy.(Except the free-riders.)
