The View From 1776
Liberals Have to Believe in Magic
Liberal-socialism is, from the first step out of the box, founded upon mythology, and its theories are ivory-tower abstractions so unconnected with reality that they fall within the realm of magic. John Kerry, Ted Kennedy, and their fellow socialists behave like wanna-be actors auditioning for wizard roles in the next Harry Potter movie.
- The paradox of the liberal/socialist following of abstract ideas is that the further a country strays down this line of government, the more orthodox and less radical they appear as their ideas run out of steam when they don't work, giving the increasing impression that traditionalists are the ones with the interesting and radical ideas.

- Socialism, rooted and maintained in Humanism,is forever doomed to lack of traction on Reality. Again, the missing element in any human solution is an accurate definition of the human creature. Force-fed "ideas" has no more traction on Reality than bras on donkeys or a patty-cake national anthem. Teddy Kennnedy is a prime example of a socialistic clod without virtue posing as a pipe-dream animator at Disney. Seek Reality!
The way we define 'human' determines our view
of self, others, relationships, institutions, life, and
future. Important? Only the Creator who made us
in His own image is qualified to define us accurately.
Many problems in human experience are the result of
false and inaccurate definitions of humankind premised
in man-made religions and humanistic philosophies.
Human knowledge is a fraction of the whole universe.
The balance is a vast void of human ignorance. Human
reason cannot fully function in such a void; thus, the
intellect can rise no higher than the criteria by which it
perceives and measures values.
Humanism makes man his own standard of measure.
However, as with all measuring systems, a standard
must be greater than the value measured. Based on
preponderant ignorance and an egocentric carnal
nature, humanism demotes reason to the simpleton
task of excuse-making in behalf of the rule of appe-
tites, desires, feelings, emotions, and glands.
Because man, hobbled in an ego-centric predicament,
cannot invent criteria greater than himself, the humanist
lacks a predictive capability. Without instinct or trans-
cendent criteria, humanism cannot evaluate options with
foresight and vision for progression and survival. Lack-
ing foresight, man is blind to potential consequence and
is unwittingly committed to mediocrity, collectivism,
averages, and regression - and worse. Humanism is an
The void of human ignorance can easily be filled with
a functional faith while not-so-patiently awaiting the
foot-dragging growth of human knowledge and behav-
ior. Faith, initiated by the Creator and revealed and
validated in His Word, the Bible, brings a transcend-
ent standard to man the choice-maker. Other philo-
sophies and religions are man-made, humanism, and
thereby lack what only the Bible has:
1.Transcendent Criteria and
2.Fulfilled Prophetic Validation.
The vision of faith in God and His Word is survival
equipment for today and the future.
Human is earth's Choicemaker. Psalm 25:12 He is by
nature and nature's God a creature of Choice - and of
Criteria. Psalm 119:30,173 His unique and definitive
characteristic is, and of Right ought to be, the natural
foundation of his environments, institutions, and re-
spectful relations to his fellow-man. Thus, he is orien-
ted to a Freedom whose roots are in the Order of the
universe. The Human Solution. selah
