Reader Reminds us : absolute power corrupts absolutely

In fascism, karl marx, liberalism, liberals, power corrupts, socialism on March 2, 2009 at 6:21 pm

Liberals, like 9:10, follow an ideology that based on the accumulation of power to a centralized authority that can then dispense the wealth of a nation. This follows an emotional need for power and control.

On the contrary, a conservative ideology is based on the diffusion of power down to each and every individual. This is not emotional, but based on the historically correct belief that absolute power corrupts absolutely.

One of these processes leads to evil the other to freedom.

9:10, can you tell which is which? If you can’t, then you have made my point for me. The emotional reaction of a nation led a majority to vote for Obama. He is a real threat to each and every individual’s authority over themselves: their goals, dreams, efforts, etc. This, of course, will cause a great backlash against him and his followers. It is merely inevitable.

While both liberals and conservatives work with the tools of government, they are as different as the arsonist and the fire brigade, both of which work with fire.

Americans, those who still value their freedoms, must do everything in their power to undermine Obama’s accumulation of power. Everything in their power.

I certainly will.

  1. I think I’m married to this poster.

  2. No. I’m married to this poster.

  3. Let me get this straight, the liberals are the arsonist and the conservatives are the fire brigade. So what are the independents?

  4. The independents are the spectators, until their houses catch fire, then they join the conservatives.

  5. 7:10 PM
    The independents are the bucket into which either fire or water may be placed. They don’t help, but they tend not to hurt either.

  6. This country is going to be like France, without the wine and stinky cheese.

  7. Liberals and independents are really conservatives who have yet to pay 60 % of their income to the state local and federal governments…only to be told by some health care troika that a life saving cancer medicine is not covered under our newly nationalized,egalitarian, health care system – too costly.

    The driving force coming out of Washington these days sounds like
    Liberte’ Egalite’ Fraternite’ and Pelosie’

    God help us. Our ignorance of history, even recent history, jeapordizes our ability to save ourselves.

  8. This manifesto was funny. The only place that something like that could find a home is on the internet. I’ll bet that he/she has many more like this stored on the PC at home. A word processor and internet connection can make some people feel quite powerful.

  9. It must be great to be so certain of the correctness of your beliefs. To be so totally sure of your own righteous correctness…to have no doubts at all about your superior intellect and powers of reasoning. It must be great to be you, and to have no room for doubt or possibility of error.

    No it’s not great but it is a burden. We can’t all be “iffy” and feel vainglorius about it. Perhaps you’ve heard the Churchillian comment that “if you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything.” I guess that would be you. So, tell me, how does that make you feel? Kinda weak in the knees, perhaps — uncertain about all things, even life itself. Not even existentialists are iffy. Nor athiests, nor nudists…I could go on.

  11. 10:16 –
    Stop talking about 10:07 that way.

  12. Perhaps you’ve heard the Churchillian comment that “if you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything.”

    I believe you’re thinking of the quote attributed to GK Chesteron — “When people stop believing in God, they don’t believe in nothing — they believe in anything.”

    …which is actually from Emile Cammaert’s book The Laughing Prophets — http://chesterton.org/qmeister2/any-everything.htm

  13. Liberals hate the truth so they launch personal attacks against their opponents because they can never win an argument based on the merits.

    Obama is a socialist, through and through. The great swath in the middle, the independents, are now only waking up to the fact.

    The One is a blessing in disguise. He and his fellow travelers in the Democrat Party will soon over reach causing them to loose the Senate or the House or both again.

    Americans aren’t that stupid that they want to be like the French or Italians.

    NO. I am referring to Winston Churchill. The quote is pretty exact.

    Regards.

  16. 3:52 – I’ve googled the quote and can’t find a connection to Churchill. Some people cite Malcom X as the source. Can you tell me where Sir Winston said it?

    Not a manifesto. Just an observation. Nothing canned. Just a spontaneous expression. Not foolish enough to feel powerful by scribbling a few lines here. I’ll leave that for others. Sorry. But Like 10:16 I’m just not falling for it. Would be more hopeful if bigger government meant greater
    opportunity for wealth generation. It does not. It just adds ballast to the recovery. Big government cannot produce wealth. It can only redistribute and consume it.

  19. The quote is noted in William Manchester’s biography of Sir Winston.

  20. 1007 spoken like a true coward
