QOTD:I WOULD SAY THAT WHAT THEY HAVE IN COMMON IS NOT JUST THEIR ELITISM, BUT THEIR ADHERENCE TO POSTMODERNIST AMORALITY AND LIBERTINAGE.
"Nemesis is always hot on the trail of hubris, across time and space, and the goddess has been particularly busy in destroying the carefully crafted images of Bono, John Edwards, Timothy Geithner, Al Gore, Eliot Spitzer, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, Anthony Weiner, and a host of others.
What do their tax hypocrisies, sexual indulgences, and aristocratic socialist lifestyles all have in common?
Collectively, they represent a self-appointed or elected global elite that oversees, lectures about — in sanctimonious fashion — the ethical responsibilities of the redistributive state." --Victor Davis Hanson
POSTMODERN LEFTISTS AREN'T LIBERTARIANS; THEY ARE LIBERTINES.
THE DIFFERENCE IS SIMPLE:
- LIBERTARIANS BELIEVE IN NATURAL LAW - AND THAT SOME THINGS THAT HUMANS ARE CAPABLE OF ARE BAD, WRONG, OR EVIL.
- LIBERTINES BELIEVE THAT MORALITY IS SUBJECTIVE, CULTURALLY RELATIVE - OR A FAIRYTALE.
NATURAL LAW IS AT THE VERY HEART AND SOUL OF OUR AMERICAN CIVILIZATION.
THOSE WHO OPPOSE IT ARE FUNDAMENTALLY UN-AMERICAN.
WE SHOULDN'T EVER LET THEM HIDE BENEATH AND SOIL THE SACRED BANNER OF LIBERTY.
