The Socialist Utopians

by PATRICK PETION (writer), Little Ferry NJ, October 08, 2010

I think it is a utopian to believe that we can eliminate suffering of all kinds. It is certainly an honorable goal to attempt to reduce hunger, provide health care, and diminish suffering.

Well it no news that the communism has collapsed, and communist Leaders are fleecing six figure honoraria fees, for speeches devoted to the ridiculous idea that we did not win the cold war,it's time we reidentify today's biggest threat to the american way of life.. it's definitely what Limbaugh called the socialist utopian. Despite what it sounds like, they are not a rock group from MTV or a new age religious cult from Southern Boston. They are a great many people who belong to this or that activist group. there is a common bond which spiritually unite these people, which is that attitude of cultural radicalism carried over from the 1960s radical. Theirs is an an-ti american credo, which abhors American political and governmental institutions and this nation's capitalistic economy. Their value system is at war with the western tradition and Abrahamic tradition upon which this country was founded and is centered in secular humanism and moral relativism.Theirs is the me generation, which seeks immediate gratifications, presumably because there is no spiritual tomorrow,their God is not spiritual or personal. Their God is every fiber of nature and is impersonal. He is just as part of the plant and the animal kingdom as he is a part of the human soul; thus, their pantheistic devotion to animals and the environment. As their emphasis is on this world, they cling to the belief that man is morally perceptible and that utopia on earth is achievable.If you look at popular culture and TV show or go to any major university you will find that the ideals of the 1960s generation are alive and well. they march under different labels now: political correctness, gender politics, peace studies . but they are all based on the same misguided premise held by the 60s radical:That utopia is possible. They think that a centralized governmental authority can bring us utopia. Those people are misguided, It is utopian to expect that every citizen will eat equally well on every day of the year. it also utopian to expect that every citizen will be provided health care in whatever amount and to whatever degree he wants every days of the year. It also utopian to believe that we can eliminate suffering of all kinds. It is certainly an honorable goal to attempt to reduce hunger, provide health care, and diminish suffering. But it is simply not realistic to expect that every citizen will have what he considers enough good food and fine health care. It's not event possible to guarantee everyone an adequate supply of those things, because the definition of adequate always changes with rising affluence. The poor in America today are incredibly rich compared with the much higher percentage of poor people at the turn of the previous century. think about it, today in America over half of those classified as poor own a dishwasher, most have a car, and nearly all have a television set. Most have enough to eat, but now we hear complaint about the quality of their. it is impossible to wipe out the poor because the standard for being poor keeps rising. Equalizing outcomes and ensuring everyone a mediocre minimum was what communism tried to accomplish. That's what the socialist tried to carry out. they tried to produce a Utopia and failed miserably. They failed because Utopia is impossible. Every human being has different abilities, talents, desires, and characteristics.No one can ever expect in no way those difference can be equalized, other than through the used of force. Example, law backed up by force if necessary, which redistribute wealth and penalize achievement.

The Utopian believe that its is unfair that some have so much and others have so little by comparison. But that only stirs up envy and bitterness among people and doesn't create any new wealth. The only way you can help the poor improve their lot in life is to empower them to do it themselves. self reliance and achievement develop pride and breed self reliance respect and motivation. It is a cliché, but it nonetheless must be said: when someone earn something by virtue of his own effort as opposed to its being given to him, he has infinitely greater appreciation for it. People should be aware of the extend to which our way of life is under siege by an increasing number of groups with candy-coated causes, but poisonous agendas.

Hurricane it is clear that you are a utopian living an a utopian world, but I womder if you really get the main point of that article. first no matter when and where the social / communist mouvement start, the point is your goal of helping every body isn't possible, you can't please everyone. the nation was funded on the believe everyone contribute to the development of the nation. you refer to Europe or the Scandinavian countries knowing that is completly faulse. what make those countries great is the amount of capital they have and also why other socialist country like cuba is not mention. you do know Europe is in truble because of their socialist influence. latest example of France and England has demonstrate that, you should be more intelectually honest.

Utopia is imposible every human being has different abilities, you should undestand that, and you should also know that social programm does not encourage people to be frre or to be productive citizen, it instead keep them dependent of the government. such system remind me slavery or ancient Europe were the people work but the king or plantation master get the profit and distribute it as he which. Sir fredom mean I push myself to the limit so I can achieve my goal and take care my familly while paying taxes to support the government. that is freedom and that is capitalist were everyone know freedom. it is up to me. by the way hand out and social wealthfare does not encourage personal responsability, and it also a proove that you democrat does not believe in people capacity to advance. I believe everyone can achieve and no one need hand out from any body or government institution. news to you social program has not help instead has hurt the poor make them become dependent of the hang out. Dean seriously do you want to spenet your life expecting the government to sent you a check at the end of the month and few food stamps how would you feel, that how million are living today. some born in the US are living that way, while others comming from central america or the caraibean after 10 year become college profesor, lawyer so please I know socialist Utopia does not work but capitalist does work all the time. the nation know it also, that why they will vote on nov 4 if you need any proove how to vote check NJ yes Christie is working as a Gop governor.

interesting that you bring the John birch society conspiracy theory. eventhought I;M not a supporter of his philosophy, we still have to admit he is right on certain point. don't you think that the Government was influence by the communist, if not can you explain where those Ideas of social programm come from. by the way did you know all of them was unconstitutional. FDR fought with the supreme court, Roosevelt announce a plan to introduce legislation that would reform the federal judiciariy. FDR came with the court packing in other to force the supreme court to accept his plan. segond. could you explain to me : from JFK to Clinton the Contry was again communist and I would also ad the socialist system, however soon after the end of the war it seem that we had found a new love with the communist idea. Believe it or not freedom and personal fufilment that what what those who left Europe was looking for, not a system which look just like the royaulty they just letf. Equality is an utopia there is no way that you can guarantee happiness, prosperity to everyone. Iwhich you could undestand, the only think which is possible is personal achievement. a government can't never guarantee you a better living or better food, or better health care. look the government does not produce, free people does. the only role of the government is to collect taxes, that how they make money. listen this is my oppinion, and I do spend a lot of time thinking about it. not only that I have proove, that demonstrate that you wrong and I'm right. why don't you ponder over it instead of trying to be right. I don't want to be right, but I want the truth to be right.

there is only one security, and when you've lost that security , you have lost everything ypu've got. and that is the security of confidence in yourself , to be , to create, to make any position you want to make for yourself. and when you lose that confidence, you have lost the only security you can have ... Self confidence is self determinism. One's belief in one's ability to determin his own course. as long as one has that, he's got the universe in his pocket. and when he hasn't got that, not all the pearl in the world not all the grain and corn in Iowa can give him security, because that the only security there is. remember those who desire to give up freedom in order to gain security will not have, nor do they deserve either one. reliant on someone else or an institution is as give up your freedom you become dependent. no matter how you try to picture it , that what it is.

uncertainty is the only certainty there is, and knowing how to live with insecurity is the only security. In conclusion: Security is mostly a superstition. it does not exist in nature, nor the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.

I certainly don't beleive that it is possible to have a perfect world, however there should certainly be a common goal in this country of "withholding unnecessary opportunities from a few, to increase the inequality of property, by an immoderate, and especially an unmerited, accumulation of riches." and "By the silent operation of laws, which, without violating the rights of property, reduce extreme wealth towards a state of mediocrity, and raise extreme indigence towards a state of comfort"

Don't you agree?

the only way you can achieve that is by limited one freedom, while empower the government. which option is inconsistent with the role of the government, the government is just the representation of the people. in the past it was a group of elite with a king as the head of state, and everyone else was following and serve the king. with the revolution of the 18 century that had ended, so today everyone is free to govern their own life. for structure and stability we have law and elect a head of state as the people employee, but the people is in charge. it is up to us to increase the government or to decrease it. so dear Mr agit8r how can a government withholding unnecessary opportunities and what is unnecessary opportunities

Interesting point, If you know your history you would have a better chance to undestand current affair. liberalism it really the inspiration of out funding fathers, but we should not confuse classic liberalis of the 18 century with the social liberal of the 20 century. it is two different philosophi:classic liberal is about the individual freedom, liberty, and pursuit of happiness, while social liberalist is about control, it is the religion of the state. it come from progressive which is a ideology simmilar to fascist and communist. at the beginning social liberal might look appealing, but at the end what they seek is to control your life. it is simmilar to the monarchi of early europe.
