The Left Love Death, So Why The Masks?

Published

on

For years, many on the authoritarian left have advocated for partial birth abortion, assisted suicide, drone strikes, and endless wars. They have praised murderers like Fidel Castro and Che Guevara; and they fawn over genocidal maniacs like Mao and “Uncle Joe” Stalin. Increasingly, a majority on the American left now advocate for the same policies of these dictators that resulted in food and medicine shortages, outright famine, mass imprisonment and murder. The left love death.

Lawmakers in left wing controlled places like California, Colorado, Hawaii, Maine, New Jersey, Oregon, Vermont, Washington, and Washington DC – all have made physician assisted suicide legal in one form or another. The mere mention of even trying to have a discussion about protecting innocent unborn life in the womb and alternatives to child sacrifice often results in cat- like screeching from left coast to left coast. Human sacrifice and death have always been a defining trait of declining civilizations. Perhaps this is one reason the left is now pushing for students to celebrate the Aztec Empire and chant to their God’s. The left love death.

Leftist Bill Gates wants us to consider euthanasia to fund our schools. Several politicians on the left, and unfortunately some on the right, have long supported Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards to reduce emissions. The goal: to “save the environment.” The result? More death. Making vehicles lighter as demanded by our politicians increases gas mileage, but lighter vehicles don’t hold up too well in a crash. For the authoritarian left and those who embrace their ideas, the environment is more important than human life. The left love death.

With the authoritarian left’s well documented endorsement of people and policies that have led to so much death over history, it is ironic that they now seem concerned with preventing people from getting sick and dying from COVID-19. If they aren’t careful, they might get labeled “Pro-Life.” The authoritarian left is not concerned with preventing people from dying. To take that position would undo years of their commitment to Communist ideologies and “saving the earth” through population control, vehicle emissions standards, and every other narcissistic wacky idea they have imposed on everyone else.

The left do not care about you and your health. They are only pretending to be because masks and lockdowns have always been about the only thing that the authoritarian left really cares about: power. Power and control over you as a sovereign individual. The “pandemic” created the perfect vehicle for people like Andrew Cuomo, Gavin Newsom, Anthony Fauci, and other authoritarian leftists to lead a brigade of tattletales at all levels of the socio-economic spectrum. Certainly most people who work at Wal-Mart or any other place don’t get their kicks off of having to tell you to make sure your mask is covering your nose. In fact, most normal people don’t like conflict and we try to avoid it. But there are some who love the newfound power. Power that wasn’t earned by merit, by starting a business, getting a degree, or having a profession. That moral power rooted in creation, production, and service to others.

To be clear, there is nothing wrong with working at Wal-Mart, or in any other job one may choose. If you have been told by your superiors to enforce a silly mask or social distancing mandate, and you avoid it at all costs, and you do it with great reluctance and an understanding of the unfortunate silliness of it all, then you are a normal person. The people who enjoy bossing others around and enforcing these COVID regulations are among the ranks of every petty sociopath used by every kind of tyrant to abuse power all throughout the history of the world.

You know the type. They give you that dirty look if you aren’t wearing a mask, or you don’t have the “right kind” of mask, or you aren’t wearing it the “right way.” Some of them are quick to snap a directive at you. None of them would know what to do if you punched them in the nose, and they know it too! They know you won’t do that, but they kind of hope you do rebel because they comfortably hide behind the threat of law enforcement and the ever-growing police state. They wouldn’t dare say a word to you about a mask if they were alone with you in an empty back alley. Deep down, they know you know that too, and that makes them angry. This is the source of the dirty look they give you and the little power trip in the snap of their voice. The truth that you walk in strength and freedom and without fear and that they are incapable of such a sovereign and rugged individualist mindset. They need the nanny state to tell them what to do, what to think, and how to boss others around. They need group identity and group think. You don’t need any of that and it pisses them off.

Real men and women create their own power, but we need freedom to do it. We need to be free to go out into the wilderness and build a house. We need to be free to sell things, to create things, to exercise the right of assembly with others. We need the freedom to interact in the most efficient and convenient ways possible. This is how things get built. This is at the core of a flourishing and free civilization. The authoritarian left and the losers who vote for them know this. Therefore, they lock us down. They don’t have the confidence or the work ethic to get out there and create and build, or they already made it to the top and now they want to pull the ladder up so no one else gets up there. They say it is to keep us healthy and alive; but their history tells a different story; the Lockdown Authoritarian Left Love Power and The Left Love Death.

Achievements Through the Ages

Marshaling resources, establishing order, and carefully scheduling activities and events are vital in any era

Published

on

Besides being regarded as the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, what do these sites have in common: the Great Pyramid at Giza, Egypt; the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, in what is now Iraq; the Statue of Zeus at Olympia, Greece; the Temple of Artemis at Ephesus, Turkey; the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus, in what is now Bodrum, Turkey; the Colossus of Rhodes in Greece; and the Lighthouse at Alexandria, Egypt?

Added to the above, what do the following sites, often referred to as the New Seven Wonders of the World, have in common? The Great Wall of China; Petra, an archaeological city in southern Jordan; the Colosseum in Rome, Italy; Chichen Itza in the Yucatán of Mexico; Machu Picchu in the Cuzco region of Peru; the Taj Mahal in Agra, Uttar Pradesh, India; and the Christ the Redeemer statue overlooking Rio de Janeiro, Brazil?

Last, what do these have in common: the Acropolis in Athens, Greece; the Suez Canal; the Panama Canal; the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul, Turkey; Teotihuacan in the Basin of Mexico; the Empire State Building in New York City; the Eiffel Tower in Paris; the Porcelain Tower of Nanjing, China; El Mirador in Guatemala; the Tower of London; and many other notable places around the world?

Long Before Today’s Tools of Technology

The answer to all of the above, in a nutshell, is that they are major architectural, landscaping, or construction feats that were conceived, built, and perfected without the aid of a computer, software, or any of the technological tools that are commonly associated with project management.

The same can be said of the Great Canadian Railway, the Patagonia Highway in South America, the Hoover Dam in Arizona, the Itaipu Dam bordering Brazil and Paraguay, the U.S. Interstate Highway System, the Great Siege Tunnels of Gibraltar, the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, the Trans-Siberian Highway, the Aswan Dam in Egypt, the first passenger ocean liners, pre-World War II aircraft, early steel mills, etc.

Regarding the “Wonders” named above, to say it another way, long before anyone knew about electricity, let alone cyberspace or management software and spreadsheets, ambitious civilizations around the globe, pioneering builders, devised and constructed some of the most enduring, iconic sites and destinations in the world.

These massive projects involved conception (that is, the genesis of the idea), designing, planning, and material and labor considerations, all of which are part of today’s computer-aided world that obviously none of the builders and designers of these projects had at their disposal. As such, not all projects proceeded with the efficiency that today’s projects can muster. There were costly delays, high accident and mortality rates, and sometimes gargantuan setbacks. Despite it all, the march of civilization and the proliferation of monumental feats continued unabated.

Your Bottom Line

Whether it’s client services, team building, or what-have-you, what are their underlying concepts, and what makes their tenets viable now and for the future? You want to always seek both the short- and the long-term utility of a management methodology, a tool, a system, or even a set of beliefs.

With effective management, when you sweep away the contemporary hubbub, an underlying structure prevails. The need to marshal adequate resources, to establish order, and to carefully schedule activities and events, all remain vital in any era. Technological tools provide the contemporary template and operating systems by which we do proceed, while the underlying fundamentals of effective management are relatively constant.

When you stay open-minded to the available new terminology and tools, you’ll tend to learn new things and gain perspectives that you might not otherwise encounter. So, understand new terminology and tools, but do not be ensnared by them as if they are so vital that you can’t successfully manage a project without them.

Education

Angry Parents Aren’t Terrorists—They’re Just Terrors to Public School Boards

Published

Dear school boards: When you poke mama and papa bear, don’t be surprised when they growl and bare their teeth. And writing a letter to the president asking him to sic the FBI on parents rather than treating them as partners in education seems more political than needful.

To understand the gulf between parents and educators, just watch a school board meeting on youtube (if you still can). You’ll see concerned parents voicing their concerns at microphones. They look like defendants standing before judges in a tribunal. What happened to PTAs?

In school board meetings across the nation, parents are treated as opponents rather than partners. They’re frustrated and angry with imperious school boards who seem to insist that they know what’s best for their children.

At times their anger causes them to raise their voices in passionate speeches. They love their children and seek to protect them from what they view as indoctrination, not education. Parental love drives their passion and triggers their protective instincts. This doesn’t make them domestic terrorists.

If school board members and teachers feel threatened by genuine threats in public meetings or on social media, they should be investigated—by local authorities, not by the federal government.

Yet last week the National School Boards Association (NSBA) wrote a letter to President Biden asking him to direct the Justice Department to investigate angry parents for hate crimes and domestic terrorism. Domestic terrorism.

Why are parents so angry? Three issues come to mind: mask mandates, sex education that includes transgenderism, and Critical Race Theory.

Mask mandates

Masks can and do help prevent the transmission of the coronavirus. But they’re not necessarily a good option for children simply because, by and large, the virus is not deadly to kids.

In fact, 98-99 percent of children who get COVID fully recover. With this in mind, by doing a simple risk assessment of masking schoolchildren versus not masking them, we’d conclude that it’s better to let them learn without masks.

Additionally, we simply don’t know the longterm adverse effects forced masking has on learning. Most kids are visual learners and take cues from facial expressions. Their socialization may also suffer as a result.

Clearly, because educators are more at risk of death from COVID-19, they should continue masking. Thoughtful parents know their children who do not have preexisting conditions are generally safe to attend school without masks.

Why do school boards and teachers unions continue to push unnecessary and likely harmful mask mandates on children? For whom are they most concerned with protecting? If they believe in masking, they should mask up and suck it up. If they’re still afraid, perhaps they’re not cut out to be educators.

Sex re-education

Teaching children about the birds and the bees is a parent’s job, not a teacher’s. Sex ed is a family issue, not the state’s. Can’t it wait until just before puberty, rather than being taught to kids K-5?

Many traditional parents share this opinion. So is the self-evident truth that binary genders exist in human biology—and in reality. Parents who embrace this truth and passionately speak up about it are now at risk of being accused of hate speech.

We are born male or female. No amount of surgery or hormone treatment changes this reality. Parents know this and also know that confusing kids with fantasy genders and damaging gender reassignment harms them.

Public school educators have more than enough on their plates with teaching reading, writing and arithmetic. They should leave sex education to parents and resist pressure to push gender nonsense on impressionable children.

Parents are also concerned with the prospect of hormonally-altered boys competing against their girls in sports. This obviously gives males unfair physically advantages and presents a danger to the health of welfare of overmatched females.

The Journal of Medical Ethics affirmed this reality in a recent study in which the researchers concluded that “the advantage to transwomen afforded by the IOC guidelines is an intolerable unfairness.”

Bad theory

What is Critical Race Theory?

Critical Race Theory (CRT), as defined in a video by the Heritage Foundation, is a philosophy founded on Marxist analysis that claims America is “systemically racist.”

CRT proponents, active in colleges and universities for years, now seek to impact public policy in public schools. As a result, CRT is beginning to gain a foothold in K-12. This makes parents angry.

Most parents and some educators and school board members reject CRT’s racial discrimination for equity in favor of equality and opportunity for all— regardless of skin color.

The vast majority of thoughtful and caring parents believe that CRT teaches children to feel guilty for their “whiteness” while accepting the lie that America’s systems are inherently racist.

The 1964 Civil Rights Act dealt a mortal blow to systemic racism in America. Critical Race Theory ignores this landmark legislation and the fact that racism resides in people, not systems.

Obviously, there a differing definitions of systemic racism held by those on both sides of the issue. Just as there are differing definitions of “hate speech.” Perhaps it would be helpful to rely on definitions that are based in logic and common sense rather than emotion and agenda.

In the minds of many parents, Critical Race Theory is nothing more than partisan propaganda. CRT is harmful because it produces unmerited guilt, divides us and denies the attainability of the American Dream for people of color.

This is not borne out by our nation’s history. Rather, it’s debunked by generations of immigrants and people of color who came to America legally and made better and more prosperous lives for themselves and their families.

Terrorists or terrors?

To justify their appeal to the president for federal law enforcement support, the National School Boards Association is misapplying words and phrases to vilify angry and frustrated parents. Why? They’re either seeking to clear obstacles to their agenda and/or they mistake parental passion for peril to themselves.

Have some angry parents (or those who side with them) gone too far with social media attacks and threats? Probably. Does any of this have to do with genuine hate speech or domestic terrorism? Unlikely.

What’s more likely is that words like hate and terror are being misused to trigger more government interference in the lives of parents and their children.

Branding angry parents domestic terrorists is absurd hyperbole at best and political weaponization at worst. Parents who are merely resisting ideological intrusion into their public schools—and their children’s lives—deserve better.

What we need is an overhaul of a failing public school system and vouchers for charter schools and alternative educational systems like home schooling.

Why should we continue funding increasingly political public schools? Why should we believe school boards who claim parents are engaging in hate speech, threats of violence, and terrorism when most seek merely to protect their children by exercising their freedom of speech with passion and conviction?
