Why are there so many people selling exactly this type of lie on social media?

Supposedly, the United States has turned from individuality to collectivism. Lie number one.

There is a tale, I don’t know if it’s true, that in Old Communist China, more traditionally, they used to put the children in smocks that tied in the back, because they wanted the children to learn how to put each other’s coats on. But more importantly, it would teach the children to depend on one another.

  1. Now, Rawls imagined something that sounded to me like the Q Continuum on Star Trek Next Generation. Well, if you’ve never seen Star Trek this will require some explanation. Envision a United Nations of Gods. I think there’s a Senate in Star Wars, but I saw that 20 years ago, and they’re not Gods. Okay, so picture this whole congress of Gods who are, of course, omnipotent and eternal. We’re drifting away from Rawls, but um, so these Gods are deciding what the world will be like. Basically, you get to weigh in on how you’d like it configured.
  2. Rawls argues that people would construct a more equal, just, and fair society if they practiced this exercise in empathy. The birth lottery.
  3. Since I lost the birth lottery, I understand what Rawls means. A society should endeavor to be as equal and just as possible. Freedom is not sole concern. In fact, freedom for one person may well impose on the liberty of another. For example, I may want to touch your body to stimulate my own in a gesture of sexual freedom. It would be a violation of your liberty if it was unwanted. American society is rampant with liberty violations, because it focuses solely on freedom!!!

We have gone from self-reliance to dependence.. Lie number two.

Because our society is aging, we are experiencing more people on Social Security and Social Security Disability. Both of these programs are entitlement programs Americans put their money into, because they are social insurance. They are not welfare.

We have gone from personal responsibility to no consequences. Lie number three.

Actually, colleges and universities have been teaching students exactly that. Instead of teaching junk history with white people did this great thing, and white people did that great thing. We learn a balanced history. Much like the white South Africans faced their history, we are also fully capable of going through a period of truth and reconciliation.

Chances are I have a migraine. My spirit guides are Voltaire & Bierce. Considering making SJW into a religion. Genealogist
