RUNAWAY SOCIAL SYMPATHY

Every once in a while I switch the TV channel from Fox to CNBC to see what the liberals are saying.  After listening awhile I get a deep sense of hopelessness and foreboding for our country.  The most important thing for the left is giving money to people.  They are happy to see the growth of food stamps, disability payments, housing subsidies, free healthcare and all the other welfare benefits.  They utterly fail to see the damage it is doing to the recipients.  Whole cities that once flourished have deteriorated into rotting eyesores populated with shambling hulks of chemically dependent drones.  These people are no longer employable.  They have become incompetent and helpless and the liberals can’t see that it’s their doing.

LACKING WISDOM

In virtually every undertaking and policy initiative emanating from progressives and leftists, one crucial ingredient is always missing. It’s called wisdom. Liberals are utterly bereft of wisdom. They lack insight into human nature and the behavioral development of mankind. Human beings progress to the extent of the difficulties they meet and overcome throughout life. An individual grows through meeting adversity and defeating it. Our lives are filled with roadblocks and obstacles that must be overcome. The most successful people can generally point to agonizing setbacks along the way that forced them to find the will to persist and find solutions.

Apparently this fact has never dawned on liberals. They insist on giving people money they didn’t earn in order to make their lives easier. By alleviating financial struggles, they erase the character-building requirements of life. Despite giving trillions to the underclass to ease their way, progress in improving their conditions has been negligible. In fact, it appears the more they are given the worse off they are.

People with a shred of wisdom can see this isn’t working. Liberals, however, cannot see the dismal results and refuse to acknowledge the enormous problem they have created. Their social sympathy has overwhelmed their reason. People who continue to make the same miscalculations year in and year out are often considered to be dullards. The left has replaced their intelligence with zealotry. They, like all fanatics, have no wisdom.
