Policies on everything from Covid, immigration, economics, taxation, racial equity, abortion, policing, property rights, personal liberties, and foreign policy are demonstrably counterproductive, hurtful, and lethal under Democrat stewardship. With such dreadful outcomes and no proposed deviations, the only conclusion to be drawn is that they know full well what they’re doing, know the impact on human lives, and don’t care. To knowingly and willfully destroy the people and institutions of this country is not just wrong, it is evil.
It is difficult to describe the transformation of both individuals and our society at the hands of establishment leftists within the United States. The worst in human nature is now being celebrated and the authoritarian nanny state has grown to unprecedented size. While these concepts are nothing new – having played out in the bloody courtyards of guillotined France or the streets of Russia, to name but a few – the current iteration of American politics represents something worse, because our society has previously been so decent and fair.
The likes of Barack Obama, Kamala Harris, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, the “Squad,” and too many more to name are willing to consign our liberty-oriented, constitutional republic to the historical scrapheap in the name of utopian progressivism. The fact that they are maligning and destroying systems that enabled a once-unimaginable bevy of medical, technological, societal, scientific, and governmental advances, as well as individual prosperity and independence, makes them not only wrong but evil in their motivations and outcomes.
Human nature and human psychology can explain a lot about why people do what they do. For example, humans, men in particular, are inherently programmed to vie for power, wealth, and status. Of course, this is the general rule, and exceptions are made. Just as not all men seek to reach the hierarchical pinnacle, not all women wait for a rich and powerful man to come along. Hillary, Kamala, Nancy, and Alexandria are but a few examples. This last point is espcially true in the United States, where women can dream of and act on unlimited aspirations by being the beneficiaries of the most free and open society for the fairer sex in the history of bipedalism.
Amazon’s Jeff Bezos is low-hanging fruit because he attained that for which all men strive to the nth degree. As a result, in the wake of his recent space launch, Bezos faced renewed backlash for his overt display of wealth, prestige, power, and influence. His venture was neither wasteful nor anyone’s business, but here is the only response that matters: If his critics could, would they want to swap their lives with his, able to enjoy everything that comes with being the world’s richest man? The obvious answer is yes, and even the most avowed man-hating feminist would abandon her principles to switch sexes. Who wouldn’t want to vacation on this yacht or live in these homes? The hate for Bezos might ostensibly arise from concerns over wealth inequalities and climate abuse, but ultimately any criticism is most deeply rooted in covetousness and greed. Human nature propelled Bezos above the stratosphere and it also wrote those angry Tweets from a parent’s basement.
Still, while human nature can explain a lot, it still doesn’t explain why Democrat leadership – not its voting base – is intent on creating the worst possible outcomes for the people it claims to represent. It’s easy to understand why low-wage workers prefer to stay at home while getting free checks; it’s not so easy to explain at a deeper level why Democrats write those checks. Don’t they know dependency is tragic and unhealthy? It’s easy to understand why low-information citizens believe that police murder blacks; it’s not so easy to explain why Democrats push policies they know will result in greater gang violence and urban hopelessness. Do they care?
Democrat leaders supposedly represent the American people and each took an oath to serve them, yet the focus remains only on personal and party power, not individual and community wellbeing. It is therefore neither exaggerated nor hyperbolic to note that every single Democrat policy position is morally untenable. Distilled, then, it becomes clear that every position is crafted to sound good but whose workings produce an opposite effect. Indeed, no rational or honest thinker could form an argument as to why any single position is grounded in sound policy, let alone morality.
Take the issue of immigration, for example. No serious person has ever taken the stance that America should have absolutely no immigration. That’s as stupid as it is naive. People will always come here, and indeed need to come here, but there’s a difference between supporting immigration – as most sane and decent people do – and allowing for an unfettered, unchecked, and unmitigated flow of humans into our country. This one-way migratory pattern brings vast amounts of drugs, weapons, gangs, sexually-abused minors and women, and now Covid into our midst. Moreover, open borders encourage the dangerous desert crossing that inevitably leads to heatstroke and dehydration. On top of these significant issues, the majority of people arriving are unable to support themselves and require substantial tax-payer intervention. There is no national obligation to prioritize the needs of non-citizens over citizens, nor is it selfish to want a country to take care of its own; in fact, that is the most fundamental and basic function of a country. Unfortunately, under Democrat policies many illegals receive stimulus checks and welfare benefits while hard-working American families do not.
At the same time, Democrats oppose any successful immigration from the murderous, oppressive Cuban regime. Boats by the hundreds attempt open-water crossings to the Florida coast, only to be turned away by vigilant Coast Guard cutters. Given everything we know, it is inescapable to conclude that Democrat immigration policy is grounded not in humanity, but in electoral considerations. Those crossing the Mexican border will likely produce future Democrat voters, while those crossing the water to Florida will likely produce future freedom-loving conservatives. Is the wellbeing of any single person considered, whether from Mexico or Cuba? Of course not; that’s why this is evil.
Why do Democrats do this? Are these people simply vying for power? Because they can? Are they sorely misguided? Are they too unintelligent to grapple with complex issues? Are they selfish? Are they immature? Have they been too spoiled by American prosperity to understand the harshness of human existence? Are they detached from reality? Do they think they’re better than everyone else?
Yes, come the short and quick answers.
People do things because they can. People in power do things to consolidate additional power. America’s founders knew this, and tried to put as many mechanisms in place to limit the ability for abuses to arise in the fledgling country. They simply knew that history was full of awful people doing awful and evil things.
Add modern Democrats to the list.
