In Dr. Melvyn Fein’s excellent MDJ column on Monday he writes: “Liberalism is — and was — a program designed by elitists for elitists. It never was for, or appreciative of, the little guy.”
This is it in a nut shell. Liberalism is a big bed full of strange and disparate people, but only two classes: the “intelligentsia” — Hollywood, academics, big government types — on one side, and their willing, unsuspecting, useful idiots on the other.
The elite know why they’re in ostensible collusion with the hoi polloi, but the “ignoratti” hang on just for the free ride. But then there are others who think they’re in with the “in” crowd, but really are not. They’re the dupes who will quite soon find themselves to be among the targets they thought were restricted to conservatives.
Liberalism is all about control of the masses by the few. It’s a toxic and fatal brew, like the Jonestown cocktails, but disguised as nectar. If they were to actually make use of the brains God gave them, they could simply look around at places like North Korea and Cuba, and/or they could read about such recent failures as the USSR and East Germany, but they have been carefully taught in colleges across the country — hot beds of communism all — not to believe their own eyes, or their own brains.
Watching the West commit slow suicide is sorely vexing.
