Liberalism Is Dead

Liberalism Is Dead

Anyone who has read my blog knows that I usually refer to the left as liberal-progressive-socialists. I do this for the simple reason that I've long believed that the use of the word "liberal" was inaccurate given the goals of the left, i.e., total domination of the people by the government. In this the left, in their drive to create a statist regime in America, actually promotes socialist fascism rather than liberalism.

I remember when I studied government in high school many, many years ago that the teacher drew a line on the chalk board. In the center he wrote "Democracy," at the extreme left he wrote "Communism" and at the extreme right he wrote "Nazis." A simple drawing meant to differentiate the three systems from each other but, as I look at history, I realize that the drawing while accurate, was erroneous. With the labels remaining in place the two ends should have been curled up until instead of a straight line there was a circle where Communist and National Socialist (Nazi) were side-by-side at one side of the circle and directly opposite is Democracy. And joining Communist and National Socialist would be "Facism." Oversimplified? Most assuredly, but still, it is accurate.
