Socialism demands a return to childhood dependence and the infantile world of subjective reality epitomized in the Green New Deal.

Selling Socialism to America


Linda Goudsmit imageBy  —— Bio and Archives

Socialism is a tough sell to Americans who evaluate ideas based on facts and a remarkably easy sell to Americans who evaluate ideas based on feelings. The adult world of facts is a foreign land to the infantilized world of feelings where low-info millennial voters currently dwell. The heated political battle between Americanism and Socialism parallels the battle between parents and their children who refuse to grow up emotionally and leave the nest.March 9, 2019Selling Socialism to America

Becoming an emotional adult requires embracing a fact based cause-and-effect view of the world that rejects the fantasies of childhood. “No Johnny, you cannot fly like a bird even though you really really really want to.” What happens if Johnny insists that he can fly and takes a confident leap from a tall building?
Socialism and Johnny have a lot in common – both insist they can do what objective reality proves they cannot do.

So, what is the problem?

America is being challenged by a Peter Pan generation that refuses to grow up and lives in a world of subjective reality where feelings rather than facts determine public policy. Their fragile selves require enforced political correctness and safe spaces to protect them from unwelcome facts and opposing ideas. Johnny climbs to the top of a tall building because he “feels” like a bird – he refuses to accept the fact that he is a human being and cannot fly. Human beings have limitations just like Socialism does.
The limitations of Socialism make it impossible to provide the social justice and income equality that it promises. First, the Peter Pan principle of robbing the rich to pay the poor eventually leaves everyone penniless. Second, Socialism is actually a binary political system with a very small wealthy ruling class and a very large population who service them. There is no middle class in Socialism because there is no private property and no upward mobility. The government confiscates and controls everything. Ask the Venezuelans.
Socialism’s free stuff is never free because you forfeit your freedom. That bears repeating. Socialism’s free stuff is never free because you forfeit your freedom.
Low-info low-level political leaders like Alexandria Ocasio-Ortez (AOC) have emerged to help sell Socialism to America. Who is buying? AOC’s supporters are low-info millennial voters who have been indoctrinated toward collectivism by the leftist liberal narrative that dominates public education K-12 and dictates university curricula. The leftist takeover of college campuses and its rejection of objective reality is discussed in chilling detail by Andrew Cunningham in his 3.8.19 American Thinker article.
It is painful to listen to AOC and to hear the absurdity of the public policies she proposes. After reviewing her Green New Deal one has to ask, “Did this woman really earn a degree in economics from Boston University?” Did she attend classes? I think she did.
AOC is the disturbing outcome of the feeling based education that intentionally values feelings over facts. Worthless degrees are awarded that celebrate the regressive, infantilized, subjective reality of children and not the fact based world of adults. Education in America has reversed itself. Rather than teaching the foundational facts necessary to succeed in the adult world, American education’s focus on student feelings has had a paralyzing effect and produced a Peter Pan generation of low-info dependent voters.

Peter Pan’s classic song is Socialism’s anthem.

I Won’t Grow Up
Peter Pan:  Are you ready for today’s lesson?
All: Yes, Peter
Peter: Listen to your teacher. Repeat after me:

I won’t grow up,
(I won’t grow up)
I don’t want to go to school.
(I don’t want to go to school)
Just to learn to be a parrot,
(Just to learn to be a parrot)
And recite a silly rule.
(And recite a silly rule)
If growing up means
It would be beneath my dignity to climb a tree,
I’ll never grow up, never grow up, never grow up
Not me!
Not I,
Not me!
Not me!
I won’t grow up,
(I won’t grow up)
I don’t want to wear a tie.
(I don’t want to wear a tie)
And a serious expression
(And a serious expression)
In the middle of July.
(In the middle of July)
And if it means I must prepare
To shoulder burdens with a worried air,

I’ll never grow up, never grow up, never grow up
Not me,
Not I,
Not me!
So there!
Never gonna be a man,
I won’t!
Like to see somebody try
And make me.
Anyone who wants to try
And make me turn into a man,
Catch me if you can.
I won’t grow up.
Not a penny will I pinch.
I will never grow a mustache,
Or a fraction of an inch.
‘Cause growing up is awfuller
Than all the awful things that ever were.
I’ll never grow up, never grow up, never grow up,
No sir,
Not I,
Not me,
So there!

I won’t grow up!
(I won’t grow up)
I will never even try
(I will never even try)
I will do what Peter tells me
(I will do what Peter tells me)
And I’ll never ask him why
(And I’ll never ask him why)

We won’t grow up!
(We won’t grow up)
We will never grow a day
(We will never grow a day)
And if someone tries to make it
(And if someone tries to make it)
We will simply run away
(We will simply run away)

I won’t grow up!
(I won’t grow up)
No, I promise that I won’t
(No, I promise that I won’t)
I will stay a boy forever
(I will stay a boy forever)
And be banished if I don’t!
(And be banished if I don’t)
And Never Land will always be
The home of beauty and joy
And neverty
I’ll never grow up, never grow up, never grow up
Not me!
Not me!
Not me!
Not me!
No sir!
Not me!

We do not live in Never Never land. We live in the United States of America where freedom and opportunity require a commitment to living in the adult world of objective reality. Socialism demands a return to childhood dependence and the infantile world of subjective reality epitomized in the Green New Deal. We must grow up and embrace the fact that human beings are not birds – they cannot fly even when they really really really feel like they can.
Socialism will kill America as surely as Johnny trying to fly.

Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, – Not what you think she is, Not who you think she it, she is dangerous!

NOT HERE FOR PROGRESS:
Meet the Tea Party-esque
insurgency seeking to “rebuild
the Democratic Party from 
scratch”

Hostile candidates and shady PACs are posing as progressive Democrats in the 2018 election, exploiting DNC voter data and driving party division — it’s a burn-it-to-the-ground strategy that foreign cyber attackers are all too eager to assist with

Ex-Sanders Officials Launch Justice Democrats – America, this is a very dangerous organization

New ‘political movement’ gets help from online net, The Young Turks
Justice-Democrats-logo-450.jpg

Former Bernie Sanders campaign execs Saikat Chakrabarti, former director of organizing technology, and Zack Exley, former senior adviser, have joined with Cenk Uygur (The Young Turks net founder), and online progressive talk radio host Kyle Kulinski to launch a Tea Party, of sorts, for the left.
Justice Democrats is described as a new political movement to pressure candidates and government officials, and elect new ones, saying the Democratic Party was broken and the “corporate, establishment wing” was to blame.
According to a spokesperson for the new movement, one difference between them and the right-leaning Tea Party movement is that they have the backing of a media network, TYT (The Young Turks), the online news network claiming 173 million views per month on YouTube and Facebook.

The group also says it will be a tight ship, with an executive director. “No politician will be safe simply because of their party affiliation, as Justice Democrats are prepared to run primaries against corporate, establishment Democrats,” Justice Democrats said in announcing its formation.
Planks on the Justice Democrats platform include supporting net neutrality, backing a Constitutional Amendment on election reform, rejecting corporate donations, reregulating Wall Street, increasing the estate tax, preserving capital gains taxes, backing free speech on college campuses, legalizing drugs, blocking the TPP (President Donald Trump agrees, having already pulled out of the trade deal on his first day in office, drawing applause at a meeting with union leaders), and banning the NSA from bulk data collection.
TYT is on XM Satellite radio and is formerly on Air America. Uygar is former host of MSNBC Live. Uygar suggested following the Election Day surprise that opposition would be galvanized against Trump.

WHAT IS DRIVING ALEXANDRIA OCASIO CORTEZ? YOU WILL BE SURPRISED! A MUST WATCH VIDEO!

THE BRAINS BEHIND AOC

YouTuber Mr. Reagan explains that with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez aka AOC, the people of New York did not elect a Puerto Rican girl from the Bronx. They actually elected an Indian guy from Texas, Saikat Chakrabarti, a white guy from Tennessee, Corbin Trent.
In 2016, AOC was working as a bartender in New York City. She’d never dreamed of running for Congress. It was her brother who entered her into a contest being held by a group called the Justice Democrats, headed by the above-named people. It was quite literally a casting call. Out of 10,000 entries, AOC won the role to play the Congresswoman from New York’s 14th District. They make no secret of this.
AOC indisputably has star power. The film featuring her at the Sundance Film Festival was such a hit, that the producers were immediately able to sell the non-theatrical distribution rights to Netflix for a lofty $10 million, which is almost unheard-of for an independent documentary film in today’s market.
From the Justice Democrats’ own promotional film, it appears that at least going in, AOC doesn’t plan on being the Bronx’ Representative for very long. As she says, in the promo, “If you’re a one-term Congress member, so what? You can make ten years’ worth of change in one term.” Disposable candidates actually appears to be part of the Justice Democrats’ business model.
The Justice Democrats have created a very data-driven, organized, Silicon Valley approach to politics and the Democrat Party. They have a business plan and a platform, which includes the Green New Deal, which they admit was written over the course of a weekend last December (obvious to anyone who’s read it). Their lack of qualifications notwithstanding, they want nothing less than to:
  • 1. replace the Democrat Party with the young Social Democrats who they control,
  • 2. take control of Congress and then
  • 3. take over the United States. It’s all about control.
They identify vulnerable districts they think they can win and they “primary them”. They have a very effective social media marketing plan for collecting new candidates who will run on their platform. They audition, groom and train their candidates in their talking points, they raise the campaign funds and expertly do their intensive social media.
AOC’s Chief-of-Staff, Saikat Chakrabarti, a 33-year-old self-made millionaire tech entrepreneur came under fire last week when it was discovered that he’d diverted over $1 million of AOC’s campaign funds into a series of shell corporations that appear to have been deliberately set up to obscure the destination of the funds, in a total contradiction to AOC’s pledges to increase transparency and to reduce the influence of “dark money” in politics. Both he and AOC have been named in a complaint filed with the Federal Elections Committee (FEC) to investigate their shady PACs. If convicted, they could technically do a few years in prison.
It’s been determined that the mastermind behind Chakrabarti is Zack Exley, a Saul Alinksy-ite, Radical Leftist who’s been a political operative for some time, working on campaigns for John Kerry, the UK’s Labour Party, Bernie Sanders, as the Chief Revenue Officer of the Wikimedia Foundation and an associate of George Soros’ Open Borders Foundation.
Don’t miss this scary, excellent report from Mr. Reagan.
