Quote of The Day - Journolist

"It was a network of high level opinion makers, united by a "progressive" vision for America. They believed that their superior judgement and insight, obligated them to present Americans with a view of reality, that they would be too stupid and reactionary to grasp unaided."

Trevor Loudon of New Zeal describing the nature of the now infamous "Journolist"

Bezmenov was right, and I fear that even things like this aren't enough to wake people up. Socialists are far too embedded in our government, media, and education. I suppose it'd be more accurate so say that Socialist ideals are embedded in those institutions.

I agree with Alan who notes that Socialism always fails but I'm not so confident that we, by virtue of being Americans, will simply not stand for the death that accompanies the collectivist ideal. Sure, Americans right now would not stand for it, but what about future generations?

Right now our biggest weapon is the free flow of information. Yes, academia and mainstream media have done an excellent job teaching the wonders of Socialism, but they have nothing in their arsenal that rivals the power of Al Gore's intertubes.

Socialism/Collectivism can only survive so long as a small group of people can control the message. Socialist states cannot survive unless they can keep people in and information out. That is increasingly difficult to do in the world we live in.

Even a soft Socialist state like the UK will eventually implode once the populace has been sucked dry of wealth, productivity, and the drive to succeed and innovate. That is an inevitable consequence of Socialism. It's not a matter of if but of when.

Interesting ideas. Thanks for sharing. If you get the chance, check out and buy military surplus over at my site.

Mike, it is difficult to imagine an intellectually weaker discussion of this issue. Did you even engage your brain before writing this?

Mike W. said...

Search for the term "Scott."

As I've shown on this blog before, only one of us is incapable of rational thought.

Feel free to engage me though, despite your intellectual deficiencies Mr. Scott. I'll be more than happy to continue exposing your ignorance and bigotry.

R. Stanton Scott said...

So, Mike, you still find intellectual power in calling people names.

You know, of course, that this sort of thing really impresses judges, so it should fit right in with a career in the law.

Mike W. said...

Again you show your reading comprehension issues Stan. What name did I call you here? Oh that's right, I didn't.

Move along, unless you have an intelligent argument to make (and are willing to defend it with facts)

Looks like you hit close to mark with that one, Mike.

How childish is that little copy-cat game too!

You point out he's a fool on his site, he does the right thing and calls you on it.

You then bring the facts and logic and tear apart his stupidity.

....his response is to copy your initial comment here. heheheh

Grow up, Stan!
