A daring post from a Liberal commenter both here and at Blogs4Victory. This should be any Progressive’s first read this morning:

Thanks for mentioning our conversations Cluster. I appreciate it. I think that Amazona is correct in saying that social issues should not be the focus of any government, let alone one based upon conservative precepts. To take that statement to its logical conclusion, we all should be libertarian, as long as we do not devolve into anarchy. Unfortunately this is not the case. There are many, to many IMO, that are obsessed with social issues and use the government and it’s law making and law enforcing power to enact both restrictions and allowances. I am not a constitutional expert. I have a DAR manual that I look at from time to time but mostly for a point of clarification. I agree that it is a brilliantly written document and that the authors had enough forethought and enlightenment to be cognizant of the future. But it is also a product of it’s time, written by human beings who were every bit as complicated and flawed and brilliant and tragic as anyone living today. The essence of all words, as a conveyance of thinking, is metaphorical. (A word itself.) And as such, the words are subject to interpretation. An argument can be made that the “intent” that Amazona mentioned, is nothing more than learned guessing. (Emphasis on ned in learned.) One of the functions of the Supreme Court, is to interpret the meaning of the language that comprises the Constitution, by way of a shared consensus of opinion between a quorum of justices.
But in a representative government, if a social issue is a concern, then it does become subject to legislation. This has been a fact throughout human history. We do not live in a vacuum (no pun intended towards those who doubt my aviator skills) and in 2013 there are over 300 million people who live in the US. In 1776 there were ~ 2.5 and were primarily agrarian.
I think that conservative principals are the best choice where the issue(s) are economic in nature. But I do not disparage a degreed economist who happens to have a more fundamental understanding of the dynamics of a multi-trillion economy and how it interacts not only with those that have a dollar in their pocket, but now amongst the entire planet as well.
As I see it, it is not the educational system that is to blame, or the inherent bias that all people and businesses possess that is the root of the problems conservatism is experiencing, it is the behavior, the claims and the reporting of it. A few examples exist on this blog alone. Retired Spook going on about transformation. Society, culture and politics are fluid, not static.Please provide some specific examples Retired Spook, of how our country is suffering from the progressive nature of time and the changing attitudes of the population. There are very few examples that my feeble brain can come up with that verify your conviction that an uber left even exists, let alone paint with such broad strokes this “intense dislike of how America was founded.” Just how was it founded? Not why, but how. And why do you stereotype? Not all “liberals” are America hating. In fact, most people desire a better America, not a worse one.
Amazona’s use of inflammatory adjectives as a method of demeaning and undermining alternative points of view. And her obsession with spelling, grammar and punctuation. (I write the way I speak, commas substituting for pauses.)
I won’t even address Neo. There isn’t a better representative for the fanatical, fringe extreme that gives conservatives a bad reputation than he. Conservatism isn’t the problem. It’s conservatives.
I am a supporter of smaller government. I do not think excessive regulation(s) are a good thing. I think local control is superior to national but I also recognize the duplicity that currently exists on the right, how traditional conservatism has been eviscerated by a pandering to a certain type of uninformed and fearful individual and how tribalism has been exploited to further the monetary goals of others. This is the human condition. This is what Machiavelli often referred to and encouraged. I think that for conservatism to make a resurgence, it has to go through a metamorphosis. Unfortunately for those currently experiencing this change, it is a difficult process and it is perfectly understandable to want to blame those that don’t subscribe to the ideology, whom are not fixated with blaming the “media” or contemporary popular culture for their poor and declining image. There is a difference between cooperation and capitulation. This demarcation applies to all sides of the political grid. Self examination is a positive. A refusal to accept the need to change is not. And this applies to everyone on both a personal level and as a member of a group.
OK. I think I will slither back into my hole now.

I have taken some time to digest the blog post of noted documentarian Michael Moore of 24 December 2012, “Celebrating the Prince of Peace in the Land of Guns.” Moore makes a clear case of why there is so much gun violence in the United States and why a culture of gun worship makes it difficult to remove this cancer from American society. As Editor-in-Chief of this newspaper I support what Moore has written and feel compelled to off even more advice and explanation of why this situation, the collection of more guns than people in the United States, has gotten so far out of claw.

zombie-fighting

Moore cites Fear/Racism, Poverty and Selfishness as the reasons for so many guns being in the hands of Americans and he is spot on in this assessment. There is no doubt that “fear of others” also described by many social scientist here is Dis as “tribalism” is the root cause of the bulk of the problems in the culture and society of the United States of America. It has been said for more than two centuries as reckoned from Terra that multiculturalism would solve many of the quotidian societal problems in the nation and diversity would drive the need to keep the brown and black in poverty to the benefit of the white. Once again the root cause of the Newtown shooting massacre in its most raw and basic terms was the fear of losing material possessions or being harmed physically by a roving band of well armed “others.” Nancy Lanza was seeking to protect herself from rape/robbery/murder/home invasion because she saw an economic collapse coming in her feverish mind. Therefore she collected the materials she needed to defend herself from the “threat” she saw as imminent from a brown enemy she saw repeatedly in the media as a direct threat to her comfort and safety. Here’ I have to take the MSM to task in local communities form their constant drumbeat on television focusing on the criminal element among the United States’ 45 plus million black citizens.

end-poverty-now-ii

While I would be remiss to ignore black crime, especially black gun violence, there must be a reflection upon why crime occurs and in what demographic it concentrates. As a demon journalist, I understand that many would posit that Nancy Lanza’s fear and her son Adam Lanza’s actions had nothing to do with their upper middle class lifestyle. To come to such a conclusion is the very definition of a Black Swan. Economic class is not always a leading indicator for gun violence but poverty does carry a far greater weight among minorities than it does among whites. One has to simply review the statistics for any calendar year in the modern era to see that black gun crime is generally restricted to those living just above or below the poverty line. The same statistics overlap for white gun crime making it clear that both the fact that the nation’s streets are awash in firearms and that too many have been left to poverty for the benefit of a false veneer of middle class white comfort, or, if I may go further, moral superiority. And here is the greatest of crimes because as Moore states, “If you don’t believe that, ask yourself this: If your neighbor has a job and is making $50,000/year, what are the chances he’s going to break into your home, shoot you and take your TV? Nil.” More work for those who are willing would make America a safer place simply by making consumers out of those who would fall into a criminal lifestyle. Many white conservatives would surely disagree with me on that point because now I would be guilt of the crime of socialism which to them means, “taking our stuff.”

Selfishness

And what exactly makes people worship stuff so much? I like many Human Beings here in Hell live a quite comfortable life knowing that my children are safe and secure, that I have a job which pays me well as does my mate and I live in a home that most living Americans would consider posh. However, here in Hell’s capital Dis, I do not require an arsenal of firearms and ammunition to keep my possessions safe. To be honest on many nights I forget to lock the front door. I have no fear of the Justice Force coming to my front door to have an inquiry about a weapon that I have owned, nor do I fear a relative that has lost their mind but not gotten the treatment he or she needs ending up on the news having blown away scores of innocent people. In the end despite the volume of references to myself in those statements recently written it is not about me anymore than it is about any of the selfish millions of Americans who think a gun is the answer to their potential fears or bigotries. Americans are exceptional in many ways just not in many of the ones in which they should be proud. I see the white conservatives [and the black conservatives who serve a lesser purpose than a remora serves a shark] in America decrying the desire of the Liberals in Congress wishing to limit the size of ammunition clips or remove assault weapons altogether while being among the first to invoke the religion of their second most worshiped deity to express consolation for the victims of yet another shooting massacre. It is high time that this violence come to and end and to do that a multigenerational effort to end the fear associated with bigotry in all its forms from all its sources, to end poverty and all its attendant causes and foremost to end the delusion that in a nation where a man can murder 26 innocent people in an elementary school that somehow it is their right to possess the very same weapons he used to commit this atrocity.

When a white conservative tells you that the Newtown shootings don’t compare to the level of black gun violence in the inner cities agree with this reply: “Then I feel as you do that all the guns need to be taken away and anyone caught with one should be subject to a long period of incarceration?”
