Amazona there is a difference between taking a short cut to the Moral High Ground and actually looking out from the Moral High Ground. I’ll give you this point you are absolutely right that it is as simple as voting for Progressive or Liberal candidates to get your moral superiority biscuit. As a group Progressives do stand for good things. Being against poverty, torture, corruption, misogyny, bigotry, abuse aren’t simply things that Progressives are against though. Conservatives are also against many of these societal scourges.

This is where things get confusing and clearly why conservatives are tripped up and find themselves unpopular both electorally and in general. Progressives don’t require a purity test, a loyalty test, or a religious affiliation to walk into our tent. Conservatives with their messages about tax rates being too high should, on that issue alone, have had a way in to the minds of the moderates and independents out there but for some reason they have a social agenda that is more important to them than the economic agenda.

Issues like same sex marriage, abortion and immigration are where conservatives fail simply because their tent is not as inclusive. I’m not going to be so closed minded as to say that this is because of some grand bigoted conspiracy but it is what it is. Conservatives offer little to blacks, Latinos, members of the LGBTQ community, single mothers or the non religious. The coalition that has been built by conservatives since the fall of Nixon of working class whites in the rural West and South and a few upper middle class and wealthy whites who have an agenda driven by heredity and inheritance. This coalition had a majority during the Reagan era and had the Moral High Ground in the dying age of the Cold War. This coalition drove America forward to a conservative vision that likely thought that with political power would come the power to change society; to pull it back from the brink. At this point in Reagan’s second term no one would have imagined that 18 states and the District of Columbia would recognize the marriage rights of same sex couples.

And yet, thirty years later, here you are in an America that seems nearly alien to you. Looking up at people like me who are standing on top of the mountain of Morality. What happened? Is the question most of you are asking and that is the smartest question you can ask and it has an easy answer. Three decades ago, the Greatest Generation were the electoral force in America. They were more conservative than even you Amazona having never dabbled in the experimentation of the 1960s and 1970s with Liberalism as you have said you did. These men and women who were adults in the 1940s and 1950s were around your age now in the 1980s and Reagan was an ultimate relief to them. Hey were afraid the Greatest were that all of their hard work to secure freedom and liberty for the coming generations of THEIR CHILDREN was going to wasted by the creeping Socialism, Diversity and Depravity that they saw in Liberalism.

The answer is obvious what happened. Those from the Greatest Generation had children, the Baby Boomers, and those Boomers had children in the 1970s. Those Generation X children had children Generation Y, or the Millenials. Being born now to the Generation Y women are the Digital Natives of the information age or Gen Z kids. The easy answer to the question of what happened to fear of authoritarian religious, political or corporate power is the last generation that never questioned them has nearly died entirely and has been replaced with an ever more questioning set of grandchildren.

Those grandchildren continued the trend of questioning all authority that began in the 1960s into the new Millennium. I’ll be the first to admit that the War on Poverty was a failure because it simply threw money at a problem that could not be solved so simply. However, in that time the Greatest Generation still held sway on all matters social and the ground was not yet fertile for the sort of change that one sees today.

hindsight 2315
In Hindsight
On my side of the great political divide Progressives worry about the pendulum swinging back toward conservatism on a daily basis. Maybe the generation that will be born to young girls that are infants now in America in the 2030s and 2040s will hearken back to the nostalgic days of the 1940s and 1950s. Who knows? By the time they go to the polls for the first time they will live in an America so saturated in information both for the good and the bad that the messages that resonated with 21 year olds in 1945 will seem as archaic as silent movies do today.

dzama2398-200

We, Ourselves, of The Collective and The Meditators on all matters metaphysical embrace the decisions made by the Supreme Court of the United States this week regarding marriage equality. Equally, We denounce their decision regarding the Voting Rights Act as a retrograde step that gives hope to bigots that they can control society via the ballot box. Control is a major theme in modern American society as We see it. Corporations want to control the the vast pool of money held in the hands of a powerful few and use it to generate even more money. Marketing firms want to control the minds of American consumers to buy what they do not need yet must have. Religions have ceased to be in the business of “saving souls” and have devolved into the business of saving their political power by way of culture war battles that in the great scheme of things mean very little. it is a sad commentary on the young adulthood of the American republic.

Mark Edward Noonan is a human male who lives near Las Vegas, Nevada. He has admitted that he was not always an ultraconservative, or a libertarian. For most of his life he was a typical average human who wanted the same things most young men want– a person to love who loves him, money and recognition for his accomplishments. Noonan got none of these things and his life became a cycle of depression and desire wrapped in ennui. He took solace, as he has admitted in online pornography and while the Collective sees nothing shameful or wrong with observing adult human sexuality transmitted by digital images using this replace real world relationships is a dangerous path to trek upon. Sad and lonely Mark Edward Noonan turned to the last resort for most people in your time who are desperate for some sort of social interaction that can lead to the physical coupling that is necessary for the mental health of the human organism– the Church.

Like most who are addicted to a destructive behavior Noonan is not simply comforted by his transformation he is compelled to transform others as well. While We, Ourselves, find this an admirable avocation which is to be applauded all sentient beings organized into a society must understand that all actions, even those secret and terrible that many would like to remain hidden, have consequences. In his article at Blogs4Victory this morning, which The Meditators digested slowly, Noonan decries the victories won for advocates of marriage equality in the United States as an infringement on the religion that turned him into a Man from a Loser. he argues that his right to press the source of his transformation from a Loser into a Man into the hearts and minds of his colleagues at work or anywhere else for that matter is being restricted and that that right should be codified into law.

Here is where we find a conundrum that leads into a deep dark trap for anyone who takes their Metaphysics seriously. the desire to control for one’s own purpose to the detriment of the rights of others is a ditch dug with the shovel and mattock of preferential logic and hypocrisy. In their minds these people can hold two polar opposite ideas and to them they seem to compliment one another. The first is that they have the right based upon their beliefs, unproven in any Court of Law or any laboratory of Science, to hold a position of primacy within a society simply because for generations this has been the case. Swiftly it is forgotten by such persons, that Change is the only and singular constant in any social organization. Second, they feel that because they have this right to primacy within a society based solely on tradition and race that they have the right to deny others, with whom they find flaws or by the teachings of their religion they find their behavior abhorrent to religious teachings, their own civil rights. This is the worst of all traps.

Noonan, by his own words says, “Of course, now I want a bit more – I want that really muscular protection for Free Exercise. Rather tired of being pushed around – and so I want laws on the books which make it illegal to attempt to push me around based upon my religious beliefs…and same goes for everyone else. Yes, I realize this will then erect no legal barrier to someone who wants to say that smoking dope is their sacrament, or even that Muslims might want four wives. I’m indifferent to that – my ability to freely exercise my religion trumps all else here and I’ll take the good with the bad.” To Mark Noonan the concept of Free Exercise refers to the Free Exercise of the beliefs that transformed him from a Loser in his own mind to Man in outward appearance to the world at large. It is because he craves the respect of others and recognition for his transformation that he feels that he should have the power, without consequence to spread his message of conversion to all as is taught by his particular belief. The trap here belongs to Us as those who both are at war with Theocracy, in all its forms, and with hypocrisy in all its forms. It would be facile for The Collective to opine that in this case We, Ourselves, find firm footing in Metaphysics and Logic to dictate that those who feel this way should have no rights to do so. Such a thing would be an annoyance to society and make Human beings who did not believe as Noonan does uncomfortable in their quotidian activities. However, to do such a thing would make Us a far greater hypocrite than mark Edward Noonan.

The reality of the matter is that in America Mark Noonan needs no muscular protection for his religion because he has that legal protection already. His upset comes not from that he knows this but that those protections for his religious liberty are limited by the only power in America greater than organized religion– capitalism. This is why this man portrays himself as a Distributist and this bring Us deeper into Mark Noonan’s fallacious hypocrisy.

Distributism, an arcane by product of Noonan’s religious belief, holds the following as central, “Distributism sees the family of two parents and their child or children as the central and primary social unit of human ordering and the principal unit of a functioning distributist society and civilization. This unit is also the basis of a multi-generational extended family, which is embedded in socially as well as genetically inter-related communities, nations, etc., and ultimately in the whole human family past, present and future. The economic system of a society should therefore be focused primarily on the flourishing of the family unit, but not in isolation: at the appropriate level of family context, as is intended in the principle of subsidiarity. Distributism reflects this doctrine most evidently by promoting the family, rather than the individual, as the basic type of owner; that is, distributism seeks to ensure that most families, rather than most individuals, will be owners of productive property. The family is, then, vitally important to the very core of distributist thought.” Mark Noonan believes this and goes the extra mile with this comment on the same article, “My view is that gay marriage would best remain banned – but I’ve also come to the conclusion that marriages, themselves, should not be sanctioned by the State in any way, shape or form. My desire is to as swiftly as possible separate marriage and State (thus making the push for gay marriage moot) while at the same time enacting laws which put very long, sharp and powerful teeth in to our First Amendment right to the free exercise of religion (boiled down, the laws would come out to hold that when in doubt, a person’s claim to free exercise trumps State requirements). As for marriage, itself, that is for Christians and Jews who actually practise their faith and it is up to us – as believers – to make it work as God intended.”

It would be expected that a man who has made a transformation from Loser to Man by virtue of such powerful belief coupled with adherence to Distributism would have a large family of children who soon would be going out into the world spreading the story of their father’s ascendance from the depths in the near future. No, not at all. Noonan has married but he has no children. His life is the antithesis of what he believes and is in chaotic opposition to the very rules by which he says be was transformed. Mark Noonan wants special laws to give his beliefs primacy over all others but he does not believe that two women or two men who are committed to each other should have their marriages recognized by the States in which they reside or by the federal government because these unions do not produce children. Yet his own marriage recognized in every state of the Union has produced none. While there are no laws in his State against his wife performing fellatio on him, or he performing cunnilingus on his wife or both of them engaging in anal sexual intercourse Noonan calls these acts between consenting adults of the same sex “abhorrent.” Why then has this man not exploded from his own hypocrisy?

MARRIAGE EQUALITY WINS TWO MAJOR VICTORIES IN US SUPREME COURT; THE BATTLE CONTINUES ON NATIONAL LEVEL

Ruling Expected On California's Anti-Gay Marriage Bill, Proposition 8
© Getty Images/Justin Sullivan

I have spent the last half an hour in my office with the door closed weeping with joy. Fred Schwartz sent me a video of Representative John Lewis a man whom I both admire and adore arguing against the Defense of marriage Act on the floor of the House in 1996. Once I’d seen this the tears went from sobs to a joyful flood.

I cannot write this brief post without the details of the two decisions. In the DOMA case, United States v. Windsor there was a 5-4 decision with Justice Kennedy writing the opinion joined by Kagan, Sotomayor, Breyer and Ginsburg. In the Prop 8 case from California, the question was about the legal standing to appeal the decision of the District Court in California regarding an overturn of the Prop 8 vote which changed the California constitution. This opinion was written by Chief Justice John Roberts and was joined by Scalia, Kagan, Breyer and Ginsburg.

Reactions from both sides of this issue, both from pundits and people, to follow.

VOX POPULI: ANOTHER BLOGS4VICTORY CONSERVATIVE GETS THE FACTS WRONG

Posted in BLOGS 4 VICTORY, CONSERVATIVE FEAR, CONSERVATIVE HYPOCRISY, CONSERVATIVE IGNORANCE, MARRIAGE EQUALITY, SCOTUS, THE CONSIGLIERI, VOX POPULI with tags , , , , , on 26/03/2013 by consigliereciucava

Thoeressamt

One of the chief reasons the Conservative wing in politics in America is failing is because they will use incorrect facts to support their social agenda. Just last night, at Blogs4Victory dbschmidt posted this:

With your comment about “The reason conservatives are losing elections is because people who say they are conservatives really do believe things like being gay or lesbian or bisexual or transgender disqualifies you from public service/civil rights/ personal freedom or any of the other benefits a great democracy can bestow because a few people feel their so called morals and religion are more important than what is actually right.” and in particular civil rights, and “great democracy” I feel a need to put things into perspective.

First, and foremost–this great experiment is considered a republic–but I am sure that is what you meant. Nevertheless, Gay, or otherwise, marriage has been rejected every time it has become an issue that can be voted on by the people of the US–so you resort to the SCOTUS where nine people can force your so called “right”, or better yet “civil right”, down over 90% of the US populations throat.

Personally, I really do not think it is the job of the government to decide social issues like this but I was wondering how you feel about (being nice here) the justices deciding for over 90% of Americans what we need to “believe?” Well, for now they did decide ObamaCare was a tax so what if they also decide every American needs to purchase and be trained in the use a firearms? You up for nine folks in robes deciding your life?

I am not against the SCOTUS but somewhat against the cases they now hear.

Now as a Thoeressamt my language doesn’t have a word for “smarmy” which was the word Fred Schwartz used to describe dbschmidt’s barb about the United States being a “republic” vice a “democracy”. The conservative wanted to show me that he was more knowledgeable about the nature of the American system of government. I can accept that on the basis that in my native tongue those words are interchangeable. What I cannot accept is that he continued to parrot the untrue line about marriage equality not ever having been approved by the voters in any state in his Union. Four states, Maine, Maryland, Minnesota and Washington all voted in support of marriage equality in the election this past November.

the power of love

I disagree with dbschmidt in that there are times and there are issues that need to be resolved socially by the SCOTUS and that this issue of marriage equality is one of those issues. From what I can see, the Defense of marriage Act is unconstitutional since it creates a second class status for LGBT persons who wish to commit to those that they love with the same rights as heterosexual couples. True, I do not have the many layers of baggage that many conservatives carry about the issue. To me and many with whom I work and interact with daily this is simply an issue of full faith and credit on the legal side and of love and family on the emotional side. The facts are the facts and with those facts in mind I believe the side of civil rights will win over the side of decaying faux moralism.

VOX POPULI: CONSERVATIVES VENT THEIR SPLEENS ON CHIEF JUSTICE JOHN ROBERTS

I knew this was coming from the instant I saw news reports that the Affordable Health Care Act had been upheld. Conservatives were so certain they would get their way and if they didn’t they would have Justice Kennedy to blame. The great shock of this day for Conservatives in America is that a man appinted by their last president, George W Bush, was the one who sided with “liberal” justices in upholding the law. Here’s a little of what is being said by Conservatives now at Jim Hoft’s Gateway Pundit. [All times CDT.-F.S.]

Supreme courts need to go. Make it jury duty style. 9 random citizen are given the Constitution, read it base their decision on it. Nobody needs “constitutional law scholars”. The Constitution is very clear, pretty much in every civilized country. So let that “Constitutional jury” read it, then read the bill in question and let them decide.

Also Stolen Valor is apparently unconstitutional as well.

Sold out by another phony squishy Bush-family appointee. Hardly surprising. Bush also wanted to open the borders, grant La Amnestia to La Raza, and gave us this piece of lime jello…who couldn’t stand that President Hector Macho Camacho would call him out if he stood up for the Constitution. I guess we’ve been tricked again, just like Bush Sr. was had by David Souter. Or maybe this is just a Bush thing. They get elected as Republicans and then appoint one conservative and one Leftist. Well, this will spur Obama on to utter victory in November because who’s going to put up a real fight? Romney? The architect of the just upheld Obamacare law? What we’ve just seen is what they call a turning point, ladies and gentlemen. Maybe we should start nominating real conservatives if we want conservative results, unfailingly conservative justices, and conservative governance?

Bill,

I’d like your optimism, but the last time we had a GOP Congress and Pres, they only offered us tax cuts. All well and good, but no action on anything else. Man does not live on tax cuts alone. Too full of cowardice to drill in ANWAR, not much action on abortion or other cultural issues. They could have & should have passed market-based laws to address the market failures in insurance and medical services provision and pricing. It would have prevented this evil mess.

Gary commented:

Peggy

You’re exactly right.

When the other side wins, they move on to the next goal. When they lose, they go at it another way to achieve the goal.
When our side wins, we rest. when we lose, we take a giant step back.

How can our side win if we never advance the ball?
Better question, what great endeavor will the left push for next? Cancelling citizenship?

Multitude commented:

John “Kennedy” Roberts is known in DC to be a social fellow, eager to be liked by the DC elites, media powers, etc. To some of us, his turncoatism is no surprise; it’s consistent with RNC Progressivism.

“Left and right” progressives frequently disagree on method and scope, with the former tending to consist more of international globalist factions and the latter being more “Pro-US” in their orientation, but both completely agree on the need to cram down and control the population. ObamaCare helps ensure that the serfs won’t have the capacity to overthrow the feudal progressives once the gig is up on the global debt ponzi scheme. They may scream when they realize the hundreds of trillions were actually redistributed to the progressive elites of both parties, but if they want their health care and food stamps (which will be critical when it collapses), they will shut up and sit down.

It’s probably too late for the U.S. Romney won’t do much, unless forced to by a tea party driven Congress. Re-nominating progressives like Hatch only ensures this unfortunate outcome. Aggressive Tea Party efforts to advance the right candidates and hold them accountable is probably our last chance to avoid the U.S. fully embracing the Putin “Progressive Oligarchy” model now.
