Why America Should Hate Liberalism #5

A dear friend and fellow patriot, Karen Kuiper, commented about my series, Why Americans Should Hate Liberalism.

I interpreted her remarks to indicate her bewilderment about how Liberals could be so stupid as to consistently pass laws, or ignore laws, that make matters worse for America’s citizens and speed our decline as an international power.

My research into the workings of liberal philosophies and practices, the world around, has led me to a simple conclusion.

Once liberalism gains control of a political system, a political and socioeconomic system must be driven into destruction before a significant proportion of the affected citizens will rise-up and put an end to Liberalism’s pathologically destructive hegemony.

Control, or better put, the counter-controls against liberalism remain the ultimate challenge. It was once thought that America’s unique and masterfully designed Constitution was enough, but liberalism has found ways to defeat even that.

We shall now see about the matter of Control.

I fear this national election could be the tipping-point to a fast slide into a long American nightmare.

The following was my answer to my friend, Karen.

The simple reason why Liberalism consistently does self-defeating things was also hard for me to understand.

But, everything will “click into place”, cognitively, as soon as we change our perspective on Liberalism’s guiding motives.

Very simply put, Liberals are driven to increase their power. They are generally pathologically selfish and irresponsible. They do not care about America’s future, or that of its citizens.They say they do because it is what the public wants to hear and it helps them win elections.

Liberals care only about their own growing high status and the growth of their political power. It is in their best interests that the culture deteriorate to a hellish state.

In this way liberals have criminals, poor ignorant illegal aliens, drug addicts, single mothers in poverty with children, pregnant teens, sex addicts, gambling addicts, drug addicts, and bankrupt/broken businessmen, etc., who will vote for them in order to get more free medicine, housing, food, phones, electricity, health care, and so-on.

This is the unhappy conclusion that I have been forced to by the consistent world-wide evidence.

Do not listen to what the liberals say…just watch what they do and pay attention to how it benefits them in their mad quest for political power and permanent membership in America’s ruling class.

P.S. I challenge anyone to debate these perceptions with me.

Why Americans Should Hate Liberalism #4

Why Americans Should Hate Liberalism #4

The following are a series of ideas and paraphrases taken from Micheal Martin’s excellent book; Liberalism: The Demise of America.

  •  Liberals hope to construct utopias by planning and designing socialist or communist states and embracing the idea of a transnational government. The many failures of socialist and communist states are well documented (Russia, China, North Korea, and much of Latin America, for examples). To the extent that any such states have recovered from their socialist/communist disasters, they have implemented important components of free market enterprises.
  • Regarding Transnational States, The history of gross failure of both the League of Nations and its successor, The United Nations are illustrative of the old saying: “Too many chefs spoil the brew.” This is particularly true when a large number of the chefs are socialist and communist nations.
  • Liberals systematically increase state control over citizen’s behavior. They do this through the control of education, the popular media, the news media, and though increasing restrictions on citizen’s speech via political correctness. The weakening of religious influences over population behavior is also a major goal of Liberals.
  • American Liberalism is also destroying, capitalism, families, Constitutional governance, law, moral values, and the incentives/work/vigor and the independence of individuals.
  • Liberals destroy economies trough reckless spending and massive debt. This is an age-old trick of dispensing governmental entitlements, and redistributing the taxed wealth of productive citizens. This is done in order to win political support from a growing population of unemployed, irresponsible and dependent citizens who then become “a captured” voting block for liberal candidates. This selfish and irresponsible political strategy strengthens liberal political parties in the short-run, but reliably destroys entire sococultures in the long-run.
  • Liberal philosophy, like communist philosophy, believes that only “superior” leaders (i.e., a liberal ruling class) can effectively plan and execute environmental, social, and other cultural outcomes. They believe that they can shape the will and motivations of the population in ways superior to spontaneous social and free market economic forces. They are pathologically narcissistic in their beliefs of personal and group superiority and they are sociopathic in their willingness to lie, cheat, steal and propagandize in an attempt to achieve their goals.

Why Americans Should Hate Liberalism #3

Why Americans Should Hate Liberalism #3

The following is a direct quote from Dr. Michael G. Martin’s book: Liberalism: The Demise of America .

Not only will it be well worth your time to read and think about these two paragraphs: It is your patriotic duty to do so.

America’s future hangs in the balance of a general understanding of the following  perceptions of reality.

Quote:

Liberals want to change society so that there are no longer losers, malcontents, or the irresponsible. It is strange that the policies they tout involve perverse incentives, so these bad behaviors are actually promoted and incentivized. This applies to drug addiction, hard work, sexual responsibility, and the like. Liberals think compassion will change everything. They believe people are malleable and plastic, susceptible to change—but even if this were true, it must be accomplished though the proper incentives and social and economic context. They appear to be behaviorists, but yet they are employing perverse incentives to get change. This is a puzzle that defies comprehension.

It’s interesting that liberals believe they can change society and the nature of individuals when they don’t believe in individual responsibility or accountability for individuals. They see the life of the individual as being largely deterministic. That is to say, their behavior is shaped by social and environmental forces beyond their control. If an individual can’t affect his own life, how can liberals argue that they can change the nature of society and individuals? On the scale of the collective, then, they are basically acknowledging that they escape the thrall of determinism.

Perhaps the explanation is that they believe the common man is too stupid to affect his life, but that the elite—the smart people—can basically re-engineer not only themselves, the society, and the very nature of human beings themselves. Liberals are saying in effect, then, that the common man—really the stupid people—is totally malleable. He can be made into anything the liberal elite want, good or bad. There are strong assumptions here about not only human nature, but the influence of other unseen and not-understood forces that shape human behavior, as well as the ability of the liberal elite to engineer the wrenching change that they desire.

Kindle pages 261 and 262.

End Quote:

I am a behavioral psychologist and a great admirer of B. F. Skinner, perhaps the greatest psychologist of the 20th century.

Skinner and other behaviorists rightfully ascribe great power to the environment to shape the behavior patterns of humans and other animals. Furthermore, Skinner, as well as many behaviorists acknowledge the strength of genetic determinants upon human psychological adaptations as they interact and are influenced, in very complex ways, by a plethora of environmental influences.

It is important for Americans to understand that is no “free will”, in the sense that humans are totally free from genetic and environmental influences.

No population can escape the influences of their genetics, social and physical environments. The best that can be done, in my judgment, is to educate citizens about the scientific principles of these influences and also teach them to come under the control of the imperatives of survival for their own society, their own loved ones who will outlive them and their loved-ones who are yet to be born.

This bright future will require that Americans relearn the advantages of forsaking immediate gratifications in favor of highly beneficial long-term outcomes. It will also require that we again venerate and teach the compliance with rules of living and conduct that insure such future benefits.

My reading of American and World History has led me to conclude that the “Wisdom of the Ages” resides in the Judeo/Christian precepts and values for personal conduct that once helped make America great. The same can be said of other compatible religions of the world.

The teaching of, and compliance to, these precious guides for life are powerfully augmented when a society encourages the belief in a Higher Power than that of the self-destructive philosophy of secular humanism which forms the basis of liberalism,  progressivism, socialism and communism.

Only then we can we hope that our Constitutional Republic might endure thorough our representative democratic political process and citizen voter counter-controls on governmental actions.

Why Americans Should Hate Liberalism #2

One of the prime targets for liberalism’s conquest of America has been our institutions of education.

In this way Liberalism captures our youth, often shackles them to debt and governmental dependency, and/or forces unsuspecting parents and tax payers to cover the increasingly absorbent costs for an “education”.

The word education is in quotations because, what passes for education, is too often less a real education and more a liberal/Marxist propaganda machine.

Perhaps you have been astonished by very bright college educated youth who sanctimoniously parrot liberal philosophy, without any historical understanding of the real-world failed performances of these ideas and cultural designs.

A term for such propaganda outcomes, used to describe Korean concentration camp “re-educational” methods, was “brain washing”.

I urge parents to choose their children’s educational programs with very great care, from start to finish.

Please see the following for George Will’s very clear and factual expose’ of the propaganda camps that many  of America’s Colleges and Universities have become.

Why Americans Should Hate Liberalism

August 12, 2016

As we approach the 2016 Presidential election in America, I will reblog a series that I hope will clarify why America should vote against liberals in this, and all other elections.

Cultural Survival Skills

Why Americans Should Hate Liberalism #1

I am reading the following massively informative and well-documented book by Michael G. Martin, Ph.D.. Dr. Martin is an International Economist who has visited over 100 different Nations.

I cannot recommend his book highly enough to all Americans as we approach the 2016 Presidential Election: An election upon which the very life of America’s Constitutional Republic may hinge.

Liberalism: The Demise of America (2013), Michael G. Martin, Ph.D.

The following main points are paraphrased from Dr. Martin’s Prologue.

  • America’s Founding Fathers drafted our Constitution to maximize liberty from governmental control. The idea was for citizens to manage their government and to be free of the tyranny of habitually increasing power and dominance inherent in all levels of government.
  • America’s War of Independents, the Civil War, WWI and WWII were fought to preserve our independence from governmental dictators and the controls they impose upon citizens…

Progressives, Radical Liberals, Socialists, Anarchists, Race-Baiters: Look-Out for Ben Shapiro!

Progressives, Radical Liberals, Socialists, Anarchists, Race-Baiters: Look-Out for Ben Shapiro!

OK, I will admit it: This title is a little too long.

On the other-hand, it says everything that needs to be said by me.

So, fasten your seat belts and meet Mr. Ben Shapiro.

Now you will understand why he has been banned from speaking at some liberal colleges. Colleges that once upon a time really believed in intellectual freedom, rather than intellectual indoctrination and cognitive slavery.

This is a very important video having to do with the “Black Lives Matter” riots. Please see the truth here and send this blog to everyone you know.

Hillary: A Pathological Liar

August 8, 2016

Hillary: A Pathological Liar

Not only will Hillary double-down on Obama’s failed policies, she will double-down on his scurrilous lies and deceptions to America and the world.

Wake-Up America!

Everyone should know that TRUST is essential to all healthy and sustainable human relationships. Judeo/Christian principles tell us that “Though shall not bear false witness against your neighbor”, or more colloquially, “Though Shall Not Lie”.

Lying is a Sin for good reasons.

Not only do lies break God’s rules of conduct, lying reliably destroys civil relationships in love, business and virtually all other  good and useful social/civil relationships.

Chronic Lies and deceptions by leaders within societies not only promote distrust of those in leadership, they erode the legitimacy of the government. Lying leaders serve as powerful models for citizens and future leaders to imitate. After a few generations of such behavior among governmental officials, citizens become so used to lies and deceptions from their representatives that they accept “it is all part of the game” and simply vote for whoever they think will favor them with the most free stuff in the short-run…Never-mind the long-run!

When the takers and those who have become disaffected and abandoned the democratic process outnumber the makers; the party of scoundrels, liars, cheats, and all-around flim-flamers will prevail!

Of course this is the modern Democratic Party, now turned progressives and socialist revolutionary’s, now backed by the American Communist party.

http://www.wnd.com/2016/08/communist-party-unites-behind-hillary/

This truth is plain to see and citizens can observe these causes and effects everywhere, if they will only choose to look.

Eight years of Lying Obama and his unprincipled minions have brought America to the brink of disaster.

Four or eight more years of Lying Hillary and her cronies will destroy us.

Please see the following video and send it to everyone you know.

Trump vs. Hillary: How To Decide?!

August 6, 2016

Trump vs. Hillary: How To Decide!?

This is actually not such a hard decision after-all. 

All one needs do is consider the personalities involved and focus upon their proposals. This is the only approach that will enhance the possibility that America can begin to reverse its rate of cultural, economic and international decline.

Blindly following your traditional party affiliation will likely doom your homeland to further decline.

Many see Hillary as a narcissistic lying sociopath. Many see Trump the same way.  

It is an undeniable fact that Hillary has a long well-documented record of baldfaced lies about almost anything and everything. If you don’t believe me, just read (or see the movie) entitled “Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party”, by Dinesh D’Souza.

The documentation of Hillary’s amazing history of  continuous lies, deceit and abuse of people and power is undeniable. There are degrees of sociopathy and from all that I can tell she is at the top of the class of high-level functioning sociopaths (perhaps comparable to Bernie Madoff, the convicted investment advisor, or her devious and sexually predatory husband, Bill Clinton).

Without a doubt, Trump shows all of the signs of being a narcissist. Of course, there are degrees of this personality problem as well, the worse leaving the afflicted individual incapable of sustaining relationships with intimate others. Clearly, Trump does not display this level of incapacitation. He has sustained many friendships, many speak of his kindness and thoughtfulness to others, and he has raised children who appear to be outstanding citizens.

Clearly, he has a stunning level of self-confidence and he is always willing to brag about his accomplishments. To many this tendency is excessive, offensive, off-putting…and even nauseating!

Yet, with a few failures in his life noted, he ultimately remains a paragon of success at achieving his goals.

What are his goals?

  • Achieving great economic success
  • Building major material projects on time and under budget
  • Consulting with, and quickly learning from experts, all that is needed to achieve his goals
  • Selecting highly successful managers, without regard to sex, race or creed. Skill and promise are his only criteria.
  • Negotiating tough deals with tough competitors that favor his own interests (Soon to be America’s interests)
  • Charming people and maintaining long-term productive relationships
  • Supporting an extensive, close and loving family
  • Teaching his children to conduct themselves and their business enterprises in ways that consistently lead to success
  • Massively contributing to the economic and material success of the American economy and physical environment

With these things considered, it is time for the “final analysis”!

If Hillary Clinton is elected and achieves only one-third of what she promises (raising taxes and doubling-down on Obama’s Transformation of America to Socialism) she will all but destroy our once Great America.

If Donald Trump is elected and achieves one-third of what he promises, he will begin a dramatic American recovery from the brink of our steep decline into the world history of failed great societies.

This election may be our Nation’s most fateful one and we are in the greatest danger ever in our very short history.

We may long for better candidates, but there are only two that could possibly win the Presidency.

A vote for Hillary Clinton is a vote against America and for the socialism’s of Europe, Venezuela, and Brazil, etc.

Failing to vote, at all, is a vote for Hillary Clinton.

A vote for Trump is a vote for saving America and improving the lives of all of its citizens.

For American Patriots, this decision should not be a difficult one.

Vote for Donald Trump!

“10 Reasons Why Hillary Should Not be President”

August 3, 2016

“10 Reasons Why Hillary Should Not be President”

Few people know Hillary Clinton better than her former advisor, Dick Morris. He will now tell you ten reasons she should never be President. These reasons should be obvious to any one who has done their homework, but doing our homework is time-consuming and it is a very busy life for most of us.

I have studied Hillary’s history and her flawed personality for many years and I know what follows is true.  However, Dick Morris has been within Hillary and Bill Clinton’s’ inner-circle of advisors and he is an expert on both of their personalities and behavior patterns.

Immediately following eight years of Obama’s disastrous progressive policies, Hillary’s own similar, but intensified, policies will destroy the last vestiges of our once Great America!

Please take time to evaluate the 10 major points against a Hillary Clinton Presidency, send this blog to everyone you know and then vote accordingly.

Black Fathers Matter: Metacontingencies of Reinforcement Matter More!

August 2, 2016

Black Fathers Matter: Metacontingencies of Reinforcement Matter More!

I have stepped away from my blog for a short time to have a knee replaced. It is still uncomfortable for me to sit at my computer for very long.

Fortunately retired Navy Chief, Lee Hornack, has sent me an important video that I can quickly post for you to see.

This must-see video documents the political/social welfare causes of our damaged American Black families and black men.

Please do not think that what has damaged Black families has not also damaged families of all of America’s ethnic groups.

In fact, bad “contingencies of reinforcement” (i.e., what behaviors are rewarded) damage all humans that come into contact with them.

A metacontingency is what the government (not Mom or Dad) rewards. Governmental reward systems for irresponsible work and family behaviors are destroying Black families and to a lesser, yet very important degree, all American families.

These damaging metacontingencies are central to socialist/progressive/communist cultural designs. They fail wherever they are installed and they are predictably failing in America.

Bad contingencies of reinforcement always produce bad behavior. They damage our behavior at family, community, state, and federal levels. Similar bad contingencies will also fail at “World Government” levels, increasingly propose by radical liberals.

The Science of Psychology has reliably predicted this and world history continues to confirm these predictions.

See for yourself.
