Progressive on progressive violence

Progressives are the stupidest people on the planet. They really are.

It's moderately funny to consider that around a year ago, the progressives of today were attacking Woodrow Wilson, and now we have the progressives out there attacking another historical progressive, Theodore Roosevelt. You seen this report? Activists splash red paint on Theodore Roosevelt statue on Museum of Natural History steps

Theodore Roosevelt is being attacked because he was white and because he was an imperialist. This is so incredibly dumb. Theodore Roosevelt was an open progressive. He was proud of social justice. These are not secrets, you can google them andsee the facts plainly. But today's street-level malcontents are so drunk on their own propaganda that they're going to give up the ship and they don't even realize it. The elites know better, but they think they've written so many fake history books that the truth can't ever possibly come out. They think they've got it on permanent lock. But the elites, the leaders of the movement, they are far and few in between.

I've never posted about this directly, because it's too big of a topic for me right now, I have to leave it for the future. But the fact remains, is that when progressives attack imperialism, they are in fact attacking themselves and their own foundation. Progressivism was born of many planks, and progressive ideology would not exist if not for imperialism. It's so important to their existence, that imperialism and the imperialist era.

Most conservatives don't realize this fact, but it will get more coverage at some point in the future. It's too important.

And Theodore Roosevelt is the key, because more than any other progressive of that era, he is the highest profile and most easy to identify imperialist-progressive. He ties the whole thing together. Yes, the imperialist era and the progressive era butt up against each other if you look at a calendar, but that's not superficial. They are deeply linked ideologically.

Just remember this: When progressives attack "imperialism", they are attacking themselves. But they always do it in a way to which they project it as America's fault. No no, don't ask about President Roosevelt, just say "America". Forget about Woodrow Wilson, just say "America". And who was the appointed governor of the Philippines, and who was the secretary of defense, and who was senate president, and who was this and who was that and the Generals and etc etc. These people were all progressives! But forget all that. Just say "America". That's how they get away with it.

And it's been one of their biggest master strokes. The progressive historians covered it up. And they got away with it. You want to expose a cover up, dig here. Dig right here.

But every now and then, someone makes a mistake. It's far and few in between, but it does happen. Whoopsie, got red paint on a progressive's whoops I mean an imperialist's WHOOPS!! I meant to say an American President's statue. Yeah, that's it. That's what it was. Gotta keep the narrative straight.

Did Jefferson believe that liberty had a nineteen year lifespan? Part 2

Many, many moons ago I wrote asking the question: "Did Jefferson believe that liberty had a nineteen year lifespan?"

Knowing more now than I knew then about Jefferson's own writings, the answer is clearly no. But I can point to it here instead of searching in vain for it. Jefferson did write to Madison that "No society can make a perpetual Constitution or even a perpetual law. The earth belongs always to the living generation." I had struggled with this, because I knew progressives were liars and were at times using this phrase in order to advance their narrative.

The problem is this: I separate the Constitution from our Rights as two distinct concepts or topics, and I have long believed that the Founders did the same. The Constitution's plain language makes it clear: This document is not the source of our rights, it merely acknowledges their existence while at the same time telling government that it shall not infringe upon them.

Now, Jefferson was fond of this statement of the earth belonging to the living. He also wrote it to another person, John Cartwright, and in this instance Jefferson was also more explicit. You see, the Founders, or at least Jefferson, did also separate our rights and our Constitution as two separate things just as I do. He wrote to Cartwright the same concept, that the earth belongs to the living, but he was also more explicit and he told Mr. Cartwright what does not belong to the living. He wrote:

Can one generation bind another, and all others, in succession for ever? I think not. the Creator has made the earth for the living, not the dead. rights and powers can only belong to persons, not to things, not to mere matter, unendowed with will. the dead are not even things. the particles of matter which composed their bodies, make part now of the bodies of other animals, vegetables, or minerals of a thousand forms. to what then are attached the rights and power they held while in the form of men? a generation may bind itself, as long as it’s majority continues in life; when that has disappeared, another majority is in place, holds all the rights and powers their predecessors once held and may change their laws and institutions to suit themselves. nothing then is unchangeable but the inherent and unalienable rights of man.

This was to John Cartwright, June 5th, 1824.

This is where the intense deception of progressives comes in. To progressives, they think that abolishing the Constitution means abolishing the first amendment(because they're tired of hearing the crazy things you have to say), abolishing the second amendment(because you shouldn't be allowed to defend yourself against progressivism), and etc etc etc. - AND! See, Thomas Jefferson agrees with us progressives! We should be abolishing your blasted constitution and all of its eternal principles in 19 years from now!

- except

That's not what Jefferson believed. He *only* meant to abolish the legal structures. The rock solid concrete foundation of God's gift of Liberty? - That is immutable and timeless. That has no 19 year or 39 year or 1426 year lifespan on it, according to Jefferson. Liberty is immortal. Liberty is forever. Liberty has more value than life itself.

You see, because our rights are a gift of God, they are not ours to abolish. We can only abolish what belongs to us, and Jefferson only wrote that the earth belongs to the living.

Ultimately, this exposes yet another lie that progressives tell. Progressives make it quite clear that these rights that we hold so dear are so inconvenient to their plans. But ironically enough, it is the progressives - not the Founding Fathers - who seek to bind future generations in their authoritarian schemes. When Government is put in control of every aspect of your life: your healthcare, trillions of dollars in debt, your education, your food, your housing, your entertainment(see Second Bill of Rights), etc - THAT is what binds future generations. Not God's gift of Liberty!

Everything about progressivism is bass ackward, and we see once again that what it is that they accuse others of doing is in reality what it is that they themselves are currently engaging in.

Are you hypnotized by the Constitution?

Progressives have a challenge for all of us conservatives, and they have had this challenge for over a century now. In his book Progressive Democracy, Herbert Croly wrote the following:
Whether conservatives like it or not, the foundations of the traditional system are being tested both by the strain of new social and economic condition and by a flood of suspicion and criticism. If it is going to survive, not only must its adaptability to new exigencies be proved, but also its power to survive the severest possible inquisition.

Public opinion can no longer be hypnotized and scared into accepting the traditional constitutionalism as the final word in politics. If it is successfully to defend its position, conservatism must itself become critical, aggressive, inquisitive and contemporary. The issue has been declared. A momentous discussion has been started. Whether the results of that discussion are beneficial or the reverse will depend chiefly upon the enterprise, the patience, the good humor and the insight with which it is carried on.

Patience is the key here. Even in the early 1900s, progressives were sick and tired of hearing about the Constitution. That's why their level of commitment is as high as it is, that it even spans multiple lifespans. If progressives cannot destroy the Constitution in their own lifespans, they will send out their children as soldiers to continue on the task.(Or indoctrinate our children in colleges to do it) Croly died in 1930, but do we really believe he wouldn't be happy with what is happening today? Of course he would be happy with it.

In order to achieve their purpose, the progressives will lie and cheat so as to foster undue suspicion and false criticism. We see it play out in real time with our own eyes. When facts don't match the progressive agenda? Erase them. When other facts are standing on shaky ground? Send out fake journalists or fake historians to write about it and give the scheme additional credibility. When the final inquisition comes, there won't be a shred of reality on part of the inquisitors, and it will not matter. They will have literally constructed a whole new reality for which all of us can live.

Welcome to the new book burning, where no fire is required. It has been said that the pen is mightier than the sword. That is true, and the indoctrinator is also more powerful than the arson.
