I've come to realize that the Liberal mind is very ahead of its time.
Let me explain...
Imagine if you will a father and two sons.
The older child is talented, good looking, cool and popular, while the younger son is ugly, shy and made fun of.
Both children have the right to enjoy life, so why is only one of them successful, while the other one seems destined to a life of failure and shame?
Well, there are several avenues that can be taken with regard to the two children and the father.
Avenue #1: The father can let each child be. He can sit on the side and allow his children to grow as they are.
Older, cool brother has all the friends. He becomes Mr. popular, while his younger brother sits on the side sulking, suffering and growing more and more discontent with his unfair chunk of torment called life.
... This was what the world was like many years ago. The rich remained rich and prospered while the poor people were stuck being poor without anyone to care for them.
It was allowing the world to be as it is.
Avenue #2: The father educates his children to love each other. He explains to them how each one needs to look out for the other, how the younger brother also has a right to enjoy popularity and success. He spends time with his older son and gently encourages him to help out his other, less fortunate brother... Teach him how to be successful, make sure he has friends, involve him in your life and care for him.
With such a loving education and enriched life, the cool brother chooses to lovingly tend to his younger brother. He brings him along for parties with friends. He plays games with him, perhaps shows him how to hold a baseball bat and hit a home run. He tells all his friends how cool the younger brother is and protects him from bullies.
This was what the world was like at the beginning of democracy and liberalism.
When free trade and democratic rule created tremendous wealth and success, there came with it an understanding of helping others who were suffering.
The people of this successful society independently chose to give of their own fortune to those who were still suffering and in need of their help.
The rise of the perfect world and our future seemed bright.
But there is still the Avenue #3: The father is clearly aware and of the opinion that the younger son should not need to suffer, just because he was was born less gifted than the older child. So he begins forcing the older boy to care for the younger son. He puts his older boy down at every opportunity, chastising him for not being more involved with his brother's life.
He takes away the cool son's games and gives part of it to the younger son. He forces the older son to bring this loser along to his parties. Screaming that the older boy MUST help his younger brother!
The older brother may rebel, totally rejecting and ridiculing his younger sibling whenever their father is not looking. Inevitable jealousy will develop, from dad's loving attention always being directed towards the unsuccessful boy.
The older brother may stop going to parties altogether. He may begin to act less cool and become less popular with everyone, simply because he is tired of being pressured into a life that he doesn't necessarily agree with. In other words, being kind and charitable puts a very bad taste into the cool brother's conscience.
This is what our liberal world is slowly coming to.
When the less fortunate demand help from the successful!
When the rich people are 'forced' into helping others, it creates an implosion of the very success that is enjoyed.
When their wealth is forcefully removed from them and they are not accorded the proper respect and recognition of their hard work and effort to getting where they are, yet they are constantly characterized as greedy, only-lucky and evil millionaires who conspire to take over the world, then they develop a horrible attitude toward those who falsely accuse them as well as toward the poorer people who their money ends up helping.
And that is the problem with our society now.
Yes, the poor have a right to be helped.
Yes, all humans have equal rights.
Yes, rich people work hard to make their money and they show dedication to their careers more than the less fortunate people.
However, the rich cannot be forced to relinquish their fortune. It will only bring on destruction.
For a healthy society to grow, it needs to all begin with education.
People must be educated that we all have a right to equality and basic rights. However it must come from each and every individual's personal choice to help out his fellow. When the rich are granted respect and honor that they've worked so hard to deserve, along with the warm encouragement to help out the less fortunate, then they happily give.
The problem with liberalism nowadays is that they've idolized the poor and demoralized the rich.
And so it is... Liberals are forcing a Messianic age, when everyone will be helping everyone. But they are mistaken, because Messianic age is when people will choose to be good.
In addition, the liberals believe that everything is essentially good and can be changed and elevated in peaceful terms.
While in theory they are correct, in reality they are very, very wrong.
Our world was created with evils. Evils that are so bad, that they must be distanced and destroyed. This is both spiritually and physically as well.
Liberals will be against war in Iraq, Afghanistan and Iran. They will say that peaceful discussions with rogue nations and corrupt socialists will cause these evil people to mend their ways and become better people. "Innocent lives will be lost!" they claim.
Republicans will be for the war in Iraq, Afghanistan and Iran. They will say that we cannot afford peaceful discussions with rogue nations and corrupt socialists. We must kill them all and destroy the evil from within our midst. "It will ultimately save lives!" they claim.
The question is, who decides what is evil or not?
We need Moshiach...
The following video is what got me so mad about this whole thing!!
I believe that the students here did the right thing. It was wonderful of them to make a voice for these young and innocent Arab victims, who were murdered in their youth and not given a chance of life... However, I think that they protested their point at the wrong function. A very wrong function!! They should stand up and shown their anger and frustration when Hamas supporters come and speak in their school! They should shout their cries of injustice to the terrorists who put these innocent children in such compromising circumstances!! It is not the fault of the Israeli's for killing young children. It is the fault of careless and destructive terrorists who deliberately put these children in harms way.
These students are very sad victims of the terrorists political tact. The terrorists exploit our education system and the kind-hearted nature of Westernized children and young adults today. They show the kind world images of children dead, women suffering and children crying in pools of blood.
The soft hearts of these Westernized cultures melt at the scene and their minds lose focus on good and evil.
It is indeed a bitter exile.
