It Is S.A.D.: The Leftist Brain Exposed
their clear thinking. Democracy can be too fast. Conservatives want more deliberation
So far I have used the word Liberal, but I fear it is too broad. In these times being a
Liberal has lost definition.
Conservative has pretty much stayed the course. I now want to use the word Leftist.
Other writers have called them Statists, Socialist, or Communists. These are variations on
the same theme. Leftist are people who want one government, world government, one
justice system etc. They do not want the delay that debate provides. In fact they do not
want debate. They are so convinced they are correct that any opposing view should be
covered up like a cat finishing its morning constitutional. I once had a jass show on a
Public University FM station for some 16 years. I was in the eye of the storm. The station
was used as a Leftist gathering and information center. It was S.A.D. to see so many
people unwilling to debate. Being unwilling to debate simply means you no longer want
to think about the issue. It is settled.
Another aspect of the definition of Liberal and Conservative revolves around their job
choices. For example, Conservatives tend to select civilian solo type jobs and tough jobs
like the Military. In the Military they are the preferred volunteer. By this I mean, a job
where they have flexibility to go their own way. This is why so many private companies
are created by and headed up by Conservatives. In the construction world it is hard to
find a Leftist. Leftist are less independent and seek to join a group. For example, they like
teaching, governmental jobs, or in the civil world joining up with large companies which
function much like a governmental agency.
Let‘s look at choices between independent enterprise and governmental control. The
Conservative wants freedom in enterprise. That is why they call it Free Enterprise.
Liberals find such freedom worrisome. They prefer governmental control.
They believe a level playing field is more fair and easier to live with. They do not like
surprises. A good example would be the current health take over by President Obama and
the Socialist Pelosi and Reid (Both have admitted it at one time or another.) Religion or
the lack there of is another good example. Leftist are generally against classic religion.
This is so because they adamantly believe in Darwin‘s Theory (notice I say theory) of
evolution. Believing in God and evolution at the same time is tough on the mindset. Here
I am talking about those who think about politics and there are many who never go there.
I am certain you know of many who attend church simply because it is a thing to do and
an opportunity to say hello to neighbors. They may be liberal or Conservative, but they
are not really thinking about it. Most Conservatives believe in God. They may believe in
evolution as well, but they do not consider they are inconsistent. Any rational human
being, who has ever faced death---looked it in the eye and came through to live again,
believes in God. Why? Because in such a terrible time you need strength from without
your puny frame, and God fills that need. Conservatives generally are not picky in which
God. It is more of an acceptance of faith. A Leftist simply does not go there. Keep in
mind in all of this discussion there are many exceptions. We are talking general
overviews. A Leftist absolute acceptance that central power is benevolent is evidence of
blind faith. It is akin to Classic Religion. In fact secularism is a faith which is threatened
by an outer world God.
