….Liberalism. Systemic liberalism is now the greatest threat to America. Modern liberalism, has evolved since the 1960s into a quest for equality, government dependency, irresponsible financial policies and above all, a violation of individual rights. The woke crowd rails against systemic racism which is a myth since regional legal discrimination based upon race was vanquished by 1965. In fact, the U.S. in 2021 is largely controlled by liberals through most institutions of government and social control. Let’s examine.
Movies and television are dominated by avowed liberals who overtly push their views and policy goals on their audience. From casting, character portrayal, story line, product placement and of course, advertisements; most television shows force a liberal view on those who choose to watch. Professional sports have been almost universally focused on race issues, alienating many viewers but continuing full steam ahead in the quest to normalize what were formerly extreme views. Print and online media are even more overrun by a mass message of liberal views.
Our nation’s education systems, both K-12 and college are extremely liberal with daily focus on social reconstruction and not education of traditional subject matter as the priority. Very few public schools and some private schools have preserved the traditions of schooling while only religious schools have done so at the college level.
Most medical boards and public health officials have followed suit and have blurred the traditional lines of medical wisdom and public policy. We only have to look at covid restrictions, to see the enormous power these traditionally non-partisan positions now wield.
Social media, entertainment providers and many corporate entities have all joined the movement peddling social justice and equity issues. There is one area where hope still exists. One of the only institutions not majority-controlled by liberals is the American state government.
With more Republicans in control of state legislatures and governorships, there is hope that traditional American values and policies can be preserved and restored elsewhere pending future elections.
WHAT IS LIBERALISM?
Dictionary.com defines it as “a political or social philosophy advocating the freedom of the individual, parliamentary systems of government, nonviolent modification of political, social, or economic institutions to assure unrestricted development in all spheres of human endeavor, and governmental guarantees of individual rights and civil liberties.”
Ironically, the freedom of all is not sought, as economic plans aim to unseat traditional, free-enterprise capitalism, tax success and expand entitlements without regard to citizenship or cost. Individual rights and liberties are seen as expendable in order to promote the common good and create a safer, more equitable society without suffering, hardship or risk. Modern liberalism is not emblematic of it’s definition as “leftism” is much more radical.
