Topic category: Capitalism & Liberty vs. Marxism & Slavery
Are Leftists (Liberals/Progressives/Marxists) Insane? You be the judge.
Look at the record of the Left over the past 100 years. Search diligently for any successful adherence to its deeply-flawed philosophy. You will not find a single example. The response of the Left to Islamic Fundamentalism and its jihad against Western Civilization (a common enemy of the Left) exposes the Left for what it is. Insane.
Why does the Left promote a politically-correct view of Muslims and their "Religion of Peace”.
When Muslim men are instructed by the Qur’an (Koran) and Sharia law in the name of Allah to:
Kill their sisters, wives and daughters for family “Honor";
Riot and kill over any slight offense against Muhammed;
Murder Christians and Jews for the simple offense of not being "believers";
Burn schools for girls because women are considered property;
Stone teenage rape victims to death for "adultery";
Mutilate little girls' genitalia;
Teach their children to behead non-Muslim children;
Commit barbarous acts of terrorism (jihad) against all “non-believers”;
Have children for the sole purpose of using them as suicide bombers to kill “non-believers”.
What perversion of the word “peace” would condone such barbarity in the name of religion?
Why does the Liberal/Progressive/Marxist Left condone such atrocities by promoting a politically-correct censorship of those who speak out against this Muslim jihad?
Answer: Because the Liberal/Progressive/Marxist Left is atheist and harbors a deeply-ingrained hatred for Western civilization that is based on Judeo-Christian values.
Just as did national socialist Hitler have a cozy relationship with Muslim Imams, the Left sees an ally in the Islamic fundamentalist jihad against Judaism and religious-based Western civilization, their common enemy.
Should Muslim hordes succeed with their jihad against Western civilization, the Left will be their next target to be quickly consumed.
Groupthink Leftists are in a state of denial over their affliction.
Because to be a Leftist (Liberal/Progressive/Marxist) is to be insane (“a state of mind that prevents normal perception, behavior, or social interaction”). Consequently, it is impossible for a Leftist to acknowledge reality. They must operate on their faith in a perverted and deeply-flawed political philosophy. How few Leftists realize that Leftism is faith-based!
How else does one explain a movement that continues to try the same political solutions that throughout history have failed miserably?
Consider our public and private university professors who brainwash and exhort young students to follow the utterly failed philosophy of Karl Marx.
Do they mention to their students that Karl Marx was a lazy sloth of a man who was entirely dependent for his sustenance on the financial support of his friend, Friedrich Engels?
Do they mention that Marx was too lazy and insolent to hold a job (considering such activity beneath him)?
Do they mention Marx was quite content to live out his self-centered life in a London slum with his servant-wife and children while busy instructing the rest of humanity how best to live their lives?
No sane person would ever follow the advice of such a man, particularly when his teachings have failed so miserably whenever tried.
Yet, the Liberal/Progressive Left is enamored with Marxism.
Based on the evidence, it is fair to conclude that Leftists are insane.

Biography - Bob Webster
Bob Webster, a 12th-generation descendent of both the Darte family (Connecticut, 1630s) and the Webster family (Massachusetts, 1630s) is a descendant of Daniel Webster's father, Revolutionary War patriot Ebenezer Webster, who served with General Washington. Bob has always had a strong interest in early American history, our Constitution, U.S. politics, and law. Politically he is a constitutional republican with objectivist and libertarian roots. He has faith in the ultimate triumph of truth and reason over deception and emotion. He is a strong believer in our Constitution as written and views the abandonment of constitutional restraint by the regressive Progressive movement as a great danger to our Republic. His favorite novel is Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand and believes it should be required reading for all high school students so they can appreciate the cost of tolerating the growth of unconstitutional crushingly powerful central government. He strongly believes, as our Constitution enshrines, that the interests of the individual should be held superior to the interests of the state.
A lifelong interest in meteorology and climatology spurred his strong interest in science. Bob earned his degree in Mathematics at Virginia Tech, graduating in 1964.
