Without question, especially after Thanksgiving dinner with family members, some that you may only see a few times a year, politics is always that unsatisfied topic that burns in the back of all our minds. We have been taught that we shouldn’t talk about politics or religion even though both dominate our lives and thoughts almost exclusively. And the losers who spread that bad advice to us were liberals who encouraged us to avoid a conflict at the dinner table or living rooms of our homes from people who may be liberal in our lives. So in the same fashion that we see prosecutorial misconduct among liberal prosecutors or religious ideologies, like “climate change” coming at us with blinding speed, we are not supposed to engage it or talk about it. Instead, we are supposed to talk about Blue Pill stuff like sports or Black Friday sales and hope to avoid talking about supply chain problems caused by an illegal president Biden with a big-government approach that has crippled our economy and put China on a pedestal for world domination. So in that way, we never talk about the solution to the world’s real problems; we just learn to put up with it, which has empowered them into all sorts of destructive behavior. Yet, there is a reason we are uncomfortable with these political rules of our day because the rules themselves mask something we all know and feel about the matter, which demands a resolution. And it all points back to what I always say about liberalism; it’s a mental illness that needs a psychological fix, not an understanding of fairness on the battlefield of ideas. Liberalism, because of its severe disfunction in nature, shouldn’t even be on the battlefield.
One thing that all liberals have in common is that they like to boss people around. We obviously have seen this with Covid and the government’s reaction to it. Blue state governors have been the worst, and those who want to tell people what to do have heard the dog whistle. They have acted like that big brother who is babysitting all of us and wants to essentially be the parent out of control with power telling us where to go, when to wash our hands, when to go to bed, when to eat, change clothes, even what to watch on television. They are obsessed with telling us what to do about everything. And now that they have captured through all types of political theater, they have the congress, the senate, and the White House at the federal level; they are out of control. It’s not that the power went to their heads; it’s that they needed power so much that they were willing to do anything to get it.
Another thing I say all the time is that the number one thing that people are most concerned with in life is their status on the pecking order with their peers. Adults, more than anything, want to climb the social ladder of power and prestige among their peers more to satisfy their insecurities about their meaning of life-based on how it was taught to them as children. You’re born, you do what your parents tell you, what society tells you, and you gain power so that you can acquire the ability to do that eventually to other members of society. If you work hard, you might become a powerful politician or CEO of some company, and people will respect you and do what you tell them. Really, when it comes down to it, liberalism, in varying degrees, is one of the most destructive elements of any society, and it can be measured based on how much people want to boss you around. The more conservative a person truly is, the less they like to tell other people what to do. The more liberal, the more they want to boss people around.
But it doesn’t stop in politics such as “elected office.” Still, it extends into every aspect of our lives, such as the nosy neighbor who is always calling the neighborhood association about some flag you might be flying that might bring down property values. Or the slow person in the fast lane on the highway who travels under the speed limit because they intend to slow you down for what they perceive as safe conduct. We see it with the mask police now in stores. We see it in the places we work where some ladder climber boss is always there to tell us when to use the restroom or take a break. It’s not enough to call someone who thinks they are conservative a RINO if they claim to be Republicans but have the psychological problem of always wanting to tell people what to do all the time. We have to identify the mental illness for what it is, some form of liberalism that has migrated in name to the current state of severe mental dysfunction.
The real quandary for many of these people and why their psychological disorder is so destructive to the world around them is that the essence of their behavior is that they must live off the efforts of others. That is why they want to boss people around because they actually need the efforts of others to survive. After all, deep inside, they lack the courage to do things on their own. So they make themselves part of the world around them as a figure of authority to mask their own timidity. And if they appear to be in charge of the pecking orders of our existence, they can hide their most profound insecurities. So when we find ourselves at some social gathering and there are always these micromanagement types who start telling us we have to take our shoes off to enter a room, or to tell us where to sit, what to eat, how to dress, and so on, avoiding talking about politics only makes the problem worse. It allows these loser people to live free of judgment while abusing the world with their psychological disorders. By avoiding discussion about their ailment, it never gets fixed, which isn’t good for anybody. One of the reasons I wrote The Gunfighter’s Guide to Business was to help people deal with the tyrants in their lives. It may not be Joe Biden or Nancy Pelosi who are the worst; it might be some nosy aunt or peeping neighbor going through your trash. It might be a boss who goes out of their way to harass you so they can remind you that they are your means to a living, and you have to do what they say. It might be the little Cartman mall cop or the latest local health department newly empowered by the CDC to ruin our lives in their effort to tell more people what to do. But what it all amounts to is that the desire to boss people around is an illness of the mind, not something that should be respected or even dealt with as a legitimate manner of public conduct. We don’t need to treat liberals with equality and understanding. We need to get them help in insane asylums because that’s where they belong. Not believing they are equal or above us on some invisible pecking order. They are not our “betters.” They are malcontents and damaged people who need treatment, not a pass of the gravy and a tight lip uttered under sports scores.
