    In my part of the world the socialists use use guilt and the word fairness as tools-"You grew up with all the privilege and opportunities and it is therefore not fair that we right the wrongs of the past by making you pay."-For example Should everybody not be entitled to and receive a free university education. Using free education as their springboard and not so much climate change/any of the other issues currently.

    There is always veiled threats and promises that accompanies these arguments. That if you simply give us what we want we will go away, you will be able to go about your day in piece, but more importantly your children`s education will not be interrupted-U.S. Youth Climate Strike in March.

    They also use words extremely well as weapons to hide there intentions. Making their arguments seem reasonable and some of their actions even justifiable under the circumstances.

    Although like I mentioned climate change not being a big enough issue yet I recognize the tactics. People giving way/losing ground to an issue and then believing that the left will now be satisfied having reached their goal and will now go away. When it is in actual fact only the first step or steps as part of a long campaign to reach their ultimate goal-Chakrabari`s question to Sam Ricketts.

    The evidence from similar spats in other states suggests that government officials are once again poised to have their impotence demonstrated by people eager to disobey dictates from above.

    QUOTE=Steven Spaugh;1940737]Very timely. I just watched, "The Enemies Within", on Amazon Prime. The following is the description from Amazon Prime.

    "The Enemies Within" profiles twenty Senators and more than eighty Representatives. Their ties to Communist Party USA, Muslim Brotherhood, Democratic Socialists of America, Workers World Party, the Institute for Policy Studies,Council for a Livable World and other radical anti-American organizations.

    Thank you for recommending this documentary. It is excellent, and highlights the level of socialism, Marxism, and Islamic influence in the past and current Democratic party, including Obama.

    There is a segment of useful idiots on the American left that is itching for a Pol Pot figure to come lead them to revolutionary victory.

    Found this Peterson quote today:

    “And if you think tough men are dangerous, wait until you see what weak men are capable of.”
    ― Jordan B. Peterson


    Remember brothers, it wasn't the tough men that killed 100,000,000 people in the 20th century.
    "If you believe what you like in the gospels, and reject what you don't like, it is not the gospel you believe, but yourself." ó Augustine

    "That upon which you set your heart and put your trust is your god." ó Martin Luther

    Recommend reading French economist Frederic Bastiat's "The Law" (linked below). Written in the late 1840s, Bastiat outlines the liberty/free market vs socialism debate. Its been a long time since I read it but remember it being a fantastic and clear book. The basic premise is that socialism uses the force of law to compel people to involuntarily work together toward a socialist utopia.

    A quote from The Law "Socialism, like the ancient ideas from which it springs, confuses the distinction between government and society. As a result of this, every time we object to a thing being done by government, the socialists conclude that we object to its being done at all. We disapprove of state education. Then the socialists say that we are opposed to any education. We object to a state religion. Then the socialists say that we want no religion at all. We object to a state-enforced equality. Then they say that we are against equality. And so on, and so on. It is as if the socialists were to accuse us of not wanting persons to eat because we do not want the state to raise grain."

    What a great resource! From the linked Wikipedia bio:

    Bastiat posits that the law becomes perverted when it punishes one's right to self-defense (of his life, liberty and property) in favor of another's right to legalized plunder which he defines as "if the law takes from some persons what belongs to them, and gives it to other persons to whom it does not belong.
    Thanks, Bladedoc!
