Jason Paluch's "Liberalism and Leftism"

Michael Lumish

The shifting meaning of words is key to understanding political sensibilities.

In this piece, written for
Karen Lehrman Bloch
's White Rose Magazine, Jason Paluch outlines the essential differences between "Liberalism" and "Leftism."
This is something that has stuck in my craw for years.
Liberalism is about the political tradition, grounded in the European Enlightenment, that values the freedom of the individual and that probably reached its height with Martin Luther King, Jr. and the Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s and 1960s.
Paluch concludes:
"Liberals adhere to the idea that people have a right to freely live their lives in any way they see fit as long as their choices and actions do not prevent others from doing the same. Leftists believe they have a right to dictate to others how they must live and what they should believe. The difference could not be more clear."

The Road To Hell

Doodad

I know I'm going to Hell. Found myself dreaming I was playing with Mr Potato Head while reading Dr Seuss and drinking Coca Cola. The good part is, there is no polar vortex in Hell, so.....

The Muzzle-Mask, whatever its medical utility, is a symbol of submission

Michael Lumish

It is the most outward sign of the Covid Regime.

It represents a submissive willingness to go along with the Lockdowns and all that entails.

It means being OK with governmentally-created increases in homicide, suicide, poverty, homelessness, the death of small businesses and restaurants, old people dying alone, divorce, domestic violence, alcoholism, drug-abuse, looting, and rioting in the streets in the name of "social justice."

When you voted for President Joe Biden that is what you voted for.

The muzzle-mask is not merely an inconvenience.

It is a symbol of submission.

My intention is to ditch my mask shortly.

It's been a whole year, for chrissake, and that is enough.

We all recognize that Covid is real, but we also recognize that it is a political system of control with heinous social consequences.

I will put on a muzzle if I must go into a store that requires one, but that is it.

On the street, I will not wear one.

I will maintain social distancing from people, you can be sure, but if you live in fear then you should stay the hell away from me.
