Is Putin Right? Has Liberalism Lost the World?, by Pat Buchanan – The Unz Review

Tuesday, July 2, 2019

Why is liberalism failing? Several causes, said Putin. Among them, its failure to deal with the crisis of the age: mass and unchecked illegal migration. Putin praised Trump’s efforts to secure the U.S. border:

“This liberal idea has become obsolete. It has come into conflict with the interests of the overwhelming majority of the population. … This liberal idea presupposes that … migrants can kill, plunder and rape with impunity because their rights as migrants have to be protected.”

I like Pat on a “common sense” foreign and domestic policy.

I wonder if the “culture war” is lost?

Democrats are having a socialist moment, but it won’t last :: Jeff Jacoby

Tuesday, July 2, 2019

Socialism is profoundly at odds with the American experience, and always has been. The Mayflower passengers who settled in Plymouth sought to build a socialist society avant la lettre, one in which, as Governor William Bradford later recounted, there would be no private ownership of property and “all profits and benefits” were to be part of “the common stock.” The settlers wanted a system in which everyone would work for the common good, and there would be no inequality of wealth. What they got was a painful lesson in socialism’s failures, with rising levels of hunger, corruption, and persecution. Only after the colony reversed course in 1623 and established private property rights did its fortunes change for the better.

Every time “socialism” comes up, think “Mayflower Compact”!

Every time Communist Bernie Sanders or the other “Socialists” promise free stuff, think “North / South Korea”, “East / West Berlin”, “Venezuela”, or genocide!

Argh!
