    Footprints in the Sand

    One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord.
    Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.
    In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand.
    Sometimes there were two sets of footprints,
    other times there was one only.
    This bothered me because I noticed that during the low periods of my life,
    when I was suffering from anguish,
    sorrow or defeat,
    I could see only one set of footprints,
    so I said to the Lord,
    “You promised me Lord,
    that if I followed you,
    you would walk with me always.
    But I have noticed that during the most trying periods of my life
    there has only been one set of footprints in the sand.
    Why, when I needed you most, have you not been there for me?”
    The Lord replied,
    “The years when you have seen only one set of footprints,
    my child, is when I carried you.”

    It is for the love of humanity that I am such an a-hole! Too much collectivism has been repeatedly proven to lead only to tyranny, torture and corruption in the worst extreme, and failing economies at least. Those who deny these provable facts (libs) are deluded and dangerous and must be stopped in their tracks. i've had enough, personally.

    Who is it that thinks your an a-hole? I didn't think that. I kinda tend to lean towards your side on things, even if I think your a little fruity! :p: j/k!

    Agreed. -We must remember though, that collectivism does not always invalidate ALL that holds the groups together, as some principles or facts may be true. It is difficult to keep that in mind when all the BS abounds.

    The other issue:

    Being non-colectivists and being in agreement makes us collectivists by nature of not being collectivists.

    The correct level of sociality vs individuality occurs naturally. We evolved as a fairly social and communal animal. And I'm happy to live in a society. But the lefties take it too far when they deny that people are, in fact, motivated primarily by self interest. Self interest in a cooperative context. Libs want to knock the sytem out of balance so they can seize control.

    Agreed. The big problem is that the human nature of the self interest when combined with the collectivism creates a level of corruption naturally occuring in the socialist liberal mentality and is actually present in nearly all large groups regardless of politics, just on different scales.

    The result of the complete evil of the socialistic tendencies of todays liberal politics has just been a festering self-contained ball of pus that hasn't done anything but sit and grow in the US becasue it has been allowed as a relevant viable political ideology while going against everything the Constitution stands for or represents.

    Therefore, it is simple human nature we fight. Politics and groups just put it under a magnifying glass.
