‘What Good Is The Scheming, The Planning, And Dreaming…’

13 April 2015 @ 19:16

…That comes with each new love affair
The dreams that we cherish, so often might perish
And leaves you with castles in air…

Over at Protein Wisdom, in a post by Darleen Click, there’s been a bit of a debate going on in the Comments section as to whether Leftists think in the long-term.

A few highlights…

McGehee:

I’m not sure I would say the [Alinskyites] think long-term, since I consider thought to encompass not only strategy and tactics, but also goals.

And their goals are intellectually unexamined except by their opponents.

Sdferr:

I guess I’d disagree about their own consideration of their goals. I of course don’t agree with their goals, but I do think they think long term about those, if yet mistakenly. What I see on the ground in the Middle-East, for instance, which everyone (normal) seems to mistake for incompetence is in my opinion of the ClownDeceptor’s opinion what is actually the goal, and he things this is good. We don’t, obviously. Ordinary folk think his aims are evil. And then ordinary folk stop thinking, and attribute his aims to incompetence. Un-uh.

Please do take the time to read all the back-and-forth here [rare is it that the commentators over at PW are dull].

They’re both right to some extent…

The Leftist Masterminds think long-term.

The Leftist Apparatchiks think they think long-term.

The Leftist Fellow Travellers dream long-term.

The Leftist Dupes don’t even consider long-term.

Welcome To The Left In America!

If they ever wake-up and smell the Reality, it will be probably too late by then for them to stop the conflagration they set to burning.

Watching my dreams turn to ashes
And my hopes turn to bits of clay
Once I could see
Once I could feel
Now I am numb
I’ve become unreal
I walk the night without a goal
Stripped of my heart and my soul
What now my love, now that it’s over
I feel the world falling all around me

    The Lefties dream of power: its acquisition, its wielding, its protection.
    Everything else is detail.

      For a great many of the left the ”means are the ends”.

    VDH: Obama and Revolutionary Romance

    Hanson more or less makes the case I would make, albeit he’s far more elegant a writer.

      Good take by VDH. I’m glad to see that he’s really starting to get it – starting.

    Yep. I’d add to his summation that if we recall Putin’s lament some years ago that the fall of the Soviet Union was the greatest political catastrophe of the 20th century, in my estimation ClownDisaster would be right there agreeing with him. Hanson doesn’t go that far, but he may one day. That is, he may have no other choice.
