The Trouble With The Left

I've been sniping at the right for some time. Let's see what's wrong
with the left.

Firstly, they, like the right, tend to think in patterns and according
to blind "principles" that are misapplied and do systematic thinking
that ends up with a house of cards that would easily topple at a

The push can be, check the facts on something, or, check the
motives, or, check the unexamined premises, or, the non
sequitur (it does not follow).

Secondly, they apply principles like equal rights or freedom
but reject morality when it conflicts. (the right does the same in
somewhat different ways, pretending to be preserving morality
or something.)

For instance, there is NO logical connection between freedom
of multi partner heterosexual immorality promiscuity that
is so fast in its change of partners, that unlike prolonged living
together committed relationships, it doesn't even mimic marriage,
and freedom of women from oppression.

The destruction of the double standard does NOT require
legitimizing casual unchastity by women. It merely needs to
ILLEGITIMIZE and prohibit and make sanctions against
casual unchastity by men.

Freedom of abortion is another irrelevance.

The original feminists were, for the most part, against
abortion, against immorality and perversion, and though they
might entertain illusions about "woman's" superior nature,
they tended to promote women catching up to men in sports,
clothing, politics, economics and business, etc. The pro
abortion and "free love" element were a minority.

Equality of the sexes got a big push in the USA, when women
in the abolitionist movement noticed that while equality was
pushed for all men regardless of color, the feeling and practice
was not the same for women, despite the fact that the same
lack of ingrained moral and mental differences worth arguing
about held for races as for sexes.

Even if you argue there are serious differences, the fact remains
that individuals who do NOT fit this, a lot of them, exist, and to
be fair all should compete, regardless of race or sex, on an equal
playing field.  There should be no restrictions, in fairness to those
who were the exceptions, especially since those exceptions
radically increased in numbers when educated and raised
differently from the way those who fit the stereotypes were
usually raised.

Homosexual activity is another absurdity. Even if you argue there
is sometimes a biological basis, after all, hermaphrodites on rare
occasions exist, the vast majority DO NOT LOOK LIKE THEY

The genetic origins theory is very, very weak, and more likely
points to a gene or genes for instability of some sort, that might
manifest in different ways in different individuals, with different
upbringing. Some would go bonkers in a sexual way, others in
a non sexual way.

But even if the genetic origin were proven, that only means it
is one more abnormality in genes, like any other inherited

The desires and predilection may or may not be innate.

not a necessity.

The tendency to convert freedom from government mandating
of religious organizations to an inherent equality in truth of all
religions, denial that any might be closer to the truth than others,
soon works out as denial that there is any truth.

The failure of the left to give Christianity the credit it deserves
for things the liberals and left take for granted in values and
practices they support, and general gullibility, is as bad as the
right's failure to deal with history or legal issues or whatever,
the more anarchistic the rightist the more so. the right often
tries to harness Christianity to support purposes, that at
times churches may have supported, but did so in violation
of teachings from The Bible and the early church fathers.

The left, in the person of Mae Brussell, was the first to notice
the big picture around the JFK assassination, and pursue this
research. But while Alex Constantine is pretty good, he is
compromised by his pro rock and role bias, into thinking the
parapolitical evil government conspiracy was against rockers,
even secretly murdering them, when more likely the rock and
drug scene was partly due to some government and other
rogue games in social programming.

For instance, whether the cause is human deliberate arrangement,
or paranormal, or a bit of both, Dave McGowan shows there
are some striking coincidences beyond belief, in the development
of the rock and flower children subculture.  And it would make
sense as an effort to discredit, by association, the more
conservative type anti Viet Nam war people, by making it all
look like only something hippies would do.
