Constrained vs. Unconstrained

by

Some people object to me calling them Marxist, communist, socialist, progressive, liberal, statist, or whatever, when I consider their ideas to be completely interchangeable with any of the above. They simply don’t get that conservatism isn’t yet another -ism, but the anti-ism, the ultimate -ism, or the only true -ism, depending on how you see things.

Some people see my proposals to government as opposite to theirs, when in fact, it is a completely separate idea. They say one group of people should be in charge, I say no one should be in charge.

The fundamental difference between my political ideas and the ideas of the leftist is simply described by Bill Whittle in the video below. I believe that mankind is fundamentally flawed. I believe that only through the appropriate application of godly laws, ie, the Natural Law that governs all things, can we hope to achieve peace and prosperity. I believe the Natural Law dictates that all men have a right to life, liberty, and property, but those rights are finite. For instance, we will protect your right to life up until you start murdering others, in which case, we will end your life, etc…

Bill Whittle catalogs the history of this debate in modern times. (By modern, I mean since the 1700’s.) Note carefully how important it is that the people believe in the Christian God of justice and mercy, otherwise, they are lead away into the ultimate conceit that man is god.

If you’re one of those people who believes science is correct, then you should take a close look at the history of political thought, and choose the one which hasn’t been responsible for the slaughter of hundreds of millions of innocent people. Meaning, you should be a conservative.
