Get d'Clu

Get a clue & wake up! The best way to lead a nation astray of its values is to keep it ignorant of its history.

Call the Blue Dogs, Then Get a Good Read

 Mark Levin, if you don’t already know, is an extraordinary conservative commentator and constitutional lawyer and has served as a top advisor to several members of President Ronald Reagan’s Cabinet – including as Chief of Staff to the Attorney General of the United States (per his About page).  In other words, the guy has a brain a yard and a half wide, so you might wanna listen to what he says.  I’m looking forward to getting his latest book, Liberty and Tyranny: A Conservative Manifesto, which I just ordered from Amazon.  Yes, I know, I’m a bit slow on the uptake here, but I’ve always got about six to eight books open at once and had to finish out most of them in order to ‘clear the deck’ for this one.

In the meantime, the following bozos have vowed to vote against keeping health care for only citizens and forcovering everyone inside our borders, no matter what their status!

  1. Mark Levin is fundamentally a fire-breathing moron. Aside from that he’s an advocate of aristocracy. In his interview with Sean Hannity, he states that conservatives are the beneficiaries of thousands of years of human experience. He then refers to Obama and others as relying on philosophies a couple of hundred years old. That’s interesting considering that aside from the Ancient Greeks, Democracy as we know it is only as old as this country itself…approximately 218 years old. Those philosophies that preceded it were aristocratic, authoritarian, or theocratic. They were not democratic. They were exactly the philosophies that our founders rejected.

    Yesterday while in my car, Mr. Levin cited Frederich Hayek to illustrate a point to his doting audience as an authority figure to back up his tirade of the moment. (Conservatives love authority figures) The problem is that Hayek was not a conservative. In fact he wrote an essay titled “Why I am not a Conservative”. Apparently Levin hasn’t read it or if he has, he figures that you won’t. So he’s citing as an authority, a person that totally rejects his views.

    Judging from your resume’, I’m not likely to change your mind about anything. You are a “true believer”. Conservatism fits the personality of the true believer very neatly. Russell Kirk defined modern conservatism in 1953 with “The six canons of conservatism.” Now Levin has written a “Conservative Manifesto”. What you have here is a dogmatic adherence to a belief system. Levin is quick to call the president an “ideologue”, and this comes from a man that writes a manisfesto for conservatism? How dogmatically ideological is that?

    You state this: “So my advice is to open your eyes to see what’s happening around you outside of your little world”.
    My advice to you (and this is coming from somebody old enough to be your father) is to recognize that believing in something doesn’t make it true. Especially when it’s a fallalble idea coming from a fallable human being. Unless of course you think that Mr.Levin and conservatism are in fact…infallable. As an educated person you might ask yourself, “is it possible that I could be wrong”? If it isn’t possible for you to be wrong, then how can you be right? If you can’t entertain that as a possibility, then you’re simply preaching a belief, which can’t be demonstrated as being true. One would hope that the truth is more important than any belief.

    Looking for things that support your beliefs won’t make them true. That’s inductive reasoning. If you really are looking for the truth, then look for the things that would render those beliefs as false. If you won’t challenge your own beliefs whether they’re Biblical, or political, how will you ever know if those beliefs are actually true?

    I’ll leave you with this from Albert Einstein: “All the experiments that man can come up with won’t prove my theories to be true. One experiment can prove them to be false.”
