Never, not ever, did I think this blog would quote Pravda but, an article caught my eye and it was a very sobering thoughtful piece.
So it is our politicians saying that our society is full of incapable adolescents who can never be trusted? Then, please explain how we can trust them or the police, who themselves grew up and came from the same culture?
No it is about power and a total power over the people. There is a lot of desire to bad mouth the Tsar, particularly by the Communists, who claim he was a tyrant, and yet under him we were armed and under the progressives disarmed. Do not be fooled by a belief that progressives, leftists hate guns. Oh, no, they do not. [ed. note-Obama likes the guns around him and his familyand said as much] What they hate is guns in the hands of those who are not marching in lock step of their ideology. They hate guns in the hands of those who think for themselves and do not obey without question. They hate guns in those whom they have slated for a barrel to the back of the ear.
So, do not fall for the false promises and do not extinguish the light that is left to allow humanity a measure of self respect. http://english.pravda.ru/opinion/columnists/28-12-2012/123335-americans_guns-0/
also from Pravda;
Thus, the Chinese government calls Obama “to use the tragedy as a reason to promote the law on the control of weapons.” According to Chinese officials, now is the best time to act so, since the president has just been elected for a second term.
They also note that although previous similar shootings did not to any serious actions, the most recent tragedy may serve an important impetus to revise the system of arms control.”
According to US-based activist and FBI informant Brandon Darby, “the current Chinese government killed from 40 to 70 million people during Mao Zedong’s Revolution. Mao himself said that “political power starts in the barrel of a gun.” http://english.pravda.ru/news/world/21-12-2012/123268-china_usa-0/
The defining American code is freedom. The defining liberal code is compassion.
Conservatives have attempted to counter that by defining freedom as
compassionate, as George W. Bush did. Liberals counter by attempting to define
compassion as liberating, the way that FDR did by classing freedoms with
entitlements in his Four Freedoms.
On one side stands the individual with
his rights and responsibilities. On the other side is the remorseless state
machinery of supreme compassion. And there is no bridging this
Liberal compassion is not the compassion of equals. It is a
revolutionary pity that uses empathy only as fuel for outrage. It is the sort of
compassion practiced by people who like to be angry and who like to pretend that
their anger makes them better people. It is the sort of compassion that eats
like poison into the bones of a man or a society, even while swelling their egos
with their own wonderfulness.
Compassion of this sort is outrage fuel.
It is hatred toward people masquerading as love. And that hatred is a desire for
power masquerading as outrage which in turn is dressed up as a deep love for
others and empathy for all living creatures. Peel away the mask of compassion
and all that is underneath is a terrible lust for power. And the only way to
truly justify the kind of total power summoned by such lusts is by reducing the
people you would rule over to the status of non-persons.
This has to be the line in the sand or we’re all lab monkeys.
