The American republic since its inception has been a shining exemplar of success. The nation ascended from fledgling British colony to the sole superpower in the world. It built an economy that generated unparalleled wealth, liberated millions from oppression by wielding the might of its magnificent military, and attracted a diverse and vibrant society proud to live in the bastion of liberty.
The deception of perfection is leading many of us blindly into a world where one cannot lead one’s own life and be influenced by chance. It’s a world where people’s lives are shaped and effectively determined by their flawed fellow human beings. The random misfortunes of life are thus leading to systematized misfortune — which is in turn exacerbated and made direr by the state’s removal of all personal responsibility for and control over one’s own life to the extent made possible by a free market and a government that safeguards individual rights. The left is not altering mankind’s immutable state of affairs, one that entails luck and natural diversity. Rather, it is simply turning the role of chance and the weak-minded perception of life’s unfairness into an internally divisive society laying the foundations for all-powerful government.
