Being an individual is often more powerful than joining a crowd
True conservatism, seeks to conserve the good, the true, and the beautiful as an inheritance to the succeeding generations. Conservatism has allowed the West the prosper in the excellence of morality, law, liberty, art, literature, science, philosophy, theology, and politics.
Mitch Daniels, President of Purdue University, coined the term “the mad pursuit of perfection” in his commencement address last year. Paul Gleiser of radio station KTBB in Tyler, used the term in his weekly You Tell Me, Texas newsletter. He referred to the way our government handled the pandemic crisis and the many things that continue to harm children. Saying:“As that tally progresses, another ‘mad pursuit of zero’ is underway. This time it’s the mad pursuit of another ‘emissions energy policy.’”
It takes a special kind of confused, self-centered, adolescent thinking to believe that humans can, and without previous experience, create excellence.
Most of us know there is nothing to prove any of it is real. They just have a group of experts who can, and in only their minds, think it into reality. No cause-and-effect proof, only conjecture made up of theory, and an idea that fits their goal. But they will not examine their argument, because they are making money and gaining power by misrepresentation.
It is a policy that eliminates the dependable things we do to keep cool or warm, move about quickly, and light our homes and factories. That means, to eliminate them based upon a plan of pure conjecture and consensus proof. Nothing real or measurable. With only the power of their minds, they have made it so. And they have a plan, based on conjecture. What they really expect to create is a compliant population without the power they are given in the Constitution.
Now the current administration thinks there is a way to shelter the earth from the sun’s rays.
And there it is, the Adult Arrested Adolescent (TriA) approach to things which they claim are not fair or equal. They demand that you and I must carry equality and fairness out to the last decimal place. They are, like a child whose peas cannot touch their carrots, and who manipulates their parents into fixing it. Otherwise, they will tantrum, and refuse to eat anything on their plate.
Of course, they have picked two things than cannot be measured. Fairness and Equality as they want it cannot exist. We, as a culture, would not entertain that idea if the progressive ideas of our schools were not creating it in TriA minds. These are policies fed them by school unions.
Gleiser’s message reminds us of the many countdowns that warned of thawed ice caps, then swollen shores, and then blistering droughts that never happened. That is, they never happened other than in the normal ebb and flow of weather.
That’s what the child-mind cannot tolerate. The ebb and flow of life. Every day must be lived according to their say-so. Every grand scheme will work, unless the kid they dislike imagines it, then the kid with glasses and a lisp broke it, ruined things. They can clearly see the glasses and hear the lisp by redefining what amounts to lisp and glasses–just make it so. You can’t, you aren’t their kind of special.
That is government policy making and policy today in mind of the Adult’s Arrested Adolescents who labor daily in policy centers funded by billionaires and big business, and that is conflict of interest. Their mission is to tell the world, they have made it so. Conjured in their minds, things far superior to those long-term practical experiences that have proven to work. The rest of the world, nods like a doting parent and thinks, the king has no clothes.
“Make it so.” Is a line from an old Star Trek re-run. It’s not a good government policy.
