Here is a little piece of apathy from the moonbat march.
I guess it is appropriate that they chant “I believe” as a profession of faith. The things they believe in cannot be supported by they realities of real life and, therefore, are matters of faith.
Here are some platitudes for you to ponder.
Patriotism is about “recognizing people deserve love.” Hmmm, that is so far afield it is tough to address. I suppose even the most ardent flag burning leftists can say they believe in love. I bet even the 9/11 terrorists loved their children. The belief that people deserve love as the definition of patriotism is a pretty low bar for even a phony leftist patriot to jump.
They believe that “the needs of people should come before the profits of corporations.” That is a nice soundbite, isn’t it? Yeah, and also believe that needs of people come before food, shelter, clothing and oxygen too. Basically, it is the same argument. The reality is that business profits are a foundational provider for the needs of people. Without profit, the economy cannot function and it collapses. When that happens, the needs of no one are met. Unless you are living on Walden Poud in 1845, everything you have is the result of business and commerce that wouldn’t exist but for the opportunity for profit. Without profit, civilization collapses. The belief by the left that profit is somehow separate from the maintenance of the needs of the people is reason enough to not take them seriously.
They also believe that all people are “entitled to decent living conditions, full health care and quality education.” Also very nice sounding pap. The idea sends a thrill up my leg. So what? From where do these entitlements come? Did serfs in the Holy Roman Empire have these entitlement? How about pre-Columbian native Americans? How about the good folks of Haiti today? If not, from where do these entitlements come? They obviously aren’t natural rights because the neolithic hunter gatherers of the glaciated Asian steppe sure as hell didn’t have these entitlements. Even today, you can’t get these things but through arrangements with others. These things are modern inventions that require – wait for it- profits to create.
Clearly the left doesn’t limit their thinking to a world in which you are entitled to purchase decent living conditions, full health care and quality education. No, that wouldn’t be even worth saying. They are arguing that you have the right to have the state seize wealth created by others and that it be transferred to you for your use. Even if your contribution to society is a warm body, an angry sense of entitlement and a world-class case of sloth, you are entitled to have a good standard of living, good health care and quality education handed to you.
A cult that requires acceptance of this bizarre belief system is bound to lack enthusiasm. No wonder their profession of faith was so pathetically lackluster.
