This sort of thing has been said before...
I think it's true - but I'm not sure anyone can be convinced.
Walter Williams never disappoints. Later day slavery (how the liberals enslave black Americans but never deliver on promises) is probably the clearest failure example of liberalism to illustrate. This seed of truth will fall on barren ledge as progressives and most moderates are incapable of understanding the simple truth. Whether it's a matter of indoctrination, indifference, or faulty reasoning capabilities is anyone's guess.
No, liberals aren't out to enslave minorites, they are just too optimistic about the effectiveness of policies without actually looking at the practical implications. In other words, they mean well but they don't spend enough time thinking about what will actually happen and then get all mad when people point out the problems with their policies.
Liberals love their minorities.
Minorities make liberals feel superior.
If they really cared for minorities, they would help them to stand as their equals instead of keeping them down on the plantation with the welfare policies in place since LBJ.
“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.” C.S. Lewis
“Half the harm in the world is due to people who want to feel important. They don’t mean to do harm, but the harm doesn’t interest them. Or they do not see it, or they justify it because they are absorbed in the endless struggle to think well of themselves.”
T. S. Eliot
Liberals want to believe they are wonderful. And you're just getting in the way!
Its an addiction.
Holding court over their pet minorities and the supposedly downtrodden masses they feel so sorry for is exactly like shooting Heroin into a junkie's arm.
They throw a twenty to that "poor homeless person", and then wait to feel the endorphins flood their receptors.
Throw a billion dollars of OPM at a whole class of people and bask in the euphoria for days.
It helps liberals to make themselves feel better about themselves.
I regard it as a character flaw that, in the end, all the people they think they're helping end up paying the price for.
