“The intelligentsia often divide people into those who are for change and those who are for the status quo.”

“We have it in our power to begin the world over again.”
This is the progressive battle cry from time immemorial. The progressive desires to always start from scratch. He consistently desires to completely ignore the successes that our Fathers passed on to us in terms how we lean into life. All of that must be scuttled for instantaneous and dramatic change. The world must always be made over again. The old boundaries that our Fathers lived by for centuries must be cast down and new borders drawn. Let us begin the world over again by redefining marriage, by redefining gender, by even redefining public bathrooms. Let us begin the world over by making health care a right, by requiring everybody be vaccinated, by shipping our children out to be intellectually mauled by intellectually impoverished government school teachers. Let us being the world over by pursuing solar energy, wind energy, and fubar energy, while shutting down the energy sources that have expanded our life spans and accelerated Western civilization for over 100 years.
Beginning the world over again was the battle cry of Obama in 2008 when five days before the election he boasted that “we are five days away from fundamentally transforming America.” It was heard again just a few days ago when Bernie Sanders, upon winning the New Hampshire primary chirped, “Our campaign is not just about beating Trump, it is about transforming this country.” One never hears a conservative talk this way… not even when there is a need to change in order to undo the random flotsam and jetsam resulting from the “change” wrought by the progressives.
A concomitant of this need to begin the world over is a crisis. It is always the case that the demand for change that fundamentally transforms is because some kind of crisis is upon us which the ways of our fathers cannot handle. In FDR’s era it was the manufactured crisis of the banks failing that demanded that FDR’s brain trust fundamentally transform America. Today it is the manufactured crisis that is global climate change that has the “changers” doing their best chicken little imitation crying that “the sky is falling,” “the sky is falling,” and so we must fundamentally transform America. In the end it is not really change that is needed, but instead the genesis of this cry for change is a combination of desiring to line one’s pocket with the will to power and desire to control populations (you and I).
The people who cry for the world to begin anew are demons loosed from the pit. Listening to them and yoking with them by voting for them is a sure way to impoverish yourself and the generations behind you.
Besides, positive change never comes by the social engineering that these doomsayers always offer as the cure-all for the crisis. You’d think by now mankind would have learned this. Fundamental change comes by winning hearts and minds, and not by giving the keys of legislative authority to a group of people who have more in common with Svengali, Rasputin, de Sade, and Kinsey then they have in common with the values handed down to you by your Christian Fathers.
Changing yourself will do more to make the world over again than empowering these madmen by voting them into office.
