Anyone who has not read Aldous Huxley's book, "Brave New World" should. It was written over 60 years ago, and is amazingly accurate in its characterization of the oppressive nature of Leftist policy. In the 2008 Presidential campaign, Barack Obama said he wanted to fundamentally transform America, and he has. The problem is that it didn't need to have its fundamentals transformed but reinforced. And what he has transformed America into is a society that is reminiscent of Huxley's "Brave New World."
It is a brave new world that Leftists have created from the philosophical excrement that is Marxist theory. It is a brave new world where the country's young have chosen to imprison themselves in a doomed future all for the promise of a false security. A false security which is promised by a government that can no more fulfill the promises it makes than the great ochre can soar with the eagles. It is a brave new world where manufactured self-esteem is an acceptable alternative to accomplishment and success.
It is a brave new world where sameness and oneness is driven by an overwhelming desire of those on the Left to achieve equality at any cost. And where that pursuit of equality takes precedence over reason and justice, real justice, not the manufactured justice of the Left that seeks to redistribute wealth and create a society where everyone is equally subservient to government. It is a brave new world where success is punished, failure rewarded, and the spoils divided among the ruling class.
It is a brave new world where up is not down, but up is evil, down is pure and good and the government decides which is which. It is a brave new world where the back of the hand is firmly applied to the principles of independence and liberty. And a helping hand is offered to the oppression and tyranny of dependence.
It is a brave new world where the Constitution and other founding documents of a once great nation are made living documents by the stale breath of tyranny and oppression from Leftist politicians who decide what those great and liberating words ultimately say.
It is a brave new world where an entire political party has encouraged out-of-wedlock births and has discouraged marriage all for the purpose of creating a permanent underclass that is enslaved to those politicians and consequently must continue to return them to their seats of power year after year. It is a brave new world where the profane has been made holy and the holy has been abandon at the ash heap of civil society.
Yes, it is a brave new world that has been brought to us by Barack Obama and the Left. But there is hope, there are individuals which even today carry the torch of ideas that never die, no matter how weak their flickering flame becomes. Let us hope and pray that the flicker is fed and becomes a roaring inferno of true liberty and freedom.
