PART 5 IN A SERIES

CHAPTER FIVE – HI THERE, MIND IF I RUN YOUR LIFE?

THE NANNY STATE: aka busybody politics. Politicians, bureaucrats and citizen boards know more about how to live your life, manage your health, and raise your kids than you do. Mandatory recycling? No thanks.

THE BULLY STATE: Nannying dressed up in stewardship clothing, threatening people rather than nudging. It is state sponsored shaming, coercion and propaganda. It is often associated with the authoritarian (rather than economic) component of fascism.

OCPD CONTROL FREAK: In the behavioral sciences field there is a differentiation between Obsessive/Compulsive Disorder and Obsessive Compulsive Personality Disorder. Those with OCD will be very rigid about running their own lives. Those with OCPD have a need to run other people’s lives. The former might be neat freaks or hoarders and cause problems and inconvenience for family members or acquaintances however the latter are “control” freaks and they cause problems for everyone. They are uncomfortable without rules and established procedures, and are very uncomfortable if everyone else does not follow THEIR rules. They naturally gravitate toward government service, academia and media.

REUSABLE GROCERY BAGS: Sticky, smelly, filthy, cloth bag carriers of bacteria and viruses which waste more energy and resources than plastic bags. Nanny state control freaks love ‘em.

LIBERAL ELITE: Those who claim to support the rights of the poor and working class yet are themselves members of the upper class, or upper middle class, and therefore out of touch with the real needs of the people they claim to support and protect.

LIMOUSINE AND LATTE LIBERALS: Terms used to illustrate hypocrisy of the liberal elite. They consider themselves exempt from mass transit, high mpg vehicles and public schools for their children.

CLASS ENVY: Coveting thy neighbor’s goods is an emotion based on a subjective perception of other people’s wealth regardless of how it was earned. It is the justification for collectivist redistribution of wealth by force with the historical unintended consequence of the equality of impoverishment. Class envy is the foundation of Marxism.

WELFARE STATE: A concept of government in which the state attempts to play a key role in the protection and promotion of the economic and social well-being of its citizens by providing free services and money. It is a mechanism for the redistribution of wealth taken from productive members of society. Historically conspicuous by an abundance of unintended negative consequences.

LIBERTARIAN PARADOX OF INDIVIDUAL FREEDOMS IN A WELFARE STATE: Open borders and drug legalization are both impossible in a welfare state.

MEDIA BIAS: The perception that the media is reporting the news in a partial or prejudiced manner. Media bias occurs when the media seems to push a specific viewpoint, rather than reporting the news objectively. Keep in mind that media bias also occurs when the media chooses to ignore an important aspect of the story. Numerous studies reveal a four or five to one liberal to conservative ratio of reporters, journalists and media professionals.

PUBLIC RADIO: Taxpayer funded media with a persistent liberal bias even after being outed. KGLP Gallup’s signature program Democracy Now features anti-capitalist Amy Goodman, an identity politics and warfare sociology crusader.

ACADEMIC BIAS: Nearly identical to media bias, with similar ratios of liberal to conservative professors and scholars. Claims are widespread of discrimination against those who hold a conservative ideology and arguments that research has been corrupted (junk science) by a desire to promote a progressive agenda. Recent exposures of extensive anthropogenic climate change fraud is an exemplar.

LIBERAL ACADEMIC/MEDIA COMPLEX: A manifestation of class solidarity. Those who commandeer to themselves the production of ideas and dissemination of information develop distinctive interests and perspectives, which lead to what the Marxists used to call ‘class consciousness’. The power of this complex has an ability to push the rest of us in directions dangerous to the national welfare.

REVISIONIST HISTORY: History is seemingly revised to reflect a more accurate account when – in most cases – it is mainly to appease the current social, political, economic, religious or racial biases of those who record it, thus becoming politically correct. Democrats still attempt to erase their lengthy racist history of pro-slavery and anti-civil rights.

IVORY TOWER: If you’re in an ivory tower, you live in a world of ideas separate from the realities of most people’s lives. Your university philosophy department might be your ivory tower, where discussions about theory are the most important things in life. It’s a privileged situation to be in, since ordinary people tend to have more mundane priorities, concerns, and struggles. The phrase most often describes academia.

TENURE: The status of holding one’s position on a permanent basis without periodic contract renewals. It is a teacher’s dream that allows them to conduct their classes however they want without worry of being fired.
