When did the United States become a country full of citizens void of rational independent thought?
When did we cease to have the ability to comprehend the deeper meaning of free expression, art, poetry, or literature?
The answer is clear: Rational thought went out the window when Political Correctness became king!
Political Correctness is a dangerous tool used by the "ruling" class to attack crimes of the mind - thoughtcrimes, if you will. Just like this Orwellian paradox, Political Correctness is used to attack the idea that free expression can be used to invoke independent reasonable conclusions.
Take, for example, the Danish cartoonist depicting Muhammad as wearing a bomb turban. The intent behind the cartoon is to invoke a cognitive debate by making the emotional argument so extreme - however, the mind of the masses have been made to think like children , unable to reason beyond the initial emotional instinct, thus unable (or unwilling for fear of committing thoughtcrime) to progress beyond the baser ability of the mind and participate in rational thought. [1. When I was a child, I spoke like a child, thought like a child, and reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up my childish ways - 1 Corinth 13:11]
So when the New Yorker magazine publishes it's Barack Obama cover, are we to react in such ways that the Obama Campaign has reacted, attacking the overtly ridiculous emotional intention of the art as "tasteless and offensive", or should we consider the intent behind the cartoon - rational thought about the politics of fear? Again, I ask, when did we lose our ability of rational thought, of cognitive ability?
Have we become so controlled that we are as children - even those seeking the highest office in these United States?
In fact, the cover of the New Yorker is a beautiful representation of free speech being used to challenge political correctness and subsequent childish thinking, such as fear mongering.
Obama is not a terrorist, not a Muslim, and not going to invite Osama over for tea and crumpets.
What he will do, however, is establish policy in the United States putting emphasis on the new form of government slowly taking over in this country - Socialist Democracy. The evolution of the United States is one that began as a Republic, became a Democracy, and is inching dangerously close towards Socialism. Electing leaders such as Obama will ensure a march away from freedom, and ensure the end of this great experiment of freedom and liberty. (Tools are already in place to silence the opposition against the Socialist Savior)
*Republic, if you can keep it - Benjamin Franklin
*Republic vs. Democracy
Are we a nation now of child-minded mobs, such that makes a democracy in decline? Are we a people who believe in collective ownership of property, in any capacity - such that makes a socialist society?
Or are we a nation that supports the liberty of free expression, personal responsibility, and personal ownership - such that makes a true republic?
For a republic to survive, her people must be intelligent enough to recognize hysteria associated with ideals such as Political Correctness and Though Crimes.
Join with me in applauding the fight for intelligent thought that the New Yorker is attempting to maintain.
