Quote of the Week
The same theme over and over again is that the Left, from Wilson to FDR to Mussolini and yes, to Hitler, all think that their actions will make the world a better place. The goal of all of these people is to make a better world. The way to the most horrific examples of cruelty and slaughter in human history began with the highest and most noble intentions. The intention, first and foremost, of equality, of the “brotherhood of man”. The difference between fascism and Marxism is simply the scope. Lenin saw “humanity” as the proletariat, and everyone else as the eggs with which to make his omelet. Hitler’s definition of “humanity” is of course the Aryan German, and everyone else as an obstacle to be crushed.
Call me a cynic, but the more history (I) read the more I question the whole goal of equality. Now, it should be noted here then when I say equality I mean it in the Marxist definition of the redistribution of wealth. This economic equality is in fact the common goal of all the great evils of the 20th century. Plain old greed and ambition, whether it’s the Persians at Thermopylae, or the British at Assaye or the Americans at Manila Bay is nothing compared to the bodies heaped by those seeking “social justice”.
