Yesterday Mrs. Clinton showed us again how a progressive thinks – that is, what kind of principles guide her. FBI director Comey announced that he was reopening the investigation into her emails. Her reaction was typical of a progressive. She again chose to try to cripple the investigation by demanding that the Weiner emails be released immediately. If that happened there would no longer be an investigation. It would all be tried in the media and they are in her pocket.
All her life Clinton has made decisions this way. She is not alone, either. Progressives care nothing for others nor for what is right. They instead look for a decision that will inch their position just a little further along. Lying, cheating, even killing is fine as long as it moves your marker forward – and you are not caught.
The principle that guide people like Mrs. Clinton are not the ones that guide all of us. Western civilization broke away from the pack of the rest of the world, ending the Dark Ages. One thing caused that: Christian teachings. Jesus Christ taught his followers love instead of blind obedience to base instincts that had ruled mankind for thousands of years.
It worked, too. His followers were still persecuted but they cared for each other. That’s something that had never before happened. Followers of this teaching developed the principles that brought the western world into a rebirth. People began working together toward similar goals because they Wanted to. As a result their lives got better. Education and learning became available to everyone. That fed other advances and the result is what we see today.
Today we are at a juncture. The western principles are being challenged and degraded by those with the progressive mindset. They don’t care about you or me. Nor do they care about the future after they die. Their sole concerns are those little advances they can make toward control.
In these days we find that there is so much talk about the latest scandals that there is almost no discussion about the values of Christian and Jewish teachings. I believe it is past time that we initiate some. Philosophy is difficult when everyone is yelling in your ear.
