EIN (I like that abbreviation) and I are pretty much polar opposites. I judge that on his threads and posts throughout the past few months that I've
read. I suppose I was just trying to stir something inside with the 'real enemy' comment. However, that would just prove all the crazy commie
conspiracies true, 'Socialists are out to get you!'
As such our similarities are that we both despise tyranny, however EIN will take, what I consider, the 'old world' stance on tyranny...that of the
governing body. I believe in the tyranny of the business owner, the tried and true enemy of the dreaded communist!
Just as EIN and his ilk believe that, if left unchecked, a government can become corrupt and tyrannical. I'm of the belief that, if left unchecked, a
private business can become corrupt and tyrannical.
I would like to see more democratic socialism in the world. EIN would like more libertarianism. In his eyes, it seems, there is no society, there is
only the individual. In my opinion, there are many individuals in society.
Has he made a dent? Not with me, I'm not going to change my views because I think we can do better using the constitution as a basis and a foundation
for society and government, not a wall that cannot and should not be penetrated.
As society changes, as such, the government must change. We recognize that change through the elections we hold. Lately, it seems, society is changing
faster than the government can, this is a problem. Do we change society or do we change government?
I listen to a lot of Michael Savage, his arguments claim to be on the basis of language, borders and culture. I agree with culture, we don't need to
staunchly uphold our language and borders though. Before you rage all over me let me say something, WW2 supposedly brought upon the death of
empires...that doesn't seem to be the case with America. We've continued and perpetuated this 19th century philosophy that right makes might and
might makes right, we beat the NAZI's because of our righteous mission and thus, we should lead the world.
EIN would argue this is bad becuase we should be isolationists, leave other people alone and they should leave us alone. I would argue that we
shouldn't impose our will on others but that we shouldn't be isolationists either. I don't mean to put words in your mouth, I just believe this is
If not for political differences I bet we could get along together quite well. Although, I'm not sure you'd fan my flames of narcissism by posting
something quite like this in one of my threads.
