Liberalism has become stifling and puts constraints upon people based on "identity groups" that the liberals (Democrats) place people in. They say some groups must vote for a certain way or believe a certain way because of characteristics they have no control over. They say some groups are basically bad people based on characteristics they have no control over. (i.e. race/gender/etc.)

Liberals and Democrats are quick to punish through doxing, social shaming, even job loss, those who violate the constraints of the group that liberals have placed them in. This is a reflection of the lefts (Democratic Party's) push toward socialism. A loss of individualism and demeaning individualism.

Now there is a response, a fighting back to regain ones personal dignity and to throw off the shackles and constraints placed on people by being forced into identity groups where the individual feels slandered or forced into, for having a characteristic they have no control over.

Every Individual Counts

EIC

Basic tenants:

1. No one should be forced by society into an "identity group" which strips them of their uniqueness.

2. No one should be forced by society into an "identity group" based on characteristics one has no control over.

3. Individuals must be free to express their political ideologies without fear of intimidation.

4. Individuals have the right to choose their religion or lack thereof and express it in public freely without fear of intimidation or censure.

5. Individuals have the right to peacefully disagree with any person in authority over matters of politics, ideology, or religion or lack thereof; be it teacher or politician without censure.


You may think we have these rights now, but with the liberals (Democrats) feeling obligated to destroy people for "incorrect" thinking, all of these rights which are slowly disappearing. Now that the left is legally in charge of the citizens of the US, we may see these rights totally destroyed in favor of collectivism and socialism.

This is one way we can fight back.

Jordan Peterson described a conservative mind rather nicely once, that they put people into little boxes, and put them onto a shelf where they think they belong, when they need them they know exactly where they are.

Thomas Sowell described a far lefty quite nicely in his book Intellectuals and Race. But more so pushed for the 'liberal' view. Saying that a liberal intellectual will try their hardest to convince others to think in a specific way to the point you'll have an engineer trying to tell you how child care should work or something. He used Noam Chomsky as a prime example.

At the end of the day, I don't think it really matters what political or economic leaning you are, everyone puts people into categories whether you are cognitive to the decision or unintentionally doing it. It's lack of familiarity, and people tend to veer towards what they are familiar with.

Joe Biden's pick of Secretary of Education is UNIQUE, and not ashamed of being a ball-buster either.

I also though it was the Conservatives (Dems) that put people into little boxes, labelling everything.

I do see a lot of American Righties trying to blame the Lefties for things that are considered Right Wing elsewhere, it's baffling sometimes but is that down to projection or do they genuinely believe it?

That's nice Care but it's hardly on topic is it? You don't like people doing this in your threads but you do it to everyone. Have some care, Care...

Left vs. Right IS NOT THE SAME in other countries.
Although it should be as it is derived from the left and right sides of the brain :
Left : emotion , arts ....etc.
Right : Logic , reason ...etc.

Kinda sums it up , huh ?

This is literally the definitive difference between our Constitutional Republic and a democracy; a democracy equals mob rule, with the strongest bullying the weakest, whereas our Constitutional Republic protects and preserves our natural inalienable natural rights down to the individual... the smallest minority.

I don't know why you felt it appropriate or proper to put it into partisan terms, especially because conservatives haven't done much better than liberals in protecting individual rights. The main difference (as I see it) is that conservatives will judge a person's willful choices (as opposed to immutable characteristics), and/or try to use color of law to punish that person, or will shun them from "polite" society (not much different than the liberal's cancel culture.)

Both parties are quite happy telling others who to be: what to believe, what to think, what to say, and what to do. And both are quite happy to use color of law and the barrel of a government gun to force their will on others.

They both fail.

If that were true, ask yourself why there are so many so invested in the idea that the most important things about Biden's cabinet picks are the superficial things: race, gender, sexual orientation, religious preference?

Don't you think they should be more concerned with things like experience with the subject matter at hand first and foremost?

Let's look at the HHS Sec pick. He's a wonderful Latinx pick I'm sure. Checks off the brown diversity box, but he has no actual health care experience at all. I guess Planned Parenthood likes him so that's enough? Because I'm sorry, but how Latinx someone is tells us nothing about how well they can do any job.

In order for liberalism to succeed though they need:

Control of public school brainwashing
Control of university brainwashing
Control of the media
Control of censorship on all major tech platforms
Physical violence and threats against those who disagree with them
Make all things they disagree with illegal

Exact opposite. Right side is emotion and left is logic. But which hand you are is controlled by the other side. Left handed by the right side and hence artists and musicians tend to be left handed.

I would agree that lack of diversity and inclusion is a major problem for the Democrat party. Its odd that they find their party in this situation when they profess to place a lot of importance on diversity and inclusion.

Republicans, the right, conservatives, etc. are also "identities."

My suggestion would be: stop believing that there are only two ways of looking at the world. That is nothing more than an age-old method to keep the people distracted and disolute.

Your points about the failures of the left/Democrat/progressive paradigm are notable, but you are still seeing them, at least in my opinion, through your own "identity" filters.

How about something like this: We are Americans. As Americans we are guaranteed individual rights by our Constitution.

We are also each a citizen of a State, and we can choose States with values more like our own.

We can work with groups cooperatively to meet our goals, and other than that, mind our own business.

That's a start, anyway.

Doesn't explain me. I do prefer my right hand when it comes to things like writing, but athletically, I'm pretty close to ambidextrous. It used to drive my coaches nuts because in some things, I'd be right dominant like you'd expect, and in other things, I'd be left dominant which would confuse them, and in other things, I'd either switch up from day to day or be truly ambidextrous.

I play drums left handed but need a right hand setup. To do this I need to either do a pickup note or skip the first beat.

They have done all but the last. It is yet to come if we don't fight back.

Sorry to burst your bubble

Guess you got your education from liberal teachers and professors

It actually came from France right after their revolution.

time.com...


One of the main issues the assembly debated was how much power the king should have, says David A. Bell, a professor of early modern France at Princeton University. Would he have the right to an absolute veto? As the debate continued, those who thought the king should have an absolute veto sat on the right of the president of the assembly, and those who thought he should not — the more radical view — sat on the left of the president of the assembly. In other words, those who wanted to hew closer to tradition were on the right, and those who wanted more change were on the left.

It is also psycho-babble. You use both side and definitely more than 10% of your brain capability everyday in all tasks. Oh, and once upon a time left Brain was male dominant and right was female dominant...

Crazy things people are told over an over. Kinda like fact checking on Facebook.

From my understanding it's a position not just about health, it's human services that encompass' a wide variety of positions that he oversee's. But his 'role' as you stated, with his lack of background health services, yea he can fit perfectly into the intellectual gone astray from their career path. But, I am going to guess he knows more about the other fields than he does about health, and is put in place to keep checks and balances for legal situations.

We use all our brain. What you can do with one hand you can do with the other. I learned this in my field, and I can now write fluently with both my hands, it just takes a little bit of practice that's all.
