Its been a little while since I’ve written. It seems that the same old story keeps surfacing, “The gap widens between the 1 percent and the rest of America.” etc…etc.. ad nauseum. Socialistic thinking has permeated American society to the point that we envy those who have been successful and somehow think that we have a God given right to judge them and start taking away their wealth. Yes, it is about redistribution of wealth. Yes, it is socialism. Yes, it is wrong.
I guess it is a result of our fallen nature, but instead of whining about how much someone else makes, why don’t you take the time to make the money yourself if it is that important to you? How come immigrants come here from another country, work 3 jobs, learn English, and support their families, while those who grow up here, get free education, free opportunity, squander it and then get upset when someone else takes advantage of the opportunities presented to them? I don’t get it.
Ultimately, what happens is that the cream always rises to the top. Those who take the initiative to do things with their lives will rise above those who don’t. Does that mean that there are leaders and followers? Yes, it does. By nature leaders are fewer, while followers are the majority. This is the whole basis of rule by aristocracy. By the way, in general the aristocracy earned their right to rule at some point, usually by heroism in battle, not because they had the best commercials in a political ad campaign.
On one final note, I see that their was a death in the Mad Monarchist family. I send my sincerest condolences….Memory Eternal!
