Why I Am Not a Liberal
Written on January 19th, 2011
Some liberals spread their ideology and indoctrinate people by using law and rhetoric to divide people on the basis of race, sexual orientation, political affiliation, etc., for a seemingly well-meaning and progress-minded purpose. One would think that, due to the Marxist emphasis on "workers' solidarity", liberals would want people from all walks of life to join together to fight the oppressive, consumerist, industrially-protectionist, feudalistic mercantile capitalist state.
But no; the Civil Rights acts, the Equal Rights Amendment, the Americans with Disabilities Act, federal hate-crime legislation, affirmative action, minimum wage laws, and suppression of the Green Party and other socialist parties, all show that the liberal cause is benefited when people believe that their rights are derived not from their individual liberty, but from their being members of groups.
Groupthink is not a province of real classical liberalism, social liberalism, or libertarianism; it's a province of chauvinism. Chauvinism doesn't just mean sexual or gender-based chauvinism, i.e., misogyny; it means "biased devotion to any group, attitude, or cause."
Some liberals encourage people to define themselves based on their gender, race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, and political affiliation, and this causes in-fighting between the groups, leading to each group to insist on their own legal, political, and civil rights on the basis of their membership in those groups, rather than banding together under the banner of workers' solidarity and asserting their economic and labor-derived rights to things like sufficient and equal pay and benefits.
This is what people mean when they say liberals have double standards and no consistent ideology.
Divide and conquer.
