US Polling Expert Finds Young Americans Are 'Terrifyingly Liberal'For clarity we should point out that thanks to the hippy movement of the 1960s and 1970s when young Americans describe themselves as 'liberal' they do not mean like JFK, Franklyn D Roosveldt and Jimmy Carter were liberal, but rather amoral and nihilistic, dedicated solipsists in other words.
Results frim polling by right-wing political consultant Frank Luntz, show that Americans aged 18 to 26 are extremely liberal — so liberal that Luntz says "the hostility of young Americans to the underpinnings of the American economy and the American government should frighten every business and political leader and “excite activists for Sanders and, to a lesser degree, Clinton activists."
Luntz’s poll concluded young Americans are optimistic about both the country’s future and their own: 61 percent say the best days of the United States are still ahead of us rather than behind us, and 88 percent are somewhat, very, or extremely optimistic about their economic prospects. But they have concerns, too. Their biggest, in order, are "corruption," "greed," and "inequality."
President Obama did not emerge as their favourite political figure havinf failed to cover himself in glory with his warmongering abroad and incompetence at home. Bernie Sanders with 31 percent saying he is the major political figure they "like and respect the most", was well ahead of Obama (18 percent) and Hillary Clinton (11 percent). Few young people like and respect Republican politicians, with just 9 percent choosing Donald Trump, 5 percent George W. Bush, and 5 percent Ted Cruz. Bill Clinton is almost forgotten with only 3 percent choosing him (well some of these kids were still at the pap when his presidency ended). Elizabeth Warren also has low visibility at just 2 percent.
Modern liberalism (or more accurately solipsism) seems to be occupying the space where the Left should be, confusing and misleading people, steering people away from accurate perceptions and clouding their minds, preventing them from asking the right questions because they think they already have the answers. I suspect such answers as they think they have were planted by schoolteachers and college or university lecturers throughout the years in full time education.
If we are willing to turn over the dead dog of modern liberalism you will see the true nature of the ruling class war against the people with crystal clarity; what looks smooth and healthy on top is really a corrupt mess crawling with worms and maggots. As it is, we can’t even see the enemy now. While mainstream media demonises Russia, Christianity and Conservatism, the real enemy is the ruling elite, the politicians, business leaders, academics and professionals who use the tools technology provides in order to manipulater perceptions.
Many people reading this will define themselves as “liberals” or “progressives” and therefore, may reject whatever came before… but it is still important to know what that was. Real liberals consider it their duty to question authority and hold to account those who appear to be acting out of self interests and abousing power. A true liberal also ought to be questioning established truths rather that joining mantra's such as "The science is settled," or "Immigration is good for the econonomy".
Finally, seems to be the case that those who identify as liberal or progressive may prefer to use political labels rather than reasoned argument when trying to make a case. "Racist", Sexist", "Homophobic", and Islamophobic" are not political aruments, nor is "White privilege" but these are among the most common phrases used by "liberals" to incite a lynch mob mentality among their supporters against people trying to express a different point of view. A feature all these trigger words have in common is that they have no particular relevance to the actual issues which divide "liberals" from libertarians, conservatives, nationalists and the more traditional type of socialists.
Traditionally liberals and socialists are not merely different points in a common spectrum but, implacable enemies. The main issue that divided them is class, but that now seems to have disappeared from the general lexicon as the broad left claims to speak for "the working class" while almost totally being themselves members of the managerial or academic a class and even more remote from the lives and concerns of people they claim common cause with than the old capitalists and landed gentry ever were.
If the term “left” has any meaning now other than a purely as a means of differentiating between various factions of the wealthy elite, it is as a belief that politics is driven less by ideas than by sectioal interests based on economic social class. Radical socialists, democratic socialists, (the British Labor Party and German Social Democratss of the twentth century), utopian socialists, agrarian socialists, communists, anarchists, anarcho-syndicalists, and nihilists – if these do not agree on anything else, they agree on the centrality of shared values even before they divide on what to do about them.
In contrast these new egocentric Liberals explicitly reject the centrality of social values in favour of a morality based on the belief that only illiberal and repressive forces in society stand between them and the freedom to do just as they wish. Which is what they think being 'liberal is all about really. Leagalise child sex, incest and paedophilia, no problem for the liberals and their hippy culture, live like you wanna live man. So long at it does not involve a white person doing anything naughty with someone whose skin is darker than theirs of course.RELATED POSTS:
