When we are born, we look around helplessly in our bassinettes, unable to do anything for ourselves. If we want something, we have to cry to get it. Maybe a lot. But we learn that our crying is what works after our parent figures out what we want.
Then we start to develop and walk around by ourselves. We learn that people don’t really want to change our diapers anymore. Then we learn to speak. With the new tool of speech, we find out that we can ask for, or demand concessions from our parents or other caretakers. Depending upon the skill or tolerance of our parents, it may be effectual to nag or throw temper tantrums to get our own way. Then the stakes are raised as language opens the door for the child to deploy guile and cunning to obtain their heart’s desires. They learn many devices, such as guilt tripping; comparing ourselves to what others get; misrepresenting and marginalizing others (lying); and any other Machiavellian tactic.
At some point our parents gladly send us off to school with their DNA to see us become the success they always imagined. Some youngsters learn that by excelling in school, they find emotional or monetary rewards for their efforts. A few exceptional kids figure out that their scholastic learning is actually for their own benefit. (Such people tend to end up with bosses who are less stupid.) Most kids do only as well in school as is necessary to meet the parent’s lowest allowable expectation.
Somewhere along the line, most of us learn that if we do not behave as law-abiding citizens, the court system will intervene. Failing that, thieves or other criminals continue to have an overwhelming sense of entitlement, and often, but not always, end up in jail. But to many, as long as they are following the law, the old tried and true method of whining to others for their capricious wants is still the way to go.
To make things even more complicated for the spoiled brat, they may not have any means of determining right from wrong beyond Hollywood themes, or whatever is convenient for them. Whether or not the young person becomes a functioning law-abiding citizen, they may have never been taught any spiritual responsibility through religious guidance. Consequently, they are left with the Godless public education worldview of Darwinian survival of the fittest, and go off to journalism school to supposedly become an objective news reporter; so they can change the world to fit their own opinions.
The whining model of procurement, when applied to politics, is manifest in liberalism, and have-not community organization. Their socialist sense of entitlement tells the liberal they have a right to dip into whoever’s wallet that is necessary for “equality”. They seek out socialist “progressive” candidates who reinforce their view of the world that everyone must “share” with them. Otherwise, those who resist are greedy gun and Bible clingers. If someone confronts them with the viewpoint that people should do things for themselves, the selfish haters who gotta hate, open themselves up to an onslaught of attacks.
Liberal pied-pipers march out sad stories in front of the media. They showcase examples of the truly needy as a way of “proving” that they are the compassionate ones fighting the good fight against racism, capitalism, and the American way. “Activists”, who always seem available on any day of the week to protest, see themselves as a type of “Robin Hood” anti-heroes, going about and performing high-minded noble acts like smashing store windows for “the little guy”. Their noble cause justifies the means. This is why we conservatives, aka “normal people” always encounter a surprising amount of abrasiveness when trying to reason with liberals. This is because if you try to employ common sense with them, you are de-facto trying to stand in their way. You are like a barbaric enemy who is trying to plunder what is rightfully theirs, you jerk. Or, you are trying to force your views upon them through insidious logic.
It remains to be seen how conservative Trump really is, or is willing to be. Trump is not likely a conservative ideologue. So to the extent that Trump is a conservative; that will give liberals a chance to get over some of their touchy-feelings of “betrayal”. Some will even see that conservatism floats all boats. Then, who knows? Maybe next time a true conservative can actually win a Republican primary. But probably only if the failing Democrat party gets off of the median and steers some to the right.
Trump will no doubt do at least part of what he has promised; wobbly RINOs notwithstanding. While this is going on, there is no doubt that the liberal snowflakes will behave very badly, because that is how they are programmed from birth. Many liberals will never give up, they will never stop. So, most of those “disenfranchised” victims with their delicate emotionally-charged sensitivities will never work with the deplorables. Consequently, it is up to the adults in the country to stand up to their increasingly transparent schemes as they roll around flailing their arms and legs in the cereal aisle.
