The 'DoGooder' Gene, and Ron Paul Logic
I have been listening to the Glen Beck program this morning, and he has his usual substitute(suspect?) hosting the show when he is away. This guy is just going on, and on, and on, about how stupid Paul is on his foreign policy. Hannity does the same thing, as does Rush. Levin is another, amongst many, many, more. Its never ending it seems.
I'm convinced that there is something basic and primal going on here. And I just came up with what I will call the "DoGooder" gene.
The Progressive Left has this "DoGooder" gene, and they think they have to impose good on to government and make the rest of us to what they consider to be good. Individual Liberty is nice, as long as they conform to the Progressive idea of what is good. Unfortunately, to Progressives will need more government to force this good on everyone.
The So called Conservative Right also has this "DoGooder" gene, and they think they have to impose good on to the rest of the world and make the rest of the world rich, free, and peace loving, as long as it conforms to their ideals of Good. Unfortunately, the so called Conservatives will need more military to force their good on everyone.
It's one huge addiction, this "DoGooderIsm", and it is present in all of us. Unfortunately most of us are unable to resist this thing, and achieve great satisfaction in trying to proselytize their need to feel good about themselves,......and spread the Good.
If you are an evangelical Christian, you will see this all the time in your church. There are thousands of Christians rushing out, doing missionary work, to do good for Jesus/Yeshua and spread the word. Same thing here with both sides of the isle.
All these candidates are hell bent on spreading their version of "DoGooderIsm" to everyone else, and they look on Ron Paul as the heretic in the attic. How dare he have the unmitigated gall to preach "Live and Let Live". How dare he tell us that going to war so 'carelessly' is not a virtue.
Fortunately, there are more of these addicts, who are finally beginning to realize that just like heroin and alcohol, we pay a terrible price for this Gawd-Awful addiction. Let's hope enough realize this before it is too late. After all, we are now broke, and both sides of the "DoGooderIsm" isle have pretty much reached the end of the line.
Time to be Saved.
