Thoughts on Government

“Some people believe that morality is only for suckers, for losers — that the amoral people are the smart guys, who are more likely to get what they want, because they impose no restrictions on themselves. Some people even make a religion of selfishness, of amorality: the Libertarians, for example, and the followers of the Soviet Jewess Ayn Rand.

Actually, however, most of us are moral because morality has had survival value for us for a very long time. It evolved with us. We developed the tendency to be moral over the course of many thousands of generations, because those groups of people, those communities, with a high percentage of moral people in them were more likely to survive and prosper than those groups consisting primarily of amoral people.”

      Someone (maybe de Tocqueville?) commented long ago that the success of America was owed in part to the honesty of the people, to the Protestant ethic, where people could trust their business partners, (mostly), where a man’s word was his bond.

      We see the comparison again in Russia even today, where so much potential goes unrealized because of the corruption of the Russian people by the forced imposition and institutionalization of the Judeo-Communist immorality, where the people pretended to work and the government pretended to pay them, where business is still reluctant to invest because of the threat of fraud, where the criminal Jewish oligarchs are still looting the Russian people and where they still do as they please, regardless of law or morality.

      Chandala, I don’t know if using Russia as and example is a good idea, at least compared to the US. They have a first class military while only spending about 65 billion a year compared to our 650 billion, seems like we’re the ones getting bled dry by oligarchs.
