  1. Mike: “Whilst humanity is certainly not born ‘equal’ there is an assumption in left leaning circles that ‘nurture’ is of more effect than ‘nature’ and if society was/is rebuilt around this assumption, then it would be a more socially just society. This leads into the ‘one size fits all’ education that we now see is the vogue, it has been a disaster, producing millennial sheeple who lack basic cognitive skills. But in hindsight we can see that this was always its aim.”

    Dymphna: “Mike, your first sentence goes against the Founding documents in the American Constitution:

    The second paragraph of the United States Declaration of Independence starts as follows:

    We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed;[7]

    The Virginia Declaration of Rights, chiefly authored by George Mason and approved by the Virginia Convention on June 12, 1776, contains the wording:

    all men are by nature equally free and independent, and have certain inherent rights of which . . . they cannot deprive or divest their posterity; namely, the enjoyment of life and liberty, with the means of acquiring and possessing property, and pursuing and obtaining happiness and safety.[8]

    George Mason was an elder-planter who had originally stated John Locke’s theory of natural rights:

    All men are born equally free and independent and have certain inherent natural rights of which they cannot, by any compact, deprive or divest their posterity; among which are the enjoyment of life and liberty, with the means of acquiring and possessing property, and pursuing and obtaining happiness and safety.[9]

    Mason’s draft was accepted by a small committee and then rejected by the Virginia Convention. Thomas Jefferson, a competent Virginia lawyer, saw this as a problem in legal writing and chose words that were more acceptable to the Second Continental Congress.

    The Massachusetts Constitution, chiefly authored by John Adams in 1780, contains in its Declaration of Rights the wording:

    Article I. All men are born free and equal, and have certain natural, essential, and unalienable rights; among which may be reckoned the right of enjoying and defending their lives and liberties; that of acquiring, possessing, and protecting property; in fine, that of seeking and obtaining their safety and happiness.[10]

    What has been lost is the idea of equality of opportunity. Socialists, and their ilk, demanded that it be twisted into “equality of outcome” and that was never the intention behind the founding idea that “all men are created equal”. It would be generations till that became ALL men, and then all people. But it’s there as a germ of an idea; otherwise there could have been no Civil War in this country, and no further clarification with the Equal Right Amendment added later.

    Human beings, tangled as we are in our own fear and greed, have been twisting those words ever since. I like “The Course in Miracles” idea that we live, at all times, in either fear or love. And at no time has our culture been more riven by fear…C.S. Lewis warned us, though, as have the playwrights done in each generation: the only- ONLY, SOLE – path through life is a continuing maturity in what it means to experience forgiveness of ourselves and of others.

    We are born broken and rageful. That tiny baby, sleeping so sweetly, is a bundle of need and rage…when we successfully calm the latter, by meeting his needs (and none can do that perfectly), then the more “equal” to his potential he becomes, and the larger his compassion. But it will always be only partial. That’s why I like the concept of Original Sin, though the wording is outdated.

    We are simply born too soon. Long before we can communicate effectively, we have overwhelming needs that must be met by others. We can only ever partially “say” what those needs are for the first year or so…the more quickly we acquire languages – words, laughter, music, interactional play – the more fully human we become…

    I like the Chinese idea of ‘nurture’ – i.e., the world of the child is central to the family for the first two years. After that, the child conforms to the family world around him…yes, it always remains only partially realized, parents being human, but it is still a good operating principle.

    The Native Indians who used a papoose – I see a variation of this in Russian immigrant baby/mother interaction – kept the child so close to the mother’s beating heart that she could tell when the infant was going to eliminate any waste and held him away from her body while he did his ‘business’. The rest of the time he spent growing, eating, becoming accustomed to his mother’s skin and smell. Becoming human.

    Remember Bowlby’s experiments with monkeys to demonstrate primate needs? Like that.”

  2. Barack Obama should be sentenced to life in prison for being the direct and only cause of this insanity. From the start of his presidency he has been pushing to start a race war and now he appears to have achieved his evil goal. There is no epidemic of white cops shooting innocent black boys for no reason and Obama knows that, but he keeps legitimizing that wicked pack of lies every time a cop shoots a black guy for any reason whatsoever. These poor, uneducated, downtrodden, easily-fooled people would not be out demanding dead cops if America’s first black president hadn’t told them that they were basically right…

    • Obama’s actions have in the long run done more to destroy the left then all of the anti-communists managed to do in the 20th Century. He has brought them out in plain sight working to destroy western civilization.
