BACK TO THE OP: Prager gave all the information needed
Prager's piece was an opinion piece but he gave tons and tons of desriptions of what he was talking about, which I recognized and all conservatives would recognize. So if jar or the llb/lfftists don't recognize them it's just because all they know is the Fake News sources.

Re: BACK TO THE OP: Prager gave all the information needed
Prager presented no evidence, only unsupported assertions and nutjob fantasies.

Re: BACK TO THE OP: Prager gave all the information needed
He presented no evidence Faith, just silly assertions and fantasy.

But he is not here so it is up to you to find some evidence that supports that Fear of the Left is the driving force in the west today.

We are as usual waiting.

AbE:

It might be that earning enough to eat might be a driving force in the West today or staying healthy might be a driving force in the West today or being entertained might be a driving force in the West today or getting "Likes" might be a driving force in the West today but where is there ANY evidence that a fear of the left is anything but a delusional aberration?

ANUDDERAbE:

In the US the latest figures I could find show 35% identify as Conservative; 35% as Moderate and 26% as Liberal.

I think that much of the fear that the right-wing conservatives have is losing what they have. Conservative philosophy emphasizes lower taxes for the privileged class. They would much rather pass their gains on to their heirs than be forced(yes forced) to pay out higher taxes to support the poor impoverished masses. I think they are greedy, but I can see their point. Nobody should be forced to do anything like that.

I recently read a book called Dark Age America. It is a chilling and realistic look at the future of humanity (as to what is likely) within the next several hundred years. If I was thinking of perpetuating my legacy and realize I may have to defend my modest gains against the hungry hordes, I too might be scared.

Re: BACK TO THE OP: Prager gave all the information needed
Prager’s piece certainly did not give all the relevant facts. The long-running hate campaign from the Right - which you support - is a major factor. But then you don’t want the full facts to be known.

Makes one wonder how long running/deep the Russian hacking campaign to divide the US has been going. Mind you the conspiracy right wingnuts are such easy targets ...

The only political point I make is that the Left interprets the words of Jesus as arguably Marxist.


You keep saying "arguably" but you never make an argument. An assertion is not an argument.

I don't think you have a clue what Marxism is. You just use it as a swear-word. I have never, ever, in any way, shape or form advocated Marxism. I don't think I have ever made a single comment in favor of Marxism. Even if you did have an argument against Marxism, it would not be an argument against anything I have said.

Socialism is what Jesus taught.

The Bible says they didn't. That's why God had to explain the consequences to them - pain in childbirth, hating snakes, sweaty brows, etc.

Think of how the hungry hordes must feel.

Proposed Change of Title
This topic has experienced considerable drift. Rather than closing the thread and beginning a new one I'd like to just change the title, maybe one something along he lines of, "The Source of Good and Evil." Other proposals welcome, but I will be changing the title soon.
