See, I’m a fixer. I look for problems, I look for inefficiencies, I look for issues and I find solutions. My goal is to produce the best possible outcome in any given situation and to be persuasive enough to get others to accept my ideas and implement them. In fact, that is the essential job of every single person in middle and upper management. The more effective and efficient their operation is, the more profitable it is, the more it grows, the more if succeeds and it’s a never-ending job. However, humanity doesn’t work that way.
Humanity, in large part, is lazy. They want the maximum outcome with the minimum effort. They don’t want to work their way up the ladder, they want to start at the top and when they fail because they didn’t learn the lessons they were supposed to learn on the way up, they point fingers at everyone around them, taking no blame for themselves. This is especially true of the past 50-60 years in the western world where people are no longer allowed to starve in the streets, where everyone has a level of comfort that people in the third world could only dream about, and now, spared from dying of malnutrition and easily-curable disease, they just have their hands out wanting more and more and more.
What people forget, or maybe they don’t understand at all, is that conservatism is what got them where they are. Successful societies are built on conservatism. Liberalism doesn’t come along until after the society is successful, then you get the social leeches and the no-brain “progressives” who are only there because someone built the foundation for them to stand on and pretend that conservatives are evil incarnate because they expect people to get off their asses and work.
Yet that’s exactly what I run into day after day, the idiot liberals who demand that the wealthy hand over their money to the poor because “they don’t need it”. Of course, it’s rarely wealthy liberals doing that. The Internet whiners aren’t the ones writing fat checks to the poor, in fact, they’ve got their own hands out, wanting more, even if they are better off than those in poverty, they aren’t volunteering what they have to help the less fortunate, they’re always volunteering someone else’s money. Give! Give! Give! What? Me? No, of course not me, I meant you! Oh, you want me to go work for the poor, volunteer in a soup kitchen, go build houses with Habitat for Humanity? Sorry, I’m too busy bitching on the Internet! Many radical left liberals are a pox on the ass of humanity.
Isn’t it time we got some social Preparation H and got rid of them?
