Imagine if you will a little league baseball game being umpired by our new Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor. The ball streaks from the pitchers hand straight through the heart of the strike zone. All turn to the umpire for the call and are witness to the following. “Well young man, of which racial and economic demographic do you belong? Is that a new bat or a hand me down? You say the player on the other team playing your position out weighs you by 10 pounds and has a higher batting average?… BALL!!
Dr. Sanity has a post up today reflecting on leftists or as they are more commonly known these days, progressives, and their inability to see human nature as it is rather than how they would wish it to be. She hits the nail on the head with this excerpt.
“The squalid utopian fantasies of socialism, communism–or any variant of Marxism for that matter–appeals primarily to people who refuse to acknowledge their own human imperfections, and hence their own capacity for evil. They don’t want to admit it, but those who are drawn to the leftist view of the world, tend to see themselves as superior; above all the boring, ordinary human beings around them; more virtuous, more compassionate, smarter; and of course, much better qualified to decide what’s best for lesser beings like you and me.”
