Dot-To-Dot: The Modern Day Socialism Graph

Since we are visual creatures, many of us growing up with "connect-the-dots" puzzles to see the whole picture...

Under the "Change ethical standard", destroying of religious and family tradition should be noted as well. You have any dots to add?

From Jeffrey Lord @ The American Spectator:

Credibility shredded from Boston to Benghazi.

Jihad has blown up The Liberal Utopia.

The visionary liberal land of political and social perfection.

President Obama is not happy — and he isn’t alone.

You know the place.

• The Liberal Utopia is a land where gun background checks prevent mass murder.

• The Liberal Utopia is a land where Islamic fundamentalists have changed their perception of America because the President travels to Muslim nations to give lovely speeches, believes that the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and elsewhere is a wonderful sign of an Arab Spring, and refuses to use the word “terrorist” whether his administration is investigating Ft.

The search for this Liberal Utopia has been going on in this country since at least 1932 and in fact before that when one keeps going on back to Woodrow Wilson’s progressives and beyond to the late 19th century when the progressive movement began to gain political steam with the likes of William Jennings Bryan and a whole host of other if lesser known figures.

The idea is always the same. To quote Levin: “Utopianism is the ideological and doctrinal foundation for statism.”

Or, to simplify: if only Americans are made to do X, The Perfect Society will manifest.

Read Lord's full article. It's long. LOTS of "dots"...

    Liberal Utopia is TV's The West Wing, which Rush described as "fiction, the only place where liberalism works."
