Young liberal wisdom; a series of unfortunate beliefs is an attempt to enlighten young people about the deceptive practices of adults. Those who would have them believe lies and propaganda to further their own positions in power start by telling the truth and then twisting the facts into a believable lie.
“The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they’re ignorant; it’s just that they know so much that isn’t so.” – Ronald Reagan
Part I – conservatism is obsolete
“Conservatism is old people’s obsolete beliefs in traditions that they hide behind to justify their selfish greed to keep people from changing for the better. Liberalism is caring about others and helping them to make their lives better with progressive ideas.”
These classic definitions of liberalism and conservatism that applied to them were true in the 19th century when the words first came into use; liberalism is those who believe in God and morality while embracing new technology and advances in science, while conservatism was being set in the old ways and not accepting change to these “newfangled contraptions.” In the 21st century, their meanings are completely different and unrecognizable to anyone who has learned through sixty years of life experience how people think, feel, and act. What used to be called liberalism is now called “classic liberalism” and is identical to the beliefs of people who are now called modern conservative Christians, while modern liberals who embrace “social justice” is just the newest term for socialism and it’s destruction of wealth though tyranny under the guise of “being fair and just.”
Had I been a wise young man I would have realized that every word of that is a lie. “If I knew then what I know now,” is an old saying by people who have learned through a lifetime of experience that what they believed, what they were taught by Leftists when they were young, is wrong.
You will find as you live life that old sayings are not old ideas that are obsolete. They are sign posts made by those who learned to correct path through experience to guide us in what is right. Beside them are similar signs that are placed by the wicked to mislead. It is up to the heart of the reader to understand the truth and follow the path of the righteous.
Teenagers always go through the phase where they believe they know it all, but most realize in their twenties that they don’t know nearly as much as they think. It’s easy to believe you know the answers when you don’t even know the question. The reason why the most immoral of adults choose teens as their primary prey is because they are the most easily duped because of their naiveté, lack of life experience, and their desire to be adults.
This series is the attempt of a young liberal, myself, who grew up and learned that what he was told in his youth was a pack of lies. I grew up being honest to a fault and believing in the honesty of others. As a result I was repeatedly taken for a ride by the likes of Barack Obama, people who spoke reasonably and convincingly making promises they had no intention of keeping, and that I was the naive dupe of deceivers who used me for their own gain.
Having learned about modern conservatism, Christianity, socialism, and liberalism, I also learned from history. What I found was that the Left often changes the name of its ideology to fool young people into believing that they were something new. What I learned was that most people are not honest, that most of them will lie, especially to appease their own egos. I learned that the way of the righteous is narrow and difficult to find and follow. As the Bible says;
“For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it.” – Matthew 7:13
My reason for doing this is simple and found in the simple words of a simple character and greatest hero from the epic work of a great Christian, J.R.R. Tolkien;
“There is good in this world, and it’s worth fighting for.” – Samwise Gamgee, Lord of the Rings
