Was listening to Glenn Beck on his national radio program today. The talk was about America’s move towards socialism. He is suggesting some “entity” that Obama is a part of!! is trying to drive America into communism. Glenn Beck calls the entity as “Progressivism” – acknowledging the well intensions and the fact that these truly seek progress…… But that is not the point of this thread- I just wanted to give you a bit of background…
A mature lady from an ex communist country from Eastern Europe called and made the most interesting comment about the well intensions and how things always end. She called the socialists/communists as “Equalizers” – people who have the nobility to want to make sure all members of human societies end up as equals with equal rights.
She said: The equalizers always fail to equalize themselves.
For me this said it all – but at the same time I must say, us Iranians are having it even worst. What the Islamists seek has no nobility – what they seek is neither equality nor progress of any kind.
