An Infantile Leader

We live in a ridiculous time. Yes, there are many awesome things going on in the world of technology and we have access to more information and more options and more everything than in any time in human history. However, at the same time as we have all these amazing things, we have an astounding lack of access to quality leaders willing to step into the limelight to push our country in the right direction. It is a wonder to me that we are still able to function in this crazy time.

I simply don’t understand how we’ve come to the point of having leaders who are so old that they can’t even function on their own strength. Our current President is simply a talking piece for the radical left and has never really been in control of anything. His own history shows that he isn’t particularly interested in the agenda that he has been forced to accept, but his desire to be President trumped his own morality, so there he sits in the White House as a puppet to those who have more sinister goals.

Among these are the extreme plans to attempt to close the supposed “racial wealth gap”, a ridiculous plan to try and life up certain groups of people out of economic difficulty by spending money giving them a handout rather than a hand up. You see, that’s all the government can ever really do: take money from one group to spend it somewhere else. Real economic prosperity comes from those who actually create jobs, not checks from the government.

The problem is that people are easily enticed by the trojan horse that is free money. This isn’t specific to one group. I would never label any particular ethnic group as lazy because they accept no strings attached funding from Uncle Sam. Any of us can fall victim to that. The stimulus checks of 2020 are a testament to the fact that laziness and greed are endemic to all human beings.

This is where the evil of far left radicalization really sets in. These people don’t even know the horrible things they’re doing in an effort to “help people out”. They apparently never learned the concept that “you can give a man a fish and he eats for a day; teach a man to fish and he eats for a lifetime.” If you haven’t heard this before, it simply means that giving someone something for free takes care of them for a bit, but if you want them to find success for life you have to actually teach them to get what they need on their own.

Human beings are always looking for the path of least resistance, though, so it is not in our nature to seek the hard path on our own. That particular method is usually forced on us because no one else is going to do it for us. We have to get our own food, make our own money, find our own place to live, and any other number of things that are our own responsibility to resolve. They are hard things to deal with, so when someone comes along offering to take that load off our shoulders, we are naturally willing to jump at the opportunity to be lazy.

Who do we blame for this situation? Not the groups of people willing to take the hand out. It is our natural compulsion to do so. If not the people receiving the benefits, then there is only one other option: those who are giving them out. It is our leadership that is failing to provide an environment that is ripe for people to thrive and they are directly responsible for the situation we now find ourselves in. A lack of any sense of morality combined with unlimited greed for power has left us with a group of people who are incentivized to create victims rather than citizens.

It is long past time for Americans to stop placing our faith in these incompetent people and start turning away from this centralized form of government. We excel so much more when each of us is able to do what is best in the unique situations we find ourselves in. There are simply too many people for a “one size fits all” mentality, and the sins of the past are far enough behind us that they are no longer an excuse for lack of performance. It’s time to get off our butts and start getting to work.

What do you think of handouts? How about the current administration? Do you like your money going to people who aren’t doing anything to earn it? How much time has to pass before the bad things in our past are no longer an excuse for failure? At some point, we need an awakening in our society that says we will no longer put up with those who refuse to put in the effort, as well as a rejection of those who place their own power and influence over the good of the people they are supposed to be serving.
