Life Against Globalism
Human Existence is pre-Political
If spontaneity is the spice of life, what does this mean for rigid radical ideologues, whose life is a scripted charade, essentially a life not lived?
Twenty-first century moral, cultural, social, and political reality is dominated by leftism’s appearances-as-reality. This is the lamentable legacy of liberalism. What alternatives are life left with today than to turn inward and cultivate itself in spite of the life-robbing, totalitarian conditions that stifle it?
Life shuns automatism because life satiates itself through the vital experience of differentiation. On the other hand, Marxist ideology is anathema to life because it stagnates man’s ability to experience reality on sincere, apolitical terms.
The Nuclear Family and Spontaneity
One inherent strength of the traditional family is that children and their parents build a bond that enables them to trust their eyes and ears. Seeing and hearing is genuinely believing, a form of pre-political appropriation of reality that conscientious parents instill in their children. This is truly a matter of life and death.
Seeing and listening to the demands that objective reality makes on us makes for contented and well-grounded persons. This is the foundation of a healthy social, cultural and moral order. What is society, if not the coming together of individual persons?
As pre-political, human existence naturally safeguards itself from danger.
Once human beings find themselves in society, the greatest danger they encounter is plasticity, fakeness, and the lure of appearances-as-reality that damage the human psyche. That is ⏤ appearances that try to impose themselves on a person’s ability to decipher reality through the exercise of seeing and hearing. Life-as-appearance is what collectivization promotes.
This is why leftism is fueled by hypocrisy.
Spontaneity, A Day at the Beach
On a recent family vacation to Miami Beach, I had the opportunity to talk with many tourists who were visiting the area. For the most part, while on vacation, even people who embrace appearances over reality tend to become freer to experience life in the absence of rigid social-political conditions imposed on them through societal appearances and hypocrisy that pose as reality.
One of the tourists I talked with was a young man of about thirty years of age. The conversation turned to state-sanctioned crime in New York City and throughout the United States. He told me that he was going to move from Queens to Long Island. He said he could no longer take the crime in New York City and the radical ideologues responsible for it. He said he fears for his life: “In Long Island,” he told me, “it is slightly easier to get a concealed firearms license.”
The young man made perfect sense. He lamented that current social-political conditions in New York City left him no other alternative. This is only one example of leftism’s artificiality and the real-world destruction of spontaneity, which as a consequence, destroys innocence and beauty, and law and order. How can life flourish if one has to be looking over our shoulders all the time?
Sitting on the beach, I watched the strong surf crashing on the shore, the blue umbrella sky, and people enjoying themselves in the sun. People appeared to be relaxed. The onshore wind created rip currents that kept the lifeguards, police boats, and jet skis busy; several beachgoers required assistance. This reminded me that spontaneity must be tempered with responsibility.
Next to my family sat a middle-aged Argentinian couple. We began talking about the surf. The conversation turned to Argentina’s bankrupted economy and the massive, albeit unnecessary, inflation in the United States under the Biden regime. They told me it is more expensive to travel to some of the other 22 provinces in Argentina besides their home province than to travel to Miami, Florida. The conversation meandered, from the communist Castro regime in Cuba and the Argentinian butcher, Ernesto Che Guevara, to international (globalist) communism, and its new-found home in America under the Obama and Biden globalist regimes.
The couple told me that their grown children could not make ends meet in socialist Argentina, which they predict will soon go the way of bankrupted socialist Venezuela.
Their children have filed paperwork to come to America.
The beauty of spontaneity is that it fosters honest discourse.
Consequently, goodwill flourishes when we converse with sentient, thoughtful people. Our lively conversation was predicated on our ability to decipher reality based on what our eyes and ears can easily confirm, not the politically correct narrative created by ideological spin doctors.
When they left, I returned to my New York Post.
Unlike the pretentiously leftist, woke New York Times, a newspaper that gives the appearance of seriousness, but which is devoid of substance that speaks to human reality as working people experience it, the Post dares to expose the social-political and moral carnage that leftist bureaucrats create. I will always take my chances with honesty over pretense and the manipulation of truth.
I took solace in Miranda Levine’s column on the double standard treatment of President Trump and Hunter Biden’s incriminating laptop computer. She is one of America’s premier investigative journalists; Levine is a reliable source of information for people who sincerely want to engage with the sorry social-political reality that life under a leftist regime subjects its citizens to.
On a not much lighter note, I read Phil Mushnick’s column, also in the New York Post. Mushnick is a sports writer who concentrates on baseball, football, and basketball. The beauty of Mushnick’s Equal Time column is that he concentrates on the relation of sports to culture; the debasement of human values as these are manifest in sports. Mushnick does not apologize when he tells his readers that, as society goes, so goes sports.
Staring at the white caps that the wind blew onshore; I thought about the unnecessary suffering that social-political malice – incompetence can be forgiven – forces upon the life of people who just want to live life the way that life is meant to be enjoyed: as pre-political contentment.
