There’s an old saying, “If you make people think they are thinking, they will love you. If you make people REALLY think, they will hate you.” Especially Liberals. They think they know it all.
Oh, they know a lot of “stuff”… it’s just that all that they know “ain’t so”.
In Thomas Friedman’s book, “The World Is Flat,” he talks about how people stand in long lines and buy tickets from scalpers to see Britney Spears. Yet, in China, they stand in long lines and scalp tickets to hear Bill Gates speak. Friedman makes this point to question American values and priorities.
I make the point to illustrate the lack of knowledge on the part of Liberals.
Britney helps us escape reality; so does The Bachelor, The Bachelorette, Dancing With The Stars, and yes, even Donald Trump’s Celebrity Apprentice.
Great innovators such as Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Frederick Douglas, Henry Ford and, for those of you who want to think, Nikola Tesla, helped us invent new horizons. Even though Bill Gates and Steve Jobs are noted Liberals, when it came to capitalism they did something right. Even a broken clock is correct twice a day.
Other great minds have helped chart new horizons, but nothing of truly outstanding note ever came from the likes of Liberal, Progressive and Communist minds like the losers Karl Marx, Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Barbara Boxer, Maxine Waters, Sheila Jackson-Lee, and so many others of their ilk.
Why do we, at first, condemn those who give us new “realities” and frontiers? Because when we are challenged to “think” (and when Liberals are challenged to think) they (and we) become…
Thinking and having thoughts are two different processes. Thoughts are the process of organizing the current knowledge and experience you have acquired to come up with ideas about your present or future situation. Thinking, on the other hand, requires you to envision that which you have to think of or experience…
The dilemma is that thinking forces you to consider possibilities for which you do not know it all and you don’t have it all figured out and thus creates confusion. For Liberals, it creates TREMENDOUS confusion.
Too often, leaders avoid confusion because it makes them look insecure when they do not know the answers. They appear to be lacking confidence in themselves in their circumstances…
…sort of like our present dimwits in charge of the District of Criminals.
Since we are taught that confused people lack confidence, we don’t consider that confusion could be the pathway to brilliance. We don’t even consider that there are tools that empower us to navigate through confusion.
So, we Americans go about our daily lives looking up to misfits as our role models and people who entertain us and make us “comfortably numb” in our stupor. When people make us think that we are thinking we love them. That is because they meet us where we are – our current reality – and ask us to stretch it just enough to make us proud. But when smart people force us to think, we hate them. It causes us to be uncomfortable: it forces us out of our intellectual comfort zones… something that the fools in Washington, D.C. don’t do too often, or often enough.
Nikola Tesla promulgated the theory of wireless technology in the early 1900s. The scientific world called him a fool. They said if you send out a wireless signal, it would continue into outer space for infinity and get lost. They believed a wireless signal could not travel around the earth. For the scientific community, their belief was their reality. And they lived it as if it were a fact.
What reality do you hold? Where would society be if we were more open to the new realities of inventors?
Step out of your comfort zone and “think outside the box” and think that which you have never thought. DREAM! You will be amazed at the possibilities that are hidden in plain sight.
