Leftism destroys everything, and suburbs are next

There is no greater evil than Leftism. Call it Marxism, Communism, Socialism, Collectivism, Leninism, Stalinism, Maoism, Castroism or Chavezism, call it whatever you like, it kills, destroys, and eradicates everything it touches. It promises equality, and delivers equality of destitution and eventually, equality in slavery to the State. It promises hope, and instead delivers hopelessness. Justice? That is non-existent in the ” Utopian lands”. In place of actual justice people are stripped of liberty and self-determination. And, as this piece by Robert Stacy McCain notes, nothing is safe, because, those suburbs are, inconvenient

One of the basic tasks of the political Left, not only in contemporary America but on a worldwide basis ever since the French Revolution, is to identify those social institutions that are healthy and functional, then ruin them completely, and call this result “reform.” Sometimes millions of people die as a result of the Left’s appetite for “reform” (e.g., collectivization of agriculture in the Soviet Union), but always innocent people are made to suffer on behalf of the allegedly idealistic motives of the self-anointed progressive “reformers.”

Scarcely half a century ago, America’s system of higher education was the envy of the world, but that was before the Left instituted the kind of “reform” that produces unemployed Gender Studies majors saddled with tens of thousands of dollars in student-loan debt for degrees that don’t qualify them for any gainful employment. If you criticize the Left’s hegemonic influence in academia, of course, you will be accused of being “anti-intellectual,” as though leftists have a natural right to define the purpose, content, and structure of intellectual endeavor; anyone who doesn’t share the Left’s values is thereby disqualified from participation in academia. Our universities now exist not to provide young people with useful knowledge and career skills, but rather to indoctrinate them with the Left’s destructive belief system and train them to become political activists. Anyone who dissents from this agenda — even such eminent scholars as University of Pennsylvania Law Professor Amy Wax — becomes persona non grata on campus. As Thomas Sowell once remarked, “The next time some academics tell you how important diversity is, ask how many Republicans there are in their sociology department.”

And, my friends what they did to education, is what they will do to suburban living

The president announced on Twitter on June 30 that he was “studying the AFFH housing regulation” he described as “having a devastating impact” on suburbs, and declared that Biden wanted to make these regulations “MUCH WORSE.” Many were mystified by Trump’s sudden interest in housing regulations, but it appears the president was inspired by an article by Stanley Kurtz in National Review: “Biden and Dems Are Set to Abolish the Suburbs.” In his article, Kurtz explained the political significance of housing policy:

The suburbs are the swing constituency in our national elections. If suburban voters knew what the Democrats had in store for them, they’d run screaming in the other direction. Unfortunately, Republicans have been too clueless or timid to make an issue of the Democrats’ anti-suburban plans. It’s time to tell voters the truth.

I’ve been studying Joe Biden’s housing plans, and what I’ve seen is both surprising and frightening. I expected that a President Biden would enforce the Obama administration’s radical AFFH (Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing) regulation to the hilt. That is exactly what Biden promises to do. By itself, that would be more than enough to end America’s suburbs as we’ve known them, as I’ve explained repeatedly here at NRO.

What surprises me is that Biden has actually promised to go much further than AFFH. Biden has embraced Cory Booker’s strategy for ending single-family zoning in the suburbs and creating what you might call “little downtowns” in the suburbs. Combine the Obama-Biden administration’s radical AFFH regulation with Booker’s new strategy, and I don’t see how the suburbs can retain their ability to govern themselves. It will mean the end of local control, the end of a style of living that many people prefer to the city, and therefore the end of meaningful choice in how Americans can live. Shouldn’t voters know that this is what’s at stake in the election? [Emphasis added.]

Please go read it all. This is what millions need to know

  1. I am not so sure endless Suburbs should be the American Dream! I find them cookie cutter, sterile environments that do not nurture a smarter generation, instead they nurture bored, spoiled kids who for the most part lack motivation. There are exceptions so don’t shoot the messenger! However the comments about Leftism are right on! Leftism has no practical alternative!

    1. WEll, I am not the biggest fan of Burbs either, proud to be able to live outside any big city on a few acres. Of course, the left would likely rule such behavior out as well
