Tell them to stick THIS in your ‘Privilege’ knapsack.
It has been called the ‘Victim Olympics’. The habit of the Left to clamor for first prize in who gets to be the biggest victim. The hardest done by.
You’d think they’d each been dealt worse hands than Helen Keller.
(If you’re too young to know the name, by all means, Google it.)
Nobody promised an easy life.
Ok, well that’s not exactly true, is it?
But anyone who DID promise life on ‘easy street’ was lying (for their own reasons). Or they were setting you up for failure.
What ‘reasons of their own’ you ask?
If you are dependent on government to solve your problems, you will give them greater and greater power over individual decision making. More laws. More rules. More programs. More red tape.
And there are a LOT of people who crave that power… people who don’t mind you being an eternal victim so they can pretend to be the ‘white knight’ riding in to rescue the poor wretches.
And if you are a GROUP, rather than an individual, you can buy into narratives about struggle against other groups, rather than measure your would-be leaders by their actual plans, promises, and any failures to keep them.
And of course, they’re counting on it.
But go ahead. Blame someone else for where you stand in life. Keep telling yourself you’ve got a harder life than Helen Keller.
It’s much easier than taking charge, taking risks and creating new opportunities.
We leave you with the parting words of Samuel Adams:
If you love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.
“May your chains set lightly upon you.”
In case they didn’t explain that in school… he means that anyone with that sort of thinking is a slave already — in their thoughts and deeds.
