Anti-American Graffiti: Marxist Scribblings Sighted in Suburban Orange County

Here's the writing on the restroom wall at Barnes and Nobles at the Irvine Spectrum, found this weekend. Recall last year Gallup found that a 61 percent majority of progressives had a positive image of socialism. And here's another example in real life. Remember Marx's exhortation: "Workers of the world unite." The Marxian system is built on the increasing immiseration of labor. The graffiti implies that no one can get rich without exploiting workers, that is, it's impossible to be entrepreneurial without exploitation, and hence the rejection of the foundation of the capitalist free-enterprise system. It's fundamentally anti-American, as is all progressivism, for as an ideology it rejects the exceptionalism that built the nation to world preponderance, instead invoking the state-socialist model of the stagnant European welfare states, if not the murderous totalitarianism of Stalin. Either way, the Democrat Party's 20th-century socialist model is dragging us down, which is exactly what progressives want.

Socialism Graffiti

RELATED: At New York Times, "Obama Tax Plan Would Ask More of Millionaires" (via Digby and Memorandum), and Washington Post, "Vast majority of tax breaks go to households."

Progressive-ism is a cancer that must be defeated at all costs. It does not matter which party a progressive calls home, they are equally dangerous.

My answer would be "MINE, you lazy, worthless, dreadlocked, sloppy little son of a bitch."

Well, if I were to guess the location of that graffiti, it looks like a plumbing access panel beside the urinals in a public restroom.

I think that says something. :)

Yeah, Dana. Back there by the handicap restroom, in fact.

Human nature is inherently conflicted. We have paradoxical, contrary desires, and attempting to achieve them will invariably result in an imperfect world. We wish for both adventure and security, two goals that are inherently in conflict. The result will always be a degree of disappointment. That is the human condition. St. Augustine and Thomas Aquinas would recognize this as a result of The Fall, the Biblical fall of Adam and Eve from the garden of Eden. They were cast out of Eden, and we are living in a world that is no longer perfect. It is subject to the curse of God. This requires man to labor for his food and suffer a life on a planet afflicted with flaws such as pestilence, earthquake and, ultimately, death.

Barack Obama and other Leftists reject this worldview. They believe that we can get back to Eden or create Heaven here on earth. We can, via our own efforts, achieve this not through prayer, patience, hope and faith but through government. The State will be our Lord and Saviour.

The human condition, with its contradictory wishes seeks satisfaction where it can never find it. Here on earth, here and now with material goods. These are seen as realistic by those who reject a Biblical worldview. T hey scoff at notions such as the Bible, but they are also scoffing at the Greek philosophers such as Plato who recognized the temporary nature of the material world. That car that you look to for joy will rust, and your body will age. The second law of thermodynamics is in play ever since the fall of man in the Garden. Entropy is a law: order becomes disorder; things wear out, they fade. There is no hope in the temporary.
