The Heart of the Matter

Sarah Palin Vs. Hugo Chavez by Lenny Cacchio

"We don't believe that human nature is perfectible; we're suspicious of government efforts to fix problems because often what it's trying to fix is human nature, and that is impossible. It is what it is. But that doesn't mean that we're resigned to any negative destiny. Not at all. I believe in striving for the ideal, but in realistic confines of human nature...

The opposite of a common-sense conservative is a liberalism that holds that there is no human problem that government can't fix if only the right people are put in charge. Unfortunately, history and common sense are not on its side. We don't trust utopian promises; we deal with human nature as it is."

Sarah Palin

"Those who want to go directly to hell, they can follow capitalism. And those of us who want to build heaven on earth, we will follow socialism."

Hugo Chavez.

"These quotes illustrate the stark contrast between two contradictory worldviews, that of classical conservatism and that of Modernism informed by a heavy dose of the Enlightenment. If you miss Palin’s point, much of the arguments of today’s world, and indeed of the conflicts of the history of Western Civilization, will escape you.

At its core the goal of the left is to bring a utopian kingdom to the world by the efforts of mankind alone. They don't think we need God to do it."

This post goes hand in hand with the one below. Their "heaven on earth" will be hell.
