Yes, you read that correctly. I am going to link gun control to evolution to PROVE that the Left really doesn’t understand their own notion of evolution (Peter, this one’s for you :-) )
In the comment section of another thread, RNL reader, Peter Chung, told me that “my kind” are destined to become extinct because we reject his idea of the model society. OK, let’s look at what he implies is the model society to see whether or not it conforms to the secular humanist notion of evolution (best defined as Darwinism, not evolution).
First, Peter thinks the model society must be “tolerant.” Well, what does he mean by tolerant? That’s easy. I’ll explain in liberalese (i.e. pictures):
Now, if “evolution” operates by random selection and the survival of the fittest, then how is it the Liberal/Progressives think it is “evolution” to circumvent that very process? After all, if the people with guns are better able to force their will on people, therefore, better able to reproduce (never mind that this can include rape), then “evolution” would suggest that THEY are “the fittest” and, therefore, should be the ones to survive. After all, “evolution” assumes that humans are just animals, so “survival” doesn’t really amount to anything more than reproduction. So it is actually a failure of the THEORY of Darwinism to say that we should NOT be armed. After all, if armed people are better able to survive, then we should all be armed. This is actually simple logic based on the Left’s notion of Darwinism.
But let’s assume that we actually CAN consciously direct our own evolution (the foundational assumption upon which ALL of Leftist ideology is actually based — hence the term “progress”). If we can learn from history to direct the evolution of mankind, then we should be looking to the American founders as the model of what society should be. After all, they were the ones who looked to history to design a system in which the individual’s rights and liberties were protected from the ‘non-evolving’ designs of tyranny — in all its many forms. America’s founders “evolved” human government. So why have “Progressives” been trying to undo what the founders did? Wouldn’t that be “devolution?” And why do they attack anyone who questions them or their ideas? Don’t we “evolve” through questioning everything so we can learn enough to make informed, rational decisions? I actually have an answer to this question. Once again, I’ll explain in “liberalese:”
Now, how do we connect this to gun control? Well, the founders — those men who “evolved” human government to the highest state it has ever known and is ever likely to know — said that the people should be armed so that they can resist tyranny WHEN it rears its ugly, regressive head again:
But Progressives have told us that only the government should own weapons. They apparently have forgotten history and, therefore, they are regressing and we should eliminate their seed from our gene pool — for the betterment of the self-directed evolution of society (we are keeping to the liberal/progressive notion of Darwinistic evolution, remember?). Or, it means the Left believes this is the more “evolved” form of human government:
So, we are left with a choice. Is this “evolution” as Peter and his fellow collectivists would have you believe:
Or is THIS:
