It’s time to have another crack at trying to help our resident Communist find his way out of the darkness and into the light. Here is Comrade Karl’s latest:
Natural law doesn’t exists. Law is not material and unchangeable. The idea that there is a natural law and somehow applies to everyone is ridiculous. Natural anything is ridiculous. The only laws that do exist in nature are the laws of motion, thermodynamics and gravity, those truly cannot be broken. Natural laws and rights on the other hand have been broken time and again, and sometimes don’t even exist, which means natural law is neither a law or “natual.” Joe’s and many other right-winger’s, feelings about right and wrong does not equal natural law.
If you agree with Karl, let me explain why he is so wrong. Suppose I jump in a plane, take off and declare that I have just proven the law of gravity doesn’t exist. Would you accept my assertion? If not, then why do you accept Karl’s: it’s the same assertion? Here, let me explain my illustration:
If I take off in a plane, I would appear to be defying gravity. If I am ignorant of the Natural Law of gravity, or too arrogant to accept its absolute rule over the matter in this universe, I might fool myself into believing that my flying “proves” that gravity is not an unbreakable law. If I continue in my denial of objective reality, I might conclude that this then means there cannot be such a thing as Natural Law – after all, I just abolished the law of gravity when I took to the air. But have I altered the law of gravity in any way? NO! I am still held to the floor of the plane by gravity, and, when I run out of fuel, my plane will crash to the ground because of gravity. So my conclusion that I have changed the law of gravity and that this means there is no such thing as natural law is nothing more than self-delusion brought on by the improper application of logic (i.e. mistakes and/or abuse of logic).
The same problem exists with all economic systems that derive their origin from Marx. Marx based his entire ideology on fundamentally flawed reasoning. It’s just that socialism/Communism takes a little longer to crash to the ground. As long as they have other peoples’ money, they continue to fly. If they can fly for a generation or two, then people might start to accept the lie that they have altered the Natural Law of human interaction and, thus, prove that Natural law doesn’t exist. However, once these systems run out of other peoples’ money, they all – every one – crash to the ground. In other words, Natural Law reasserts itself. The problem then becomes the Marxist’s inability to admit mistake and accept objective reality. Instead, he re-commits to his scheming and insists that the problem is with someone or something else: he was sabotaged or his ideas were not tried on a large enough scale. The Marxist’s self-delusion prohibits him from seeing and accepting objective reality, and that reality is that Natural Law does exist.
Natural Law does exist, and when people try to act outside it by mistake or arrogance, it eventually reasserts itself. It’s just that, sometimes, it takes a while to run out of fuel.
