I can’t help it: I’m feeling especially ‘snarky’ today, but that’s no reason not to declare and celebrate “National Pick on an Idiot Day.” So, if this offends you, at least I was honest enough to admit it and warn you beforehand. Now, I’m calling dibs on our resident commie idiot, Karl.
Karl has told us there is no such thing as free will. Everything we do is just a react to outside stimuli. However, there can’t be any rhyme or reason to how we react to these outside stimuli because Karl has also told us that there is no such thing as natural law. Well, no, not quite: Karl does allow for natural laws over inanimate objects such as the laws of gravity and motion. He just doesn’t believe in any sort of natural law that governs human behavior. I suppose this is why he says there is no such thing as morality, either. After all, if there is no natural law, then we’re all just animals, and there is nothing wrong with the zebra eating the lion, so how could there be anything wrong with what humans do?
Now, I find this a rather odd set of beliefs for Karl to have, especially since his driving force in life is to “organize the proletariat” so they can seize control over the means of production and establish a more just or ‘fair’ distribution of goods. I find Karl’s beliefs to be odd because, if he really believed all the stuff he claims to believe, he wouldn’t notice that he has less than the Capitalist. I mean, the Zebra doesn’t notice the lion has a furrier mane, does it? Nor would Karl think there is anything wrong with the Capitalist having more stuff. The zebra doesn’t think the lion is wrong for trying to eat her, she just knows she needs to stay away from hungry lions. So, if Karl really believes what he says, he would be happy with his lot in life.
But Karl is not happy. Karl wants to “organize” the workers to follow him or some other Marxist into this workers’ paradise he envisions. But this implies that Karl does see the distribution of material goods as a moral issue, and that people do have free will. If they didn’t, why would he even think it possible to organize the workers? If we are all just organisms responding to outside stimuli that has no governing law, he wouldn’t be able to organize the workers because whatever he tried would have a different effect on every human (remember, no governing law over the reaction to stimuli). But then, why even try to organize? If Karl is right, organizing the workers to overthrow the Capitalist would make as much sense as organizing the zebras to overthrow the lions. Do we see Karl out on the plains of the Serengeti organizing the zebras? Nope! Why? Because Karl knows he’s full of it.
The truth is, Karl is a lazy, envious, covetous and cowardly thief. He wants what others have, but he is too lazy to go earn it himself. He is too cowardly to take it himself, so he sends the government to take it for him. And he wants to feel good about all of this so he designs this lunatic ideology of his (or, in this case, he follows the one Marx created for the same reasons) to convince others that he is the ‘better person.’ BUNK! The truth is, Karl is trying to rationalize his laziness, covetousness, cowardice and desire to steal in such a way that he can claim to be both moral and altruistic.
Karl, life isn’t fair. You know what else? You can’t make it fair. You know why? Because natural law says it can’t be fair? And you know why that is? Because, if life were fair, there could be no natural selection, hence, no ‘evolution,’ and therefore, no life. Which brings us to yet another piece of rational evidence against your Marxist model.
