Too Much Pride Might Not Be a Bad Thing

Too much pride makes smart, but haughty individuals and organizations do some down right stupid things.

Look at the actions of our current president, condemning the Supreme Court Judges and challenging their authority, at a time when it is most advantageous to gain their support. Instead of putting on the velvet glove and schmoozing them, he antagonizes and threatens them.

Some would call these the actions of some one stricken mad, but I contend it’s the actions of an egotist, instead. He hates the fact that he has an impediment to his agenda, and is basically throwing a temper tantrum. The president is not the only one who has made questionable choices, lately, we can’t overlook the GSA, or the recent scandal with the Secret Service. It’s an ideology that is extremely toxic, and the real victims in this scenario are the taxpayers. I think I’ll call this movement “Activists Gone Wild.” Instead of flashing everyone for Mardi Gras beads and shaking their “money-makers,” they’re flashing their money rolls and indulging their egos, by being sucked up to.

They are letting their agenda hang out and we need to show them they need to put it away. After all we have been the ones feeding their now bloated ego.

In this year the anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic, I can’t think if a more symbolic iconoclast, than the ship and what it stood for.

It was supposed to be the epitome of achievement, at least that was what the P.R. department claimed at any rate. Instead it will be remembered as the embodiment of mankind’s arrogance, and pride. Take the poor decisions made that made an already dire tragedy into an even worse disaster, that ended the lives of over a thousand men, women, and children. Good sense was abandoned at a pivotal time with the choice by the directors to cut the number of lifeboats to a level that wouldn’t even satisfy the needs on board if it was half full.

Also if people want to have a clear understanding about what class warfare REALLY is, than look no further than the actions on board. During the evacuation of the vessel, the doors to the third class level was locked. I can’t imagine that being tried in modern times (at least not as far as the media would report anyhow).

Fast forward to the present, another boat is hit. Aside from the poor decisions by the Captain, this time the disaster was handled much better (there were a lot more advantages in this episode, but still it was handled with more consideration for the passengers and crew).

I’m digressing, but I’m sure you see my point. It’s a manner of arrogance that cause such faulty thinking, that lead to such blunders in human history.

My last example is of our own, Eric Holder. He made a statement concerning the Second Amendment, he was reported saying he wants to, “really brainwash people into thinking about guns in a vastly different way.” The operative word here being BRAINWASH. Really, Attorney General? Brainwashing? Isn’t that the same kind of thing that the Third Reich used to do. I think Stalin indorsed that kind of philosophy as well.

That’s definitely up there with their intimidation tactics. All the individuals represented in this article have one thing in common: they are all bullies, plain and simple. You don’t want to do what we say? Too bad, you are going to anyway. Actually with the current authoritative regime, that’s not true. They aren’t satisfied with your obedience, they want you to conform to their doctrine.

It all goes back to the simple fact they feel moral superiority. They know better than you what is best for you, despite the fact they don’t even know your name. In the end, you are nothing but a number to them.
