Letters by a modern St. Ferdinand III about cults

Gab@StFerdinandIII -

Plenty of cults exist - every cult has its 'religious dogma', its idols, its 'prophets', its 'science', its 'proof' and its intolerant liturgy of demands.  Cults everywhere:  Corona, 'The Science' or Scientism, Islam, the State, the cult of Gender Fascism, Marxism, Darwin and Evolution, Globaloneywarming, Changing Climate, Abortion...

Only the media and pop culture would laud Ted Kennedy.

A far left statist becomes a saint.

by StFerdIII

Oh please. A left-wing rich boy dies from a famous family and the entire world stops moving. Jupiter is moved to tears. Zeus is crumpled. Atlas teeters. The media informs us contemptible knaves that Ted Kennedy, a man who thought Communism was a fine idea even as his life attested to the reality that some pigs are a lot more equal than others, was the greatest political leader since Moses – excepting of course their chosen God, the Black Jesus, Rabbi Barack. Liberal-socialist insanity.

The problem with the endless tears and sycophantic hagiographies about Messr Ted is this: Kennedy unlike his brother Jack, was a believer in state power, communal organization and elitist control of the mass. His one saving political grace was this; he supported Israel. But that is about all one can commend about Ted's millenia long career. He was a hard core statist – and there is little joy to celebrate in such a concept.

Kennedy stood for nothing but elitist power.

He preached socialised health care whilst getting the best private care money can buy.

He demanded consistently over a 40 year career various increases in taxes, even as he and his family put most of their fortune offshore and avoided paying their 'fair share'.

He rabidly endorsed enviro-baloney and alternative energy – whilst ensuring that eyesores such as wind turbines would never be erected near any of the Kennedy's palatial estates.

He campaigned for state managed school systems, devoid of competition, beholden to unions and declining in quality and mired in governmental propaganda – even as he and his family went to the best private schools money can purchase.

He was famous in the 1980s for undermining Reagan's belief in American virtue and destiny by clandestinely holding meetings and contacts with Russian agents and the KGB – all the while intoning in public, how proud he was of American power.

He voted countless times to reduce the military and was instrumental in gutting the Clinton administrations military spend in the 1990's – whilst declaiming of course that he supported the troops.

He forecasted defeat in Iraq and did everything he could to ensure that the media was biased against Bush's policy – whilst declaring that he was only concerned for the safety of American soldiers.

He railed against big business and the profit motive even as his career, life and estates were funded and maintained by the same.

He was ambivalent and usually openly hostile towards American history, culture, exceptionalism and traditions, much preferring the soft liberal fascism of European socialism to the cut and thrust and chaos of orthodox liberalism and notions of individuality and responsibility.

Ted Kennedy was in short the opposite of his brother Jack and that is why his ideas are such failures. Ted K was in essence just another power-mongering rich boy, who believed that technocrats should run America and that the hoi-polloi need only follow the diktats of private school graduates who would remake the world into a better and more communal place. The problem for Ted and his ilk is that statism in any disguise always fails. It always distorts, destroys, maims, and usually kills.

Only the US media drunk on the aphrodisiac of modern statism could make Ted Kennedy, a man who spent most his career against American power; against the individual; against the market; against the profit motive, but who perversely benefited from what he deplored, into a saint. It appears that for the American media and its liberal cohort, truth is fiction, falsehoods are facts; and corrupt politico-crats are now Gods.
