Teaching a man to fish
…it turns out, is no less true a principle than is teaching an enormous continent to fish.
Which is to say, progressive altruism is a myth and beyond that, a deeply damaging notion.
Note the ten thousand pound bombshell Sirolli unloads at 10:10.
I find this all the more remarkable because it arrives by way of the Enlightened Progressive Class itself, presented on what is largely their stage. Further, the presenter speaks from the pain of experience and having won that experience the hard way, points out the bullshit of the usual alternative, as he puts it, which is to swamp the system — any system it touches — with “progress”.
With thought, behavior, and systems alien to the human mind and soul.
Conventional wisdom instructs that we shouldn’t chalk up to corruption what’s actually incompetence. I challenge that assertion more and more these days. I suggest that the ignorance of uninvestigated progressivism is no less a willful character defect than is the dysfunction of the uninvestigated life. All politics is local and in a real sense, are all corrupt.
