socialist mindset versus moderate mindset
a short briefing document
|beta release -
this page is under development, I am releasing it early in an unfinished state due to current societal pressures.
|Socialist mindset versus moderate mindset is one of
a series of documents analysing dysfunctional social, or group, behaviour in modern society.
This document provides a counterpoint to Socialist religions, and also relates to Logicians, 'logic' and madness.

There is a cast of mind that differs between those of the Left and of the Right.
Without balance there is no sanity.
Balance requires intelligence, not dogma.
Often Socialists believe that 'democracy' is a dirty word.
National Socialist Adolf identified three 'vices': democracy, pacifism, and internationalism.
They are part of the cult religion of national socialism.
International socialists call national socialists 'right wing'.
A vast culture-changing technology, more disruptive than the printing press, is shaking the foundations of modern societies and long-established cultural settlements. Society is going to have to adjust, and that process will require patience and needs the time to evolve.
Currently (late 2016), it is very clear cut in the USA, are we to be with or without
a constitution (or some substitute thereof)?
And in both cases, betwixt there are also a few venal, confused and blundering politicians.
Catholic doctrine does not favour any particular form of government. Catholic doctrine is embedded in much thinking on the European continent even when unconscious.
Catholic doctrine insists on something UK law would have regarded as 'equity', until Socialists started messing with the likes of the Magna Carta and national independence.
Drones on the Right argue that redistribution is only done by the Left - it is not.
Some of the Right has tended to take up a position of unthinking opposition to anything associated with socialism. This is not surprising, as socialism is one of the worst catastrophes ever to hit humanity.
One of the results of this has been to make a false confusion of redistribution with socialism.
The answer to most of that problem lies in a citizen's wage. President Richard Nixon tried to introduce a citizen's wage, way back in 1970, over 40 years ago. This was killed by the Left.
All the indications are that, in Britain, the Cameron administration and its successor are now preparing the ground for rectifying the problem there.
