Another very insightful and interesting article, Pat. The type of leader they go for is very revealing: Kennedy, Clinton, Obama. Reek of slickness & style over substance. And their spokesmen in chief - Stewart & Colbert, not to mention Hollywood.

With each new left wing devastation unleashed on the world, their response from is predictably little more than an "oh well. The (not "our") experiment didn't work in that instance because of x. Therefore our idea wasn't truly given a chance. But we'll simply try it again elsewhere and hopefully x won't reappear" (where x = factors that can never be removed). I think their attitude derives partly from their own stupidity (look at the quality of leftist posts on this site) and partly due to the religious ('mystical is perhaps more accurate) nature of Leftism.

The War Against Achievement

This is the reason Dems are anti school choice and have so many anti-family policies, leading to a collapse in achievement and therefore as Sowell pointed out, entrenched power for the state.
Seni Gilli comes across as an oily used car salesman. (whispering) "but wait, there's more!.." The instinct is to hold on to your wallet and run.

Conservative Parents, Left-Wing Children

"when those children are adults, they will make their own choices. Raising a principled, independent child is a good thing, nothing poignant about that" I don't think the poignancy is that hard to get. I think it's natural for parents the world over to be saddened when their children adopt polar opposite views on core issues than them, whether rightly or wrongly. It's a no brainer really. What makes it particularly so is when schools & universities veer from their stated core function which is to teach the course and encourage opposing points of view as opposed to indoctrinating by most participants who would rather maintain their polarized, factional view of the world, shouting "Hooray for our side!"
Could it be that the Northern Democrats were right in 1860? That the black man was not worth going to war over? If back then they had looked into a crystal ball and had foreseen this day, the Dems would have been even more vociferous against freeing the black man in the south than they already were. And history notes how vociferous they were, to the extent of lynching blacks and white republicans.
The white left & the MSM, nay the whole Western press, have bent over backwards to make this guy succeed. A 2year old would have succeeded with that help. But not Obama. He is Exhibit A as to the perils of Affirmative Action. And far from healing race relations, he's amplified them. Can we have a black Republican please to show him how it's done.

Had Obama been white, he would have been hammered by even many on the Left a long time ago. When Jon Stewart skewered Obama/care the other day, that's only because things got so bad that even the Daily Show, which claims to "expose political spin", could not ignore the "spinning of this t*** ", even if criticising the Affirmative Action prez was the price of doing so. Shows how abominable this thing is.

The vast majority of Indians have long fallen in to the same trap as the vast majority of African Americans, falling for Leftist dogma about how hopeless they are through the "(not so) subtle bigotry of low expectations". And their culture has been likewise castrated.

Wonderful article. The Left must be incensed that this African American is the epitome of intelligence, insight and common sense. You can almost hear the Left's inner voice: get back in to the ghetto where we can keep you miserable, dependent on welfare and then vote Dem for life.
