Until we decide to grow a spine and stand up for what we believe in and walk away from the politically correct and the weak willed, the cowards and the compromisers, we will never achieve real success in any area of our lives, unless we decide to join the ranks of political prostitutes who will say and do anything to get into power and stay there. Situational ethics are for those who refuse to take a stand, the gutless fence sitters who will sell their souls for a bowl of poisoned soup.
Ayn Rand wrote in Atlas Shrugged, “The man who refuses to judge, who neither agrees nor disagrees, who declares that there are no absolutes and believes that he escapes responsibility, is the man responsible for all the blood that is now spilled in the world. Reality is an absolute, existence is an absolute, a speck of dust is an absolute and so is a human life. Whether you live or die is an absolute. Whether you have a piece of bread or not, is an absolute. Whether you eat your bread or see it vanish into a looter’s stomach, is an absolute.
“There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil. The man who is wrong still retains some respect for truth, if only by accepting the responsibility of choice. But the man in the middle is the knave who blanks out the truth in order to pretend that no choice or values exist, who is willing to sit out the course of any battle, willing to cash in on the blood of the innocent or to crawl on his belly to the guilty, who dispenses justice by condemning both the robber and the robbed to jail, who solves conflicts by ordering the thinker and the fool to meet each other halfway.
“In any compromise between food and poison, it is only death that can win. In any compromise between good and evil, it is only evil that can profit. In that transfusion of blood which drains the good to feed the evil, the compromise is the transmitting rubber tube. Indecisiveness.”
The world is sliding into the laps of those who don’t care about pleasing the crowds or being “Mr. Nice Guy.” They are manipulating the rest of us into accepting their wishes, and it is obvious to all to see. When you’re morte scared of being called racist, bigotted, unfair, capitalist, greedy, or nasty, you’re lining up to be slaughtered. Affirmative Action, multiculturalism, environmentalism, the reversal and distortion of male/female roles, situational ethics, liberation theology – do you think these were brought about by accident or by design? They were carefully crafted to weaken and destroy the strong producers by raising up the weak, the evil, and the parasites.
Stand up for what you believe in while you still can, and before you live in the police state as predicted in Orwell’s 1984. And before you have no self respect, power, or hope left.
