Claims Leftists Make: Government Control is Better than Freedom?
Men are women? Leftists produce a stream of false claims.
This piece is boring and ugly because it consists almost entirely of lies. But we try to make two things clear.
1. Almost all of the claims that leftists make are false.
2. We, the right, need to understand, with certainty and clarity, why the leftists make those false claims.
This is the first of five pieces wherein we try to find the one truest answer to the question, Why do the leftists make these false claims? To do that, we explore what most people think are the four most likely possible explanations.
- Leftists are honestly mistaken. Merely naïve and misguided.
- Leftists are mentally ill. Leftism is a mental illness.
- The brains of people who are leftist perceive the world in a different way than rightists do; that is, in such a way that the leftists truly believe things that they know to be false. This isn’t a mental illness, just a kind of compartmentalization, or something.

○ The "Global South" is poorer than the West only because the global south nations are exploited by Europe and the U.S.
○ Control of the money system by federal government, politicians, and central bankers makes the money system stronger, and has prevented any inflation, recessions, and bank failures.
○ Biologically-based racial differences cannot exist. (This has been a leftist claim and the official position of the UN since 1950)

○ Exxon Mobil’s merger with Pioneer is a direct threat to our democracy.
If two oil companies merge, will that change the form of government the nation has? No, that’s not true. The list of leftist untruths could go on and on indefinitely. Because the mainstream media is a stream of false claims, and it never ends. True, it does not consist entirely of non-factual statements, but the intent of all of it is to mislead; that is, not to tell the truth.
The New York Times claims that the merger of two oil companies will cause the U.S. to have a different form of government, because if Exxon is bigger, it will have more power to cause global warming, therefore global warming will destroy America, therefore it will destroy democracy in America. Meanwhile, the people who write the New York Times will claim that when the federal government orders social media companies to lie and censor, that does not threaten freedom of speech
The leftists have taken control of most of our institutions: From the big corporations and the public school system, to the government itself, and even the big mainstream religions. Maybe understanding why leftists make false claims, and how they weaponize them, could be a step toward turning the tables on them, and finding ways to take back our freedoms and our country.
We think it might be worth a shot. So we have more pieces that we hope will solve the puzzle of why leftists make false claims, what they are trying to achieve with those false claims, and how we might stop them.
