War & Peace

Monday, October 4th, 2004 · 1 Comment

Check out Dan’s interesting commentary, War is Peace, on Mere Sketches:

    “(W)ar for Bush is like peace for the Democrats. In war, Republicans get to play on their traditional strength of national security. The party in power benefits from the rallying around the flag. US soliders – stuck in the middle – are damn good at their jobs, which can save the asses of Rumsfeld et al when they mess up. In war, triple amputees like Max Cleland become traitors and war heros like John Kerry become ‘French’, which is Bush-speak for Fag.

    “In peace, people are concerned about health care – which Democrats know something about Republicans don’t. They’re concerned about jobs, which Clinton created and Bush destroyed. They’re concerned about the environment, which Bush has an almost pathological hatred for and [some] Democrats spend their lives protecting.”

Do Democrats and Republicans have inherently conflicting missions? Or at least strengths?

    Yes, of course. The Republicans are inheritantly out to obliviate those who are unfit to survive. The Democrats are out to preserve everything in sight. Both parties have to live with contradictions. The Republicans must balance between Darwinistic capitalism and its God-driven constituents. Although the Democrats seem more humane, ultimately its preservation efforts might hinder the progression of nature and the evolution of mankind.
