Lew Rockwell started off his book “The Left, the Right and the State” with the quotation that is the title of this blog post.
I self-published a book in 2018 (it was written in late 2017), “The Kids Are Not Alright,” with the following paragraphs:
I’m sorry folks but this isn’t staying on the college campuses. It’s not just
psychopaths running around the streets breaking windows and stabbing
horses. Nope, this is infesting everything. And the more we allow this to
infringe upon our rights the closer we get to what Charlton Heston called
“Tyranny with Manners.”
It has infiltrated private businesses, “Corporate America”, all industries.
Human Resources departments are fast becoming a landing spot for
these lunatics. Many times, someone fresh out of school will come in
and convince the leadership of these companies that if they wish to avoid
litigation they must adopt this ideology. Anyone who works at a large
company, especially one that is based out of Europe, has seen this first
hand. Now it’s going global. I have experienced it and it’s not pretty.
It starts with a “diversity video” or “diversity training.” It’s made clear
from the start that if you do not follow the guidelines there will no longer
be a spot for you and your employment will be terminated. Setting aside
the fact that by signing on the dotted line and agreeing to these terms
you will be denied unemployment; the more important issue is that this
will follow you. As more companies adopt these practices the odds of
continuing your career becomes difficult.
You didn’t have to be a prophet to see this coming but it’s amazing how many Libertarians missed it. They’re paying attention now.
