Liberty Relearned Podcast: Resist the Dystopia
Finally, we have an impeachment inquiry against President Biden. Despite what you may have heard, and what the media tell you, there is plenty of evidence of Biden family corruption that could be used against Joe Biden in an impeachment trial. Now the Republicans have to be smart, disciplined, and put together a case as prosecuting attorneys would in a criminal case.
This week, we do a proper Dystopic Journal segment featuring Orwell's 1984.
“If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face – forever” --George Orwell, 1984
Every year since those words were written, we've been inching closer to that dystopia. Now, we are almost there. If the world of 1984 was still on the horizon in 1949 when it was published, that world is now within shouting distance. The naked authoritarianism, abandonment of liberalism, the surveillance state, the mutilation of the English language for purposes of gaining power are already here.
It seems the more control the left has gained over our popular culture, academia, and the news media, the faster we seem to be hurtling toward this dystopian future. The only thing that seems to slow it down is the active, not passive, active resistance to it by a great number of people.
Liberals, the Left, and libertarians, oh my!
Here’s a real quick thought. I go through great pains to use precise language when it comes to talking about Left and liberals. The two terms are commonly conflated, but it is ever apparent that they are two different groups. The modern Left want something very different than classical liberals. Many, including in the conservative commentary space use the term, out of habit, even carelessly. So, without going into a deep dissertation on the differences, (which I’m perfectly glad to do, just not now), here is a pretty good summary of each group’s main focus…
Liberals: Want to be allowed to do whatever they want.
The Left: Want to do whatever they want, and for you to do whatever they want.
Libertarians: Want to do whatever they want that doesn’t hurt others, and for others to do whatever they want, if it doesn’t hurt others.
As a bonus, I’ll throw one in for conservatives,
Conservatives: Basically, the same as libertarians, so long as it’s worked before.
Also, a brief rundown of current events.

Time to lead, Mr. Speaker (clip)
The White House is lawyering up in anticipation of an impeachment inquiry. Will the GOP grow a spine and do what needs to be done? At least authorize an impeachment inquiry, worry about what the Senate will do later. At least give the White House a real reason to hire those lawyers.
Time to lead, Mr. Speaker
There's nothing wrong with the Speaker going to Hawaii, but the GOP needs to take care not to spread itself too thin. While they have to be careful not to get lured down every rabbit hole, Congress has an obligation to find out if the situation in Hawaii was mishandled. Unfortunately, if they investigate every Biden or Democrat screwup, they might never get anything of consequence done.
