There is not anyone who can think or see who believes everyone is equal. Everyone is unique including so called “identical twins.” Yet we are indoctrinated with the slogan, “everyone is equal.” People range from short to tall, beautiful to ugly, bright to slow but all can equally become the best they can be by maximizing their strengths and minimizing their short comings.

America, being a nation of immigrants, did not attempt to limit or prescribe what a person should become according to family status or any other criteria. In our capitalist economy, the merit of the person’s performance for the most part determines his financial compensation. Doing a competent job not who you know is more important to maintaining employment. An employee’s productive value to the business is the key to remaining and advancing in a position. 

Of course internal politics plays a role in advancement specifically in large corporations. Our economic system in the USA is not flawless but does offer numerous pathways to upward mobility for people who are willing to apply effort and concentration to their assignments. In start-up businesses the boss is inspired mostly by his own vision, initiative and devotion to the business. Commitment, perseverance and sweat go a long way in developing a viable business.

The incredible number of opportunities and success stories of people picking themselves up by their bootstraps is no longer enough to persuade many in this society of capitalism’s value. Currently too many Americans are accepting the utopian “easy way” notion that they are entitled to whatever they desire. According to this absurd idea, since we are all born human each of us deserves an equal portion of the economic pie. They insist on this even when they are not contributing anything to the making of the pie. “Equal” to them means having the same material benefits as anyone else without having to earn them. This is socialistic hocus pocus that has never worked and will not in the future. Yet most products of the university (students) are being converted to be proponents of this socialistic/communistic continually failed system. 

 Our universities and progressive media are using their position to constantly exploit the inequities between minority groups to alienate students. They do not appreciate our free market economy and the greatness that our country has accomplished. They do not view  America as the land of opportunity. Instead, professors incessantly twist information to create a horrendous narrative that white males, the 1%-ers, are oppressing the poor criminals, feminists, gender confused, homosexuals and Islamic people of the world. The pitting of minority groups against each other has resulted in deranged and angry agitators. These mentally unbalanced dreamers are looking for the magical utopian solution offered by the elite, all-wise teachers to solve all their personal issues. The gullible but arrogant students complain they need higher compensation for their menial jobs and should start at the top position as they have college degrees. More politically radical students hide their identity behind black clothing and masks and violently destroy private property of the corporate world and at times their own community. These criminal malcontents want the rapid transformation of America into a centrally controlled economy and state.

Destroying anything is easier than building and maintaining something. Being envious of what others have built is foolish and non productive. It results in a life of disappointment and misery which culminates in indiscriminate violence ending in political chaos and ruin. The French Revolution and many others throughout history ended in horror instead of the magnificent privileges and material goods they were promised.

In our nation self-centered and self-important university professionals. and media elites preach and divide our country into have and have-nots. This strategy is employed to foment hostility and hatred to eventually destroy our constitutional republic.

This nightmare scenario might sell in a college setting with naive, ignorant and inexperienced adolescents and self-important adults but is not being bought by the bulk of middle class American citizens. The USA is still the beacon of freedom to most mainstream American citizens and the rest of freedom loving people around the world.

Just look at the different people from all over the world willing to pay their way with as much as a half million dollars of their own money or risk their lives to illegally cross the border to become one of us. People around the world are making a strong statement with their feet and money to become part of our country. Improving oneself and carving out one’s own sanctuary world is a sign of wisdom for these courageous individuals. 

If any American does not understand the obvious real greatness of America, the only thing they have to do is travel and experience the difficulties of expressing one’s beliefs and ideas in other nations. The difficulty of moving up the employment ladder is easily realized by conversing with bright and energetic people who are restricted by their government regulations from starting their own businesses. 

Once you realize the difficulty for the people of other countries to deal with these two social issues, you will appreciate the greatness of our nation. America is still the land of opportunity and freedom.
