Rager Echo Chamber

The New York Day of Rage took a long time to gain momentum. The problem is, even though New York is the media capital of the world, no one in New York City really cared. The first day or two, it was news. After that – eh! Onto the next thing. The movement actually had to bring in celebrities to bolster their ratings.


As they promised, their movement has “spread” to other cities. This “spread” is a rather calculated “spread” since they already knew they’d be performing in other cities. The American Revolution was a “spread,” a spontaneous response. Rescuers heading towards the burning World Trade Center on 9/11 was a spontaneous response, as were all the boats that headed to Lower Manhattan to evacuate residents and commuters.

Every Progressive/Liberal movement has to have signature. The Hippies had the peace sign, both that evil symbol that they use and the two-fingered v gesture. This generation’s signature is the echo-chamber call, repeating everything their lead speaker says. At least the Tea Parties, when they were allowed to do so, had original, home-made signs.

But this bunch has taken to echoing their speakers. Undoubtedly, it’s supposed to be a taunt towards the Tea Parties (we’ve never done such a thing – we cheer, we sign, we wave American flags, and carry signs). There is a method to their zombie madness, which goes back to an ancient philosophy that Man was born a blank slate and that the individual is incapable of original thought. Man, the philosophy holds, is the sum of everything he has learned from others and his environment, and nothing more.

This philosophy inspires a doubt in individuals that is useful to those who crave power and wish not merely to lead the masses, but control them. What’s more, this philosophy brands future philosophers, artists, poets, writers, statesmen, with the brand of plagiarism. Liberals are fond of accusing the great 19th Century composers of stealing their tunes from the rustic musicians they heard on their travels.

That, they consider, is the legacy of the West. We’re “stealing” oil from the Arabs (considering the prices we pay, that’s hard to believe). The South stole labor from the Black slaves (which is true), and we’re “thieves” for not paying them reparations. Many European immigrants left the Continent with nothing but their clothes and a skill they could ply in America, and became wealthy.

But now we’re told the banks are greedy and evil for not giving away houses to people who can’t afford to buy them.
