“Our ambition should be to rule ourselves, the true kingdom for each one of us; and true progress is to know more, and be more, and to do more.” -Oscar Wilde
I haven’t had a blog since back in high school. I always find it difficult to begin something new that is open to critique and judgment, it seems to be the scariest thing to take your own thoughts and ideas and put them out in the open for everyone to see. There is a certain degree of arrogance that goes into blogging versus other mediums, I think that’s why millennials love it so much. My generation is under the false assumption that everybody cares about what they have to say, they seem to be yearning for superficial attention in everything they do. The entitlement of being a young American plays a part, so does social media. When the world is always at your fingertips it’s all too easy to start believing you really are the center of the universe. The incessant influx of social media notifications becomes your drive to live.
Instead of addressing these issues, millennials choose to dig themselves deeper into the problems their generation faces. In the face of their constitution being destroyed, they march for their rights to be taken away. Presented with overwhelmingly costly college degrees, they choose to major in unhirable fields of study. And when confronted with the reality of responsibility and hardship, they choose not to fix their situations or help themselves, but instead rely on government to mend their issues, all the while blaming someone else for their own shortcomings.
Breaking the indoctrination of the young American is the most important issue facing this country. If my generation falls, we all fall. The leftist conscription of the millennial psyche is deeply rooted in American education and media, and without a strong and dedicated opposition, I believe we will lose. The globalist paradigm aligned with the highly toxic politically correct have infiltrated every vein of American life, using the false narrative of compassion and tolerance as their shield against logic and morality.
The only way to defeat the behemoth that is the left is through truth. Truth is not objective, it is not up for debate, it is the law of all life. The pursuit of it drives our morals, and the discovery of it solidifies it. Those who hope to dismantle truth through their malice and greed can only hope to do so at the peril of others. There is no salvation in false self-efficacy. While the right attempts to lead through sincerity and honesty, the left aims to control through falsehood and misinformation. But lies can be embellished, and the left continually wins the culture war on young people’s minds. They tantalize them with grand ideas of generous government benefits for all, faulting the right when their promises inevitably fail to come to fruition. They blame conservatives for their losses, accusing them of a lack of compassion or empathy, forever continuing the cycle of the left’s falseness versus the right’s struggle to unveil the truth.
The right believes in the power of the individual, and as an individual, I hope to spread the truth. Along with PragerU, I aim to break the narrative of the leftist claim on America. There is no greater satisfaction than knowing you liberated someone from the clutches of a lie, to bring them to understanding. I can only pray that others will join me through the journey for freedom. The road ahead sure looks daunting. We need all the help we can get.
