Ideology replaces reality
07/17/2007 on http://www.brusselsjournal.com/node/1195 Fjordman claimed as following:
“American military historian and columnist Victor Davis Hanson talks about how mass immigration is the product of a de facto alliance between the Libertarian Right and the Multicultural Left. The economic Libertarians can be represented by Swedish writer , author of the book In Defence of Global Capitalism. Norberg can have valuable insights into the flaws of the Scandinavian welfare state model. However, his commitment to a “free market, open border” ideology blinds him to the threat posed by Muslim immigration, an ideological blind spot that is almost as big as the ones we find in Marxists. According to him, “at the moment there is a problem. The right supports one part of globalisation — the free movement of capital and goods – while the left tends to support another part, the free movement of people.”
An ideologist does certainly not understand reality; or it is simply not his intentions to do so. Victor Davis Hanson I have to conclude understand. In a Libetarian’s limited vector-space of a certain number of variables culture and religion for example have no impacts on the teoretical model – mostly because they have not found suitable ways to measure the possible impacts teoretically.
Reality has been drawn for example psychedelically, and thereby perhaps it is replacing life, but this does not matter, as the model of life has priority one. Next to the model of life, death (to dissidents) gets priority two.
You cannot talk about a taxfinanced welfare-system that is neatral over the lifetime in a meaningful way (except for holding a Marxist-agenda) allowing fertility to drop, and as a implication of this forbid the distribution of ages to change, if you base this model of more than 1-2 generations (the selfishness in the ideological top has been described).
It is easy in the model of life, but it is impossible in reality. All ideologies has the same ends: Joined happiness for the camp followers and death to the dissidents. All ideologists Fjordman included are bound to express their potential warnings against things they have not understood themselves.
Islam, a lot of Libertarians and a lot of multicultural Internationalists are still on that same lime twig.
