When people leave states like California, Illinois, and NY for economic reasons
why do they bring the dominant political views of said state with them?
After the tulip bubble burst in the mid 17th century, why has man continually repeated the same mistakes even to our own time after continually having to relearn the same lesson time and time again?
Why, throughout history has man had to contend with lesson after lesson in dealing with authoritarians, strong men, big government, and heavy regulating powers, ending up in the very same fate, and yet still he reverts back to reliance upon government for his happiness rather than himself?
How is it that after all these years on this planet can we still look at history at man controlling man economically, spiritually, secularly, and influencing his own mind through manipulation and lies, convincing him it's for his own good, and still we don't learn that government isn't the answer, but the answer lies within us as individuals?
How is it that the principles and basis for our very own country are so quickly forgotten, and we return to our own vomit without pause or hesitation? That our founding fathers ideals are old fashioned and out of step, yet we are different and wiser with more experiences that they had, yet these were the same men who knew first hand the err of what heavy taxation, heavy regulation, and a strong centralized government could do to one's life and spirit?
Because people in general like to fashion themselves as enlightened and intelligent and every generation knows more that the previous ones, and every country surely won't go the path of previous countries following the same fate because they are they and they were them. In the end, I think we prove that we really aren't very smart after all. We're just really good at blowing smoke up our own arse and the asses of others, fooling ourselves and others in the process.
