Relativism is the real problem
I have heard it said that the Liberal political elite and the Liberal media establishment are above scrutiny because of who they are. I disagree. They do not see themselves as being above scrutiny; they just see everything as relative and do not understand why mainstream America does not see it the same way. Their way is a means to an end. The end is a socialist America with the government in control of everything from birth to death, like in France, Germany and most of the rest of “old Europe”. The Liberals in America believe that is ok to do whatever it takes because their end is right and noble; so how to get to the goal does not matter.
It comes down to their view of truth. Most of America has a view of right and wrong, truth and lie, but the Liberals believe that truth is relative. You hear it many ways: Right and wrong is different for different people; there are many ways to God. These are a few ways that Liberals portray what is right and wrong. It is up to the individual if something is right or wrong, and there are no absolutes.
When someone comes along with real convictions, they cannot believe it and know that it is detrimental to their way of life and goals. Liberals try to smear anyone who has these beliefs as dumb or backward. When people do not have any absolutes in their live they live on the shifting sand of relativism, and that only gets you into trouble every time.
