Why Leftists Hate Human Nature

There are two prevailing views of human nature. In one view, humans are naturally bad. In the other, humans are naturally good. This may be a simplification, but it is accurate in the aggregate.

In broad terms, leftists tend to believe that humans are naturally good—or at least naturally perfectible. And that is why they emphasize things like the war on poverty, socialized education, and socialized medicine. They believe that the old Platonic lie is actually true—vice is a consequence of poverty and ignorance. Deal with poverty and ignorance, and you will perfect human nature.

Not so much, it turns out. You might change the nature of the crimes, but you certainly won’t change human nature. Even trying to change human nature belies your ideological foundations. How can you believe humans are intrinsically good and in need of perfecting at the same time? The human nature question has already been settled long ago for anyone who cares to stumble out of the proverbial cave of shadows.

Because the fact is that human nature is most empirically, verifiably, incontrovertibly, bad. The most recent illustration proving that leftists just can’t stand this fact is the recent debacle over at the University of Iowa. Apparently, the president had the nerve to say that she did not have a great hope of ending all rapes on campus. In her own words:

. . . The goal would be to end that, to never have another sexual assault. That’s probably not a realistic goal just given human nature, and that’s unfortunate. . . .

I mean, yeah. Of course you should never promise people you can end all rape or murder or violence or vice. That’s just plain ignorant hubris, right? Not according to leftists. They were just outraged at the president’s reasonable remarks, and they forced her to apologize. I guess that’s not too surprising considering the high marks leftists get in the realm of ignorant hubris, but still…

This whole situation is absurd. People were actually protesting the president’s remarks. They had signs with things like, “Not in my nature, Sally” and “This university protects rapists and not victims.”

Rubbish. Would you rather your dear president lie to you? Is that what you want? Is that really protecting the victims? I don’t think so. I say Sally needs to take it a step further. Recognize that rapists are giving in to the most base elements of real human nature, and set more strict and more severe punishments to deter their behavior. What would the leftists recommend instead? Rehabilitation seminars? Having the victims pay taxes to support the lives of the rapists that victimized them? Seriously?

Leftists need to cut it out. The more their attempts to perfect humanity fail, the harder they try. And the harder they fall. Let’s just call a spade a spade already.

  1. Funny, the commies, Nazis, fascists, and progressive democrats haven’t perfected anything except failure and pain.

    You can’t get to the truth when you start with The Lie – and that’s the foundation of progressivism and the left.

  2. GOD IS CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE AND EVERYTHING IN IT OR ABOUT IT. They can find no way to control GOD or one of HIS MASTER PIECES, human nature, therefore, they hate them both. What their aim in life, is control, what they are trying to do, and can find no way to win against GOD, and control HIS works, has them in a tizzy. They have made satanic laws to take place of laws that were made for the good of man is not working, to give them control, the control that they will never have frustrates the greatly.

    Of course the Mormon God is not the CREATOR, he has always not been God.Their God was once a man “just as I'” said their prophet Joseph Smith. Their JESUS is not the SAVIOR that Christians worship. He is the son of “a god and his wife a goddess.” This can be found in “TheWritings of Joseph Smith”.
    Read Genesis 1:1-31, taking special notice of verse 26-27.

  3. What people don’t understand about leftists is that they only use social ills as a front for their real agenda which is to remove liberties, grab power and wealth, and promote totalitarianism. They just like to sound noble while their doing it. Never trust one or believe a leftist.

  4. What a bunch of garbage. Read the writings on the bathroom wall in an ivory league school. It’s just as bad as an inner city Junior High. Human nature is bad. Want proof?
    Take three toddlers and two toys and put them in a room by themselves and watch what happens. NO ONE HAS TO TEACH SELFISHNESS OR VIOLENCE. When we grown up we just become more sophisticated and cunning. Still selfish and violent.

  5. Liberals are VILE individuals controlled by EVIL doers. Not my words, God’s!

    Isaiah 32:5-8

    King James Version (KJV)

    5 The vile person shall be no more called liberal, nor the churl said to be bountiful.

    6 For the vile person will speak villany, and his heart will work iniquity, to practise hypocrisy, and to utter error against the Lord, to make empty the soul of the hungry, and he will cause the drink of the thirsty to fail.

    7 The instruments also of the churl are evil: he deviseth wicked devices to destroy the poor with lying words, even when the needy speaketh right.

    8 But the liberal deviseth liberal things; and by liberal things shall he stand.

  6. Leftists are hypocrites at their finest. . .there is no concern for others. . .all is a farce and leftists hate humankind because decent people recognize what liars leftist really are. . .leftists don’t care squat about anyone else. . .all they want is a viable voting base and enslave with freebies. . .the sheeple are the gullible ones who fall in the trap and to prevent being ridiculed. . .leftists are users, leeches, and follow Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals. . .leftist hate, not love.

  7. Oh come, come: if people were naturally “bad” they would do evil all the time. They wouldn’t even have concept of “good”. There’s no contradiction between “basically good” and “could do better” — unless you’re desperately trying not to believe in evolution.

    As for those rapes on college campuses, I have a few suggestions: 1) teach martial arts to the women, 2) abolish gun-control on campus and *require* the female students to get concealed-carry licenses, take training, and carry their firearms with them at all times, 3) warn the women to always go around in groups of at least two — at least one with a transmitting AV camera. As the old saying goes, “Nobody ever raped a .38.”

  8. IF people are so wonderfully good WHY is there any rape anywhere? IF being poor and uneducated are the reasons for meanness WHY is it happening on a college campus? The saying “you can’t fix stupid” is definitely alive and well and being defended to the hilt at this campus. But at least we have the comfort of knowing there won’t be any liberals in HEAVEN. GOD is very plain. HE gives guidelines in the HANDBOOK that tells us right is right, wrong is wrong and there AIN’T NO GRAY AREA.

  9. Commieonazicrats, or leftists as they are referred to above, hate freedom, period. They are pro-tyrrany and they want to be in charge of inflicting the tyranny. That is what it all boils down to.

  10. Rape? You want to know what rape is – I’ll tell you what rape is – rape is paying around a million dollars over the life of a $250,000 home loan – that is rape.

  11. The only way to solve this problem, since one cannot fix the “stupid” in libtards worldview, is to simply terminate all libtards with extreme prejudice.
