We Are Witnessing the Utter Failure of Liberalism Worldwide

London on Fire
As looters in the UK roam the streets, breaking, burning and stealing, we are witnessing the utter failure of liberalism and the welfare state.  We have not yet reached that point in the United States, but the flash riots and wildings of the past few months show we are on the brink.

When you inculcate a strong sense of entitlement in the unproductive underclass, the latter will become angry and violent when his goodies are shut off.   When you rationalize and excuse the anti-social behavior of hoodlums and social parasites, you can only expect more of the same.

Peter Hitchins, writing in the UK Mail Online, describes the failure of the welfare state in Britain.  He writes:
As the polluted flood (it is not a tide; it will not go back down again) of spite, greed and violence washes on to their very doorsteps, well-off and influential Left-wingers at last meet the filthy thing they have created, and which they ignored when it did not affect them personally.

No doubt they will find ways to save themselves. But they will not save the country. Because even now they will not admit that all their ideas are wrong, and that the policies of the past 50 years – the policies they love – have been a terrible mistake. I have heard them in the past few days clinging to their old excuses of non-existent ‘poverty’ and ‘exclusion’.
The U.K. has been the most extreme example of leftist liberalism on the planet.  Mass immigration of hostile and unproductive third-worlders into the country; huge welfare benefits for lazy people who refuse to work even when jobs are plentiful; a wimpy and apologetic police force and anemic justice system that is more inclined to prosecute those who defend themselves than the hordes of hoodlums who are currently burning down London:
The great majority of the looters, smashers, burners and muggers have not been arrested and never will be. Our long-enfeebled police were so useless at the start that thousands of crimes were committed with total impunity.

Now we know why they don’t call themselves ‘police forces’ any more. But they aren’t ‘services’ either, for they certainly don’t serve us or do what we want them to do, preferring to arrest us for defending ourselves. The criminals, who are cunning without being intelligent, all know this. They will wait for the next chance.
Read Hitchins' righteous rant here.

Obviously, if shop owners in London had the right to own and use guns, these riots would likely never have happened, or if they did, would have been cut short with the first bevy of bullet-riddled, hoody-wearing corpses.  You can't be nice to evil; evil must be confronted and opposed without apology.

The first step in stopping this carnage, however, begins at the ballot box.  Liberals and leftists need to be thrown out in mass, along with the sloth and crime-rewarding welfare system they created, and certain third-world immigration halted and reversed.  Uprooting the demented liberal culture will take years, e.g. reversing the deeply ingrained belief that rewarding crime and parasitical behavior is inspired enlightenment, and the reverse only darkness and backwardness.

That linked article is quite a rant.

Just one gem from the article: Nobody is directly punished for what he has done. Excuses must first be sought, and indulgence arranged where there should be cold rage....

The author is correct. The UK may get this recent batch of riots under control. But any such control thereof will be temporary as the TRUE causes will not be addressed. Why? Because the true causes fly in the face of decades of indoctrination in the belief of utopianism.

I learned about it here.

I predict, however, that the UK government won't have the guts to do so.
