Life: unsafe at any speed
A risk-averse society is a dying society.
We have a meme up at PragerU: “‘Until it’s safe’ means ‘never.’”
The pursuit of “safe” over virtually all other considerations is life-suppressing. This is true for your own individual life, and it is true for the life of a society.
I always give the following example: I have been taking visitors to Israel for decades, and for all those decades, people have called my radio show to say, “Dennis, I would so love to visit Israel, but I’m just going to wait until it’s safe.” And I’ve always told these people, “Then you’ll never go.” And sure enough, I’ve gone there over 20 times, and they never went.
I have never led my life on the basis of “until it’s safe.” I do not take ridiculous risks. I wear a seatbelt whenever I’m in a car because the chances are overwhelming that in a bad accident, a seatbelt can save my life. But I get into the car, which is not 100% safe.
You are not on earth to be safe. You are on earth to lead a full life. I don’t want my epitaph to be, “He led a safe life.” It’s like another epitaph I don’t want: “He experienced as little pain as possible.”
All of life confronts you with this question: Are you going to take risks or play it safe? If you play it safe, you don’t get married. If you play it safe, you don’t have kids. There are real risks in getting married; there are real risks in having children.
If you want to lead a good and full life, you cannot keep asking, “Is it safe?” Those at college promoting “safe spaces” are afraid of life, and they want to make you afraid of life.
We’re going crazy on the safe issue. It is making police states. That’s my worry: In the name of safety, many Americans are dropping all other considerations.
They’ve been meticulously trained to, over many decades, with the making of a police state foremost in the minds of the Planners.
What do you get if you combine the destructive society-destroying policies of Bernie Sanders with the black hole of enthusiasm that is Joe Biden? That’s the new radically insane Democrat nightmare.
Bernie’s policies were terrible, but he had an enthusiastic following. Biden generated all the voter enthusiasm of spoiled tuna, but his selling point was that he wasn’t going to do all the crazy Bernie stuff. Now the Biden campaign is trying to unite the party by adopting some of the Bernie policies so that the Democrats are going to be stuck with all the unelectable socialist ideas and a boring candidate.
The worst of both worlds.
Biden is such a terrible candidate that he vanished from the media landscape until a sexual assault allegation against him went mainstream. And that’s in a media environment where the major news networks were so desperate that they had begun touting George W. Bush as a model of leadership.
When even the most biased media since Pravda can’t even try to make you look good, it’s bad.Voters like Bernie Sanders until it’s slowly explained to them that he wants to take away their Medicare and let the Boston Bomber vote from prison. And those are just the policy outcomes he’ll admit to. Half a dozen 2020 Democrats threw themselves on the socialist hand grenade and endorsed Biden to stop Bernie. But from the looks of things, they might have just as well let Bernie grab the nomination.
The joint unity task forces of the Biden-Sanders campaign will have Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez co-chairing the unity climate change task force. That means putting the radical brat whose Green New Deal called for “the phasing out of American air travel” in charge of advising the Biden campaign.
Varshini Prakash, whose Sunrise Movement helped draft the Green New Deal, is also on the task force. The Sunrise Movement’s demand for net zero emissions by 2030 would wipe out most manufacturing and energy production in this country. That means people freezing to death in their own homes.
And then there’s the criminal justice task force.
