AB: The title of this topic [is] "The Attractions of Defeat." Why does the Left seem to enjoy defeat? Or is that an unfair question?
JG: Well, I'm not sure I agree with the premise. I don't think think that they love defeat, they just have a different definition of victory than maybe you and I do.
AB: What would be their definition of victory be, then, in this case?
JG: Any kind of hamstringing of US military power, for instance. Getting rid of the US as the lone hyperpower, promotes, I don't know, if you want to call it transnational progressivism or whatever you want to call the kind of world government movement. But either way, you see from progressives a desire for an erosion of sovereignty, and for the ascendancy of a kind of world government led by bureaucratic elites, international criminal courts, things like that. You know, the kinds of things where problems are solved by treaties that are signed over extensive hors d'oeuvres. So, solidifying domestic power, and making it impossible for the US to act muscularly on the world stage, I think, would by many progressives be seen as a victory.
Ooh yes. A One World Government, ruled by the types of people the currently populate the UN. Does that make you salivate for the future or what?
