Edward Banfield, in his book The Unheavenly City, explained why criminals perform illegal acts, by explaining that they are unable to foresee any punishment for their breaking the law, so they do illegal things spontaneously and repeatedly because of their lack self-control and an inability to connect cause and effect. So they continue to commit crimes and repeatedly go to jail, and, of course, their victims continue to suffer.
After watching Joey Biden issue one devastating executive order after another during his first week in office, killing thousands of jobs in the United States, and still be able to repeat the leftist mantra of creating many good-paying, clean jobs, I believe Democrat stupidity is of the same relationship to a Democracy as crime is to criminals: leftist Democrats are unable to connect their actions with the horrible outcome that naturally follows from those stupid actions.
This week Biden issued an executive order stating that girls must allow boys to compete in the girls’ sporting events, and he is unable to recognize that the weaker and smaller girls can’t compete with the stronger male competitors, so the males are prone to win these lop-sided events. And even after the horrible results of the girls losing competitions with boys that we‘ve already seen in this politically correct nation, for which the girls have trained hard and long and still lose to the male competitors, leftists like Biden still don’t get the idea of an unfair and unequal physical competition between male and female. Is it stupidity or misogyny? Do Democrats not understand the biological “science” between male and female? And if America allows men to win all of the women’s competitions, who will represent America in the Olympics? Will China and Russia allow American men to compete with their women in Olympic competition?
Also this week Biden issued an executive order shutting down the Keystone pipeline from Canada, making the Canadian Prime Minister furiously angry with Biden and killing tens of thousands of jobs in America, thereby making America dependent again on Arab oil, and the fool Biden can’t see how wrong his order was. But he goes immediately back to his old, worn talking points, that someone on his staff has written for him, and insults everyone by telling us that better jobs will come from his order once the Green New Deal is implemented.
The inability of leftist/Socialists to foresee the bad things that will result from their decisions and executive orders is why all Socialist/ Communist governments fail and inevitably cause misery, and often early, violent deaths, for their citizens.
So with Joey Biden issuing dozens of executive orders in the first week of his administration, our nation is doomed to failure as his bad decisions cause a weakened and poorer nation to have to struggle to stay alive.
