The soul of the people

Dear Joe, well things are shaping up a bit.

Here are some further reflections to your current development of the political work.

First of all, you need to be realistic about the socialistic ideals. If you start taxing according to progressive tax, you need to watch the borders more.

The point is, as Lycurgus, the founder of Sparta argues, if you build a community where the rich pays to the poor, that is egality, you need to make sure, people have a personal relationsship to each other. Solidarity requires personal attachment.

This is the basic flaw of Marxist thinking.

Community requires a shared base of values.

Now, I get it, it sounds nice with a lot of care for the poor, payed by the rich. But we need to be realistic about the system. If we are not, the system breaks down. Lycurgus was quite adamant on this point, so we need to heed him, as I see it.

This brings the whole discussion border control and so on into perspective. Because, then what?

Point is, to be honest, we need to choose between open borders and a wealth faresystem.

That is the truth of it.

What you choose is off cause up to discussion, but Lycurgus is right, and Karl Marx was wrong in not hearing him.

That is the lay of the land, I am sorry, but that is the truth of it.

But then, when you realise this truth, what you can do, is to envision that society that you want. Create that utopia.

The soul of the people, needs to be nurtured and cared for, that is the aim of American politics as I see it.

G-d bless the will to be honest and keep America as a dream.
