Earlier this month Ronald Radosh told us of an ongoing controversy stirring in the UK over the Marxist upbringing of Labor Party leader Ed Miliband. To be sure, after reading Mr. Miliband’s conference speech I could find nothing as offensive to Americans as Prime Minister Cameron’s remark that Obama “pressed the reset button on the moral authority of the entire free world.”

The free world, under the leadership of the United States, never lost moral authority – despite what some people nostalgic for the days of Saddam Hussein would like to think.

But his proposals – tax hikes, price controls, ecotyrany, nationalizing private property (“so we’ll say to private developers, you can’t just sit on land and refuse to build. We will give them a very clear message — either use the land or lose the land, that is what the next Labour government will do.”) — are a threat to liberty and the economic foundations of British capitalism (or, what is left of it).

The immortal Michael Ledeen, once — in pre-PJM days, in The American Spectator, April 1998 — wrote that:

These are decidedly bad times for Europe, and for those of us who have long looked to Europe for inspiration. Unlike the enormously creative generation or two following the debacle of the Second World War, today’s Europeans suffer from an enormous sense of taedium vitae. The postwar Europeans gave us great theater, great cinema, great novels. Back in the mid-fifties, when I and my highschool pals dreaded ending up in grey flannel suits and living a boring existence in the suburbs, the Europeans gave us sexy women, sexy movies, even sexy philosophers. The French and Italian existentialists, and those angry young Englishmen were surrounded by intellectually fascinating and physically luscious girls, while we made do with dreams inspired by Grace Metalious and Harold Robbins. They had great cuisine and fine wines, we had hot dogs, hamburgers, Coca-Cola, bourbon, and bad beer. Joie de vivre was theirs, not ours. Europe offered pleasures of the flesh and of the mind, and, above all, Europeans incessantly pondered the meaning of it all. …

No more. They’re burnt out, and they know it. Only a masochist would voluntarily attend what now passes for an intellectual salon most anywhere from Paris to Rome, because such conversation is more an exercise in group therapy for the depressed than a spirited inquiry among people expecting to shape the world.

[emphasis mine]

This essay, titled “The Sick Men of Europe,” was prophetic. It predicted with remarkable precision the rise of a continent-wide, mediocre ruling class, and the unbelievable corruption and devastation brought on by the European Union. (Thatcher may have been able to save the UK from the latter, but, sadly, the former took over once she left.) However, Mr. Ledeen may have been too quick to stipulate the extinction of everything he so fondly remembers. Some of it certainly did survive.

But we don't need more children born to people who can't support them. We especially don't need more children who grow up with absent fathers -- that's a formula for all kinds of social problems.

Population growth does not automatically create prosperity, especially when you achieve it by subsidizing the birth of people who are raised in an environment of dependency on government handouts. On the other hand, prosperity -- REAL prosperity, generated by productivity rather than "economic stimulus" -- will create a baby boom, just as it did in the post-WWII years.

“It’s their choice to have loads of kids – so why should I give them money? It was my choice to have cats, but I don’t ask for benefits for them.”

Dear, kids are not cats, and welfare is not a benefit. The fact that children are used as an excuse to steal money from the state budget is NOT the kids' fault. We need children, we need another baby boom. There is no way to replace humans with machines and money emission to make the economy hum. If you take away national debts, inflation, and "quantitative easements" there has been no real growth in the world's economy since 1982. Get this into those thick heads: NO population increase NO economy expansion NO prosperity. No matter how fabulous your looks you still need market expansion to make the economy hum.

I agree with you. What I do not agree is with the previous blanket statement. There has never been economic growth with a declining population. On the other hand the growth in population has to be orderly, it has to happen in families, and it does not have to be connected to any government subsidy. We got to be billions without the help of any state, we do not need those unfit to have a family to keep having virtual orphans. We need good families with lots of children. Children are not a disease.

Flat tax? Clearly she's crazy. She needs a few years at a Federal Park Ranger run reeducation camp.

The author quotes Ledeen about Europe - "Back in the mid-fifties, when I and my highschool pals dreaded ending up in grey flannel suits and living a boring existence in the suburbs, the Europeans gave us sexy women, sexy movies, even sexy philosophers. The French and Italian existentialists, and those angry young Englishmen were surrounded by intellectually fascinating and physically luscious girls"

But that was the culture of the Left. With it came a rejection of the culture of their families and that ludicrous sacrifice of parents that their sons and daughters should have a better life. That sentiment played right into the arms of the Left's culture machine.

The entire post WW 2 environment was one big cultural experiment of a new Left Bloomsbury Movement - a rejection of the sensuality of Victorians with their big families and home schooling in lower grades, a protection of the youngsters - and in its place was a more Left friendly Edwardian bacchanal.

Let's be clear. Marx (actually Lawrence Schiller) said religion is the opiate of the people. Left sex celebration is the opiate of the people - and the Left's actual opiate - drugs - are as well.

Saddam, who? They are nostalgic for Pre-reset with Putin, pre-red-line with Assad.

Frankly, what moral authority do we have to lead anyone? Almost went to war on the side of Al Qaeda in Syria? Surrendered to Putin? Eavesdropped Merkel's phone chats? Let lose IRS attack dogs on domestic enemies? Executed American citizens abroad without trials? Illegally seized a journalist files with unrelated warrants? Illegally tapped journalist's phones and hacked her computer? Scapegoated a citizen for causing a riot to cover up the administration's incompetence in Benghazi? Waged lawfares on citizens who refused to toe the govt. line? Snooped citizens without probable cause? Force citizens to disclose their medical records to an incompetent govt.?

Ask you again, what moral authority do we have? What have we done lately to promote freedom and democracy?
