The decline and fall of Western Civilization.

This is what I've been saying all along. For some reason, Libs have decided that self-esteem should come above everything else in a child's life. Unfortunately, Libs have no sense of right or wrong, logic, or common sense so they take it to a ridiculous extreme. There's a difference between seeing the silver lining around a cloud and not seeing the cloud at all- but not for Libs.

Rather than encouraging the strengths and letting the weaknesses wither, they're just calling the weaknesses "strengths" and going from there. The problem with this strategy is that it's not based in truth and just like calling radical Islamic terrorism "the religion of peace", it's only going to blow up in not only your face but in the rest of our faces as well.

The old adage, "it's not whether you win or lose, it's how you play the game" still holds true, however, the spirit of this message is that you should learn to play the game properly because if you do, you will ultimately start winning regularly. Any sports fan can tell you that it's no fun when your team loses. Any athlete knows this even better.

There is pleasure in winning by playing the game better than the other team. A clean win comes from working harder, focusing better, having better leadership and experiencing better teamwork than the other team. These are all positive influences on the life of an individual and the lessons learned are carried with you for life and will serve you well in every aspect of your life. This does not, however, mean the same thing as winning at all costs.

True to form, Libs don't understand this simple philosophy. Rather than doing the work and earning a win, they instead try to find an "angle", a backdoor, a loophole, or a shortcut. The reason for this is that it's human nature to want to win but when you convince yourself that you're "above all that", simple rules and simple solutions are no longer an option. This is why the overwhelming majority of cases of voter fraud are perpetuated by Democrats. For the sake of their self-esteem, they have been brainwashed into believing that there's no such thing as winning or losing.

I keep thinking that this is all going to come to a crashing halt any day now but it continues. The story that follows is an extreme example of a very real problem.
It‘s something of a stretch to compare a soccer game among eleven-year-old boys with the fate of the democratic world, but I’ve always managed to see big issues in small things.

My son is playing on a local soccer team which has lost every one of its games, often by humiliating scores. The coach is a nice guy, but seems an archetype of contemporary thinking: he tells the kids not to care about whether they win, puts players at any positions they want, and doesn’t listen to their suggestions.

He never criticizes a player or suggests how a player could do better. My son, bless him, once remarked to me: “How are you going to play better if nobody tells you what you’re doing wrong?” The coach just tells them how well they are playing. Even after an 8-0 defeat, he told them they’d played a great game.

And of course, the league gives trophies to everyone, whether their team finishes in first or last place.
Much more at PJM.
