Commentary by Member Ed Farr:
There Is No Middle Way.
No one wants to be called a socialist. Even Bernie might take offense. Of course they call
themselves by the s-word but the rest of us may not. The reason is simple. What is the last thing
a wolf wants to be called while prancing about in sheep’s clothing? Right—a wolf. That is why
today’s socialists advocate for a “middle way” between market democracy and the dictatorship
of the proletariat. Their dirty secret is, there is no middle way.
We have had government institutions since the founding. There’s the post office, the army and
local fire departments. Since then we have accumulated socialized institutions like tics on a dog.
Consider the Federal Reserve, inner state highways and public schools.
The middle way theory says that when we observe a persistent social problem we must find a
government solution. Universal retirement planning was such a solution. Folks suffering in their
later years was a persistent social problem. The Roosevelt administration established Social
The sneaky thing about the middle way is this: Persistent social problems never go away. The
complaint department always has a waiting line. If Social Security worked people would still
complain. The civil rights acts ended the Jim Crow laws but people still complain. We have
schools but children are still ignorant. We have medical care but people still get sick and die.
The list of reasons for the Feds to take over is endless. People are suffering so the government
must take over college loans. People are suffering so we must have wage controls. People are
suffering so the government must mandate bathroom policy.
There is no proof that government programs solve social problems faster than natural evolution
under economic freedom. To admit that would nullify the leftist dream.
And what do leftists dream about? Total socialism; here’s how you prove it. Ask a middle-way
advocate this: How will we know when we have reached the ideal middle way? How will we
know when we have enough government solutions? No two leftists can agree. The intention has
always been full socialism. There is no middle way.
