Why I Am Doing This
I remember as a young boy when the Soviet Bloc leadership was predicting the complete collapse of the USA. At that time nobody would think that people could be so stupid as to turn on their own country. It appears that those leaders were right and almost prophetic.
Looking at the political climate in the USA is outright terrifying. Some media outlets call the USA the most polarized country in the world now. People ask questions about how we define national identity. Other groups of people are accusing the USA of imperialism even though we never had an emperor. I understand tension and conflicts in democracies around the world. But we are not a democracy; we are a representative republic. That’s the best system that ever existed anywhere on this planet.
Some people think we have a problem with the US Constitution and using this notion as a pretext to call for a rewrite by the very politicians and bureaucrat’s alike who have been violating it for a few decades now.
My name is Jacek Kóbiesa. I was born in Poland and came to the United States of America at a fairly young age. When I landed in New York City at the John F. Kennedy Airport at the end of the Reagan presidency, I arrived here legally, unlike many people. As quickly as I could, I moved to San Francisco, CA where I spent quite a few years. That was my initial exposure to the many problems that the United States is facing now. California and San Francisco are filled with extremes and contradictions. Political beliefs are really strong. I was vilified for my views. Moderate viewpoints are few and far between. There is a huge homeless problem, and you are confronted by it constantly. Hundreds of people need urgent medical and psychiatric care, but instead, they are left to find shelter and food themselves. Many people who are living in the city are literally just stepping over people sleeping on the sidewalks, storefronts, and public transportation terminals, and they do not seem bothered by it. It also became more dangerous to walk around, even during the day.

The oppressor promises to explain all the reality of the system to them. It is all crap, of course. The philosophical underpinning of communism is simply a muddle of words that skews over true reality. The claims about historical progress and revolutionary change are simply lies. The real basis of communism, as Solzhenitsyn shows, is no rational argument, but a desire for power. The fierce resentment of the Marxists against God, against the strong, and against the successful, explains their brutal ideological dictatorship far better than any series of claims about the nature of reality.
“Political philosophy,” for most people, is simply a play of words that covers up longing for power and domination. The hatred of Christian civilization, their success, and order that drove the communists of Solzhenitsyn’s day drive the liberals of today. The same type of people leans toward liberalism as the vehicle for communism.
