Street robbers often carry out crime for the fun of it. So says an official report. And about time, too. Officialdom is often so far up its own ideology that it is incapable of realizing what the real world is like.
Ideology, you say. What ideology? The ideology of the liberal kind – the kind that says, without exception, that people are intrinsically good. If they go bad, it has got to be someone’s fault, from society to lack of dummy as a child.
This liberal idiocy is, and has always been, wrong. People are intrinsically tied to their instincts, and in a society, this can make them bad, just for the fun of it. The thing that makes people good is the teaching of morality above their instincts.
