NY Times: Mostly Unnamed North Carolinians Fear Something

I’d like to know what the NY Times actually knows about “the middle way”, considering they operate out of a heavily Progressive city in a pretty heavily left voting state

North Carolinians Fear the End of a Middle Way

When Pat McCrory, a Republican former mayor of Charlotte, was elected governor last year, he pledged to “bring this state together,” and to focus on bread-and-butter issues amid an ailing economy.

But with Republicans controlling all branches of the state government for the first time in more than a century, the legislature pushed through a wide range of conservative change. The Republicans not only cut taxes and business regulations, as many had expected, but also allowed stricter regulations on abortion clinics, ended teacher tenure, blocked the expansion of Medicaid, cut unemployment benefits, removed obstacles to the death penalty, allowed concealed guns in bars and restaurants, and mandated the teaching of cursive writing.

And some whining about voter ID. But, what is this really about?

But the agenda that did pass was unquestionably a right turn for a state that only five years ago voted for Barack Obama, the first Democratic presidential candidate to win here since Jimmy Carter. With a run of Democratic governors stretching back to 1993, North Carolina was considered such a promising state for the Democrats that they held their convention in Charlotte in 2012.

Progressives/Liberals are afraid of losing the momentum they made in the South, replacing Blue Dog Democrats, and competent ones too boot, with hard left Progressives like Bev Perdue (governor from 2008-2012, and so incompetent that she refused to run for a 2nd term) and Mike Easley, who preceded Perdue.

In fact, other than liberals, most North Carolinian’s are happy with the way things are going.

    NC will continue to getter bluer. All those “smart people” moving to Chapel Hill

    “Middle Way” is a significant term. Just like ‘Sustainability’ and ‘Smart Growth’ are code words for the UN AGENDA 21.

    “Middle Way” = “Third Way ”

    Harold Macmillan, British Prime Minister from 1957 to 1963, based his philosophy of government on what he entitled in a book, The Middle Way (1938) a variation on the progressive ‘Third Way’ theme.

    A chief proponent of The Third Way, Fabian Anthony Giddens, has publicly supported a modernized form of socialism and breathed new life into the concept along with Bill Clinton and Fabian Tony Blair.

    see: WIKI
    thirdway.org
    “Anthony Giddens: Globalisation and the Third Way” (lse.ac.uk)

    Anthony Giddens was director of the London School of Economics (LSE). LSE was started by Fabian Socialists Sidney and Beatrice Webb, Graham Wallas, and George Bernard Shaw
    with the intention of renewing the training of Britain’s political and business elite. They have moved on to training international leaders.

    These are the same people who were also active in the Eugenics Movement and supported Hitler.
    Search:

    “The real George Bernard Shaw” (scribd)

    “Eugenics: the skeleton that rattles loudest in the left’s closet” (theguardian)

    “The eugenics movement Britain wants to forget” (newstatesman)

    And close to home in North Carolina:

    In North Carolina over 7,600 people were sterilized between 1929 and 1974 under the state’s Eugenics Sterilization Program.

    in 1919: In Elizabeth City, Margaret Sanger delivers the South’s first public lecture on birth control.
    I suggest you read:
    “Margaret Sanger Founder of Planned Parenthood
    In Her Own Words”

    Fabian Socialist Sir Julian Huxley became the first Director-General of UNESCO, he authored UNESCO: ITS PURPOSE AND ITS PHILOSOPHY (1948) in which he revealed that

    “even though it is quite true that any radical eugenic policy will be for many years politically and psychologically impossible, it will be important for UNESCO to see that the eugenic problem is examined with the greatest care, and that the public mind is informed of the issues at stake so that much that is now unthinkable may at least become thinkable.”

    Has the thinking actually changed?

    Well no. Obama’s Science Czar is Eric Holdren co-author with the Erhlichs of the book ECOSCIENCE.

    For actual passages from the book look at “John Holdren, Obama’s Science Czar, says: Forced abortions and mass sterilization needed to save the planet” by zombietime

    I would say they are moving right along straight on target with Agenda 21 and ‘De-carbonizing’ ERRR or was that
    “A massive campaign must be launched to restore a high-quality environment in North America and to de-develop the United States.” <b<Human Ecology: Problems and Solutions 1973 by the same authors.
