On the 1st of February 2017 I received this in my inbox:
“In a 2005 article published by National Review, Gorsuch argued that “American liberals have become addicted to the courtroom, relying on judges and lawyers rather than elected leaders and the ballot box, as the primary means of effecting their social agenda” and that they are “failing to reach out and persuade the public”. Gorsuch wrote that, in doing so, American liberals are circumventing the democratic process on issues like gay marriage, school vouchers, and assisted suicide, and this has led to a compromised judiciary, which is no longer independent. Gorsuch wrote that American liberals’ “overweening addiction” to using the courts for social debate is “bad for the nation and bad for the judiciary”.”
Assisted suicide? That was what stuck with me … mainly because of this horrifying article, which really shook me: Industrialised Murder in the Netherlands.
What on earth can be said about a society that wants to kill its own? Socialism at its absolute worst? Socialism reaching its final stage? And why on earth is this a core issue pushed by “liberal” activists on both sides of the Atlantic?
Aren’t these the people who like to think of themselves as generous and highly empathic? So concerned in fact about the well-being of women that they do this: French anti-pro-life Law.
Maybe it can be argued that it makes sense to support “assisted suicide” in the name of empathy, but then again where do we draw the lines of what is acceptable or not, not to mention how the Netherlands give their doctors carte blanche to kill their own patients. Good grief, if the times were different we could have put them under foreign administration on the basis of morality 😛 😛
Taking into consideration what I’ve posted before on my blog and how the current political landscape looks like today, this article should be of great interest:What’s Happening in America (1966) by Susan Sontag. The smell of hatred is just as poignant in 2017 as it was back then. Terrifying.
These articles should be of great interest to anyone & everyone, (especially if you’ve read my book review about Warriors & Citizens), this is how unbalanced our institutions are:The Far Left Academia. &The End Of The University.
For anyone who is curious to find out about our “democratic construct” this is certainly mandatory reading:Democracy & The Intellectuals.
Here is a must-see video about McCarthyism. I don’t think anyone is ignorant of what McCarthyism is synonymous with, but it seems like we’ve been all taken for a ride … please take the time to watch this:
Here is a very interesting phone conversation with Nixon actually, I listened to the whole thing. Check it out: Nixon on the Phone.
If you are bored and you wonder what Trump’s opposition is up to, then have a laugh at this: Anti-Trump propaganda.
Here I’m sharing a couple of videos from Canadian icon Jordan B.Peterson, please take the time to watch these two:
I’ll finish off with where I started by sharing a video about ridiculous legislation. Check it out!
