Effective resistance requires real understanding
"What better way to erode the distinction between care and killing, indeed to erase it altogether, than to insist that the one is not permitted without the other?"
Maine, USA, there's a fight in the legislature about extending abortion right up to the moment of birth. Why not, say, one month later? Such legislation opens the door to all sorts of mayhem.
-Would the teacher extend the rights she so passionately speaks of to those who choose medical autonomy? Specifically, do the unvaccinated have rights in her view? After all, the right to decline a medical procedure is the law, right? Well, at least we thought we had a legal system that would protect our rights. We don't.
-Quebec is a hyper-secularized state with an authoritarian impulse and no inner-core principles. Legault personifies this assertion to me. The abhorrent law is just an outflow and reflection of our moral standards. Which aren't very high it appears.
-All it took to take down decades of building ethical standards and codes was a hyped-up medical threat. It was one of the first casualties in this medical catastrophe. One example of ethics gone awry is the loathsome Arthur Caplan.
Thank you Douglas. About the Edmonton story, I wrote a little column on this same substack platform. Cheers. https://gordonnickel.substack.com/p/its-not-a-joke-mansour
I didn’t know Del Noce but his analysis is indeed apt. Scientism reduces the human essence to mere mechanism - neither biology nor divinity playing any defining role - which requires technocracy and totalitarianism as the inevitable political form. All resistance to this must be eradicated as an organic deviation from the rise of the machine. Singularity AI will therefore be degendered denatured and demoral. And will be best shaped to rule us all as James Lovelock (ian Flemings “Q” mad scientist & ex MI5 asset) proposed in his last book.
