There isn’t a solid piece of ground to stand on if an individual would attempt to deny that Republican “law makers” are long on rhetorical ruse.
That isn’t to ignore or deny that their counterparts across the aisle don’t engage in the same, merely that rhetorical language and the ruse is the Republicans first language – it’s tribal in nature.
The linked article is thought provoking and more than a little disturbing – it conjures up thoughts of conspiracies related to FEMA death camps, the Illuminati, and Soylent Green.
Too outrageous to even contemplate, too “un American?”
Well, maybe so, maybe not, as by now everyone should understand in the realm of possible there isn’t much that’s impossible anymore.
A “Social Darwinist” agenda, maybe not so farfetched, there are multiple sites on the net devoted to eugenics and a thinning of the herd.
“Studies” abound, even legislation it isn’t a stretch to be suspicious about.
History is replete with those advocating for eugenics in one form or another, a list longer than both of your arms combined.
One thing stands out more than any other, and that is those who promote culling the herd always believe they are exempt from such considerations.
They’re special, too essential to the forward march of humanity – their intellect, wealth, or social standing qualifies as an exemption.
If asked would they give up their slot in life to facilitate reducing the demand on resources, to address population issues, they would in all likelihood be aghast at the mere suggestion.
The Earth’s resources are finite in nature, no more land is being made, it isn’t self replicating – sure you can construct a reef or even a small Island but not continents with mountains, rivers, flora and fauna capable of sustaining life.
A reality among other considerations is the motivation to discover inhabitable planets as an effort to address the trashing of the one we call home.
Well, good luck with that as even if such a planet(s) were to be discovered we haven’t the capability to get there much less transport a meaningful number of people.
An additional reality that should drive home the fragile nature of the environment and humanity to withstand ongoing abuse.
Resource wars have become something of a staple, armies stand ready to insure access, and the threat of war with the current level of weaponry is a greater threat than at any time in history.
Science touted in some corners as a vehicle of salvation that will come up with solutions has a Jekyll and Hyde side to it – it was and is science that creates glow in the dark puppies, a genetic tinkering not much different from would be geneticists like Josef Mengele.
It is science that produced the Atomic bomb and now seeks to distance itself from it.
I’m not anti science and in fact believe answers to climate change will come from scientists while at the same time believe it is counterproductive to work both sides of the aisle engaging in weapons research or human genome studies for corporations seeking to patent the findings.
Drop the tinkering and tie dyeing, forget about studies related to how pigeons think, why frogs mate, and get on with the serious stuff.
I don’t feel as though looming difficulties can be laid at a lone individuals doorstep, such things are the result of a collective effort, call it a collaboration if you like.
Trump cannot singularly bring about doom and gloom, it has to be a collaborative effort – an effort facilitated by conservative lawmakers and every individual who voted for him or that isn’t willing in the aftermath to step up and say enough.
Government reflects the electorate, with that being the case the electorate is at a minimum guilty of a contributory negligence.
And yes Hillary won the popular vote and yes Trump won the electoral vote, the result of a dysfunctional system the electorate also bears a degree of responsibility for in allowing such an evolution.
Auric Trump? He certainly has an infatuation with the color gold from new White House drapery to Sharpies with gold ink, and there’s no denying his thirst for power is rivaled only by Goldfinger.
It’s obvious as well he doesn’t give a damn about the working class inspite of the many rhetorical ruses – in spirit, mind, and deed Trump qualifies as as a eugenicist, he, his cohorts, and the wealthy believe they are special, members of an essential ruling class, Morlocks in a world filled with Elois.
Whether or not you believe there are viable reasons for concern as this article suggests there is one thing that can’t be dismissed — it hits the Republicans with every talking point they’ve employed to undermine Obamacare and then some, a poetic irony if nothing else. I’d call that payback.
