It has been noted before how there’s a noticeable disconnection between the rhetoric and the actions of the politicians and activists pushing the climate-change agenda. It’s not rational to make healthcare the focal point of a presidential campaign while claiming that carbon dioxide emission is “an existential threat.” Who dedicates all its energy and resources to long-term plans for healthcare that will be useless anyway, because “we’re all going to die in 10 years”? Shouldn’t you be focusing on how to cut carbon dioxide emissions, and looking for feasible ways to produce the required energy? Unless, of course, you don’t really believe all that apocalyptic nonsense, and are just using this hyperbolic rhetoric to advance hidden agendas.
Hardly anything illustrates this disconnection like Obama’s new mansion in Martha’s Vineyard. Would you be spending close to fifteen million dollars on a property that may be underwater in ten years? Only an idiot would do that, and Obama is definitely not an idiot. The other possibility is that he’s a hypocrite: I can live with that.
Indiscutiblemente, la admiración por el bello sexo ha sido históricamente la primerísima fuente de inspiración en todas las manifestaciones artísticas. Aunque probablemente no haya mucha diferencia desde el punto de vista hormonal, la diferencia entre el mugido de admiración del toro por la vaca y, digamos, el mármol de Antonio Cánova representando a Paulina Bonaparte como “Venus Victrix”, es simplemente abismal.O el sonido de Something, que George Harrison compuso inspirado en la belleza de Pattie Boyd. O el de Layla, de Eric Clapton, también inspirada en la susodicha Pattie…
The State is the sole culprit behind the current mental health crisis.
– It all started with the takeover of primary education. The public school system transformed education into the systematic indoctrination of generation after generation of malleable children. Traditional values like family and religion were slowly replaced with the cult of the State. The impossibility to cover special needs (a “one-size-fits-all” approach to children/youth care) made bullying and youth alienation a regular occurrence.
– The welfare state, the criminalization of everything (ie. “illegal substances”), and the progressive crusades pushing for women’s “equality” eroded the cohesion of the traditional family, leading to fatherless children becoming a new normal.
– The warfare state created a cult of everything military, and a casual attitude towards violence and war. The pop culture, led by Holywood’s entertainment industry, made war “cool.”
– The academia was taken over by progressive intellectuals, pushing identity politics and victim mentality into universities and into the State’s bureaucratic framework.
– The State’s regulatory framework made illegal healthier alternatives for pain relief, imposing new poorly researched psychotropic substances into the market.
There’s no easy way out of it. Adding laws and regulations on top of the existing chaos will do nothing but worsen the already ugly landscape; only stripping the State of its power, and returning individuals the control and responsibility for their lives, can have a lasting positive effect.
