Maybe

05 Sep

the winds are shifting. I think so. I think that the veneer that initially made assisted suicide attractive has worn off. The patina of legitimacy is fading with usage. We are seeing what it really is, what it is in practice and we want nothing to do with it. It has been (ahem!) weighed in the balance and found wanting.

There is a guy in one office I work in that is a HUGE assisted suicide promoter. He even flies around the country from time to time to “help.”

I think many of us found him persuasive, initially. But his schtick has worn very thin, and now I don’t know of a single person in the office who takes him seriously. Far from gaining intellectual ground over time, he has lost intellectual ground.

And parenthetically, I think that is quite typical for Leftism in general. It sounds good at first, on the surface, but it is just a patina of legitimacy. The more you know what chickens eat (to reference a proverb), the less you want to eat chicken. And so Leftism gets far less persuasive as one gets older and more experienced.

That’s why it pulls in youth and college students–older people have been exposed to it for years and are less smitten by it. The patina has totally worn away. They know what chickens eat.

Leftism is attractive to three groups: a) the young and misty-eyed b) old and rigid who really can’t change, usually because of personality pathology,  and c) those who benefit from it, like public school teachers and college professors.

Note that NONE of these groups can give a decent logical defense of leftism. It is virtually always  based on either pie-in-the-sky naiveté or non-self aware greed. Maybe both, at times.

As Winston Churchill said, “If you are not a liberal at 25, you have no heart. If you are not Conservative at 35, you have no brain.”

Yeah,

shocker.

Look, the “Special Snowflake” SJW schtick just doesn’t fly once you leave college. Let this be a lesson to other would-be special snowflakes. They will get even less consideration than this guy did. Their skills may not be rare or valuable…

This guy is a fool. Don’t be a fool.

Not really

much of a surprise, really.

If you didn’t see this coming, you just don’t understand human beings.
