Good Public Policy

by Glenn Fairman8/7/15

It was once legal to own a slave.
It was once legal to beat or rape a slave.
But, It is now illegal. Why?
Because It is immoral to treat a human being as a means and not as an end in himself.
Because It is immoral for a class of humans to be used as parts on behalf of another…….
When we apply this principle, all things being equal, to the murder of nascent humans for the sake of convenience, it becomes apparent that the action of selective abortion is an immoral and repugnant act—and its practice ought to be arrested…….if we are to be consistent, and not merely pandering to the vain conceit of an arrogant age.

    The similarity of the issues of abortion and slavery has been noted before (in fact, both sides claim the similarity). Roe v. Wade can thus be compared to Dred Scott v. Sanford — but so far we haven’t had an Emancipation Proclamation for unborn babies.

      If abortion advocates would just frame the question as the right to “secede” in regards to the pregnancy, I’m sure libertarians would be on board. And from what I understand, most libertarians are already pro-abortion. For them it’s an issue of “liberty.” Much like the left, they are poisoning and redefining yet another good word.

    Rush played an extended sound byte from Carly Fiorina in which Rush said the money quote was her comment about the Democrats degrading the character of the nation.

    It’s not hip or cool to care about the character of the nation. The only legitimate moral realm in the minds of far too many is whether or not you are nice to lions, “the poor,” and are otherwise doing your part to “heal the planet.” But not killing unborn babies and sell their parts for profit? Those considerations are for religious fundamentalists or other Nazis who just want to control what you do in the privacy of your own bedroom.

    So engaging the culture wars is not easy with the starting assumptions held by many (including many who are otherwise no particular friend of the Left). Show me a tie-dye hippie, for example, and I’ll show you an intellectually and morally confused human being. He may be full of self-righteous fervor for “freedom,” but he has most likely inhaled the second-hand fumes of a Leftist formulation of freedom (much as Pope Francis has inhaled a Leftist formulation of Catholicism).

    So we have our work cut out for us.

      Everyone seems to agree that Fiorina did well (so much so that the article on the debate in USA Today, which we receive because the Curious Journal is a Gannett paper, largely ignored her). Go Carly! Stick it to the Fire Witch!

      • Brad Nelson Brad Nelson says:

        Well, I certainly wish Carly the best. But I’ll tell you up front that I doubt she’s a conservative. A lot of people say they are. And they may believe they are. And she’s almost certainly right of Bush and Rubio.

        But one must prepare for the reality the even Carly will likely bow to a few PC gods before it’s all over, especially if she advances in the polls. I’m just warning you all to take your Dramamine now so that you’re not caught unawares. But we’ll see.

          I tend to agree with you. But there is no doubt she is an expert politician. Nobody rises so high in a huge bureaucratic corporation like Hewlett-Packard without being a very astute one.
