I read the recent exchange between Lisa Backus and Patricia Elkovitch dealing with the Democratic women dressed in white during the State of the Union. Unlike those women, I don’t doubt Lisa’s support for the historic women’s rights movement. I also share skepticism of both major political parties and the poor excuse for objectivity that is portrayed in the mass media and through the school system(s) from grade school right to universities.
We face many challenges from the womb to the tomb and we can argue how best to address them as we bring up our mutual hypocrisies. However, when New York state passed legislation allowing the blatant infanticide of infants, the mask comes off and the Rubicon was crossed. This can be linked to the continued doses of Novocain to the soul. Is the U.S. any better than a pre-World War II authoritarian, socialized Germany?
