Looking Back in Bewilderment

| 14 Comments

From my review of year:

In May, we witnessed the intellectual heft of the Guardian's Polly Toynbee, including her belief that obesity isn't chiefly a matter of inactivity and overeating but instead has a more pernicious cause, i.e., a lack of socialism: "It is inequality and disrespect," we learned, "that makes people fat." Though chunkier readers should note that waiting for a socialist revolution probably isn't the best way to lose those extra pounds. We also pondered the deep ruminations of Marxist philosopher Adam Swift, who insists that reading to your children causes "unfair disadvantage" to the children of parents who are negligent and stupid, and should therefore induce feelings of guilt and discomfort. To our Marxist intellectual, being a competent, caring parent is something to atone for, being as it is an act of class oppression.
Oh, there's more, much more.

If that was 2015 I must be a year younger

"To our Marxist intellectual, being a competent, caring parent is something to atone for, being as it is an act of class oppression."

This view is not surprising at all, as one of the basic tenants of Marxism is that the state should replace the parents and be every child's mother and father. That way the true socialist utopian man and woman can be created and molded.

How can there be THIS much stupidity in the world? HOW?!?

Okay, I realize that this is merely a plaintive whine, but it is really all I have left.

@Harkov
I feel your pain, man

D'ya think the blatent Smearedia in Canada, the one who convinced the electorate to put another Lybrano Majority Government in Power over your Tax-Dollars, will ever be put aside? Naw the same group of Maritime "Give me More"- and the same Province of "Just in Time to make us feel more Important" will continue beg and cheat. This means The Liberal Party of Canada/Ontario/Quebec will continue to use your Tax-Dollars to fund them with ever-increasing Billion $$ grants and needless Advertising to promote the Librano Agenda.

Hence the emergence of the SUPER-SIZED MODEL and the desire for state run daycare.

I pack an extra 40 or 50 pounds. In my case it's all about sloth and gluttony. I must be the only one.

Wasn't global warming the cause of terrorism? Who is to say that
a lack of socialism could not rid us of Bertha Butt?

So, did I use a bad word? Is that why my comment wasn't posted or is it in moderation purgatory?

I guess in some respects, you could give credence to the obesity/socialism thingy, The Ukrainians in the 1930's discovered a fast weight loss program under Joe Stalin's socialism called the holodomor.

Just a minute........I thought socialism is weight loss program.

David, thank you so much for collecting these "gems". I'm constantly reminded that such writers epitomize the best the Left has to offer. Proof positive why society is so screwed up.

I think I've got it. I think I know the rational sufficient explanation for so much bizarreness on the extremes of the pol. spectrum.

classic OCD, obsessive compulsive disorder. It all fits. the unyielding lock on a certain view, the repeated similar behaviour in other areas, and the rampant 'insanity' scoffed at as a 'mental disorder'. That's precisely what it is, a mental condition affecting upwards of 10+ % of the general population. as such we need to feel sympathy for them. and not give 1 millimeter, nay, not 1 *angstrom unit* to their demands because we are not really dealing with the individual, we are dealing with a mental disorder and must NOT cater to it. it does not help the individual by caving in to their demands because that only reinforces the negative behaviour.

You do your extreme leftist and rightist acquaintances a favour by not giving ground in hopes that it gives the 'rational them' pause and breathing space, to see reality.

It is increasingly obvious that these brown women simply cannot get over the fact that they are not white women ... you know ... with lovely blond, red, or brunette hair ... no hair on the back .... wider choice of lip gloss. White goes with anything ... brown ... no so much. You just get tired of those earth-tones after awhile. life is so unfair.
