Reader comment on item: Will Europe Resist Islamization?
in response to reader comment: PC's insidious influence

Submitted by trans-parere (Canada), Apr 23, 2008 at 23:20

Unfortunately we as humans ricochet between extremes and seemingly can not stand consistency of reason based on common sense and the rights of the individual. A great many, like herd animals, must club up to create an artificial sense of being "deserving". Belonging. True intellect or the example of constructive thought has been replaced by the "non construct" or the DEconstructing of all prior eminent thinking as a way to place themselves as equally disciplined to rigorous thought.

This leaves us with in a void, a period of no works of higher constructive thought, and no functioning intellectual growth having our education being supplanted by moral relativist who debate "feelings" and "no one right way" as intellectually superior method to working through issues rather than using honest comparative thought and old school values and ethics mitigated by a judicious use of common sense, and what is effectively right and wrong and no bloody nonsense.

We have regressed backwards negating the enlightenment and seem to be returning to a reliance upon non thought punctuated with dogma. Blind assertion is held equally as valid as in-depth fore-thought and reasoned argument.

Cheers

P.S. If you don't vote for Obama you're a racist. If you don't vote for Hillary your a misogynist lout. The debate is not who is best for the leadership of the party but rather which participant in the end holds the moral high ground of the "bestest" social victim. GOOOO DEMOCRATS.
