The current version of the majority in the Supreme Court shows consistent overpowering of the minority. Clearly these boys in majority long for the old days where the strong survived and the meek died. Like many in the public they are tired of those annoying minorities seeking some means of being included. It’s Herbert Spencer and survival of the fittest all over again. Eugenics doesn’t just mean finding the right partner for your son or daughter it is now building a group, community, class that lives, breeds, and excels within their own world, without contamination.
I guess they forgot reading all of those books and case studies in school showing how the strong become excessive and need some law and order to keep the everyday, working people safe and able to excel. Oh, yeah, right, we don’t need the working people anymore. We’re creating a neoslave economy where low income, service, and manufacturing labor is essentially unimportant. Machines will in the next two decades take over another 45% of labor jobs in a market where there is too much labor already.
If you can’t make money off cheap production in resource then you make it off capital, passive wealth rules because you don’t have to work, it’s taxed less or hide the money, and you can pass it along to those worthless children that don’t get the value of work but are still your children. Entitlement has always been born and held dear by the immoral rich. It’s not the money, it’s the immorality.
The neoslaves watch endless versions of monarchies and vampires on TV hoping to be like them because you can’t overcome such power or difference. Where even the good guys who are really quite evil get killed off. Who would have thought I’d pine for General Hospital.
The distinguishing characteristic of this SCOTUS case is the town meeting versus legislative meetings. The first now allows sectarian prayer and the later has always been allowed to have ceremonial deism. The difference is in respect for others. And bias.
We know if you wish to succeed you need to dress for success, to be noticed and respected.
We know if you wear red you’re more likely to win in competitions.
We know if you see $9.99 on a price tag you really will think it’s less that $10.00, even if you know it’s not true.
Biases this small exist. Imagine if you, as a town council person, have to deal with some bastard that is a bastard and shows it by leaving the room during a prayer. Why respect that idiot? Why give them anything?
The Supreme Court says if Joe or Suzy Bagodonuts go to a town meeting to discuss a variance, a zoning ordinance, or any such thing and you leave the room because they are praying to a god unfamiliar to you no one will notice, care, or have a perception of you. But of course if you’re not Christian you can’t possibly be moral, or American.
This is the Supreme Court that insists if someone buys you lunch you won’t have any bias or positive feelings towards them that might encourage a future favor. After all patriarchy is benevolent. We’ll take care of you, step right this way.
They also insist that money doesn’t matter in elections because we all vote according to conscience and media doesn’t affect our opinions at all.
It’s sad to be 56 years old and watching a Benjamin Button political farce where as I grow older the politicians grow infantile.
Won’t be long until the only way to become wealthy for most of us will be to marry wealthy.
Justice Kennedy and his fellow ilk prove history is enough to continue a practice proving he’s stuck in the past. Oh for the good old days when labor was cheap, wealth went to the righteous, and the right stuff ruled. Wait, that’s right now.
