As the West sinks into terminal decline, it becomes a fulltime job simply to chronicle each new case of madness and idiocy. The West is becoming expert at self-destruction, and the examples of its deterioration are the stuff of daily headlines.
Because so much lunacy had been occurring in the past week or so, perhaps the best way to cover it all is to simply provide several vignettes of some of the more notable cases. Let me start with Holland. If there is one nation to get a regular mention on this site, it is the Netherlands. Leave it to the Dutch to come up with one outrageous bit of madness after another.
The latest episode is this: as of today smoking tobacco in Dutch restaurants is illegal. Hey, sounds good, you say. Well, it would be, except for one minor detail. You see, major Dutch cities like Amsterdam are notorious for their marijuana cafes. You see, people can still toke away on reefers in their cafes, but they dare not puff on that evil weed, tobacco.
As one coffee shop owner remarked, “It’s absurd. In other countries they look to see whether you have marijuana in your cigarette, here they’ll look to see if you’ve got cigarette in your marijuana.” The Dutch disease is obviously spreading, and getting worse.
Just what were these guys thinking? Never mind that the marijuana smoked today is many times stronger – and therefore much more risky and dangerous – than that smoked by us hippies back in the 60s. The scientific research on the harm of cannabis is rock solid, and potheads are doing themselves tremendous harm.
And never mind that “passive smoking” is every bit as risky, if not more, with marijuana than it is with tobacco. You can get high even if you don’t want to simply by sitting in one of these cannabis cafes.
But leave it to the Dutch to allow marijuana use, while cracking down on tobacco. One can only conclude that the lawmakers in Holland are all potheads, or old stoned-out hippies. There is obviously no one left with intact brain cells amongst the ruling elites of Holland.
But things are not much better in nearby Sweden. Consider an absolutely whacko discrimination case there. A school has complained to the Swedish Parliament about a gross case of human rights abuse. The school says an 8-year-old school boy has violated two fellow students’ rights by not inviting them to his birthday party.
I kid you not! Let me repeat this, in case you do not get it. An 8-year-old did not invite everyone in his class to his birthday party, so his school is screaming discrimination. How horrible. So now it is heading to the big boys in politics to settle.
Now I know I might be the odd man out here, but it seems that I was fairly selective in whom I invited to my birthday parties when I was but a tyke. Indeed, I discriminated in favour of some, and against some others. Back then it was not seen as a crime to make such choices.
But things are different now. The burgeoning rights industry has gone ballistic, and Political Correctness has a stranglehold on the West. So our intellectualoids in Sweden have decided this nasty abuse of human rights must be dealt with harshly and forthrightly. Remind me not to go to Sweden for my next holidays.
The third item concerns the US and Australia, two other leaders in the great liberal death wish. It seems that a number of Australian homosexuals are heading to the US to buy babies. You heard me right. They are paying up to $80,000 to create a baby using surrogate arrangement in the US.
These rent-a-womb women are being paid big bikkies to sell their babies to homosexual couples. Known as “one-stop baby shopping,” the scheme allows childless homosexual couples (and what else could they be?) to shop around for their baby of choice.
According to press reports, the couples “pick a donor from a list of 400 university students and her eggs are then implanted in a different woman who bears the child.” Kind of like going to McDonalds and ordering your own personalised burger. Except a bit more expensive.
Never mind how the child is going to fare in such a situation. Not only will the child be denied the right to his or her own biological mother and father, but the child will grow up to one day discover that he or she came into existence not unlike a fancy new red sports car: made to order to please adults’ whims and cravings.
A doctor at one of California’s fertility clinics offering this “service” said that these homosexuals “are almost all professional, working men who obviously have a bit of money and desperately want a child.” I suppose it will be a waste of time to inform these desperate househusbands that there is a much easier way of getting a child: nature’s way. Find a girl, settle down, and the children bit comes pretty easy.
But these folk want to live their disordered lifestyles, and think they can just chuck a baby into the mix like they might the latest Kylie Minogue CD. This is about one thing, and one thing only: selfish, immature adults buying babies as fashion accessories. And who gives a rip how the children will turn out in such bizarre arrangements?
These three cases (and many more could be produced) demonstrate a West in a downward spiral, with moral blindness matched only by a deficiency in common sense. The only question worth asking at this point is how much further down can the West go before it becomes a mere memory.
I for one will keep chronicling these steps to the asylum until our elites determine that this site is one big hate crime, and they imprison me for my crimes. But until that happens, I will continue to act as a watchman. But my days may well be numbered.
