Once upon a time “1984” by George Orwell was considered a must read for liberals who wanted to illustrate the dangers of an all encompassing, life governing, right denying government. Apparently this is no longer an issue they have concerns about. In Boston they have taken Big Brother to a new and somewhat frightening level
Now I have been a mom for more than 25 years. I have been a bike rider for more than 40 years. I realize that helmets can make children safer but is that not the parents responsibility? Not the governments. What’s next? Will they make your child get on a scale at school and tell them, “Sorry, you can’t have bread today, carrots sticks, celery and cucumbers are all you get”. After all we know that kids are overweight and it’s everybodys responsibility to look after the children. It takes a village you know. I guess it would be ok as well to go over to kids making out in the movies and have them hauled away to the precinct for their parents to collect them. You know what that behavior leads to and no one should be “punished” by a baby.
Why stop with kids? We could make adults go to school and get good grades or take away their cars. Drinking alcohol would be banned, it kills brain cells as well as endangers others in the society. Candy stores would be closed down as would ice cream parlors. Food would be rationed with someone in the government deciding how much you get according to your age, activity rate and fat content. Computers could have timers on them. Once you reach your alloted sit down time for the day, off it goes. How about people who have children left, right and sideways? We could sterilize the women and make eunuchsout of the men.
Maybe the best thing we can do is to take choice away from the rabble. Heaven knows they don’t know what to do with it. They are always doing the wrong thing or not doing the right thing or not doing it fast enough. Or maybe we could collectively MIND OUR OWN BUSINESS, for a change. Stop trying to fix someone’s life. Pay attention to your own. It’s that whole mote and beam thing. Oh, and that plan where everyone is saved but the plans organizer gets all the glory, laude and honor. Wonder who’s plan that is? If you really don’t know, try Revelations.
