Comment Of The Day: “And Even More Ukraine Invasion Ethics Points” [#1]

As our final Comment of the Day from the weekend just past, here is sooner 8728’s neat explanation for why NPR felt it necessary to calm its listeners and readers by telling them that the wise response to concern over the Ukraine crisis was make lasagna or get a massage, as described in “And Even More Ukraine Invasion Ethics Points…”

***

The comment about NPR not seeing their audience as adults makes a ton of sense. Much of the modern Left isn’t like the old time Left. Americans used to be mostly united on the values of hard work, duty, faithfulness in marriage, etc. Political differences didn’t make a ton of difference in personal behavior. Now, the left is saying gender doesn’t exist, you can define your own existence any way you want, polyamory is good, there is no limit to welfare, and other types of ideas. They refuse to accept limitations on reality.

If you think “Allow people the freedom to do almost anything (minus violence) and reduce personal responsibility to the bare minimum,” the modern progressive movement makes a ton of sense. It isn’t as confusing if you just think like a teenager. I don’t mean to be flippant or insulting, but more and more progressives just want a consequence-free society (unless you are a conservative).

The progressives think they can destroy almost every part of traditional morality and then still maintain a great nation. That won’t work.

I’m surprised the pacifists aren’t out saying Putin is just misunderstood.

  1. Allow people the freedom to do almost anything (minus violence)

    I have to take exception to this part. Have you ever lived anywhere that the Left governed without question? Try owning a gun. Or opening a business. Make sure you eat meat, but gas appliances, and own pets while you can, those are in the crosshairs for sure. And be careful what you say and who you say it to. In fact, apart from sex acts and abortions, I’m not sure what freedoms the Left explicitly protects anymore.

  2. “If you think ‘Allow people the freedom to do almost anything (minus violence) and reduce personal responsibility to the bare minimum,’ the modern progressive movement makes a ton of sense.”

    Certainly true except, (minus violence). Violence and the threat of violence including murder, is the primary leverage exerted by the modern regressive movement, aka wokeism.
    Even cancelling is a form of violence.
