Philosophy Wire by Spiros Kakos [2014-03-08]:
Freedom of speech is denied [see Dieudonné case - 1, 2], but freedom of celebrating abnormal [see gay marriages - 3] and freedom of celebrating unethicality [see "French President Francois Hollande has confirmed his separation from his partner Valerie Trierweiler" - 4] is celebrated.
No, I am not saying that gay people should not have rights. I am saying they should not have the right to raise children as if they were "normal" - when it is obvious they are not.
No, I am not saying to allow racism. I am saying to stop seeing Nazi symbols everywhere by turning upside down/ right/ left any image we see only in order to look more "democratic".
And yes, I do say that we should not fuck other women when we are with another woman.
It seems simple. But "progressive" people have the tendency of making simple things complicated...
It is very hard to be considered one of the most progressive states in the world. You are somehow forced to have "progress" in every field of life, even there where the right decisions have already been made. Change is considered "progress" even if it is change to something worse. Being static is considered "bad". You want to move so that noone considers you "regressive". But you ignore the possibility that you may have already reached the right place.
"Newer is better".
"Modern is wiser".
"The old ones did not know".
Men with a childish way of thinking. Ruling nations...
