The Constitutional Law of World State

“What’s frustrated people is that I’ve not been able to implement every aspect of what I said in 2008. Well, it turns out our Founders designed a system that makes it more difficult to bring about change than I would like sometimes. But what we have been able to do is move in the right direction.
“And you know what? One of the things about being president is you get better as time goes on,” he added.
“I hate to question people’s motives … but I think this is certainly indicative of an ideology that the policy goals of an administration trump religious freedom,” added Rubio, a devout Catholic at the top of the GOP vice presidential shortlist. “Is this really necessary? This is not a key provision of the health care bill. … Why is this a fight they would pick?”
“Who are we going to really lose over this? Ron Paul voters?” asked a senior aide to a Senate Democrat, who thinks the administration should have handled the situation more quietly by punting a decision until after Election Day. “Maybe it wouldn’t have mattered. … Catholics who don’t believe in condoms aren’t going to vote for Barack Obama anyway. Let’s get real.”
So this issue is just another example of those wacky Catholics ranting on and on about, you know, Ozzie and Harriet.
And in completely, totally unrelated other news – nah, our kultur isn’t sick, what’re you talkin about. Headline reads: Libraries in Washington state are continuing to “struggle with” (my quote marks) the issue of internet access and pornography.
A mother with her two children said they saw a man watching what she described as hard-core porn and asked the librarian to act, but was refused. She then wrote to the library and contacted the media, according to SeattlePI.com. Despite the complaint, the Seattle Public Library held fast to its policy of unrestricted online access for adults, SeattlePI.com reported.
SeattlePI.com said the King County Library System has a similar policy: It only filters kids’ access on computers. The American Library Association endorses the same stance.
“Sometimes, in a library, you’re going to see information that’s going to make you uncomfortable,” Barbara Jones, director of the association’s intellectual freedom office, told radio station KUOW Wednesday.
This should shock no-one brought up in Central London Hatchery and Conditioning Centre. Indeed for such persons it is not the man viewing the “information” who is doing anything “pornographic”. Instead it is the very existence of the mother which is “pornographic” since she is a relic of a bygone monogamy.
I only hope she’s wearing her Malthusian belt and remembers to show up for the mandatory orgy-porgy. If she doesn’t the World State police will take her away for psychological counseling. And speaking of Malthusian belts, consider my new favorite Mustafa Mond-ism: “twin reduction”.
Things would have been different if we were 15 years younger or if we hadn’t had children already or if we were more financially secure. If I had conceived these twins naturally, I wouldn’t have reduced this pregnancy, because you feel like if there’s a natural order, then you don’t want to disturb it. But we created this child in such an artificial manner—in a test tube, choosing an egg donor, having the embryo placed in me.
Viva la vida soma. William Saletan:
You can’t pretend that one is precious and the other is just tissue. You’re killing the same creature to which you’re dedicating your life.
Nothing happening here, peeps. Back to your Feelies and your Centrifugal Bumble-puppy. Remember now – “no leisure from pleasure”.
Mother, monogamy, romance. High spurts the fountain; fierce and foamy the wild jet. The urge has but a single outlet. My love, my baby. No wonder those poor pre-moderns were mad and wicked and miserable. Their world didn’t allow them to take things easily, didn’t allow them to be sane, virtuous, happy. What with mothers and lovers, what with the prohibitions they were not conditioned to obey, what with the temptations and the lonely remorses, what with all the diseases and the endless isolating pain, what with the uncertainties and the poverty—they were forced to feel strongly. And feeling strongly (and strongly, what was more, in solitude, in hopelessly individual isolation), how could they be stable?
