Final Word from Thursday, May 27, 2021

We live in the era of destruction, during which the Western world is systematically tearing down many of the monuments of its civilization built over generations, some of which were good, and some bad. We first wrote these words here five years ago, when the issue was a new way of interpreting constitutions so that the rights of everyone in the world were put on the same level as the citizens of a given country. With covid, the rights of the individual were revoked in favor of a public good defined to mean that any group identified by the government could be shown special treatment or mistreatment, even if the net gain to society was vastly negative. Entire economies and states of health, education and human relations were torn apart, all in the name of keeping them together. Covid was the culmination of the loss of human reason, which had set us apart from other animals. We accepted that if our politicians and medical experts lead us over the cliff, it is the herd's duty to follow. [ Czech Republic covid-19 coronavirus United States of America Donald Trump ]
