Godwin’s Law needs to be updated in this age of bans and eugenics
Leg-iron observes that Godwin’s Law needs to be updated. Whether discussing the smoking ban or the many other authoritarian measures which are now in place, it is difficult to avoid the obvious similarities with Nazism.
And as in 1930’s Germany, there are millions of people in the UK today who are happy the way freedoms are being removed. Selfish non-smokers (and ex-smokers, like Hitler!) love the smoking ban because everywhere is now smoke-free, even the places they never went into and never intend to visit in the future – ever. They believe the polluting propaganda exhaled by fakecharities like ASH and think that everyone needs to comply.
Similarly, envirofascists believe the selective data they are fed and want to impose controls on the rest of us.
Had I not experienced an all-time low in motivation last week, I would have blogged about the American “charity” that has landed in Britain to hand out money to drug addicts to be sterilised. A YouGov poll out yesterday shows less than half the respondents believe this eugenics method to be morally wrong.
There is an unusually high number of don’t knows for a survey, reflecting the moral confusion which now reigns.
To bang on about Marie Stopes again, and I think it is worth repeating as the fakecharity named after her is a major player in the abortion and sterilisation trade,
Marie Stopes [was] a feminist who opened the first birth control clinic in Britain in 1921 as well as being a Nazi sympathizer and a eugenicist who advocated that non-whites and the poor be sterilized.
Stopes, a racist and an anti-Semite, campaigned for selective breeding to achieve racial purity, a passion she shared with Adolf Hitler in adoring letters and poems that she sent the leader of the Third Reich.
The feminist also attended the Nazi congress on population science in Berlin in 1935, while calling for the “compulsory sterilisation of the diseased, drunkards, or simply those of bad character.” Stopes acted on her appalling theories by concentrating her abortion clinics in poor areas so as to reduce the birth rate of the lower classes.
Stopes left most of her estate to the Eugenics Society, an organization that shared her passion for racial purity and still exists today under the new name The Galton Institute. The society has included members such as Charles Galton Darwin (grandson of the evolutionist), Julian Huxley and Margaret Sanger.
Like Stopes, this latest atrocity of a “charity” believes that no life at all is better than a chance at life and that people who are disadvantaged will remain that way forever. As a former unemployable alcoholic myself, Marie Stopes and “Project Prevention” would have wanted me to have a vasectomy to avoid the danger of me polluting humanity with offspring who might have a less-than-perfect start in life.
With all this going on, can we now declare Godwin’s Law to be dead?
