BRAVO, BRAVO Professor! Speak the truth and tell it like it is! Thank you for this essay that should be required reading!
Indeed: "I am sickened to live in a society that treats a malignant illness as just another legitimate point of view, when in fact it’s the very disease that is killing us. We don’t treat a heroin epidemic as an innocuous choice that some may opt for and some may reject. We don’t treat cholera as just another flavor of ice cream that some prefer while others go for strawberry. And we don’t welcome Nazism as a legitimate belief system that deserves the same consideration as any other old model of race relations a society might adopt. So why do we treat ‘conservatism’ like some harmless cup of tea that some choose over Earl Grey or Jasmine?"
The ‘conservative’ ideology is a mechanism to disenfranchise, to exploit, to discriminate, to despoil and destroy our Mother Earth, all Her natural systems, and all Her creatures ability to live, including humans, to steal/take from the wider human society to further a narrow, base, construct of greed and self interest above all else regardless the consequences! “racism, sexism, homophobia, xenophobia, military aggression, environmental destruction and armed robbery of the 99 percent”
‘Conservatism’ is a cancer and parasite that is killing the host and must be destroyed…“It’s a murder weapon metastasized to global proportions.”
The ‘opposition party’ - the “feeble and ineffectual (on a good day) Democratic Party, and especially its last two presidents” (and last nominee!) - is as complicit to this mechanism of destruction as the con perpetrators and the ginger pig himself “spent a lifetime doing little but shameless self-promotion and fabricating scams - unable to speak truthfully about nearly anything”
To paraphrase Dwight Eisenhower This is not a way of life at all, in any true sense, it is our Mother and humanity used as objects to exploit, rob, and destroy to further the systems that empower the malignant greed and wealth of a very few…
