For all the talk in the media this last week of sexual assault, the ironic thought arises that the basis of the left is they want to deprive you of the ability to say “no.”
That is, when they want something and you have it, your job is to hand it over stat. Whether it is your money, your country, opportunities, power, or even your sexual activity — you didn’t say no because of racism did you? — they want you to have no way of defending yourself against their demands.
As inoculations start with a weaker version of the pathogen, it makes sense to watch this in its simplest form. A woman — this is probably fake, because most such columns are fake — writes in to an advice column:
I have noticed that on Halloween, what seems like 75 percent of the trick-or-treaters are clearly not from this neighborhood. Kids arrive in overflowing cars from less fortunate areas. I feel this is inappropriate. Halloween isnâ€™t a social service or a charity in which I have to buy candy for less fortunate children. Obviously this makes me feel like a terrible person, because whatâ€™s the big deal about making less fortunate kids happy on a holiday? But it just bugs me, because we already pay more than enough taxes toward actual social services. Should Halloween be a neighborhood activity, or is it legitimately a free-for-all in which people hunt down the best candy grounds for their kids?
And here is what the overpaid, coddled media darling responds with:
Your whine makes me kind of wish that people from the actual poor side of town come this year not with scary costumes but with real pitchforks. Stop being callous and miserly and go to Costco, you cheapskate, and get enough candy to fill the bags of the kids who come one day a year to marvel at how the 1 percent live.
The message is clear: if you have anything, and you have more than the rest of us, you owe it to us. The weapon wielded here is guilt. You who have more than the hive need to fork it over or you are bad. Not only are you bad, you are selfish.
This kind of logic sounds good to spoiled first-world people in easy jobs they hate with fractured families they distrust because those are breeding conditions for the brat. A brat is both entitled and filled with ill-will because the price of that entitlement is obedience and the brat rages against that any time it can. Suburban women sure they are Jesus on the cross because of all the career opportunities they gave up to raise children, whiny office workers who believe the world should pay them more attention despite their menial function, and the endless stream of people who contribute nothing but obedience and are never satisfied with whatever their given: all use this parasitic dual attack of guilt and demand.
They want to take from you any weapon including logic itself to defend yourself against their demands. When they arrive, you give it up. Because they’re human too, of course, and no other reason. Never mind that humanity only reached is current height by denying that principle and insisting that useful humans get rewarded while non-useful ones do not, so that natural selection is preserved despite the wealth-sharing tendencies of civilization itself.
As it turns out, our writers have covered this topic before. Not only that, but they have pointed out how the free candy feast obliterates the point of the holiday. Letting in kids from outside the neighborhood finishes off the community feel, and it is why many neighborhoods in America seem to be shutting down early on Halloween or not participating at all.
