The Nanny State’s ‘Common Sense’

See the source image

I heard someone on the radio today defending New York ex-Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s various bans–large sodas, too much salt, smoking, etc.–as “common sense.”

“For all practical purposes,” the speaker argued, “we  have socialized medicine in New York City. If you get sick, we have to treat you. But why should we have to pay all that money treating medical problems that people have brought on themselves by doing things that aren’t good for their health? It’s really just common sense to ban those things.” (I am simplifying here, but that’s the argument: I’ve heard it before, and so have you.)

It seems to be common sense; but the question that must arise is, “Well, then, where do you stop?”

How intrusive do you want the government to be? If it’s going to ban unhealthy actions–eating too much fast food, drinking too much soda, what have you–why not mandate healthful behavior? Wouldn’t that save a lot of money? Go to bed at such-and-such a time. Get up in time to do your mandatory calisthenics. If you have to go anywhere, walk or ride your bike. And we’ll check to make sure you do those things. We’ll hire a whole army of busybodies to keep tabs on you.

I think the term for that kind of life is “dystopia.” Or “perpetual childhood.” If that’s common sense, they can keep it.

 


‘Trans’ Folly Puts Lives at Risk

If he says he’s Napoleon, does that make him Napoleon?

Is there any way to save our mother country, Britain? Or are they too far gone?

A booklet put out by Public Health England urges men who say they’re women–“trans women”–to get cervical smear tests for cancer even though these mentally ill men don’t have a cervix (https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/5341098/men-who-identify-as-women-are-invited-for-cervical-smear-without-a-cervix/).

This is a waste of limited medical resources. While doctors are checking for cervical cancer in wackos who don’t have a cervix, the booklet goes on to say that women who say they’re men–who do have a cervix, unless they’ve mislaid it–should not be offered breast screenings and cervical cancer checks in case it offends them.

For the record, and because we have an obligation to speak the truth, there is no such thing as a “trans person.” There are only mentally ill persons who say they’re something they’re not.

But now in Merrie England, where the National Health just might be running short of money, they’re going to fritter away doctors’ time and expertise, and time and space in medical facilities, checking men for cervical cancer just because these profoundly disturbed men insist they’re women–

And someone’s going to die because no doctor was available to give him or her a medical procedure when he or she needed it, because the doctor was busy checking a man for cervical cancer.

This is about as good an argument as I have ever heard for keeping government out of health care. Way, way out. Because “trans” is politics, not medical science. Because “trans” is a delusion, not the truth.

It has to stop. And we had better stop it before God does.
