Our children have been taught in grade school for decades now to despise their parents and other adults who smoke. PETA, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, is now similarly indoctrinating children to the idea that those who eat meat, or go fishing, or visit a circus, are sadists and murderers.
From the Center for Consumer Freedom: "In a newly updated report, ‘Your Kids, PETA’s Pawns,’ the Center for Consumer Freedom explores how one group, the $31 million People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), utilizes its vast resources to attract children and teenagers — the next generation of potential meat eaters, milk drinkers, circus-goers, and fishermen — to its cult-like crusade. In its 2007 annual report PETA boasts of having ‘the largest youth membership of any animal rights organization,’ with over 800,000 Peta members."
Our society is paranoid, hypochondriacal, hateful, hysterical, very sick indeed. As it was at the time fascism arose near a century ago, we exalt and empower the sick and the fanatical, at the expense of rationality and freedom. This is a very profound problem. Today’s fascists, as did the old ones, seize the minds of youth. Good men of good conscience must arise to put a fast stop to this. It has already progressed too far. Societal decency must be restored forcibly. Fanatics must be disempowered and disgraced. Then the healing can begin.
