The New Totalitarianism, "hate crime," and same-sex "marriage"

This classic Michael O'Brien essay covers the degeneration of democracy and the consequences this loss has for those who do not consent to the new generation of political correctness.

"The totalitarian begins with a seemingly benign re-education, but as he extends his grasp into more and more aspects of human life he gradually becomes hostile to everything outside of his own will."

"No grotesque executions. In some cases there may even be no visible dictator, only a system or a social philosophy which permeates and controls everything. Indeed, the world may appear to be perfectly normal. The philosopher Josef Pieper points out that this is the most dangerous form of totalitarianism of all, almost impossible to throw off, because it never appears to be what, in fact, it is."

"How long will it take for our people to understand that when humanist sentiments replace moral absolutes, it is not long before very idealistic people begin to invade human families in the name of the family, and destroy human lives in the name of humanity?"

"... in the modern age it takes little more than one generation to turn a war crime into an “act of compassion."
