There are American women in my Twitter feed who think they are more oppressed than women in Saudi Arabia. I. Can't. Even." -- John Podhoretz
Never before have so many claimed to be so oppressed and mistreated over so little as Americans in 2017.
We have pampered college students at expensive private schools having hissy fits because someone they disagree with is allowed to speak at an event on campus theyre not even required to attend.
Philosophically speaking, and I am speaking philosophically here, are there people who should be?
At least rounded up and deported/interred.
Slowing down in my old age.
The author is white. No matter how good his message is, it will be ignored by them.
And we have poor who suffer more from diseases of obesity then the historical diseases of want!
Hey, if he was Black he would be ignored as an Uncle Tom.
Some Blacks ignore anyone with common sense.
Author has not met my wife.
Saudi Arabia? Venezuela? Iran? Pakistan? North Korea perhaps?
No 4-5 star hotels
No drivers please
Well, thats true too.
Yeah....He must be a racist from a long line of racists, living in a racist country. src
I got up early. Still slow though. ;-)
Actually though there is one group who gets legally oppressed then killed-— aborted babies. Exploited too by demented, greedy and selfish LIEberals.
As a corollary to this - I hear the constant refrain from Catholics and Protestants of all types who continue to harp on poverty and “the poor.” No doubt Christ spoke about this, but to me, as I look around America today, the calls to materially “help the poor” have become just empty slogans.
But for possibly the first time in history, America and the West have created a surfeit of material wealth. The mass of people’s problems, IMHO, don’t spring from real poverty, but rather the opposite - the effects of materialism, modern narcissism, entertainment, and the cultural-marxist politics of these things.
I don’t want to preach cynicism, but I see a need for an “update” in Christian attitudes.
I disagree. There’s one group still oppressed: taxpayers.
Your post brings to mind the panhandlers on streets and traffic intersections. Are we to give to them helping meet their needs or is their ‘begging’ a get free money scheme perhaps to feed their addictions?
