Earlier today in Oslo, Norway, President Barack Obama finally, formally accepted his Nobel Prize for "peace." But where are the internationally-acclaimed prizes for "liberty" and "justice"? These are far worthier goals -- far loftier ideals. Politically speaking, and in other ways too, what the world needs above all else -- today and always -- is individual liberty and universal justice!
If the Nobel Committee is going to embrace questionable, unworthy goals and dubious, lowly ideals, why not sink all the way down to giving out renowned awards for international "security," or even multinational "stability"?
Clearly there are times when peace is desirable -- such as when there are no foreign threats or attacks; such as when no-one is trying to enslave you. But at other times war is desirable -- such as when others are threatening, or attacking, or attempting to conquer and enslave.
But what is always desirable -- a pure, perfect ideal of infinite value -- is freedom and individual rights. This means liberty and justice for all! It's high time the Nobel Committee, or some group far better, starting awarding prestigious Prizes for that!
As usual, the most popular words in the commie’s speech were I and Me. What an absolute maggot!!!!
Obviously if Obama can win the Nobel by inheriting a war and proclaiming the necessity, surely Bush should have won one too.
I actually thought this guy sounded surprisingly a lot like Bush. I think the Nobel Committee maybe regrets giving him the Peace Prize since he made such a good case for war! ;-)
Good point. But these Euro-weenie surrender monkeys hate Bush and love Obama.
And “peace” is still a largely irrelevant issue. We need LIBERTY and JUSTICE on this earth — not peace. (And not “democracy” either.)
To me, the Nobel Peace Prize lost all value after Al Gore recieved it.
I agree. But Gandhi, King, Mandela, Arafat, and many others are even WORSE lowlifes, and even MORE undeserving — at least if you assume “peace” secretly means justice.
