Un excelent articol al lui Mihail Neamţu mi-a luat vorbele din gînd. Tocmai am venit din aceeaşi zonă din Oltenia, unde, în urmă cu 20 de ani puteai să laşi poarta, casa deschisă… azi îţi fură butelia de sub nas, unde în urmă cu 20 de ani fetele veneau de la tren la 11 noaptea… azi se tem de violul vîrtosului ţăran român, drogat deja cu Cancan şi Libertatea. Acesta este satul romînex. Restul Citiţi la el.
Un alt aritcol care mi-a atras atenţia este Sex, Lies, and Abortion, excelent articol al lui Dinesh D’Souza, un apologet nu la fel de cunoscut ca Ravi Zacharias, dar poate că mult mai ordonat în idei.
If I’m on the right track, pro-life arguments are not likely to succeed by simply continuing to stress the humanity of the fetus. The opposition already knows this, as probably do most women who have an abortion. Rather, the pro-life movement must take into account the larger cultural context of the sexual revolution that invisibly but surely sustains the triumphant advocates of abortion.
It won’t be easy, but somehow the case against abortion must include a case against sexual libertinism. It is time to return to the drawing board.

I was just sitting there crying, thinking, ‘I can’t do that,’ . . . And I felt in my body, this is meant to be. God does things for a reason, and I just felt like it was the right thing that was happening in my life.”As she thought about her decision, Kardashian concluded that „all the reasons why I wouldn’t keep the baby were so selfish.” She also received encouragement from her doctor. „My doctor told me there is nothing you will ever regret about having the baby, but he was like, ‘You may regret not having the baby.’ And I was like: That is so true.”
The Culture of Death looms as a massive threat, but its foundations are crumbling. Unexpected witnesses such as Sarah Kliff and Kourtney Kardashian help us to see how moral insight can emerge from unexpected experiences, reflections, and witnesses. Some of the most profound witnesses to the horror of abortion and the sanctity of human life do not even know that they are so. The evil of abortion cannot be hidden once it is seen, and a voice for life cannot be forgotten once it is heard.
The obvious question is this – how is it that feminists, the abortion industry, and the advocates of abortion rights get away with their claim that abortion liberates women? In truth, the availability of abortion has served to liberate irresponsible men from duty, morality, and responsibility. Of course, the even greater tragedy is the death of unborn children by the millions. Only the Culture of Death would present the slaughter of the innocents as liberation.
The most important argument against the service of women in combat is moral. The decision to expose women to combat, to stretch and erase gender boundaries, and to normalize the exposure of women to violence represents a moral revolution. The injury to our moral character as a nation is only increased by the subterfuge of violating policy and circumventing regulations.
Are we a nation ready to admit that our men must be accompanied by women on the battlefield? Are we ready to break down the necessary lines of respect between men and women? Is this really who we are? Will Americans look the other way and refuse to see this quiet circumvention of morality? Far more than the future of the military is at stake.
