The Devil’s Publicist, maybe?
See, if the Devil is on trial somebody has to represent him. If he can’t afford an attorney one will be appointed to him by law. But nobody has to do P.R. work for him. So doesn’t that make his publicist a worse person than his lawyer?
What brings this question on? One of the reasons for this blog was that I’d quit writing. I realized that if I kept it up eventually there’d be enough material for a book. I’d toyed with “Newmerica”, the “Constitution 2.0″-based country that hopefully will arise from America’s ashes. But it’s never gotten me fired up enough for the enormous effort a book requires.
Nor am I exactly excited about realizing I’m the “Devil’s Publicist”. But my parents visited yesterday. My Mom had been thinking about my argument that letting women vote was a bad idea. She’s decided she agrees.
(For the record: I’m only against letting women vote in federal elections. They can take over all the others for all I care, as long as everyone remains free to travel and live where they desire. With a properly restrained national government they could control far more government wealth and power than men do. Although, if you love liberty, it’d be even better if they never voted at all. )
That position, combined with my defense of white privilege, made me think about some other WORMy arguments. Let’s review, sans links for now:
“White” people deserve their privileged positions.
Women voters are helping to destroy the U.S.A.
The Democratic Party is almost pure evil.
The so-called “United Nations” is almost pure evil.
Islam is almost pure evil.
The “black community” needs to grow the hell up.
Progressives are mentally retarded. (Wait, I haven’t formally proven that one yet. Maybe next post? It’s a very simple and scientific argument.)
The federal government has turned parasitic and needs putting down.
The “Talky Classes”–Government workers, teachers and academia, “journalists”, media, entertainment, have also turned evil and need putting down.
Nuclear power is the least-bad option for electricity.
The Catholic Church has child abuse problems because it departs from the Bible. And I like most Catholics!
None of these positions are intentionally provocative and outrageous. They are just where reason has led me. So obviously I want to know what you guys think is my most offensive writing. (Giving me a mulligan on the Joe Biden Rapist Rant.)
Also. The Devil’s Publicist is a good title, maybe a great one, but that doesn’t mean it’s perfect. I welcome any and all of you to label…whatever the heck it is we do here.
