It’s not so much the ban itself – it’s the mindset

Oops – I think the EU got one of them – I count only four – perhaps the fifth took the picture

You probably saw the Mail article on banning references to the traditional family [to do with the Famous Five books] and the same story appears at the Daily Bell.

Now I don’t know if this is real or somebody’s canard but assuming it to be real, then it is truly insanity. As the Bell notes:

Dominant Social Theme: People need to let other people alone, even if Leviathan itself must be employed to make it happen.

Free-Market Analysis: Whenever we look, we are assaulted by unbelievable legislative actions. This has got to be the most incredible idea yet: To legislate portrayals of the family out of existence.

What kinds of people come up with these ideas? What kind of people vote on them? This is not some outlier in North Korea, not some gambit in Mongolia. This initiative is being seriously proposed in the heart of the West, in the supposed cradle of civilization.

These people are not just announcing their intentions to attack the family unit, but to ban by force any mention of it.

OK, let’s accept, under duress, that this might not be precisely the EU intention and time will tell but one can substitute any issue of modern life, from Islam to painting one metre long double yellow lines and the story is the same. It’s all about people who have truly lost the plot in pursuit of the narrative.

At the end of my trilogy, there is a chapter where the PTB know the ragtag has holed up on an island somewhere and the data is deliberately being withheld from the international database by a good person or persons unknown, so the PTB decide to bomb every island possibly fitting the description, in an attempt to wipe out this small band of dissidents.

This bansturbation mindset, this “stamping out” mindset really must stop, this nannying, this fear of people making up their own minds and developing discretion and initiative. The only valid censoring is that of parents of their own children and the school’s support in that.

    My reaction to Enid Blyton, from about 5 minutes after I could string written/printed words together, was to want to VOMIT violently!

    However, this is no reason to ban her peurile & infantilst fantasies …..
