Have you ever marvelled at the insanities of Health & Safety regulations ? Emanating from the EUSSR Commission / Politburo they seem designed to mollycoddle people to the point of catatonia. British soldiers were told they could no longer fire actual mortars during training because even with ear defenders the sound of the explosion breached the 137 decibel limit. Kites have been banned from beaches in case they might fall and injure someone as have sticking plasters from workplaces in case of allergic reactions and children from taking part in sack races.
The days of being accountable for your own stupidity and/or carelessness seem to be gone. Tripped over your feet as you drunkenly stagger out of a pub? Sue for compensation. Whom do you sue? Doesn't really matter, the pub, the local authority...you're sure of a handsome cheque to soothe your recovery. A kid in Dublin, seriously injured when jumping onto the roof of a moving train sued the transport company and walked away with nearly half a million Euro. Somehow, in some unfathomable way the transport company was deemed at fault.
We're incubating a timid and indecisive society. Theodore Dalrymple, writing of the bureaucratic gridlock involved in resolving a simple pest control problem at a school suggests that "the aversion to risk even when there isn't any is a mark of modern society. It is aversion not to risk, but to metarisk, as it were: the risk of a risk. The pest controller wondered what would happen if the school ever had to face a real emergency. The staff were so unused to taking decisions for themselves that they would probably be paralyzed by indecision. The only decision of which they were now capable was the decision not to take a decision. Human agency is a faculty that has to be exercised or it withers, to be replaced by paralysis followed by obedience to protocol". [My emphasis].
Now tell me, how convenient is it for our globohomo masters to have their subjects reduced to cowering, indecisive, risk-averse drones? As convenient as rending them androgynous?
