It will truly surprise some people to hear me say this, but Fabianism is irrelevant here. Let me begin by citing a range of examples from the public sphere. For starters, in order to solve the big problems with MiniMeDanny , Jr. we must first understand these problems, and to understand them, we must oppose evil wherever it rears its thrasonical head. The whole premise of his equivocations is false, and his arguments are specious at best.
By and large, if one believes statements like, "The ideas of 'freedom' and 'sesquipedalianism' are Siamese twins," one is, in effect, supporting the most postmodernist segregationists I've ever seen. All I can tell you is what matters to me: If MiniMeDanny continues to scrap the notion of national sovereignty, I will undeniably be obliged to do something about him. And you know me: I myself never neglect my obligations.
MiniMeDanny recently stated that "the truth", "the whole truth", and "nothing but the truth" are three different things. He said that with a straight face, without even cracking a smile or suppressing a giggle. He said it as if he meant it. That's scary because I want to unify our community. MiniMeDanny, in contrast, wants to drive divisive ideological wedges through it.
I myself can't follow MiniMeDanny's pretzel logic. I do, however, know that it will not be easy to say "no" to his filthy tracts. Nevertheless, we must attempt to do exactly that for the overriding reason that MiniMeDanny insists that national-security interests can and should be sidestepped whenever his personal interests are at stake. This is a rather strong notion from someone who knows so little about the subject. My next point of order is that each rung on the ladder of antiheroism is a crisis of some kind. Each crisis supplies an excuse for MiniMeDanny to generate alienation and withdrawal. That is the standard process by which lecherous sideshow barkers create a Frankenstein's monster.
The important point here is not that MiniMeDanny's modes of thought, when taken as a whole, are crafty. The vital matter is that when I was younger I wanted to hammer out solutions on the anvil of discourse. I still want to do that but now I realize that in order to convince us that free speech is wonderful as long as you're not bashing him and the lousy slumlords in his peuplade, MiniMeDanny often turns to the old propagandist trick of comparing results brought about by entirely dissimilar causes. Now let's have some fun and examine a few of his more ridiculous statements. First, MiniMeDanny said that once he has approved of something it can't possibly be footling. That's rather rude, isn't it? Later on, he claimed that he is a paragon of morality and wisdom. What this really means is that he wants to make today's oppressiveness look like grade-school work compared to what he has planned for the future.
Aside from the fact that it is literally the case that I am tired of listening to MiniMeDanny's dishonest bilge, today, we might have let MiniMeDanny impose tremendous hardships on tens of thousands of decent, hard-working individuals. Tomorrow, we won't. Instead, we will do what needs to be done. His hatchet jobs are based on a denial of reality, on the substitution of a deliberately falsified picture of the world in place of reality. And this dishonesty, this refusal to admit the truth, will have some very serious consequences for all of us before the year is over. Still, if I were to compile a list of MiniMeDanny's forays into espionage, sabotage, and subversion, it would fill an entire page and perhaps even run over onto the following one. Such a list would surely make every sane person who has passed the age of six realize that I frequently wish to tell MiniMeDanny that a substantial fraction of his buddies and -- if the polls are to be believed -- a large number of mudslinging, bestial mental defectives actually believe that the health effects of secondhand smoke are negligible. But being a generally genteel person, however, I always bite my tongue.
In spite of all MiniMeDanny has done, I must admit I really like the guy. No, just kidding. He formulates his nostrums in a precarious latticework between the duplicitous and the indecent, but that's really beside the point. He dances to the tune of censorious boosterism. Even more remarkable, he has compiled an impressive list of grievances against me. Not only are all of these grievances completely fictitious, but MiniMeDanny's reports are a logical absurdity, a series of deductions from a premise that has been denied. Speaking of absurdities, for all MiniMeDanny's bombast about freedom, liberty, and tolerance, he still wants to set up dissident groups and individuals for conspiracy charges and then carry out searches and seizures on flimsy pretexts. Excuse me; that's not entirely correct. What I meant to say is that I'll tell you what we need to do about all the craziness MiniMeDanny is mongering. We need to do something good for others.
Think about it. Sure, MiniMeDanny talks the talk but does he walk the walk? We already have our answer; as a respected journalist put it, "I don't care a brass farthing about what MiniMeDanny thinks of me". She probably could have added that the next time MiniMeDanny decides to take rights away from individuals on the basis of prejudice, myth, irrational belief, inaccurate information, and outright falsehood, he should think to himself, cui bono? -- who benefits?
Maybe you, too, want to feed on the politics of resentment, alienation, frustration, anger, and fear, so let me warn you: MiniMeDanny keeps trying to deceive us into thinking that we should derive moral guidance from his glitzy, multi-culti, hip-hop, consumption-oriented prevarications. The purpose of this deception may be to paralyze needed efforts to reinforce what is best in people. Or maybe the purpose is to steal our birthrights. Oh what a tangled web MiniMeDanny weaves when first he practices to deceive.
What I call salacious marauders do nothing but eat, smell bad, and reproduce while contributing little or nothing productive to society in return for their upkeep. That, in itself, will condemn us to live with the worst types of huffy, disreputable euphuists there are in a lustrum or two. It should be intuitively obvious even to the most casual observer that it's quite easy for MiniMeDanny to declaim my proposals. But when is he going to provide an alternative proposal of his own? That happens to be a matter on which I do not care to venture either an opinion or a guess. I do, however, feel that I should state that if you want to hide something from MiniMeDanny, you just have to put it in a book. It is a grave injustice for MiniMeDanny , Jr. to interfere with my efforts to enlighten the mind of Man and improve him as a rational, moral, and social being. That is why, come what may, we must study the problem and recommend corrective action.
