The Zimmerman case clearly shows the totalitarian aspect of our society; yet many don’t see this
In the middle of a discussion at The Orthosphere about the pros and cons of the Zimmerman prosecution, commenter BGC writes:
As soon as one starts debating the micro-minutiae of media reports of each detail of incidents, political correctness has won. (Which, of course, it has.)I quibble with the phrase, “no-brainer.” It’s not a no-brainer at all; to the contrary, it takes brains to see the truth that the commenter is talking about. I also disagree with his statement that if you don’t see that truth now, you never will; for some people the truth will take a while to dawn. At the same time, his statement is correct that that truth has never been more manifest than in this case. The national persecution, and now the prosecution, of George Zimmerman is a further instance of what I have been saying repeatedly for the last two months, starting with the birth control mandate: that the reigning liberalism of our society has shifted into hyper-drive. Among other things, liberalism is now openly tyrannical.
