“To complicate matters, today, we don’t know what a crime is any longer. Unfashionable opinions are now crimes.”
(Mary Dowling – Independent Sentinel) Tucker’s show tonight focused on our values and taboos being struck down and losing their moral force.
“American Society isn’t overtly religious, but it’s governed by taboos, and it always has been. What’s interesting is how fast our taboos are changing. This is not happening organically. What we’re allowed to dislike is being dictated to us from above, sometimes by force.”
Recently, “it was taboo in this country to attack people on the basis of their race. That was the main lesson of the Second World War. We were told again and again the one thing we learned from the Nazis is that it’s dangerous to reduce human beings to their genetic code. There is no master race. That made sense, but apparently, we no longer believe it. Punishing people based on their skin color is not only permitted in modern America; it is mandatory throughout business and government, and higher education, as long as the victims are white. At one time, that would have been unimaginable.”
