DON'T LET THESE VICTORIES GO TO WASTE. PARTS 1-2. (FROM JUNE/JULY 2015).

DON'T LET THESE VICTORIES
GO TO WASTE.  PT 1.

The SUPREME COURT RULINGS DURING THIS PAST WEEK ARE EVIDENCE THAT LOGIC, REASON, MORALITY, AND JUSTICE ARE TERMS AND CONCEPTS THAT CAN COME TOGETHER TO ACCOMPLISH A COMMON GOAL.

THEY ARE NOT MUTUALLY EXCLUSIVE. THE DECISIONS TO AFFIRM THE LEGAL STANDING OF THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT,  ALONG WITH THE RULING THAT GOVERNMENT CANNOT DENY SAME-SEX COUPLES THE RIGHT TO LEGALLY MARRY, ARE PROOF OF THIS.

Of Course,  Some of those who Opposed Such JUDICIAL DECISIONS ARE CRYING FOUL, AND WILL DO ANYTHING IN THEIR POWER TO OPPOSE THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THESE DECISIONS INTO THE LEGAL SYSTEM AND PUBLIC POLICY.

HOWEVER, THEIR ARGUMENTS AND TACTICS HAVE NOT CHANGED. EQUALITY, RIGHTS, AND JUSTICE ARE TERMS MANY DELIBERATELY USE INCORRECTLY, TO SUPPORT AN IRRATIONAL POINT OF VIEW THAT DOES NOT STAND UP TO SCRUTINY.

BUT THEY ARE NOT THE REAL DANGER.  THE  SELF- CENTERED INDIVIDUAL WHO CARES NOTHING FOR OTHERS, ALONG WITH THE RELIGIOUS ZEALOT WHO BELIEVES GOD IS THEIR PERSONAL PIPELINE, ARE WITH US NOW AS IN THE PAST.  THEY CAN BE DEFEATED, AND WILL BECOME LESS AND LESS OF A FACTOR, AS LONG AS THOSE WHO ARE CELEBRATING TODAYS VICTORIES REMEMBER THE ETHICAL JUDGMENTS, AND MORAL ABSOLUTES THEY SUPPORTED TO ACHIEVE THESE GOALS.

DON'T LET THESE VICTORIES
GO TO WASTE.  PT 2.

So what Moral Absolutes am I Talking about?  I have Discussed These in Earlier Posts, and on other Pages, but it is Important to Remember Them.

-  Creating a National Health Care Plan that Benefits all Americans, by Making Medical Insurance Affordable and Accessible, is a MORAL DECISION THAT THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT BELIEVES IS A DUTY AND RESPONSIBILITY IT HAS TO THE CITIZENS OF THE U.S.  To Some it will be an Immediate Benefit, to Others a Safety Net Against Loss of Employment and a Reduction in Financial Status.  Many Americans may Never Need to Use it, but it REMAINS A SAFEGUARD TO PROTECT THE HEALTH AND WELL- BEING OF ALL.

SO WHY IS IT A MORAL ABSOLUTE?  THE "GOOD" THAT COMES FROM SUCH A LAW TRANSCENDS THE ECONOMIC POSITIVES OR NEGATIVES THAT MAY ISSUE FROM THE ESTABLISHMENT OF THIS PLAN.  IT IS NOT CONSIDERED TO BE AN ETHICAL QUESTION THAT SHOULD BE LEFT TO THE WHIMS OF THE MAJORITY, WHICH WOULD MAKE IT IMPRACTICAL TO ADMINISTER IN THE LONG RUN.

There are PRACTICAL CONSIDERATIONS THAT CAN LEAD TO ECONOMIC BENEFITS FOR THE NATIONAL ECONOMY, THAT WILL BE A PRODUCT OF THIS NEW LAW.  However, that is AN ANALYSIS THAT CANNOT BE DONE AT THE INITIAL STAGES OF IMPLEMENTING THE SYSTEM.

FOR NOW, IT IS SIMPLY THE "RIGHT" THING TO DO.
