Not the best of days

Posted: August 28, 2007 in Uncategorized

I can’t get this story out of my head. You’ve probably all heard it by now, the French pedophile who, before he got out of prison was prescribed Viagra by the doctor.

A five year old boy paid. He was raped and abused.

I can’t help but thinking that humanity is fucked. We’re sick. We destroy people, we destroy the environment and more to the point we seem to take immense pleasure in it. I think the best thing that could happen is that we be wiped off the face of the planet. Give some other species a chance. They sure as hell can’t do any worse than we did.

    But do you really believe that another species would do better?

    I totally agree. I worked for a long time (unpaid) on issues of sexual violence against women and children, including pornography and other media. If you have even a shred of optimism about the state of this world, it will be dashed by one look at some of this stuff. The hatred and death-loving nature of it can be overwhelming.

    Ticknart – they might not do any better, but I doubt they could do any worse, even given the couple of million years of evolution we’ve had (oops, sorry, that’s 6000, give or take according to creationists isn’t it?). At worse, the planet would have time to recuperate from us a bit.Rhea – I don’t know how anyone can do that type of work. I’d probably kill myself after a couple of weeks.

    Use of a slow rusty meat grinder (male appendages appropriately fed), then a tub full of Mercurochrome, is NOT good enough for this waste of oxygen. I’m hesitant to condemn the entire human race at this time — but check with me later.

    But, darling, then we’d never know how the ongoing Lindsay Lohan saga played out.That Viagra story is disgusting, but not surprising, which tells us a bit about the state of the world, n’est ce pas?

  6. Jazz says:

    Paul – Not mecurochrome, it hardly hurts at all. Iodine or alcohol on the other hand….Ian – Lindsey Lohan. There’s another reason to wipe out the human race right there. That that kid is considered so damn interesting says alot about our society. I have no faith in humanity anymore.

  7. CS says:

    Okay, I was going to comment on this post, but I was so distracted by this psychotic rant that it wiped it completely out of my mind!! Wonder what in the world prompted this word salad?

  8. Monica says:

    My sentiments exactly. I’ve been feeling more and more how stupid institutions and governments have become. “Let’s charge citizens an arm and a leg for medicine they need but give pedophiles in prison Viagra.”WHAT was the rationale for THAT???
