Younger brother murdered by Israelis
A fundamental principle of justice is that you may only punish a wrongdoer for his crimes, not his family, his friends, his countrymen or
random people. The State of Israel rejects this principle. They embrace group punishment, ironically a
tactic favoured by Nazi Germany. They are so spiteful they primarily hurt children.

Euthanasia Should be Private
Why is there even a euthanasia debate? What would give someone the idea they had the
right to override someone else’s end-of-life decisions? What would give strangers
the notion they were in a better position to decide than the terminally ill patients?
The anti-euthanasia forces are fueled by religious fanaticism. They think they have a
god-given right to impose their religious superstitions on others. They imagine there
is merciful, perfect god, like a cosmic hotelier, who will be horrendously offended if

- Using narrower, smaller vehicles, including human-powered vehicles, and single
passenger vehicles so you can pack more of them onto the same roadway surface,
perhaps using three lanes where we can fit only one now.
- Use computer controlled vehicles so you can pack vehicles closer together, ensure
they co-operate, and drive at speed beyond safe human reaction time.
- Get people off the roads. Offer incentives to travel at off-peak times,
disincentives for unnecessary trips and disincentives for using a vehicle larger than
necessary. Offer incentives for telecommuting or commuting to an office outside the

Forcing Religious Beliefs on Others
The fact that some people are opposed on religious grounds mainly, well, that
doesn’t bother me as long as they’re not allowed to influence other people
by force or by whatever other means.
