Spreading Compassion

Canadian Mind Products • mindprod.com


CMP (Canadian Mind Products)’s purpose is to stand up for the rights of plants and animals. Animals also includes cetacea, humans, gay people, atheists, war victims and invertebrates. CMP attempts to inculcate planetary consciousness — concern for the planet as a whole. A subgoal is to teach people to use computers effectively, particularly with the Java computer language.

The image in the top left corner is Spreading Compassion.

First we learned to stop punishing left-handed children. Then we learned to stop punishing people with more melanin in their skins than us. Then we learned to stop punishing young gay adults. Then we learned to stop punishing intersexed children.

It makes no sense to punish people for things they did not choose, and over which they have no control. Compassion demands we try to accommodate them as much as possible, so long as it does not harm others, even when we personally find them disgusting.

So for example, even though I find male-to-female cross-dressing incomprehensible and ridiculous, I insist on the right of other people to dress as they please. I think, over the coming centuries, this attitude of compassion will spread to cover people who now receive nothing but punishment including those with unusual sexual attractions or as I call them the outer philias.

Bogus Respectable Arguments

Christians are motivated by religious superstition, but they have learned that people laugh in their faces when they present arguments based on such superstitions. So instead, they make up bogus arguments they imagine might fly. So, for example, in a euthanasia debate, they will usually avoid telling you that they believe the god Jehovah owns you and you have no right to evade the suffering he imposes. Instead they make up highly improbable scenarios about a Hitler murdering crippled children as a result of terminally ill people being given the right to choose the time of their deaths.

How long until the voters are sufficiently educated about their self interest that politicians will brag about their plans to wrestle economic growth and greenhouse gas emissions to the ground?

Harper or Hitler?

In the 1930s, there was a politician who was elected democratically to office. Bit by bit, he muzzled various groups of people and gradually eliminated them and used government money to sell his toxic ideas. Bit by bit, he concentrated power in his office, and eliminated anyone whose job was oversight. He eventually became a dictator, and gave the world a rough time. You may remember him — Adolf Hitler.

In the 2000s there was a politician who was elected democratically to office. Bit by bit, he muzzled various groups of people (scientists, environmentalists, archivists, auditors…) and gradually eliminated them and used government money to sell his toxic ideas. Bit by bit, he concentrated power in his office, and eliminated anyone whose job was oversight. Oddly, despite the trend, like Germans, few Canadians are concerned about his dash to dismantling democracy. You may know him — Stephen Harper.
