From Hilary
  • “One world government” organization that sounds like the usual mid-20th century “world peace”, “global village”, “human rights”, “world court”, The Day The Earth Stood Still crap: that’s all just code for “unelected liberal elites will rule your lives — presuming they let you live.”
  • Rights. “I’ve got an idea: Suppose you agree that he can’t actually have babies, not having a womb — which is nobody’s fault, not even the Romans’ — but that he can have the right to have babies.” “Good idea, Judith. We shall fight the oppressors for your right to have babies, brother... sister, sorry.”
  • More. Ask the following questions: Is there a right to do something impossible? Do you, for example, have the right to flap your arms and fly? Is there such a thing as the ability to “control your own destiny”? Maybe a good person to ask would be a cancer patient.
