Equality is a false god

When Islamist terrorists repurposed airliners as weapons of mass destruction and murdered almost 3,000 innocent men, women and children 16 years ago, President Bush declared a ‘War on Terror’. He destroyed the governments of two countries, demonstrating to leaders the world over what would happen to their own states if they helped in the massacre of Americans on American soil in a cataclysmic attack. To date, further Islamist violence has been restricted to more low-level assaults. People were still dying in America before Donald Trump became President, but the death tolls of the attacks were measured in the dozens, not the thousands.

Liberals sniffed at Bush’s choice of words, declaring that war could not be waged on such an abstract concept as ‘terror’. It is therefore somewhat hypocritical for the same people to state that they believe in ‘equality’, which is ‘equally’ abstract.

To believe in equality is presumably to oppose inequality. This would indicate that inequality in age should not be a bar to sexual intercourse. Indeed, forty years ago, the Paedophile Information Exchange was affiliated to the National Council for Civil Liberties (NCCL) for a number of years at the same time as some people who are Labour MPs were working there in senior positions. When the government was legislating against child pornography in the 1970s, the NCCL, now called Liberty, argued that the laws should be not as stringent as proposed.
