Of Barbarians, Breeders, and the Men of the New Old Order

Common Dreams – By Richard Eskow – May 4, 2022

The Democrats in Washington—somebody—should be demanding that the courts be taken back from the antidemocratic minority.

I cannot imagine what it is like to be a woman in the United States of America today. If I feel the blow of Samuel Alito’s draft opinion overturning Roe v Wade in the pit of my stomach—and I do—I can only try to imagine how it must feel to have one’s own body assaulted, occupied, colonized in this way.

Many people are repeating the line used by then-Sen. Kamala Harris in Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing for the Supreme Court. “Can you think of any laws that give the government the power to make decisions about the male body?” she asked. “I’m not thinking of any right now, Senator,” Kavanaugh replied.

But there is such a law, and it’s worth mentioning. The Selective Service requires all men of a certain age to register for military conscription. The draft hasn’t been used in many years, but it allows the government to take possession of men’s’ bodies and use them as instruments of war. My generation of men faced a high probability of being drafted and were ordered to submit to the requisite training and be sent off to Vietnam if we were chosen.

That was the old order. Men fought for the state, and when they returned home (if they returned home) they worked for wages to support the economic system. Women bred for the state, then raised the children that they produced. You played your role or you paid the price.

Now, they’re bringing the old order back. They call themselves “pro-life,” even as they clamor for war, for poverty, to deprive people of medical care and a livable involvement. You can’t be pro-life and call down death.

We are once again ruled by a priesthood that preaches the right to life from the moment of conception until the moment you’re born Muslim. Or dark-skinned. Or poor. Or female.

Why isn’t anything happening in the senate?

Why do the senators sit there without legislating?

Because the barbarians are coming today.

What laws can the senators make now?

Once the barbarians are here, they’ll do the legislating.

One of the most striking things about the Alito draft is how rage-filled it is. These judicial moles have watched, and waited, and bided their time, pretending to be sober jurists until their moment came around. Now, the rage is unleashed. Chief Justice Roberts may tone down the language, but the lurking creature has growled deep down in its throat.

When they were building the walls, how could I not have noticed!

But I never heard the builders, not a sound.

PS This is not pro-life, it’s pro-male & a way to further enslave Women with more power & control.
