The Terri test, etc.
I sometimes think we are the land of lemmings. The only way to make a difference is to make people think they agree with you somehow. If this were not true, why are political campaigns becoming so expensive and important to who takes the top office? Why are there more and more people who claim "non-partisanship" and yet these the ones who are easiest to persuade--you just need to talk louder.
If there is one thing we need to learn from Terri Schiavo, it's that we can't take it for granted that America is decent and willing to be ruled by principle.
A wise friend of mine recently made a scathing comment about Michael Schiavo which serves well to illuminate just how disinterested American's seem to be:
He certainly wouldn't get my vote for sticking with her "through sickness and health" having gone out and found a "honey" while Terri is still alive.Strange how this man is given the benefit of the doubt when it is not his life, but his wife's life, that is at stake.
