Caring generation

 

from the quill of Antisthenes the Younger

From The Daily Mail: A cyclist who knocked down a schoolgirl and left her for dead after jumping a red light at 30mph has been jailed for a year. Philip Benwell, 38, smashed into nine-year-old Leila Crofts as she stepped on to a pedestrian crossing. As she lay unconscious with a fractured skull, he climbed back on his bike and left the scene. She spent 14 days in intensive care, and although she is said to be recovering, she still suffers problems with her vision and memory.

 Judge Peter Johnson said Benwell had been ‘callous and selfish’ when he failed to stop. He told the cyclist: ‘You were cycling at high speed. It’s clear that the light must have been red for a few seconds before you went through that crossing. You went through that crossing so you did not have to brake and stop so you could use your momentum to get up the hill on the other side. Having struck this little girl you callously picked up your bike and carried on your journey leaving her lying unconscious in the road. This was an incredibly selfish criminal act.’

 But he sure cares about the planet.

About Antisthenes

A Greek philosopher, a pupil of Socrates. Led a revolt, with Diogenes, against the demands of the city-state and the sophistication of life. Accepted the interrelation of knowledge, virtue, and happiness; and sought the ideal condition for happiness in return to primitivism and self-sufficiency. Rejected all social distinctions as based on convention, scorned orthodox religion as a fabrication of lies, and studied early legends and animal life in order to arrive at a true understanding of natural law. The individual was free and self-sufficient when he was master of his passions, secure in his intelligence, impervious to social or religious demands, and satisfied with the poverty of a mendicant. Needless to say, a person who on the Fog of Chaos adopted the Athenian philosopher's name has nothing whatsoever in common with him.

    That’s what they are – hypocrites, every single one of them.

    The scum of society leans left and “progressive”.

    I wouldn’t expect anything else from them. Hypocrisy is built into them by their manipulators.

    Caring generation? Absolutely no surprise there.

    Now we have those bastards pretending they are noble born.
