No skin in the game

 

…from the quill of Antisthenes the Younger

Europe, in its suicidal wish, allows itself to be ruled by childless politicians. After experience with childless Hitler, who left extraordinary number of children fatherless, a normal person should view such politicians claiming that they are the best suited to lead everybody to happy future, with deepest suspicions.

There can be physiological and other genuine reasons for infertility and self-inflicted infertility, however, most of those politicians make no secret that their choice was for reasons of career and lifestyle. Some claim it is not selfishness, just philanthropy. Maybe that is what appeal to voters – selfishness proudly worn on a sleeve.

One could perhaps suspect that they were selected, groomed and installed by the Big Money for the purpose. De riguer ruthless dishonesty of everyday politicians is supplemented by the useful apres deluge mentality. Now even Washington Examiner noticed:

James McPherson, writing in the Washington Examiner, makes a remarkable observation: the leaders of Europe have no children. France’s Emmanuel Macron has none. Same with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, British prime minister Theresa May, Italian prime minister Paolo Gentilon, Holland’s Mark Rutte, Scotland’s Nicola Sturgeon, and Jean-Claude Juncker, president of the European Commission. Sweden’s prime minister Stefan Lofven has no biological children.

The prime minister of Luxembourg is also childless. I mention him not to cherry pick, but because it means that of the six founding members of what evolved into the European Union, five are now led by childless prime ministers or presidents…”

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.
