First he was telling the cat lovers of New Zealand that all moggies deserve the death sentence, then he was telling us he actually believes human beings are the sole cause of changes that have been happening to Earth’s climate for four and a half billion years, and now he thinks that the over 65s are too senile to be given the vote and don’t deserve a state pension.
"When does an old person become unfit to vote? Why not look at it (age) as a way to lock the elderly out (of voting)?"
The whole article is so illogical, so unworthy of any thinking person or any human being for that matter, that it was hastily relegated from the Herald’s on-line edition. It also seems to have been missed by social media commentators who were too focussed on the fall of Colin Craig to worry about Mullah Morgan.
What the article shows is how increasingly deluded Morgan is becoming as he descends into the twilight zone of Green theology. This is a place that venerates youth, sets generations against each other and induces a culture of blame where the young can blame the elderly for all their woes. I’ve commented on this before when hard left Green Party List MP Denise Roche was allowed to preach her message of inter-generational hatred to Waiheke schoolchildren.
This philosophy might go down well with the Greens core voters, the young, rich, urban, bikers of Generation Zero, but it is a philosophy of hatred that will not find many takers in the population at large.
As American President Hubert Humphrey said, “
"...the moral test of government is how that government treats those who are in the dawn of life, the children; those who are in the twilight of life, the elderly; those who are in the shadows of life; the sick, the needy and the handicapped. "
The Herald describes Mullah Morgan as a philanthropist. Misanthropist would be a better description.
