"Million Dollar Baby" is a brilliant piece of propaganda that works because it is based on something deeply true: Human beings are afraid of physical debilitation; we are naturally repulsed by suffering we cannot cure. Science may tell us that after an adjustment period, quadriplegics are about as happy after their accident as they were before. No matter. The idea of living life trapped like that horrifies. Out of our horror, we dehumanize those who suffer. And then we celebrate murder as an act of love.
Maggie Gallagher, the prostitute columnist who took tax dollars better used for almost anything else, to promote marrige in 'BABY'S' MESSAGE DISCOUNTS VALUE OF HUMANITY
Tue Feb 15. So how much were you paid to tout the "value" of humanity, Magge? What makes you think you are in a position to even address it? Are you even aware that many, many people consider you, at best, disgraceful and ethically challenged? How must it feel to be considered as lowly in an industry that already has no integrity? The only merit your story has is that you probably know more about "fat, lazy, good-for-nothing cheats" than most. Your every word drips with hypocrisy. How unfortunate am I to have unwittingly stumbled upon your self-righteous diatribe? You should hang up your pen wherever it was you prostituted your credibility.
