THE WINNING STRATEGY FOR ‘THE CULTURE OF LIFE’ TO WIN THE ‘CULTURAL WAR’ WITH THE ‘CULTURE OF DEATH,’ TO SAVE HUMANITY FOREVER FROM ‘CREEPING TOTALITARIANISM’
Human Rights and Freedoms Forever! now has both a complete education and a complete strategy for ending all current threats to human life, religious freedom, and democracy itself!
GENERAL STRATEGY IN BRIEF: The British Abolitionists successfully and peacefully ended legal slavery (which was fundamentally incompatible with Democracy and the conflict had to be resolved for the stability of society) by EDUCATING FIRST THEMSELVES, THEN THE ELECTORATE OF VOTING CITIZENS FROM THE GRASSROOTS UP in the TRADITIONAL AND DEMOCRACY-GROUNDING PRINCIPLE of EQUAL HUMAN PRECIOUSNESS until there were sufficient numbers of EDUCATED voting citizens who believed that EVERY HUMAN WITHOUT EXCEPTION HAD EQUAL HUMAN RIGHTS to convince the politicians to end the entrenched and powerful, profitable SLAVE TRADE which DENIED HUMAN RIGHTS TO SOME HUMANS. In the same way, today’s TRADITIONAL believers in the SAME Democracy-Grounding Principle can become “New Abolitionists” and “Democracy Pledgers” WHO CAN END the current worldwide trends of “Creeping Totalitarianism” which is driven by now-popular “Pro-Choice-to-Kill-Humans” policies that are just as fundamentally incompatible with Democracy and de-stabilizing to society as legal slavery was, because they violate the SAME TRADITIONAL underlying principle that EVERY HUMAN WITHOUT EXCEPTION HAS EQUAL HUMAN RIGHTS that legal slavery did by DENYING HUMAN RIGHTS TO SOME HUMANS like legal slavery did and – worse than slavery – legally eradicating the Inherent Human Right to Live which is the foundation of all Democracy. To end the killing of humans and end “Creeping Totalitarianism at the same time, following the example of the original Abolitionists, “Pro-Human-Right-to-Live” New Abolitionists just need to make sure that enough voting citizens in every country (starting with themselves) become EDUCATED enough in that sufficient numbers of EDUCATED voters will no longer vote for UNEDUCATED politicians who are undermining the very fabric of Democracy in their IGNORANCE of the Foundational Principles of Human Rights and Democracy (Principles identified and described in Articles 1-5 of The Pledge of Allegiance to Democracy, which are essentially the SAME TRADITIONAL underlying principles held by the Abolitionists who ended slavery). Knowing and holding the now-clearly-identified historic and logical Foundational Principles of Human Rights and Democracy (which are backed up by the science of human life) should be a minimum qualification for politicians in any democracy which wants to remain a democracy long-term and not fall to current trends of “Creeping Totalitarianism,” and making sure there are enough EDUCATED VOTERS to convince the politicians to constitutionally enshrine the Foundational Principles of Human Rights and Democracy is the core of the “Winning Strategy” which was successfully used by the Abolitionists (who held these same principles like EVERY HUMAN WITHOUT EXCEPTION HAS EQUAL HUMAN RIGHTS) to end legal slavery.
Human Rights and Freedoms Forever! has developed and is developing a whole range of educational resources to be used in implementing the “Winning Strategy.” YOU can help further develop, publish, and spread these educational and promotional resources (and therefore help implement the “Winning Strategy for the ‘Culture of Life’ to WIN the ‘Cultural War’ with the ‘Culture of Death’ to Save Humanity Forever from ‘Creeping Totalitarianism’ ” by becoming a patron of Human Rights and Freedoms Forever! at
(the Following is a series of “First Draft” reflections which will unfold the “Winning Strategy” and I hope get people EXCITED about what we REALLY CAN DO to end all the current attacks on traditional Western values and on our Western democracies built on them – and it will NOT take decades like the original Abolitionists took to end the Human Rights violation of legal slavery)
This Early Draft remains on this website to ensure worldwide Internet access to the key ideas, facts and logic underlying LASTING DEMOCRACY AND HUMAN RIGHTS no matter how badly your country gets compromised by current worldwide trends of ‘Creeping Totalitarianism’ now or in the future.

In more detail:
After analyzing the closest historical precedents to today’s Human Rights violations which are driving the current trends of “Creeping Totalitarianism” in most Western democracies, Human Rights and Freedoms Forever! has developed a complete strategy outlined below and described in much more detail in The New Abolitionist Manifesto of Solidarity which supplements The Pledge of Allegiance to Democracy (and the Antidote to Any Degree of “Creeping Totalitarianism”).
This “winning strategy” is a PROVEN strategy, based on the educational strategy successfully used by the British Abolitionists to peacefully end the Slave Trade which denied Human Rights to some humans (Black humans). The original Abolitionists believed passionately in the SAME underlying TRADITIONAL principle of EQUAL HUMAN PRECIOUSNESS and fully EQUAL human rights for all humans which is the essence of the historic Foundational Principles of Human Rights and Democracy identified and described in the Pledge, which are shown to be the historical and logical ground of all modern Human Rights and Democratic Freedoms, foundational principles which are vitally necessary to restore to the West in order to end all the current trends of “Creeping Totalitarianism” undermining genuine and lasting Democracy and religious freedom in the West today.
Since Legal Slavery violated this core principle of EQUAL HUMAN PRECIOUSNESS by denying equal Human Rights to some humans (Black humans), it was fundamentally incompatible with Democracy; could not co-exist long-term with Democracy; and thus needed to be abolished for LASTING Democracy — as do the current similarly bigoted policies against young humans. Ignorant “Pro-Choice-to-Kill-Humans” bigotry against young humans is just as ignorant of the science of human life and just as vile and just as ultimately anti-democratic a bigotry as that against Black humans or Jewish humans. This deadly prejudice against young humans without any scientific justification and following the totalitarian Soviet and Nazi precedent of first de-criminalizing abortion-killing of young humans denies equal Human Rights to some humans JUST LIKE LEGAL SLAVERY DID, but even worse, the legal abortion of preborn humans literally cancels out any legally recognized Inherent Human Right to Live and thus reverses the entire historical process that logically gave us Human Rights and Democratic Freedoms in the first place (described in the Pledge and the Treatise).
In uneducated ignorance of the historical and logical Foundational Principles of Human Rights and Democracy, because these foundations were laid so long ago (in the 4th Century) no-one remembers, our Western democracies have unwittingly unleashed “Creeping Totalitarianism” into the West by ignorantly violating the simple maxim killing humans is wrong which the West first learned in the 4th Century when Human Rights were first legally recognized and protected by the 318 AD criminalization of abortion and infanticide BECAUSE the West then learned that human life was not CHEAP, to serve a greater State, but PRECIOUS, and the State was since the 4th-Century criminalization of abortion OBLIGATED to protect (and eventually serve) precious human lives. But no longer; the de-criminalization of the abortion-killing of young humans literally eradicates any legally recognized Inherent Human Right to Live and thus has reversed the 1630 years of the gradual but consistently logical development of modern Human Rights and Democratic Freedoms from the 318 AD criminalization of abortion to the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
De-Criminalized Abortion Severely Violates Any Historical Contextual Reading and Any Intelligent Reading of the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights
As discussed in Article 23 of The Pledge of Allegiance to Democracy, de-criminalized abortion is a betrayal of everything the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights intended to accomplish to protect humanity from totalitarianism for the long-term after the condemned Nazi atrocities, which included legal abortion mothers were encouraged to ask for (by the Nazis who had no respect for human life). Despite the unfortunate wording of The Universal Declaration‘s Article 1 which reads “All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights,” there is no reasonable nor legitimate way to interpret the whole text of the Universal Declaration as if it intended to exclude preborn humans from having any human rights so they could be legally killed by abortion, especially not in its 1948 historical context. In the same year of 1948 the Nazis were condemned at Nuremberg for legal abortion as “a crime against humanity” and the Declaration of Geneva (in response to the atrocities of Nazi doctors, which included legal abortions) included the doctor’s promise, “I will maintain the utmost respect for human life, from the time of conception; even under threat, I will not use my medical knowledge contrary to the laws of humanity.” The only reason the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights is not more explicit in declaring preborn humans have the same all-inclusive human rights as all other humans is because it did not need to be – in 1948 human life had been protected in the womb by law or custom since 318 AD and only the evil, oppressive and totalitarian Soviets and Nazis had ever de-criminalized the abortion-killing of young humans! And even the Soviets had re-criminalized abortion in 1936 and the evil Nazi regime had ended, the Nazis condemned for the “crime against humanity” of abortion in 1948, so preborn humans were not threatened in 1948, as they had not been since the 4th Century (during which time modern Human Rights and Freedoms had very gradually but logically developed from the starting point of the 318 AD criminalization of abortion BECAUSE ALL HUMAN LIFE IS PRECIOUS NOT CHEAP, the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights being the maturely-articulated end-point of a precisely 1630-year logical process that began when Human Rights were first legally recognized through the 318 AD criminalization of abortion).
In any case, implicitly the plain sense of the Universal Declaration is that it clearly intends to be all-inclusive and declare Human Rights for all humans, as it essentially does by stating human rights are for everyone “without distinction of any kind” because “recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of ALL members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world.”  IF the Declaration intended to exclude preborn humans from having the same human rights all other humans have just because they are human, THEN it would mean human rights are neither “inherent,” “equal,” nor “inalienable” after all, and the whole Declaration is meaningless. It would mean Human Rights are NOT for everyone “without distinction of any kind” after all, since a distinction would be made between preborn young humans who have no Human Rights and all other (older) humans who have Human Rights (a distinction of age-bigotry instead of race bigotry). It would absurdly mean preborn young humans are somehow NOT members of the “human family” that has “inalienable rights,” and therefore NONE OF US have “inherent” nor “inalienable” human rights after all, since ALL OF US started our human lives as preborn humans who could be legally killed by abortion!
So, when Human Rights were denied to some humans in Nazi Germany (preborn and born Jewish humans and preborn and born handicapped humans and other preborn humans the Nazis considered “undesirable” and encouraged the legal abortion of in their evil regime), the Germans were condemned for all these atrocities (including legal abortion) as “crimes against humanity,” and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was written to make sure Human Rights were never denied to some humans again.
The very definition of bigotry is denying equal human value and equal human rights to some humans, whether Black humans, Jewish humans, Indigenous humans, preborn young humans, or female humans, ALL of which groups of humans have had their equal human value and rights denied at different periods of history. This is WHY the Universal Declaration made it so clear that Human Rights were for “ALL members of the human family. . . without distinction of any kind,” not realizing that prejudice and bigotry were so ingrained that Western society would later go ahead and make new “distinctions” to exclude some humans from having Human Rights anyway. Young preborn humans are the new “Blacks” or “Jews” who by pure ignorant prejudice are denied Human Rights (even though they are scientifically, biologically just as human as we are – so much so every one of us used to be one of them when we were younger) just because they are in some way different than we are (smaller, younger, instead of having darker skin or whatever).
The “Winning Strategy”
All prejudice and bigotry that denies Human Rights to some humans is based in ignorance, including ignorance of the history of Human Rights and Freedoms and ignorance of the Biological Science of Human Life. Education is always the antidote to ignorance. Thus previously, when Human Rights were denied to some humans (Black humans) in legal slavery, the British Abolitionists first got themselves educated, and then patiently and gradually educated the electorate of voting citizens from the grassroots up until there were enough EDUCATED citizen voters to drive the politicians into doing WHAT WAS RIGHT FOR ALL HUMANITY despite the powerful lobby of those who profited greatly from denying Human Rights to some humans (Black humans) in the legal Slave Trade.
The same basic strategy is necessary to correct current Human Rights abuses that deny Human Rights to some humans (young, preborn humans) and to (at the same time) correct the current “Creeping Totalitarianism” undermining Democracy that naturally and logically comes with this deadly prejudice against young humans, because legal abortion literally eradicates any legally recognized Inherent Human Right to Live which is the foundation of Democracy. Like the original Abolitionists ended the legal slavery which denied Human Rights to some humans (Black humans) by educating the electorate of voting citizens from the grassroots up in fully understanding EQUAL HUMAN PRECIOUSNESS until there were enough EDUCATED citizens to convince their government to do the RIGHT THING FOR HUMANITY and end legal slavery despite the powerful lobby of the big-money Slave Trade that profited by denying Human Rights to some humans, so in the same way “Pro-Human-Right-To-Live” “New Abolitionists” need to end legal abortion which denies Human Rights to some humans (preborn young humans – and additionally denies the Inherent right to live of ALL humans, who could have been legally aborted) by likewise educating the electorate of voting citizens from the grassroots up in fully understanding EQUAL HUMAN PRECIOUSNESS until there are enough EDUCATED citizens to convince their government to do the RIGHT THING FOR HUMANITY and end legal abortion (and with it “Creeping Totalitarianism”) despite the powerful lobby of the big-money Abortion Industry (and those industries it supplies with human corpses and parts), which like the Slave Trade before it profits greatly from denying Human Rights to some humans.
“3-Pronged Practical Strategy” for Implementing the General “Winning Strategy”
So, to implement the “Winning Strategy,” ideally anyone who wants their Human Rights and Democratic Freedoms to weather the current “Creeping Totalitarianism” and last long-term for their children and grandchildren should READ (or listen to the audiobooks of) the whole Pledge of Allegiance to Democracy (and its supplemental New Abolitionist Manifesto of Solidarity, and/or the longer treatise they are based on, The Education Necessary to Preserve Democracy Now Under Attack), in order to know just where Human Rights and democratic freedoms historically and logically come from (and how current policies on human life violate Democracy’s very Foundations just as surely as did the Slave Trade), in order to become EDUCATED CITIZENS without which the “Winning Strategy” cannot work; TAKE the Pledge to stand up in Solidarity with other educated citizens for the Foundational Principles of Human Rights and Democracy (described in the Pledge) wherever they are ignored, in order to become democratically active citizens helping ensure democracy will last; and SPREAD the Pledge by sharing it with others (who share it with others) until there is the needed “critical mass” of EDUCATED CITIZENS in their country to drive the politicians into doing WHAT IS RIGHT FOR ALL HUMANITY despite the powerful lobby of those industries which today, like the Slave Trade, profit greatly from denying Human Rights to some humans; until there is the needed “critical mass” of EDUCATED CITIZENS in their country to ensure that the Foundational Principles of Human Rights and Democracy are constitutionally enshrined and taught to future generations, to end “Creeping Totalitarianism” so that human rights and freedoms FOR ALL HUMANS can last forever.
Doing this is the first level of a practical “3-pronged strategy” developed by Human Rights and Freedoms Forever! for implementing “The Winning Long-Term Strategy for the ‘Culture of Life’ to WIN the ‘Cultural War’ with the ‘Culture of Death,’ to Save Humanity Forever from ‘Creeping Totalitarianism.’ ” The “3 prongs” are:
1) people from the grassroots up reading, taking, and spreading the Pledge as “Democracy Pledgers” (those less bold with strangers at least spreading it to friends and family so the “education necessary to preserve democracy now under attack” spreads). Note that “taking the Pledge” just means reading it (owning its “I Pledge” statements as your own); “becoming a Democracy Pledger” just means spreading it to at least some others who can spread it to others (at least your like-minded friends and family), to ensure this education vital to lasting Democracy spreads;
2) people who want to do more becoming “Volunteer Democracy Leaders” in their city, spreading promotional materials and/or setting up “Lasting Democracy Study Nights,” gatherings of people reading and discussing the current draft (eventually the final published version) of the Pledge (with the Manifesto) and the longer treatise, for a firmly established and CONFIDENT EDUCATION to preserve human life, human rights and democratic freedoms
(starting by focussing on spreading this powerful education to those who are easy to convince that they should get this education, that is, those who already understand that all human life is precious and who already know something is wrong with the West and already want to do something about it even if they did not identify the problem as “Creeping Totalitarianism,” so there come to be more highly educated CONFIDENT CHAMPIONS of human life and freedom; then focussing on moving on to educating those who already hold the traditional Western values democracy is built on and convincing those who deny the problem of “Creeping Totalitarianism” is as bad as it is (like the good 1930s Germans who denied mounting evidence of Nazi totalitarianism and atrocities) to accept and no longer deny the problem; similarly moving on to convincing those who despair of a solution after decades of government ignoring their traditional voice (many of whom actually expect to lose all religious freedom eventually but just hope it happens later not sooner) to understand that we now have a “winning strategy” that the forces of “Creeping Totalitarianism” cannot ignore anymore (and which they cannot even try to refute without looking uneducated or evil because it is built on undisputed facts and sound logic), convincing them to no longer despair and do nothing but to PARTICIPATE in implementing the “winning long-term strategy;” and having thus built up the numbers of EDUCATED and active “Democracy Pledgers,” finally focussing on engaging the whole culture in grappling with the Pledge of Allegiance to Democracy (Democracy 101) and its challenge to the status quo of “Creeping Totalitarianism”)
3) Setting up educational Celebrate Human Life! Centers in every city in every country, with educational displays of the cutting-edge biological and medical science of human life at all stages and so on as described in detail at this link. Such centers will do much to inform and educate the electorate of voting citizens in the hard science they need to know to not be fooled by the shallow arguments of “Pro-Choice-to-Kill-Humans” “totalitarian creeps.”
These are 3 practical ways to implement the “Winning Strategy.” More practical ways of implementing the “Winning Strategy” (such as what to do when no political parties are fielding “Pro-Human-Right-to-Live” or “Pro-Life” candidates who actually believe in the Foundational Principles of Human Rights and Democracy) are discussed in detail in The New Abolitionist Manifesto of Solidarity.
Because Legal Abortion Threatens Not Only Legally Devalued Humans (Like Legal Slavery Did), But Also Threatens Democracy Itself Via “Creeping Totalitarianism,” WE CAN END LEGAL ABORTION USING THE ABOLITIONIST STRATEGY MUCH MORE QUICKLY Than the Abolitionists ended Legal Slavery Because Many More People are Negatively Affected (ultimately) by Legal Abortion
It took decades of the original British Abolitionists being dedicated to gradually educating the electorate from the grassroots up in the traditional value of EQUAL HUMAN PRECIOUSNESS, which first entered the general Western consciousness in the 4th Century (through Christianity) and was first legally acknowledged by the 318 AD criminalization of abortion (five years after Christianity was legalized), before the Abolitionists (who were also dedicated Christians) were successful in abolishing legal slavery (and thereby resolved in favor of Democracy the fundamental incompatibility of legal slavery with Democracy).
Although dedicated “Pro-Human-Right-to-Live” or “Pro-Life” advocates should understand themselves to be “New Abolitionists” fighting for the same EQUAL HUMAN PRECIOUSNESS (and Inherent Human Right to Live, the ground of Democracy) “for the long haul,” even if it takes decades like it took the original Abolitionists, it will probably NOT take decades for legal abortion to be abolished according this “New Abolitionist” strategy based on the original Abolitionist strategy of educating the electorate from the grassroots up until sufficient numbers of Human-Rights-educated voters convince the politicians to end the great Human Rights violation of the day (legal slavery or legal abortion).
This is simply because, much worse than legal slavery which only denied Human Rights to some humans, legal abortion destroys the legally recognized Inherent Human Right to Live of ALL humans, eradicating the Foundational Principles of Human Rights and Democracy themselves, so that Democracy itself is getting increasingly compromised and unstable under the weight of the widespread uneducated ignorance of where Democracy comes from (and what it needs to last) that is driving current trends of “Creeping Totalitarianism.” It took so many decades to educate enough motivated voters to end slavery because even the people who became motivated to help the (non-voting) Black humans whose humanity had been “legally devalued” so they could be legally enslaved were not personally threatened by legal slavery and it took a long time for them to motivate others (who also were not personally threatened by slavery and rarely saw evidence of its worst abuses of humanity) to use their votes to join the cause.
But as the “Creeping Totalitarianism” unleashed decades ago by legalized abortion (which follows the precedent of the totalitarian Soviets and Nazis who first de-criminalized abortion) logically progresses to more and more compromises of genuine democratic freedoms of more and more citizens, creating more and more presently uncomfortable citizens who become aware of the threat to their own freedoms (like freedoms of conscience and religion) that (they know from reading the Pledge of Allegiance to Democracy etc.) has its ultimate source in legal abortion decades ago taking away their own legally recognized Inherent Human Right to Live (like in all totalitarian States), these voting citizens will become motivated to take up the “Pro-Human-Right-to-Live” cause just because it is the foundation of democracy itself. They will come to the cause not only for the sake of legally-devalued preborn young humans being killed (like legally-devalued Jewish and Black humans before them – Blacks died in the tens of thousands shackled together in their own waste on slave ships before even getting the chance to be slaves). They now will come in greater numbers more quickly to the cause than they did to free the slaves because they are finally realizing that the whole anti-traditional ‘Culture of Death’ which started with de-criminalizing human-killing abortions (and denying the simple maxim that killing humans is wrong) is now affecting their own human freedom, as more and more citizens in more and more professions (starting with the medical profession but now branching out to the educational and legal professions and government employees etc in many jurisdictions), are uncomfortably bullied into silence at work about their traditional, democracy-grounding values by informal and formal policies threatening their jobs or funding, etc. if they are too vocal to speak democracy’s traditional historical and logical foundations.
Even parents where this author lives are having their freedom to raise their own children in traditional (democracy-grounding) values taken away, through totalitarian-style State-set education in radically anti-traditional values with no history in the culture, and recently proposed legislation has serious potential, if passed and fully implemented, to make parents further live in fear of being reported to authorities and having their children taken away for traditional childrearing which the “Pro-Choice-to-Kill-Humans” radically anti-traditional government no longer considers “in the best interests of the child.” With so many citizens facing increasing discomfort as their democratic freedoms continue to degrade along with the traditional Western values (including equal human preciousness and the Inherent Human Right to Live) they were built on, as more and more become consciously aware (through the works of Human Rights and Freedoms Forever!, especially the Pledge of Allegiance to Democracy / Democracy 101) that their long-term Democratic Freedoms depend on their legally recognized Inherent Human Right to Live as the central aspect of the Foundational Human Rights and Democracy, more and more will be motivated to use their votes (while they still have them) to end BOTH legal abortion AND the “Creeping Totalitarianism” it unleashed at the same time, finally standing up together in Solidarity to use their votes in large blocs to finally hold their uneducated and (witting or unwitting) “totalitarian creep” politicians democratically accountable to the Foundational Principles of Human Rights and Democracy (like they did not do in 1930s Germany, when they democratically elected a government which manifestly did not believe in the Foundational Principles of Human Rights and Democracy that every human is EQUAL and PRECIOUS, and they predictably paid the same price we are now in the process of paying for doing the same thing – they lost their democracy to an increasingly totalitarian government they did not hold accountable to the “Pro-Life” Foundational Principles of Human Rights and Democracy).
America Starting to Turn the Tide? But Still in Danger
Hilary, Trump and Lincoln: The Human Rights & Freedoms Issues Which Determined the Results of the 2016 US Election, and What Trump’s Detractors Are Unwittingly Doing to Help Make Sure History Associates Trump with Lincoln
As the logically-ensuing rotten fruit of decades without a legally recognized Inherent Human Right to Live (since abortion was de-criminalized) become more and more evident with more and more compromises of genuine democratic freedoms, especially of democratic freedoms to practice the traditional Western values democracy was built on, the tide away from decades of increasingly anti-democratic “Pro-Choice” (“Pro-Choice-to-Kill-Humans”) “Creeping Totalitarianism” and back towards the traditional, “Pro-Life” (“Pro-Human-Right-to-Live”) Foundational Principles of Human Rights and Democracy is already starting to happen, and it just needs the solid Human Rights education from First Principles provided in the educational materials produced by Human Rights and Freedoms Forever! to gain maximum momentum. But even without this education helping them make the explicit connection that PRO-LIFE = PRO-DEMOCRACY (and throughout history PRO-CHOICE = PRO-TOTALITARIANISM) which is proven just by the “Top 6 Facts About Human Rights History Few Know” (never mind the rest of the wealth of scientific and historical facts in Human Rights and Freedoms Forever!’s Democracy 101 Pledge and treatise), still millions of extremely uncomfortable American voters in the recent 2016 election (even if they had serious reservations about the flaws of unorthodox candidate Donald Trump) understood implicitly that the aggressively Pro-Choice Hilary Clinton was the greatest threat to their ongoing democratic freedom of religion, specifically because she is aggressively “Pro-Choice-to-Kill-Humans.” In fact, Presidential hopeful Hilary Clinton had explicitly stated as much herself on April 23, 2015, when she told a crowd that to ensure Pro-Choice access to abortion (that kills human lives) the government will have to enforce changes in deeply held religious beliefs (so that humans can be killed without objection): Hilary’s words: “[Pro-Choice, Abortion] Laws have to be backed up with resources, and political will,” she said. “[Pro-Life] Deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs, and structural biases have to be changed.” So just like the “Pro-Choice” governments of the ancient world which allowed parents to choose to raise or kill their children by abortion also were totalitarian (telling citizens what they may or may not believe), Hilary Clinton clearly indicated to us that modern “Pro-Choice” governments that likewise insist that parents have the right to choose to raise or kill their children by abortion also will be totalitarian and will likewise tell citizens what they may or may not believe. The pure ignorance of Democracy’s foundations of Hilary Clinton – and far too many “Pro-Choice” advocates like her all over the world – would have supposedly democratic governments manipulate and enforce changes to the (Christian) religiously-grounded Pro-Life “bias” that treats ALL human life without exception as PRECIOUS, even though it is precisely this “bias” in favour of human life wherever it exists which logically undergirds the entire historical development of modern human rights and modern democracy proceeding logically from the starting point of the 318 AD criminalization of abortion because human life is precious not cheap. Thus “Pro-Choice” abortion is fundamentally anti-democratic and anti-human-life and will naturally undermine democracies in a logical progression because by killing preborn humans it first of all violates the historic “Pro-Life” (“Pro-Human-Right-to-Live”) principle of the immense and equal value of every human life without exception (including the preborn, protected since 318 AD) which historically and logically undergirds all our democracies, and further, in order to ensure the Pro-Choice “abortion access” which kills human lives continues unimpeded, Pro-Choice forces MUST also violate the rights and freedoms of all who will stand up in defense of the humans being killed, which is exactly why doctors and medical professionals in many jurisdictions are being bullied and threatened into giving up their democratic freedoms and are being made scared to speak freely their conscience in our compromised democracies (such as where I live where doctors can now lose their licences to be doctors if they object to killing humans by abortion or euthanasia), all in order to keep the fundamentally anti-democratic Pro-Choice abortion-killing of humans unimpeded by the pesky morals of those who believe in the Foundational Principles of Human Rights and Democracy. Anything that is as anti-human-life as Pro-Choice abortion must be essentially anti-democratic, since democracy specifically depends on human lives being of equal value, and precious. Pro-Choice philosophy is fundamentally anti-human and anti-democratic and as it matures inexorably leads to the dissolution of Democracy because by internal necessity Pro-Choice abortion must crush the rights and freedoms of those who object to the killing of humans because they believe all human life is EQUALLY PRECIOUS (which principle is the historic and logical root of Democracy!).
As the Founder and Director of the non-partisan and international Human Rights and Freedoms Forever!, I wrote nothing against Hilary Clinton before the American election but instead I posted an article applicable to any nation entitled Non-Partisan Guidelines for Voting so that Human Rights and Democratic Freedoms Last Forever, laying out the Foundational Principles of Human Rights and Democracy and what the historical results have been when voters do not hold their politicians accountable to these principles necessary for lasting democracy. I similarly have little interest in commenting one way or another on the new American President’s unorthodox character for a politician or on his policies in general, but only in how he affects Human Rights and Freedoms lasting long-term. I do intend to write a more thorough analysis later but I can say the reason all the pollsters were so massively confused about how they all could have been so wrong about Donald Trump’s chances when he won a landslide election victory is because the decisive factor none of the pollsters considered was traditional believers in the traditional Western values Democracy was built on, desperately afraid they would lose even more of their religious freedom under Hilary Clinton than they had already suffered under Barack Obama (who had undemocratically forced religious schools to have abortion services offered in their health plans and so on), voting for Donald Trump even if they despised him for his flaws, because he was the first candidate in decades to actually court the “traditional Western values” vote (especially of Christians, who introduced the now-abandoned Foundational Principles of Human Rights and Democracy into the West in the 4th Century), by making promises that if kept would limit the abortion-killing of humans and protect their increasingly threatened constitutional rights to religious freedom.
After decades of simply having no candidate to vote for who took their traditional (democracy-grounding) values seriously enough to even try to seriously challenge legal abortion (which has been progressively undermining genuine democracy and religious freedom all those decades), these millions of American believers in traditional Western values (the majority of them Christians), who normally are either too jaded to vote or vote on lesser issues because no party will touch the important ones, were desperate for a candidate to champion their continued religious freedom and genuine democracy (which is historically and logically built on “Pro-Life” / “Pro-Human-Right-to-Live” principles) in America, against the great threat to religious freedom posed by Hilary Clinton with her aggressive “Pro-Choice-to-Kill-Humans” agenda and her clearly-stated totalitarian intention to “change” “deep seated . . . religious beliefs” that did not agree with her stance. Trump upset all the pollsters and mainstream media’s predictions against him because he tapped into the current they had ignored of millions of traditionally-believing Americans afraid for their religious freedom to value and protect human life (which is the foundation of democracy itself). Without commenting on President Trump’s other policies which are not my main concern, I can say as the Founder and Director of Human Rights and Freedoms Forever! which seeks to preserve Democracy worldwide for the long term, that I have 100 times less work to do because Hilary Clinton is not the U.S. President (still a vast amount of work to do where I live, however, and America may only have a 4-year respite from actively advancing “Creeping Totalitarianism” if “the education necessary to preserve democracy now under attack” promoted by Human Rights and Freedoms Forever! does not spread fast enough in America by their next election).
Americans now must realize with trepidation how close they came to electing a leader so blatantly against the Foundational Principles of Human Rights and Democracy and with such brazenly totalitarian intentions (even if, like so many, she was merely ignorant of democracy’s foundations, and not actually evil). It is a sign of an electorate of voting citizens so woefully uneducated in and out of touch with the Foundational Principles of Human Rights and Democracy, a democracy in advanced decay, one well on the way to becoming a “DINO” (“Democracy In Name Only), that someone with such obviously totalitarian inclinations, someone so against democratic government “of the people, by the people, for the people” that she publicly indicated her intentions to use “political will” to “change” the people’s “deep-seated . . . religious beliefs” specifically in order to destroy the “Pro-Human-Right-to-Live” or “Pro-Life” Foundational Principles of Human Rights and Democracy with her aggressive “Pro-Choice-to-Kill-Humans” policies, still came as close as she did to becoming the so-called “leader of the free world.” (Remember the Germans in the 1930s, in their similar ignorance of the Foundational Principles of Human Rights and Democracy, similarly elected a President – Hitler – who manifestly did not believe in democracy’s foundations in the EQUAL HUMAN RIGHTS OF ALL HUMANS). The fact that so many Americans are not relieved at such a “close call” with ACCELERATED “Creeping Totalitarianism” but are lamenting her loss and planning how to gain power to continue to accelerate “Pro-Choice-to-Kill-Humans” “Creeping Totalitarianism” next time reveals that America is still very much in danger (and needs to see the spread of Democracy 101 & The Pledge of Allegiance to Democracy turning more of the majority still “in the middle” on human life issues into educated “Democracy Pledgers” so there are less uneducated voters (if unwittingly) acting like “totalitarian creeps”). Still, thankfully for lasting democracy, in 2016 many of the American people, scared of losing their religious freedom, sent a powerful message by tipping the scales against all predictions of pollsters and giving a landslide victory to the one politician in decades, unorthodox and flawed as he was, who was actually willing to do the right thing where it matters most – protect the Inherent Human Right to Live which is the historical and logical foundation of Democracy. His opponent Hilary Clinton, whatever her genuine strengths (and more orthodox political poise), got the most important thing about governing humans – the value of human life – absolutely wrong.
Human Rights and Freedoms Forever! is all about having an educated “broad perspective” on Western history in order to understand the trends in thought and action that underlie our Human Rights and Freedoms and what takes them away, so that we can actively maintain the foundations of our rights and freedoms and guard against “Creeping Totalitarianism” for the long-term. Knowing this “education necessary to preserve democracy now under attack,” I suggest from my broad historical perspective that IF President Trump fulfills all his “Pro-Human-Right-to-Live” / “Pro-Life” promises and works to restore the traditional Western values Democracy is built on (things which have been long rejected by many of his opponents), history will overlook all his flaws and unorthodox manner which his opponents emphasize and even any policy mistakes he makes on lesser issues, and will look back on him as the President who saved American democracy (and truly “made America great again” as he campaigned) by restoring to America the Foundational Principles of Human Rights and Democracy in the EQUAL PRECIOUSNESS of EVERY HUMAN (not just some humans), the lack of which formerly drove legal slavery and has been driving both legal abortion and its logically ensuing “Creeping Totalitarianism” for decades now. In fact, IF President Donald Trump runs his administration like this, history will have to compare him with America’s greatest President, Abraham Lincoln, who did so much to ensure the exact same principle of EQUAL Human Rights for ALL humans was guiding America, ending legal slavery which violates Human Rights for the same reasons as legal abortion does.
President Trump’s detractors have already done much towards making sure history associates Trump together with Lincoln as the “American Presidents who were champions of Human Rights for All Humans” with their immature, undemocratic, and even criminal and violent behavior in protest of their new “Pro-Life” President who is thus working towards Human Rights for All Humans, which recalls how the slave-owning American South who ALSO (like “Pro-Choicers”) denied Human Rights to some humans effectively said “Abolitionist Lincoln who believes in Human Rights for All Humans is NOT MY PRESIDENT” and they took this so far as to try to secede from the United States, rather than accept Abolitionist President Lincoln who believed (like Pro-Life President Trump) in Human Rights for All Humans.
Those who have rioted in the streets in protest that the fairly and democratically-elected Trump is “not my President;” those who refused to allow Pro-Life women to the “women’s march” following Trump’s inauguration; those who are now calling to impeach Trump are primarily those who wanted the aggressively “Pro-Choice-to-Kill-Humans” Hilary Clinton, and/or the officially “Pro-Choice-to-Kill-Humans” Democratic Party (which for this very reason is now actually “anti-democratic”) to win the US election instead of the “Pro-Life” / “Pro-Human-Right-to-Live” Trump who supports Human Rights for All Humans just like President Abraham Lincoln did. This means those calling to impeach Trump have put themselves in the same position as those Americans even in the North who resisted Abraham Lincoln working to end the biggest Human Rights abuse of his day and free the slaves. They should be ashamed of themselves. The biggest, saddest irony is the “impeach Trump” movement includes some otherwise educated and intelligent people so out of touch with the Foundational Principles of Human Rights and Democracy that they actually think they stand for “democracy,” “civil liberties,” and “equal rights” – but they are too ignorantly bigoted to realize they are only standing for “equal rights and civil liberties” for those humans they choose to accept as equally valuable humans (just like slave-owners upheld “equal rights and liberties” too, but only for those (White) humans they chose to accept as equally valuable humans). Massively bigoted, like every other massive bigot “impeach Trump” Pro-Choicers deny equal human rights to some humans – and so they look ridiculous when they claim they are promoting “civil liberties” and “equal rights” and “democracy” by wanting to impeach Trump – the first US President with the moral boldness of Lincoln to stand up against abortion, the biggest Human Rights violation of our day! (Those calling to “impeach Trump” who are not Pro-Choice – I suspect a small number – though not bigoted in the same way still demonstrate themselves very ignorant of the Foundational Principles of Human Rights and Democracy since they do not seem to realize that though far from a perfect candidate, the only other candidate by her own account would have accelerated “Pro-Choice-to-Kill-Humans” “Creeping Totalitarianism” and so it is literally working against lasting democracy to try to reverse that election result which history may well look back upon as the one that saved American democracy by making President someone who (whatever his flaws) like Lincoln was bold enough to stand up for Human Rights for ALL Humans, the lack of which logically undermines democratic freedoms for ALL humans, whether by legal enslavement of humans or legal abortion-killing of humans.)
Make no mistake: Whatever else is claimed, the single biggest underlying reason certain people want to impeach Trump before he has even had a chance to govern (with Internet calls to impeach him the day he took office, meaning it has nothing to do with anything he has actually done in his infant Presidency) is the same single biggest reason the Southern States wanted to secede from the US from the very moment Abraham Lincoln took office: in both cases those who deny equal Human Rights for all Humans because they profit or gain some advantage or convenience from not treating all humans equally (Black humans or preborn humans) did not want to be under a President who would not allow their selfish immorality to continue, a President who would instead insist on Human Rights for All Humans for the good of long-term democracy (which cannot last wherever humans are not treated equally). In both cases, with Lincoln and Trump, they essentially said that anyone who supports Human Rights for All Humans so genuine Democracy can flourish is “NOT MY PRESIDENT.” One realizes all the “trumped up” arguments for impeaching Trump “to protect democracy” are the biggest joke in the world as soon as one realizes that for the most part the people who are calling for it preferred Hilary Clinton to be President even though she was aggressively “Pro-Choice-t0-Kill-Humans” and manifestly against the “Pro-Human-Right-to-Live” Foundational Principles of Human Rights and Democracy and she was even clear (as in her April 23, 2015 speech) about the fact that she intended to use totalitarian-style “political will” to “change religious beliefs” which are against her anti-human-life abortion policies which like slavery policies do not treat all humans equally.
President Trump, despite his flaws and his unorthodox political style, like Abraham Lincoln can go down in history as a champion of Human Rights for All Humans IF he continues to boldly work to end the abortion-killing of humans. Those calling to impeach Trump will go down in history’s annals of shame with those who resisted Lincoln’s freeing the slaves for the same reason Trump is working to re-criminalize abortion: fully equal Human Rights are for All Humans (or else they are meaningless and Democracy which depends on them cannot last long-term).
In fact, IF President Donald Trump is bold enough, he can guarantee that history will always associate him with President Abraham Lincoln, who used an executive order (the Emancipation Proclamation), followed up with a constitutional amendment proposed by his government (the 13th Amendment), to end legal slavery which denied Human Rights to all humans. All President Trump has to do to emulate Lincoln in a way that will be highlighted in history is to clearly and unequivocally proclaim in some way The Foundational Principles of Human Rights and Democracy (which are clearly identified from history and logic in PLEDGE PART I (Articles 1-5) of Democracy 101 & The Pledge of Allegiance to Democracy) in some kind of executive order or action which is later ratified in a constitutional amendment that guarantees that founding American values like “all men are created equal” (so Human Rights are for ALL humans) are never more compromised like they were with the legal slavery of Black humans and even worse with the legal abortion-killing of preborn humans (just like each one of us when we were their age), which denies the Inherent Human Right to Live of each one of us, which is what (as the Pledge of Allegiance to Democracy demonstrates) all Human Rights and Democratic Freedoms were historically and logically built upon. In doing so, President Trump will merely be emulating President Lincoln by clearly re-affirming the HUMAN EQUALITY which is a cornerstone American value. IF President Trump is bold enough to make some kind of executive order or action like Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation, which enshrines or begins the process of enshrining (in a constitutional amendment) Human Rights for All Humans including the Inherent Human Right to Live, confirming that killing humans is wrong (period. No exceptions for some humans like Black humans or preborn humans), all he will be doing is following in the footsteps and imitating the example of Abraham Lincoln, who did so much for Human Rights in America and worldwide (and made both a much better place) by championing this exact same principle of Human Rights for All Humans when he ended slavery through the bold Emancipation Proclamation starting the process (his government confirming it later with the 13th Amendment). And what are President Trump’s opponents going to be able to say against any of this without looking like fools and bigots who are against Human Rights for All Humans and thus against Democracy? What are they going to say against such an action? “No, we don’t agree that Human Rights are for all humans. We deny some humans (preborn humans) have human rights. We deny killing humans is wrong.” In saying this they put themselves in the category of slave-owners and Nazis who deny Human Rights to some humans! Surely they will try to paint Trump as a tyrant if he emulates Lincoln in this way. So did the slavery-sympathizers in the American North who also denied Human Rights to some humans try to paint Lincoln. Anyone can see that if humans do not even have a human right to live or to live free, they cannot possibly have a human right to a democratic say or vote. So anyone who actively opposes such an action and such a constitutional amendment boldly re-affirming Human Rights for All Humans (which does not even have to name the abortion-killing of humans specifically in order for it to be obvious abortion is unconstitutional) simply declare themselves to be ignorant and uneducated, anti-human age-bigots and “totalitarian creeps” who support the continued dissolution of genuine Democracy by continuing to deny Democracy’s foundations in the EQUAL HUMAN PRECIOUSNESS and Inherent Human Right to Live which makes it obvious that killing humans is wrong.
Americans: Send President Trump Democracy 101 & The Pledge of Allegiance to Democracy !
I encourage Americans to repeatedly send President Trump encouragement to boldly follow in Lincoln’s footsteps and through some bold executive action (followed up by constitutional amendment) unequivocally re-affirm the founding American principle of human equality (or Human Rights for ALL Humans) as the equal Inherent Human Right to Live because of equal human preciousness which is historically and logically the underlying foundation of Democracy, which of course precludes the enslavement or killing of humans (except to protect other precious humans, as in law enforcement – see Article 6 of The Pledge of Allegiance to Democracy). I encourage Americans to repeatedly send President Trump copies of and weblinks to Democracy 101 & The Pledge of Allegiance to Democracy – What Every World Citizen Needs to Know to Make Sure Human Rights, Religious Freedom, and Democracy Itself Survive “Creeping Totalitarianism” and Last Forever on Their Firm Historical, Scientific, and Logical Foundations), so that he has all the information and education he needs to know he can justify taking such bold moves on behalf of Human Rights for ALL humans (following in the footsteps of Lincoln who did the same thing), because the great weight of history, science, and logic justifies his taking such action to ensure Human Rights are respected without exception worldwide, and thus making the whole world a better place (not just America), as the whole world benefitted from the great President Lincoln taking a similar bold stance to ensure every human under his jurisdiction (which influences the rest of the world) had LEGALLY RECOGNIZED EQUAL Human Rights and Freedoms.
Human Life Issues are NON-PARTISAN: All Political Parties of “Left” and “Right” at Least Implicitly Assumed the Traditional Foundational Principles of Human Rights and Democracy in Equal Human Preciousness When All Our Modern Democracies Were Formed – But Some Parties Have Strayed from Their Democratic (Human-Protecting) Roots and Adopted Totalitarian (Human-Killing) Policies and Need to Get Back to Their Own Party Roots if They Want Voters Educated in Democracy’s Foundations (Who Will be Continually Increasing in Number) to Vote for Them
In America, the traditional believers in Democracy’s “Pro-Life” foundations, by tipping the balance to give Trump his completely unexpected landslide, have shown their strength of numbers, and shown that they will back a candidate – however personally flawed or imperfect – who is willing to stand for the (“Pro-Human-Right-to-Live” or “Pro-Life”) traditional western values all human rights and democracy were founded on, and cannot last without. America’s left , if they really want to get in power next time, if they want to NEUTRALIZE the surprise advantage of Trump, to level the playing field they, like Trump, have to stand for the traditional, Western belief in the supreme and EQUAL preciousness of every human man life without exception – and by doing so prove that they too now believe in the Foundational Principles of Human Rights and Democracy, especially the EQUAL HUMAN PRECIOUSNESS, which BOTH “left” and “right” parties implicitly assumed at the formation of their great democracy (they may have some serious soul-searching to do to get back to their party’s roots, depending on just how far they have strayed from Democracy’s foundations). This is very important to understand: “Left vs Right” is NOT “Pro-Choice vs. Pro-Life.” The political Left and Right ALL assumed the basic “all humans are equal ” Pro-life Position (introduced into the West in the 4th Century) when the founding “left” and “right” parties of all modern democracies were formed.
Although in the USA and Canada the polarization on life issues just happens to have pitted “left” against “right,” the real division here worldwide is what soon will be known as “Democracy Pledgers” versus “totalitarian creeps” – that is, those ultimately oriented towards democracy from its Human Rights foundations versus those ultimately oriented towards totalitarianism because they deny democracy’s Human Rights for all humans foundation and keep trying to find slick new justifications to get out of admitting killing humans is wrong (Period). That is, the real substantial difference dividing Americans, Canadians, or those of any other nationality over life issues is the distinction between those HAVING versus those LACKING a solid Human Rights education in Democracy’s historical, scientific, and logical foundations such as that which Human Rights and Freedoms Forever! provides. This can also be simply described as the “Human Rights for all humans” division, which is exactly the same as the previous Human Rights for all humans division over legal slavery: There are those who believe that Human Rights are for all humans (Black, Jewish, preborn “without distinction of any kind,” as it says in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights), and those who do NOT believe in Human Rights for all humans. And any country that cannot agree on such a very basic and foundational matter as whether or not humans are precious (and should be consistently treated as such) cannot possibly be stable for the long term; such radical polar opposites about human life itself will tear any society apart. It was even pointed out at the time of America’s founding that legal slavery was inconsistent with “all men are created equal” and this fundamental inconsistency was inherently politically destabilizing and screamed for resolution until eventually resolved by the Civil War, the Americans having failed to resolve the fundamental incompatibility of slavery with democracy peacefully as they did in the British Empire. Since legal abortion is just as fundamentally incompatible with Democracy as legal slavery was, for exactly the same reason – it denies human rights to some humans – this issue will also be inherently destabilizing to democracies and will scream for resolution until a stable viewpoint on whether humans are equal or not is reached in each country. If in any country humans become consistently recognized and treated as equal by government laws and policies, then the democracy will become stable again as after the American Civil War over slavery. If in any country humans instead become consistently treated as NOT necessarily equal and so some humans can be legally killed, as previously some humans could be legally enslaved — which can only happen by those who think humans are not equal and can be killed living out their values and violently threatening into silence those believers in the TRADITIONAL WESTERN VALUES HUMAN RIGHTS AND DEMOCRACY ARE HISTORICALLY AND LOGICALLY BUILT ON who think humans are equal and must not be killed – then that society will continue to become increasingly anti-human, totalitarian and ultimately lose democracy entirely. It should be noted here that although such “Pro-Choice” “hard persecution” violence to silence the “Pro-Life” voice has not commonly occurred (though there have been disturbing incidents of vandalism of Pro-Life displays, even on university campuses while campus security was conveniently absent, a cowardly Pro-Choice way of shutting down intellectual debate on university campuses since all the facts of science, history, and logic support the Pro-Life position), in fact the ultimately democracy-ending Pro-Choice “soft persecution” to bully into silence the Pro-Life voice has already begun in earnest – the only reason Human Rights and Freedoms Forever! exists to educate Westerners in the historical and logical foundations of all Human Rights and Democratic Freedoms is in RESPONSE to the fact more and more citizens in more and more professions (including duly elected officials “whipped” into silence by their now officially anti-democratic “Pro-Choice-to-Kill-Humans” parties) are at least at work being bullied into silence about their traditional Western, democracy-grounding values. This current trend can only ultimately destroy democracy, because in any genuinely free democracy which is founded on Human Rights, “Pro-Human-Right-to-Live” or “Pro-Life” citizens will always be FREE to proclaim the TRADITIONAL WESTERN VALUES Human Rights and Democracy were built on and FREE to protest the ultimately anti-democratic “Pro-Choice-to-Kill-Humans” killing of humans by legal abortion (and euthanasia) and FREE to spread “the education necessary to preserve democracy now under attack” (which is based on undisputed historical and scientific facts connected with clear, sound logic, so there can be NO legitimate nor DEMOCRATIC objection to spreading this education, and ONLY TOTALITARIAN CREEPS WOULD EVEN TRY TO OBJECT – and only on the illegitimate basis that the actual facts of history, science and logic deny the validity of their “Pro-Choice-to-Kill-Humans” position!). And since such educated “Pro-Lifers” and “Democracy Pledgers” are just “New Abolitionists” incessantly pestering their government to abolish legal abortion exactly the same way the original Abolitionists incessantly pestered their government to abolish legal slavery FOR EXACTLY THE SAME REASON – THAT HUMAN RIGHTS ARE FOR ALL HUMANS – any “Pro-Choice” (that is “Pro-Choice-to-Kill-Humans”) opposition from any government or from unruly “Pro-Choice” citizens REVEALS THE OPPOSERS AS “TOTALITARIAN CREEPS” WITH NO LOVE OF GENUINE DEMOCRACY AND NO REGARD FOR GENUINE HUMAN RIGHTS – AND REVEALS ANY SUCH POLITICIANS AS COMPLETELY UNFIT TO LEAD A LASTING DEMOCRACY BECAUSE THEY THEN HAVE SET THEMSELVES IN OPPOSITION TO THE FOUNDATIONAL PRINCIPLES OF HUMAN RIGHTS AND DEMOCRACY which are now clearly laid out for all intelligent people to easily recognize in PLEDGE PART I of The Pledge of Allegiance to Democracy (and the Antidote to Any Degree of “Creeping Totalitarianism), alternately titled Democracy 101:What Every World Citizen Needs to Know to Be EDUCATED Enough to Make Sure Human Rights and Democratic Freedoms Last Forever on Their Firm Historical, Scientific, and Logical Foundations.
Gandhi’s Sequence of Progressive Government Response to Non-Violent Protest Against Injustice Indicates the “Pro-Human-Right-to-Live” (or “Pro-Life”) Side Will Soon Win the Victory of Human Rights For All Humans Against Current Democracy-Destroying “Pro-Choice-to-Kill-Humans” (or “Pro-Choice”) Laws and Policies [rough draft article]
[ Note – I wanted to finish this collection of First Draft articles which help unfold the “Winning Strategy” with even more positive news (and guiding strategy) for all the “Pro-Lifers” who have been jaded and discouraged by the past decades of being ignored by their governments. Their patiently upholding the Human Rights for All Humans cause during that stage is about to be rewarded as the conditions which allowed governments to ignore their voice so long are changing and governments cannot ignore them much longer. “Pro-Lifers” can take advantage of this change to great effect for lasting Democracy if they are aware of it. ]
The classic description attributed to Gandhi of the stages of government response to non-violently seeking political change where there has been injustice, when genuine rights have been trampled by the government is: “First they ignore you. Then they ridicule you. Then they persecute you. Then you win.” Of course, this works best with at least ostensibly democratic or otherwise benevolent governments – brutal totalitarian States which do not need to at least “act” democratic or benevolent might go right to brutal persecution to violently quell any dissent to their unjust totalitarian policies which trample Human Rights (though the ultimate power of non-violent non-compliance to challenge even totalitarian governments to connect with their basic humanity and rethink their inhuman policies should not be underestimated – the Polish Solidarity movement helped to end the full-blown totalitarian Soviet Union).
Now, it is true our current compromised democracies in foolish ignorance followed the totalitarian Soviet and Nazi precedent of de-criminalizing abortion, in uneducated ignorance adopting the totalitarian approach to human life and effectively eradicating the legally recognized Inherent Human Right to Live, which started the current “Creeping Totalitarianism” which is now “coming of age” in many recent assaults on human life, free speech, religious freedom and democracy itself. Even so, since our now-compromised “Creeping Totalitarian” governments still claim to be democracies even if they are getting closer to being DINOs – “Democracies In Name Only” – they still have to at least keep up the appearances of being free democracies that support Human Rights (even though there have not been genuine Human Rights ever since legal abortion logically cancelled out the legally recognized Inherent Human Right to Live). So Gandhi’s sequence of progressive government response to legitimate protest against injustice definitely still applies: “First they ignore you. Then the ridicule you. Then the persecute you. Then you win.” When a government that fancies itself democratic or benevolent to humans (and not totalitarian) realizes that they can no longer ignore nor ridicule nor persecute the protest movement against a legitimate complaint against injustice or a Human Rights violation without betraying their own best principles and becoming obvious Human Rights violators themselves by violently quelling those standing up for justice or genuine Human Rights, then they concede to the protesters and correct the injustice, and uphold Human Rights. In this manner Gandhi’s non-violent non-acceptance of injustice convinced the British Empire to change certain prejudiced policies (in South Africa and India) which did not treat all human citizens of the Empire equally (and eventually to peacefully leave India – on friendly terms – to rule itself). Even though some British policies did not live up to Britain’s own highest, traditional Western (Christian) ideals of equal human preciousness, still Britain had these ideals. And thus Gandhi’s non-violent non-compliance with injustice, when they could no longer ignore it, forced the British in South Africa and India to realize that to continue the status quo of their existing prejudiced policies, they would have to become their own definition of totalitarian monsters through repeated, consistent persecution through arrests or violence of those who would no longer put up with the injustice of the government not treating all humans under their power equally. So the British government, after some incidents of violent persecution they themselves found highly distasteful, but which were necessary if they really wanted to enforce their current unjust laws which did not treat humans as equally valuable, had to concede that their laws and policies were unjust – and changed them.
[footnote: And then they even left India to rule itself on peaceful terms, which corrected the unusual situation that India was not even a proper British colony but had been militarily taken over by the British East India Company in the course of protecting its trading interests in India (by 1757), and a hundred years later after a rebellion due to mismanagement, the British government took over control of India from the company (1858).]
They would have to be monsters to continue to enforce compliance upon those refusing to accept the injustice and non-violently protesting it. So they finally decided they were not monsters, upheld their own highest democratic ideals and conceded to justice which treats humans equally, changing laws and policies which did not treat all humans equally. All “Pro-Human-Right-to-Live” “Pro-Lifers” (New Abolitionists) are doing is in the same way standing up for the just equal treatment of all humans, for the equal Human Rights for All Humans that is the historical and logical ground of Democracy, by protesting the injustice of legal abortion which similarly does not treat all humans equally because of one kind of bigoted prejudice or another which cannot in any way be justified by the science of human life (age-bigotry “this human that is smaller than me has no rights” instead of race-bigotry “this human that is darker-skinned than me has less rights”). Since all instances of not granting all humans equal Human Rights are unjust, my below analysis of Gandhi’s Sequence of Progressive Government Response to Non-Violent Protest Against Injustice indicates that “Pro-Lifers” can soon expect a major victory for their cause of having preborn humans treated equally with the same rights other humans have.
Now, how “soon” is “soon” will vary a great deal from country to country, but according to Gandhi’s progression we will soon have a “Pro-Life” Human Rights for All Humans victory, because the “Pro-Choice abortion” side has kept the upper hand so long only by staying in Gandhi’s “ignoring” stage, which it cannot do for much longer; and they cannot seriously ridicule the “Pro-Life” side without looking like idiots themselves since the great weight of history, science and logic support the “Pro-Life” position as essential to lasting Human Rights and Democracy (this was always the case, which is why there has not so far been serious ridicule of the Pro-Life side, which would invite average people to really examine the relative merits of each side’s case and see the side against current abortion law is much stronger; but now Democracy 101 & The Pledge of Allegiance to Democracy has made it extremely easy for anyone to see that in fact Pro-Life = Pro-Democracy); and they also cannot seriously violently persecute the “Pro-Life” side to silence it without looking totalitarian and anti-democratic for violently suppressing peaceful “Pro-Life” Human Rights advocates who are only reminding people that killing humans is wrong and championing Human Rights for All Humans in a democracy that is supposed to recognize Human Rights; this means the only stage they can reasonably progress to, as continuing to ignore the “Pro-Life” voice becomes no longer viable, is to conceding we win and abolishing abortion so that Human Rights are for All Humans, now that the naturally-ensuing rotten “Creeping Totalitarian” fruit of legal abortion cancelling the Inherent Human Right to Live has grown to its logical democracy-compromising maturity. The logical ultimately totalitarian results of de-criminalized abortion (which followed the precedent of the totalitarian Soviets and Nazis in the first place) can no longer be hidden; this natural fruit of abortion has grown too large, and they can no longer ignore the “Pro-Life” voice which can now point at obvious compromises of democracy which are specifically to ensure “abortion access” or other anti-traditional values contrary to Democracy’s historical and logical foundations.
To unpack this reason for hope of coming victory further: The Western democratic governments which foolishly followed the oppressive and totalitarian Soviet and Nazi precedent of de-criminalizing abortion, which have since been suffering under a gradually increasing “Creeping Totalitarianism” because they adopted the totalitarian perspective on human life and abandoned Democracy’s foundation in the Inherent Human Right to Live, have been in the first response stage of ignoring the “Pro-Life” voice of reason pointing out that killing humans is wrong for decades. Sometimes “Pro-Choicers” go to the next stage and ridicule “Pro-Lifers,” but usually only in an infantile way of mocking what they are too ignorant or unintelligent to understand, so their ridicule only makes themselves look foolish. For example, at a “Pro-Life” gathering to pray across from Canada’s first abortion clinic I once heard a “Pro-Choice” heckler shout “why don’t you get educated?” It was unclear what he even thought was an “educated” perspective on human life issues. Did he think “educated” people recognize abortion is legal because Human Rights are only for some humans? In that case he thinks slave-owners and Nazis are “educated” and should be emulated. Did he think that “educated” people do not recognize preborn humans are humans? In that case his version of “educated” people do not believe in biological science. Did he think “educated” people make distinctions between biological human lives with unique human DNA in the womb who can be legally killed and human beings or human persons out of the womb who have human rights and must not be killed? In that case his version of “educated” people have no clue as to the history and the meaning of the terms “being” and “person” (as described in Chapter 3 of The Education Necessary to Preserve Democracy Now Under Attack), and he thinks “educated” people make distinctions between which humans do or do not have Human Rights even though the Universal Declaration of Human Rights declares Human Rights are for all “without distinction of any kind” because “recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of ALL members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world,” and there is no intellectually justifiable way to interpret the Declaration, especially in its 1948 historical context, that allows for legal abortion (as discussed in Article 23 of the Pledge of Allegiance to Democracy and Article 7 of the New Abolitionist Manifesto of Solidarity).
The point here is that “Pro-Choicers” can mock with insubstantial “hot air” like immature children do but cannot ridicule “Pro-Lifers” substantially at all, since all the facts of history, science, and logic support the “Pro-Life” position that Human Rights are for all humans and this should be implemented in any democracy that wants to remain a democracy – so most often “Pro-Choicers” just stick to just ignoring the “Pro-Life” voice. And having no good nor intellectually justifiable nor democratically justifiable reasons to go to the next stage after ridicule and persecute “Pro-Lifers” harshly to shut them up completely (and having no need to do so as long as “Pro-Lifers” publicly march every year and the government still ignores them in policy as they have been for decades so nothing changes), “Pro-Choice” totalitarian creeps in government and workplaces have instead just been slowly increasing the “soft” persecution of “Pro-Lifers” through informal or formal workplace policies for a long time, gradually making it more and more uncomfortable for “Pro-Life” Human Rights advocates to speak freely their traditional, democracy-grounding values at work without negative consequences (and random “Pro-Choice” citizens routinely vandalize “Pro-Life” signs and other “Pro-Life” advocacy for Human Rights). But these anti-democratic, anti-Human Rights tactics have “come to a head” and gone about as far as they can go without “Pro-Choicers” resorting to actual violence or mass arrests or trumped-up false charges and the like to obviously and undemocratically silence the “Pro-Life” voice which they cannot ultimately beat nor completely silence by any other way than brutally violent totalitarianism – which even most “Pro-Choicers” themselves are not ready to do, because even though they allow violent murderous bigoted hatred upon preborn humans whose Human Rights they deny (like Black humans’ rights were previously denied by the same kind of bigotry that denies Human Rights to some humans), I charitably assume most “Pro-Choicers” – politicians or voters – are more ignorant than they are evil, and so most (except the most evil) will be shocked into realizing Human Rights HAVE TO be for ALL humans for lasting democracy, once they realize that the only way they can keep abortion legal long-term and silence the growing number of educated “Pro-Human-Right-to-Live” voters is to take the current “Creeping Totalitarianism” attempting to bully “Pro-Lifers” into silence all the way to its formal democracy-ending violent conclusions – like they did in Nazi Germany, which like with legal slavery and like with legal abortion also denied Human Rights to some humans.
All this is because just like the very similar Human Rights abuse of legal slavery (which denied Human Rights to some humans) could not last long-term with democracy, but society had to choose to either keep legal slavery and lose democracy, or else keep democracy and lose legal slavery, so society today has to choose to either lose democracy and keep legal abortion that also denies human rights to some humans, or else keep democracy and lose legal abortion. Faced at end with this decision, it is a “no-brainer” to keep free democracy and lose the massive Human Rights violation that is the abortion-killing of humans. So the ONLY reason legal abortion, which is so fundamentally incompatible with Democracy and Human Rights that it legally cancels out the Inherent Human Right to Live, has stayed legal for so long is because “Pro-Choicers,” whether politicians or citizens, have stubbornly avoided the thorough and rational debate they would lose and have stayed in Gandhi’s “ignoring” stage unusually long – just because they have no reasonable grounds nor excuse to advance to the “ridicule” stage and ridicule “Pro-Life” Human Rights advocates for reminding everyone that killing humans is wrong without looking either colossally stupid or evil bigots for denying Equal Human Rights to all humans, like all bigots do. “Pro-Choice” governments also cannot advance to the stage of open violent persecution of “Pro-Life” Human Rights advocates without declaring themselves totalitarian. There is not and cannot possibly ever be any legitimate democratic reason for “Pro-Choice” politicians or citizens to violently silence the Human-Rights advocacy of peaceful “Pro-Life” demonstrations and educational information sessions and materials based on the undisputed historical and scientific facts, logically connected, which underlie the “Pro-Life” Foundational Principles of Human Rights and Democracy; so there is no way the “Pro-Life” voice can ever be silenced without the obviously unjust and totalitarian, brutal violent suppression of “Pro-Lifers” by “Pro-Choicers,” which will immediately declare to the world that democracy has ended wherever that happens.
But – this is key – neither can the “Pro-Choice” “Creeping Totalitarian” forces in any country continue to stay where they are and continue to ignore the “Pro-Life” / “Pro-Human-Right-to-Live voice. Now that it has been a full generation since abortion was de-criminalized, the naturally rotten, totalitarian fruit of that decision is becoming increasingly evident. The ultimately totalitarian nature of “Pro-Choice” philosophy since ancient times can no longer be hidden, and people are starting to stand up against “Pro-Choice” “Creeping Totalitarianism.” There are now so many citizens in so many professions and jurisdictions who have suffered the “soft” persecution of being bullied into silence by threats to jobs or funding for so long that they are finally starting to realize that their very democratic freedoms are being trampled and they are finally starting to mobilize and stand up for their legitimate democratic rights to believe in AND SPEAK and stand up for the Human Rights for All Humans which are the historical and logical foundation of Democracy itself, against this long-growing anti-democratic “Pro-Choice-to-Kill-Humans” and “Creeping Totalitarian” trend to bully them into silence. In Canada’s largest province of Ontario, doctors now have literally had their democratic freedom of conscience and free speech to not to kill humans taken away, specifically to make sure all citizens have “abortion access.” Where there is no Inherent Human Right to Live because abortion is legal the patient’s “right to kill humans” now trumps the democratic freedom of conscience of doctors not to kill and the government-regulated agency governing doctors now has the power to take the medical licence away from doctors who refuse to participate in human-killing abortions and euthanasia which they can now be FORCED to participate in at least by “effective referral” or else lose their jobs and livelihood. Similarly, U.S. Presidential hopeful Hilary Clinton even said publicly (April 23, 2015) that her government, to ensure abortion access, would use “political will” to “change” “deep-seated…religious beliefs” — just like in totalitarian States! Wherever the ultimately anti-democratic “Pro-Choice-to-Kill-Humans” philosophy holds sway, the human rights and democratic freedoms of doctors and others – even to hold their deep religious beliefs in the equal precious value of every human which grounds democracy – can be trampled as long as it means humans can be killed without impediment and without anybody complaining – like in totalitarian States!
Very many American voters who were not “Pro-Choice” “totalitarian creeps” themselves were terrified of losing their religious freedom under Hilary’s Presidency, and, because she really was not qualified to lead a genuine democracy, against all pollsters predictions which had not considered them, these voters who believe in the TRADITIONAL values Human Rights and Democracy were BUILT ON and NEED TO LAST “tipped the scales” and handed a landslide victory to her opponent who (despite flawed and unorthodox character) promised to support the “Pro-Life” (and therefore Pro-Democracy) cause. Citizens with traditional (democracy-grounding) values who long put up with the “status quo” of legal abortion under governments which stayed as long as they could in Gandhi’s stage of government “ignoring” the protests against injustice against Human Rights for All Humans are now starting to mobilize and challenge their increasingly “In Name Only” Democratic (“DINO”) governments, simply because they HAVE TO if they want to keep their democratic freedoms, as 40+ years of “Pro-Choice-to-Kill-Humans” “Creeping Totalitarianism” is starting to show its mature totalitarian fruit. And now these citizens have access to “The Education Necessary to Preserve Democracy Now Under Attack” and especially to Democracy 101 & The Pledge of Allegiance to Democracy with the now-clearly articulated Foundational Principles of Human Rights and Democracy and the Core Principles of Lasting Democracy, which makes it easy for anyone to see just how “Pro-Life = Pro-Democracy” and “Pro-Choice = Pro-Totalitarianism” (based on so many undisputed historical facts and such clear, sound logic that the “Pro-Choice-to-Kill-Humans” side cannot deny them without looking uneducated and ignorant, or unintelligent, or evil). As the ever-increasing number of citizens educated in the Foundational Principles of Human Rights and Democracy who want their democracies to last as democracies stand up in Solidarity against the forces of “Creeping Totalitarianism” in their country (as the Polish Solidarity movement stood up against even full-blown Soviet Totalitarianism), the forces of “Pro-Choice-to-Kill-Humans” “Creeping Totalitarianism” will NO LONGER BE ABLE TO STAY IN GANDHI’S NOTED STAGE OF “IGNORING” the “Pro-Human-Right-to-Live” “Pro-Life = Pro-Democracy” voice which is simply pointing out the injustice of humans not being treated equally by current policies. And “Pro-Choice-to-Kill-Humans” forces cannot advance to Gandhi’s noted “ridiculing” stage without being ridiculed themselves, since they can have no possible intellectually honest response to seriously challenge the mostly compelling and unassailable facts and logic underlying Human Rights and Democracy which are laid out clearly in Democracy 101 ( at most they can attempt the same weak kind of mere emotional appeals, or “smoke and mirrors” of distracting people with less relevant facts which the “Pro-Choice” side has used to get and keep abortion legal so far – but people educated in where Human Rights and Freedoms actually come from will no longer be fooled). And since, in most democracies, even those more disturbingly tainted by current trends of “Creeping Totalitarianism,” if you ask anyone on the streets if they believe in Human Rights and Democracy, they will still probably say ‘yes,’ this means that most Western democracies now compromised by “Creeping Totalitarianism” are still not so advanced in totalitarianism that the government can get away with open violent persecution of “Pro-Life” Human Rights advocates who are only standing up for Human Rights for All Humans because killing humans is wrong. Doing so would only initiate an international outrage against “Pro-Choice/ Pro-Choice-to-Kill-Humans” philosophy finally going to its logical totalitarian conclusions (the Human-killing totalitarian Soviets and Nazis were the first to de-criminalize abortion human-killing, remember!) which would eventually guarantee the totalitarianism (and the “Pro-Choice” philosophy which spawned it) stops.
So in NOW starting to STAND UP in Solidarity against “Pro-Choice-to-Kill-Humans” anti-democratic “Creeping Totalitarianism,” armed with the solid Human Rights education of undisputed historical and scientific facts and compelling logic of Democracy 101 & The Pledge of Allegiance to Democracy and The Education Necessary to Preserve Democracy Now Under Attack, which can neither be ignored nor ridiculed without governments looking foolish or evil, the “Pro-Human-Right-to-Live” or “Pro-Life” protesters will finally HAVE TO BE CONCEDED TO BY THEIR GOVERNMENTS which in most cases, as badly as they may have been compromised by “Creeping Totalitarianism,” are probably not yet near so far gone as to instead of conceding officially end democracy by violently persecuting “Pro-Lifers” who are just “New Abolitionists” incessantly and with increasing volume, like the original Abolitionists before them, standing up for Human Rights for All Humans and the end of the major Human Rights violation of their day (originally legal slavery; now legal abortion, both of which violate the same Foundational Principles of Human Rights and Democracy which start with EQUAL HUMAN PRECIOUSNESS).
The “Pro-Choice” side of the abortion debate is literally the “Pro-Choice-to-Kill-Humans” side that does not believe killing humans is wrong but thinks the government can legislate human-killing just like in any totalitarian State, literally following the precedent of the evil totalitarian Soviet and Nazi governments who also did not believe killing humans is wrong and so were the first two national governments to de-criminalize human-killing by abortion (the Soviets in 1920 and the Nazis in 1934; the Nazis also first decriminalizing human-killing by euthanasia). And these two governments whose precedent was followed in de-criminalizing abortion of preborn humans later committed the two biggest genocides of born humans in history – not surprisingly, since legal abortion had already established there was no legally recognized Inherent Human Right to Live in these countries. Educated human voters who know all their Human Rights and Democratic Freedoms depend ultimately on the legally recognized Inherent Human Right to Live, as they increase in number because of the spread of Democracy 101 & The Pledge of Allegiance to Democracy by “Democracy Pledgers” actively implementing the above “Winning Strategy,” will simply no longer tolerate the human-killing, human rights violations of uneducated and ignorant, or unintelligent, or evil “Pro-Choice” politicians who do not even know that killing humans is wrong.
Just what numbers or percentage of educated voters with traditional, democracy-grounding values it will take will vary from country to country. But once enough educated voters who will no longer put up with “Creeping Totalitarianism” stand up together in Solidarity against it, armed with the impregnable facts and logic of Democracy 101 & The Pledge of Allegiance to Democracy, incessantly advocating, petitioning, and demanding from their government Human Rights for All Humans and for the actual implementation of the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights which ideally should have prevented de-criminalized abortion in the first place (see Article 23 of the Pledge) — all the terrifying momentum of the current anti-democratic “Creeping Totalitarianism” will fall like a house of cards just like even the much more terrifying full-blown Soviet Communist totalitarianism did after the people – good people with traditional Western values – in Poland stood up in Solidarity against hardline Communist totalitarianism. It has been noted that Nazi Germany’s violent atrocities could never have happened IF the good Germans had stood up TOGETHER against the EARLY STAGES of Nazi totalitarianism when it was still “Creeping.” But even the full-blown totalitarian Soviet Union could not just brutally crush all the traditional believers in traditional (democracy-grounding) values standing up in Solidarity against them, but eventually conceded to democracy, in a bloodless fall which happened more quickly than anyone imagined. The current merely “creeping” totalitarianism in most Western countries also will FALL LIKE A HOUSE OF CARDS when we stand up together against it, for the sake of genuine and lasting freedom and Human Rights for All Humans.
By “standing up together against it,” at this time I primarily mean by people all over implementing the “Winning Strategy for the ‘Culture of Life’ to WIN the ‘Cultural War’ with the ‘Culture of Death” to Save Humanity Forever from ‘Creeping Totalitarianism’ ” — primarily by reading and spreading knowledge of Democracy 101 & the Pledge of Allegiance to Democracy, and gathering together to read and learn it in Lasting Democracy Study Nights, attending “Pro-Life” marches and protests and by letting politicians and political parties know that educated citizens who are “Democracy Pledgers” concerned to ensure Democracy lasts EXPECT the parties to field “Pro-Human-Right-to-Live” candidates as the only candidates truly qualified to lead a lasting democracy because only they uphold The Foundational Principles of Human Rights and Democracy. At least at this stage, I do not advocate civil disobedience like that which Gandhi led to stop injustice at all, because I do not think it necessary for good citizens of Western democracies, who believe in the Foundational Principles of Human Rights and Democracy, to behave in any way badly just because their governments are behaving so badly by ignoring the Foundational Principles of Human Rights and Democracy and denying Human Rights to some humans and progressing anti-democratic “Creeping Totalitarian” “Pro-Choice-to-Kill-Humans” and other anti-traditional policies. Since most governments are probably behaving this badly just because they are uneducated and ignorant of Human Rights history, I think they deserve a chance to get educated. I think they deserve our civil obedience at least until they have proven themselves more evil and unjust than ignorant, by refusing to get educated in the history, science and logic undergirding all Human Rights and democratic freedoms, now that this education has been clearly identified from undisputed facts and clear, sound logic, and made readily available. Just because any reasonable democratic governments should listen to these democracy-grounding facts and logic now laid bare and laid out for anyone of intelligence to see, I think there should be no need for any civil disobedience to convince governments to change the unjust abortion laws which cancel out the Inherent Human Right to Live and undermine the very fabric of our free and democratic way of life.
However, I admit that IF they STILL do not get a Human Right education and end abortion for the sake of lasting democracy, IF they CONTINUE the “Creeping Totalitarianism” currently undermining democracy, THEN Gandhi’s example does show the way to force their hand and show their true totalitarian colours until they themselves are shocked at how much they have to prove themselves monsters in order to keep their favorite convenient Human Rights abuses that deny Human Rights to some humans and make all Human Rights meaningless if none of us had them when we started our human lives in the womb. In this case, I will let Gandhi speak of non-violent non-compliance with injustice, in his words from the excellent 1982 Gandhi movie, winner of 8 Academy Awards including Best Picture:
“The function of a civil resister is to provoke response. And we will continue to provoke until they respond or they change the law. They are not in control. We are. That is the strength of civil resistance.”
“What you CANNOT do is ACCEPT injustice from Hitler or anyone. You must make the injustice visible. Be prepared to die like a soldier to do so.” [at the violent hands of the oppressor who does not concede to your non-violent non-compliance with injustice]
In this, Gandhi shows what he said earlier in the movie, that non-violence is NOT passive resistance. I stress that I think it should NOT be necessary to use Gandhi’s style of non-violent civil resistance to end abortion (and with it “Creeping Totalitarianism”), because I assume most “Pro-Choicers” are intelligent enough to concede to Democracy 101’s powerful Human Rights education rather than prove themselves totalitarian monsters who are willing to terrorize by arrest or violence peaceful “Pro-Life” Human Rights advocates, just so that they can continue to kill human babies without being impeded by the pesky morals of those who believe in the Foundational Principles of Human Rights and Democracy that killing humans is wrong because Human Rights are for All Humans. But IF in any particular country, the “Pro-Choice-to-Kill-Humans” side STILL does not submit to justice and change the law, but gets more violent to shut up the “Pro-Human-Right-to-Live” or “Pro-Life” voice, then Gandhi’s method is the one which will work against those governments (if any) too evil or too colossally stupid to submit to sound reason as that in Democracy 101. IF in any particular country they show themselves willing to kill us to keep killing humans legally and we are willing to die at the hands of their bigoted violent hatred for human babies and any humans who will try to protect them, thus fully advancing to Gandhi’s “then they persecute you” stage, the next stage after that is “then you win.” They will not be able to sustain that long in the International Community. Note that I am giving “Pro-Choice” politicians the benefit of the doubt, making the charitable assumption they are only ignorant and not evil and will just change the law in response to the solid Human Rights education of Democracy 101. I hope they appreciate that I thus assume the best of them (even though up until now they have denied killing humans is wrong and like every bigot denied equal Human Rights for All Humans) and I hope they do not prove me wrong by proving it necessary to go to non-violent civil disobedience to fully expose their underlying bigoted evil hatred for humanity.
