Justice Thomas: Enslavement Does Not Cost You Your Dignity or Humanity
Clarence, we all get that you’re hating on anything that liberals like. Government that exists above the level of anarchy, more rights than a medieval Russian serf, free access to oxygen, etc., etc.
The notion that enslavement does not involve the loss of your dignity and humanity? And you wrote that down on paper and published it for the world to see?
This is a vision into the interior of a deranged mind, filled with nothing but reflexive anger and hatred. When human beings are chained up and sold as objects - that, by definition, costs them their humanity. When they are whipped, raped, tortured, worked to death - that is the very essence of loss of dignity.
Clarence (I will not call him Justice Thomas any further, since whatever principles he adheres to no longer have anything to do with Justice) seems to believe in the fiction that some noble slaves were able to perservere and hold their heads up high with dignity
This is in keeping with the whole right-wing myth that everyone can just pull themselves up by their own bootstraps, if they aren’t shiftless and lazy, and just work hard.
It is a belief that is only possible if someone is either demented, or willfully delusional. Magical thinking.
