Your heart belongs to Barry 3

You think you own your body?

Well, you don’t.

How can you be so selfish, so acquisitive, so greedy as to want to claim permanent possession of it?

You have no moral claim to it whatsoever. Any more than to any other private property.

As Proudhon said: ‘Property is theft.’

Or at most a loan.

You’ve only got your body on loan from the community.

Not only must it be returned to common ownership after your death, but bits of it can be taken away from you while you’re still alive.

So says Obama’s ‘regulatory czar’, Cass Sunstein.  He proposes the ‘routine removal’ of human organs from the dead, because ‘the state owns the rights to body parts of people who are dead or in certain hopeless conditions, and it can remove their organs without asking anyone’s permission.’

    Not “atheist” mind. “Socialist” mind. And theodicy often smacks of consequentialism. Perhaps God intended the fatal car crash that permitted Mr. Organ to donate to Mr. Needy. God's plan has the greater good in view, as does the socialists'.

    I don't know if that is true or not but it certainly highlights, once again, the arrogant self-obsession of the atheist mind.

      The Atheist mind?
      Try the socialist mind, the collectivist mind, the arrogant mind.
      These people have all the theories, all the answers, all the explanations. Of course they have never got their asses to provide a saleable service to any body. This is the totalitarian mind in stark relief, and Makarios, if the pope wanted it, you would suport it!
