UN-Believable A Universal LICENCE for LICENTIOUSNESS
Let’s start with a short piece from Merriam-Webster dictionary on the definition of these important words titled, “The Shared Roots of License and Licentious”
License and licentious come ultimately from the same word in Latin, licentia, whose meanings ranged from “freedom to act” to “unruly behavior, wantonness.” The Latin noun was itself derived from the verb licere “to be permitted.” Though we are likely to associate license with the card that grants freedom or permission to operate a motor vehicle and licentious with sexual wantonness, in actuality, there is considerable semantic overlap between the two words. Poetic license refers to deviation from a (usually) literary norm for some purposeful effect.
A person who takes license with something (or someone) engages in “abusive disregard for rules of personal conduct.” Hence, the semantic range of license in English mirrors that of its Latin antecedent, suggesting either permission or transgression, depending upon the context. Licentious, on the other hand, always implies excessive, transgressive freedom, as is true of its immediate Latin source, licentious “unrestrained, wanton” (literally, “full of freedom”).
“Licentious, on the other hand, always implies EXCESSIVE, TRANSGRESSIVE freedom…” Keep that in mind.
That is what this document just released by the UN seeks to achieve, in my estimation, i.e., a license for a degree of libertarianism the likes of which the world has never seen nor imagined, an endorsement of flesh-serving lawlessness that would make the temple prostitutes of the Roman empire at its most decadent “peak,” (just before the collapse) feel downright virtuous!
The goal of this UN document is purely ideological, and its nature is ‘anti-faith’, promoting unrestricted access for abortion and other serious morally-problematic human behaviours with an approach that can only be described as blatant encouragement of “lawlessness”.
That is how the authors articulate and express it in the document regarding ALL forms of sexual activity between ANY AND ALL parties in [the most egregious of all] ANY AND ALL circumstances!
The goal is to further liberalize our legal tradition, it is not to persuade or convince anyone with sound science and logical argumentation, but to give ‘guidance’ to judges at the “national” levels by providing them with a powerful and official global position to cite as ‘grounds’ for ever-more liberal decisions that amount to the permission of lawlessness.
It is both “believable of the UN” to put out such a document, knowing its agenda and long-term goals, yet nonetheless shocking to me that a group of professional jurists, cited as representatives of countries from around the world, unelected and representing no one or nothing officially, only the same, shared liberal agenda they carry with them.
What about the kids, you might ask?
That troublesome “under the age of consent” principle has been nicely circumscribed and removed as a “hard” impediment to straight-up “legalizing” sex with minors with language such as:
“…sexual conduct involving persons below the domestically prescribed minimum age of consent to sex may be consensual in fact, if not in law. In this context, the enforcement of criminal law should reflect the rights and capacity of children under 18 years of age to make decisions about engaging in consensual
sexual conduct and their right to be heard in matters concerning them.”
What must be here kept in mind is that this document coming from such a powerful international committee of jurists holds tremendous influence is granting already extraordinarily-liberal-leaning judges even more grounds and discretion in treat sex against minor crimes lightly.
Here’s the bottom line: It is not legal for children to give full and informed ‘consent’ to sexual acts with adults if they are under the legal age, and adults who attempt to use that as a ‘defence’ have (until now) gotten NO WHERE with judges.
Sex under such circumstances is by its very nature exploitative and unethical, in that it involves an adult breaking the law to have sex, and the adult person with whom the underaged person is having sex with can’t override the law simply by saying “O.K.”, for a couple of dozen reasons which the members of this so-called International committee of legal experts should know full well.
They do know it full well! I’m sure of it, but like the proliferation and rapid spread of transgenderism in an attempt to overwhelm and transform culture (at a time when people have been beaten down and intimidated into silence, unwilling to risk being called a ‘transphobe’) into “Queer Culture”.
This insidious attempt to indoctrinate and normalize the world with transgender ideology is having its impact – encouraging so many to do unthinkable things to themselves, their bodies and their minds, popularizing and making “trendy” what is a tragic aberration at best [legitimate transgender dysphoria] in a growing group of (mostly female) youth [many who feel loss, unhappy and lack direction and meaning in their lives, to become what I would call “TikTok Trans Teens”…and they are doing it, in droves!
Read this: “Children are being ‘brainwashed’ by TikTok videos on ‘cool’ trans surgery viewed 26 billion times, campaigners claim,” [https://www.dailymail.co.uk/…/Children-brainwashed…].
Just in case you were reading fast….that was a “B” – Billion – not an M!
Trans is a dangerous cultural trend taking our most vulnerable and promising what will make them loss souls on a campaign to “keep changing themselves” with the point of their lives being to seek approval and acceptance from others.
These youth should be getting meaningful support for life skills and experiences of positive and constructive networking with others, doing things for the community, creating a plan for life and working to bring it about, etc., the way it used to be.
What this is creating is a kind of ‘segregated’ group of people who are constantly demanding from others, which manifests as a dangerous narcissistic, arrogant and angry social and cultural trend as more and more people are joining the “Trans mob” after suddenly developing “confusion about who they are,” as they are coached to imagine themselves happy as the other sex, part of the happy trans troupe everyone’s talking about, after just a few hours a day on TikTok for a few days.
There is a clear sense of “being special” and getting special treatment that comes with the decision and process to “go trans” – even entitlement. The attention comes with the switch, which is itself something that is likely very attractive to people feeling lonely or isolated, and the pandemic lockdowns didn’t help that much.
When that decision is made, and the person enters the trans world, all the happy talk and dreams seem to morph into mob mentality in real life. They bring happy colourful materials with them, but its all red reckless rage that usually ends up being displayed – usually right in front of police – as a form of pure intolerance, and we’re seeing this daily now in cities around the world, including here in Canada.
I’ve seen several such videos of very recent events where people being interviewed about trans, or drag queens reading to kids, are physically attacked (one guy sucker-punched hard from behind) with police watched and refused to make an arrest.
Worse still, the expression on the trans person’s face who committed the vicious assault was one of quiet confidence that he was “untouchable” as he walked away seemingly unconcerned about getting arrested when it should have been a situation of panicking at the sudden realization that the police watched you commit a crime and immediately surrendering or frantically “running from the law,” knowing you’re guilty of a serious crime and about to be arrested.
If you don’t want to read the entire 32 pages, here’s the part specifically on Consensual sexual conduct.
PRINCIPLE 16 – CONSENSUAL SEXUAL CONDUCT
“Consensual sexual conduct, irrespective of the type of sexual activity, the sex/gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression of the people involved or their marital status, may not be criminalized in any circumstances.
Consensual same-sex, as well as consensual different-sex sexual relations, or consensual sexual relations with or between trans, non-binary and other gender diverse people, or outside marriage – whether pre-marital or extramarital – may, therefore, never be criminalized.
With respect to the enforcement of criminal law, any prescribed minimum age of consent to sex must be applied in a non-discriminatory manner. Enforcement may not be linked to the sex/gender of participants or age of consent to marriage.
Moreover, sexual conduct involving persons below the domestically prescribed minimum age of consent to sex may be consensual in fact, if not in law. In this context, the enforcement of criminal law should reflect the rights and capacity of children under 18 years of age to make decisions about engaging in consensual
sexual conduct and their right to be heard in matters concerning them.
Pursuant to their evolving capacities and progressive autonomy, persons under 18 years of age should participate in decisions affecting them, with due regard to their age, maturity
and best interests, and with specific attention to non-discrimination guarantees.”
