As has happened so many times in my life, synchronicity strikes again.
I read about an assault on a gynaecologist in this morning’s newspapers. Abortion is legal in India incidentally, but only under specified circumstances. This is an adjunct to our thrust on family planning and I have no quarrel with the legality or the ethics part of it. Since there are other problems involved in that, I don’t wish to elaborate but suffice it to say, that I am impressed by the doctor’s insistence on being on the right side of the law and condemn the goons who attacked him.
I read the newspapers in the morning and after my siesta earlier this afternoon, I got this clip in Whatsapp from a friend.
And that is the synchronicity!

The Angel “introduced” me to George Carlin just a few weeks ago, thinking I
might find him interesting. Can’t say I particularly like his delivery but he sure does make many a valid point.
As you know, “ethics” are what exercises me round the clock. If I had my time again I’d specialize in the law of ethics- and probably kill myself ten years in, latest.
Ethics is a bugger. Every which way.
I do believe in the sanctity of life – but not at all cost. Late abortions present a major dilemma. Not least for the operating team. It’s one thing to suck a few weeks old sack of cells out of the safe environment of his/her mother’s uterus; it’s another when you are faced with what amounts to resembling a human being. Never mind. Spare a thought for the mother.

I like George Carlin except for his liberal use of profanity. In my opinion, totally unnecessary for his messages. It spoils the aesthetics of his delivery.
😀 I love it! I don’t always like Carlin, but he scored with this one.

I have also liked carlin’s approach to “stuff.”

Yes, I think it will keep rolling on whether I like it or not, though I like it a great deal.
On a serious philosophical level, nothing is born, nothing dies, nothing happens…

I love George Carlin and his profanity is no big deal to me – he is a great commentator on many a subject.
Profanity is now the flavour of conversation but I personally find it jarring. The content of his deliveries are very likeable indeed.
It lost my entire comment and I’m too tired to recreate it. ?
