What truths do you consider obvious? What truths were obvious to most people a short 50, 100, or 150 years ago? There was a time when abortion was considered obviously evil. Most of the populace still thinks infanticide is obviously evil… but this is changing. How confident are you in the validity or invalidity of these shifts? Do you really think the “obvious truths” of our day will persist?
“We have now sunk to a depth at which the restatement of the obvious is the first duty of intelligent men.” George Orwell
There you have it. After year’s of people insisting that “Abortion is obviously different from infanticide”, now the “experts” are restating the obvious: there is….no….difference.
