A little collection

I know, I harp on about this a lot, but it really gets under my skin. The Death People at least are up front about what they want. But the media pretense of objectivity really gets me. So here I am just going to make a little sampling, for fun. (No quiz for this one and no marks will be awarded but feel free to translate into plain English for practice.)
"Her family wish her to be allowed to die..."

"An emergency decree to stop the family of Eluana from assisting her death was approved..."

"...a landmark ruling last November by Italy's top appeals court allowing Eluana the right to die..."

"Silvio Berlusconi, has further stoked the flames over a right-to-die case...


Ansa was particularly helpful:
"...scrambled to prepare a draft emergency decree to stop doctors carrying out a landmark right-to-die court ruling..."

"Eluana, who has been in a permanent vegetative state for 17 years, was transferred on Wednesday to a clinic in Udine that has offered to help her die."

"Beppino Englaro has been fighting for more than a decade for a dignified end to his daughter's life in accordance with what he says would have been her wishes."

"If the decree is passed, it will be the second time since November's court ruling that the government has blocked a clinic from helping Eluana end her life."

Tony Bland
Tracy Latimer

Eluana Englaro

None of these people were "dying".

I can understand why the media push for abortion, after all, they are mostly in it for the profit and profit requires keeping wages to minimum, which requires a labour market with an excess of people in it and babies have a nasty way of interfering with women's participation in the wage-slave trade.

But "euthanasia"? Are they trying to bump off their market? (I realise Eluana may not have been reading papers, but lots of other people wanting to be offed by doctors in hygienic environments do. So what gives?

There is, of course, the spiritual side of things, and ideology. Are the media therefore more about ideology than profit?

You're starting to get it.

Well, is it the Secularist Heresy (gliberalism), or is it the Freemasons, or both, or something else, or just Satan?
