This Week in Spain: Liberal Humanism Meets Its Logical Conclusion!

Exhibit A:

...a new European Union proposal aimed at tackling illegal immigration.

The proposal has already caused concern in Africa for criminalising immigrants and building a wall around Europe.

Exhibit B:

Spain is to become the first country to extend legal rights to apes, wrongfooting animal rights activists who have long campaigned against bullfighting in the country.

In what is thought to be the first time a national legislature has granted such rights to animals, the Spanish parliament’s environmental committee voted to approve resolutions committing the country to the Great Apes Project, designed by scientists and philosophers who say that humans’ closest biological relatives also deserve rights.

A+B = C:

A part of the bourgeoisie is desirous of redressing social grievances in order to secure the continued existence of bourgeois society.

To this section belong economists, philanthropists, humanitarians, improvers of the condition of the working class, organisers of charity, members of societies for the prevention of cruelty to animals, temperance fanatics, hole-and-corner reformers of every imaginable kind. This form of socialism has, moreover, been worked out into complete systems.

For those interested in further information on apes, for those interested in further information on Marxism.
