Why''s everyone hot over youth in Asia? What about kids in other continents? The Dutch euthanasia law took effect today. They had been looking the other way for decades and seemingly codifying unoficial policy. This from the country that's given us legal drugs and prostitution. The interesting factoid comes the second article-"merely a third of the Dutch are members of a church." The politics of the Netherlands appear to be taking a post-Christian turn, as the political dynamic appears to be turning to a liberal-libertarian fight, with Pim Fortuyn, a gay anti-immigration libertarian being the big rising star in Dutch politcs. All these developments may cheer libertarians, but leave me queasy. I've got a longer rant in me, but it will have to keep for this evening.
