Speaking for the Voiceless

And I think for the thoughtless.

It sounds so benevolent and righteous to "give voice to those who can't speak for themselves".   I've heard it used in order to mess with others over animals, abortion, money.  The sky is the limit when you convince people that you are the voice of those who have no voice.  Who's going to prove otherwise?

"because the earth needs a good lawyer"...Holy SH**!  Am I the only one who freaks out and screams out the window at this kind of absurdity?

Anyway, I think John Kerry said something about being the voice of the voiceless.  Words similar enough to that.  And I thought, "What does that mean?"

Obviously it is the same tactic used by priests of every culture for as long as we've had priests.  Pretend to know what God, or a rock, or the earth, or an unborn human thinks and wants.  Then get the king 'n 'em to use force (or do it yourself) to make people do what you want in the name of this mysterious unknowable thing you represent.

I'm assuming the voiceless, in this context, also can't write, or nod their heads to indicate answers to yes-no questions.

Besides thinking for the thoughtless, I bring thrills on behalf of the un-thrilling--at least that's what your wife said.  Doing for those who can't do it for themselves.

Beware those who presume to speak for those who allegedly cannot speak for themselves.
And beware  of those who claim to represent those whose existence can't be seen or tested.

 Perhaps you should advise your wife to beware as well.
