Unjust Justice. Against the Tyranny of International Law
Chantal Delsol es una intelectual francesa a quien necesitarían leer nuestra clase servil del poder judicial, pero especialmente nuestro quijote judicial Garzón, el que no le constaba que Franco hubiera muerto, sí, el famoso Garzón globe-trotter, prevaricador. Exacto: el del "Querido Emilio Ibarra ... necesito dinero... Firmado Juez de la Audiencia Nacional."
A book to be read along with N. Sharansky's "Defending Identity". Delsol warns about the recklessness of trying to impose a positive law, a supranational law over the sovereignity of the world nations.
When the Enlightenment finished off Christian morals in the West it left a moral wasteland that was filled by the nationalist or socialist creeds of totalitarianism. In the next wave of social engineering that our current anti-Christian Left has concocted, legal moralism is now the trend. It is the new "cool" Inquisition.
Delsol very intelligently unmasks the demagoguery of this new ideology. But is the International Court able to judge Chinese authorities for what they have done in Tibet? or put Putin in the dock for crimes committed in Chechnya? Of course not. So for the time being "international criminal justice is ... a sort of private vengeance ... I punish my neighbor ... because I can." But justice should be applicable to all equally, and should be applicable in a well-defined territory without any exceptions. Or else it ain't justice.
"The Western groups that rebel and rail against globalization do not oppose globalization as such, but liberal (Conservative) globalization ... rather they want to direct themselves the process of homogenization, they want it to occur under their banner." They are really "alternative globalists".
"A few decades ago it was the Marxists who were considered the paragons of generosity and humanity. Today ... the camp of the good is represented by the democratic defenders of human rights." Today's commisar dresses as a judge.
Delsol sees it as a modern Manicheanism: the virtuous States dominated by the liberal media, always pandering to the basic instincts of their masses, and to rogue States, against the evil West. The Inquisition comes back.
A great book. No excuse not to be warned. I believe when the US saved Europe from collaps after WWII it just made a kind of pact with the devil, for the sake of keeping business as usual. The best diagnosis, I found, is the following: "In other periods of history, Europeans have decreed that power alone counts, but today it is morality. In other periods they wanted industrialization, today they want to protect the environment. In every case, the world has to follow suit, no matter the circumstances in which others find themselves." Yeah, they want to be the deceased in the funeral, the bride in the wedding, and the victim of this self-inflicted human sacrifice.
This book gives hope to the human spirit.
