It's Time to Stop the Commerce in Death - It's Time to Stop the Commerce in Death   One of the symptoms of a society in the grips of moral crisis is a tendency to refer to reprehensible acts by soft-sounding euphemisms, by names that do not directly excite human qualms or agitate scruples and that evade precise reflection on the reality of certain situations. For example, in our modern lexicon, abortion is called "freedom of choice," sexual libertinage is dubbed "alternative lifestyles," and certain forms of genocide-in-slow-motion can be made to seem more acceptable under the name "family planning."   Such are the mental tricks and the "word magic" employed to quiet the normal functioning of our consciences....   [tags: Euthanasia Physician Assisted Suicide] 3330 words

In Italy, it was largely energetic and spectacular. Yet, if you were to travel North, you would encounter the "gloom's of muted firelight."
