MacAesop’s Fables # 17 – The Fawn and His Mother

Our seventeenth Sunday outpouring of sanctimony and self-righteous morality to be taken as seriously as Sun King Salmond’s moral courage in the face of Chinese whispers.

A lama, a fawn and a non-humanitarianist

Humanitarianism is the expression of stupidity and cowardice. – Adolf Hitler. Good to see humanitarianism is lacking in today’s civic Scottish government.

A YOUNG Fawn once said to his Mother, “You are larger than a dog, and swifter, and more used to running, and you have your horns as a defense; why, then, O Mother! do the hounds frighten you so?”

She smiled, and said: “I know full well, my son, that all you say is true. I have the advantages you mention, but when I hear even the bark of a single dog I feel ready to faint, and fly away as fast as I can.”

Analysis: Just what did the Chinese consul say to the Nats? Whatever it was, it undoubtedly backs up the moral of the fable: “No arguments will give courage to the coward.”
