Evil is a concept some refuse to accept. In a world of no absolutes evil becomes a quaint idea of days gone by. A throwback to a time when man was less “civilized.” Things like barbarity are not on the minds of those with an eye on the future. Unfortunately, evil did not cease to exist at the end of the Dark Ages. The difference today is that the barbarians are not just at the gate, they are in our schools, working in the media and some case even in our homes; an all corrupting influence that is spreading death and laying waste to civilization.
Recently the main stream media (MSM) published daily reports on a dying woman and her decision to kill herself after she had done all she had laid out to accomplish. Each completion of an item on her bucket list was followed with morbid curiosity. When she had completed the list and fulfilled her oath, the MSM presented the act as something heroic. While her fear of a slow death is understandable, the truth is she died a coward.
While modern liberalism applauds the person who chooses suicide rather than endure a fight they most surely will lose, they also have an eye on the crippled, infirmed and unwanted. This is the start of an expanding death cult that envelopes the mind of those who are not immediately repelled by it.
The euthanasia movement has taken hold in much of Europe and even parts of the U.S. In Belgium the murder of children has been legalized, under strict controls of course. In the Netherlands, where euthanasia has been legal for sometime, it is an open secret that people are often put out of the states and/or family’s misery without their consent. In the United States similar tactics are being looked at as a cost savings measure. Economist Paul Krugman said in an interview that the deficit should be paid for by taxes and death panels (by this he meant panels charged with determining who gets vital medical care and who does not). ObamaCare originally contained a provision for end of life counseling whose aim it was to encourage the elderly to forgo life extending treatments. It still has within it cost containment panels whose function is very much what Krugman envisions.
It is not just the elderly and handicapped that are at risk of being declared not worth keeping alive. Across college campuses a new trend has been spotted, that of supporting postpartum abortions, otherwise known as infanticide. The idea of killing young children is not new; progressives/liberals have embraced the idea since at least the turn of the twentieth century. Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood, thought it perfectly acceptable for some families to kill off their younger offspring. Professor Peter Singer of Princeton, a member of their bioethics department no less, openly supports the idea as well. To quote Singer, “Human babies are not born self-aware, or capable of grasping that they exist over time. They are not persons.” But animals are self-aware, and therefore, “the life of a newborn is of less value than the life of a pig, a dog, or a chimpanzee.” (from his book Practical Ethics) Bio ethicist Alberto Giubilini, and Francesca Minerva published a paper in the Journal of Medical Ethics on the subject, suggesting that “death is sometimes in the best interest of the child.” Not merely confined to the halls of academia, some of leftist in the Media and Hollywood are also on the infanticide bandwagon. MSNBC anchor Melissa Harris-Perry is on record saying around age three is a good limit for abortion. Actress and abortion activist Ellen Barkin argued on twitter that babies are not people because they can’t talk, a statement that got its share of retweets and favorites.
The idea of that those who cannot possibly contribute to society are not worth the effort to keep them alive has always been part of the lefts ideology. Rousseau talked about it and during the the French Revolution Guillotines hummed as the Committee for Public Safety tried to rid France of its chattel. Progressive icon George Bernard Shaw declared those who can’t justify their existence should be humanely gassed to death. He even called on scientist to develop a painless humane gas for just that purpose, a suggestion the NAZI’s took to heart. Unfortunately, liberal elites have not cornered the market of death.
A continent away, the death cult has taken another form. In the Middle East ISIS has embraced the devil and found in him a kindred spirit. Killing by the thousands those who do not hold every tittle of their doctrine, many of their victims are tortured to entertain their twisted minds. Women and children are raped in mass and Christians massacred or enslaved. In response most of the world sets idly by, sipping coffee and tea. Ignoring the fact those same demons from hell inflicting such carnage on those so far away, promise to bring the same to them!
While many may want to believe the age of barbarity is ancient history, the truth is a new age of barbarity is upon the world. An all consuming darkness is moving upon the land seeking who it may destroy. Whether it is elitist who think they have the right to hold the power of life and death in their hands, or religious fanatics who think a devil’s deal will bring them paradise, modern death cults are no less barbaric than their Dark Ages cousins.
