The most famous eugenicists were the Spartans. Their newborns were allowed to live only if perfectly healthy. The state did not want to be burdened by imperfect babies. The modern eugenicists advocate infanticide as being no different than abortion. According to an article in The Telegraph, a team of medical ethicists linked to Oxford University maintained that “parents should be allowed to have their newborn babies killed because they are ‘morally irrelevant.’ (Stephen Adams, February 29, 2012) The Journal of Medical Ethics published an article, “After-birth abortion: Why should the baby live?”
Comments: The last sentence of this article sums it all up perfectly.
Read "Murderous Science" by Benno Muller-Hill, who described the philosophy and the personal stories of some of the "brilliant scientists" of the German Reich. Their roots were in the eugenics movement at end-19th/early 20th Centuries, and they were the cream of the (intellectual) crop of the German University system Ph.D and M.D. programs. They were amoral and robotic in their view that "life unworthy of life" should be eliminated (i.e. "murder of human beings"). Anyone not falling within their view of acceptability was at risk of sterilization or murder. One problem is that there is no "scientific" (i.e. "objective") basis for their opinion. It´s all what the little tin gods believed, and what was useful to their political masters. These latest "scientists" are on the same murderous path.
Although this article will shock many of us, it shouldn´t. If you do not begin with the sanctity of life as a first truth, there is really no difference between abortion and infanticide, and then no difference between infanticide and genocide. We have seen it repeatedly in recent history, and never from conservative regimes, always from God-hating socialist totalitarians.
Exactly! ...And such statists can usually be regognized as, ´progressives,´ because they are the ones with their chins tilted up, up, up in in the air, glaring down their noses & sporting a superior ´tude toward those around them whom they deem to be mere mortals. ´´Equality,´´ is not a concept in their belief system despite their faux rhetoric to the contrary. ...Their actions do speak louder than their words!
The Last Sentence FTA: Verbal manipulation and influence of the low information masses is what liberals do best. Progressive liberals, a growing minority, like to control not just our moral, economic, political, and ethical lives; they want to be able to play God in both birth and death because they see themselves as the ultimate authority, an omnipotent force that can control nature and Earth.
In most cases, progressivism = moral vanity + malice. There are certainly some exceptions, individuals whose motivation, though misguided, can be said to be pure - or as pure as it is possible for a mortal´s to be. But observation and experience strongly suggest that the great majority of those parading around, beating the drum and shouting for progressive causes are impelled chiefly by moral vanity and malice. They think they are better people and have better ideas for society and the world - and they are brimming with venomous, vindictive malice towards all who dare to disagree with them. They are engaged in a form of personal psychodrama and performance art that is all about them, a form of exhibitionism laced with sadism towards opponents. It is not a pretty picture - but they cannot see themselves as others see them.
For such progressives, everything is permitted. All that is required is some rationalization that their transgression serves a worthy end. Such rationalizations are never lacking. Prisons are full of people who can dilate at great length on why they were justified in committing their crimes or why they were framed.
Psychological projection was described by Sigmund Freud as an immature “defense mechanism in which a person unconsciously rejects his or her own unacceptable attributes by ascribing them to objects or persons in the outside world.” (Sigmund Freud, Case Histories II, p. 132) So it is that Democracy for America, the progressive organizational arm of the Democrat Party, agitating their voting constituents against the rest of the country, has sent out a memo, accusing Republicans of waging a War on Christmas – “Well, this year there is a real ‘War on Christmas;’ and it’s not being waged by the ACLU or the
President Barack Obama never even once visited the iconic Nelson Mandela while he was still alive, but count on him hogging all the limelight he can at the freedom hero’s funeral. It is a matter of public record that Obama ignored Mr. Mandela during all four years of his first term as president. Michelle Obama briefly visited Mandela during her 2011 South African trip before going on safari with her two daughters. During Obama’s June 2013 South African trip, Obama “deferred” to the family of an ailing Mandela by not visiting Mandela at his sick bed. Does anyone notice how Obama excels at latching
Ugh! The falling-fast-in-popularity-polls Barack Hussein Obama is diving for cover under the cassock of Pope Francis, and it’s going to require a take-no-prisoners Catholic League president like Bill Donohue to drag him back out. Obama’s M.O. for hiding under Francis skirts? ‘The Artful Dodger of the White House’ counts on people thinking that If the pope can be a Marxist, then the Marxist Fundamental Transformation of America can’t be all bad. The big difference here is that no one, not the mainstream media or the talking heads jumped on the man they call Obama when he ran for the presidency back in
The House Republican leadership with its Dec. 3 vote to extend the ban on “undetectable” guns proved again it excels at political cowardice and betrayal of conservatives. Do not bother looking for the roll call of the yeas and nays on the vote, the GOP leaders, working with Democrats, suspended the rules and passed the measure with a voice vote—with maybe 15 actual congressmen on the House floor. In another profile in cowardice, Republicans put up Rep. J. Howard Coble (R.-N.C) to sponsor the bill, H.R. 3626. The 82-year-old congressman announced his retirement a month ago, so let’s just say he took
In a world where the New York Times can posit that the ‘Knockout Game’ Trend has no import—and gets away with it—no one can know the future, but with the way things are going it is only commonsense to worry your way into trying to do something about it. People old enough to remember 70 years of Communism in the Soviet Union and its satellites before communism made its hurried move for a safe North America landing, stand their ground against the misery of Marxism planned for America by President Barack Obama. But young people, who now over populate the ‘Me
In 1995, a book written by a little known community organizer was released. Dreams From My Father is a ‘Fairytale for Adults’, many of whom swallowed it hook, line and sinker. In 2013, a book written by Jane Sutcliffe, entitled Barack Obama, making the claim that white Americans are racists, made it to required reading status at Bluffview Elementary School in Dupo, Ill. The book Barack Obama is a ‘Fairytale for Children’, many of whose imaginations are occupied elsewhere. That’s because the actual timing of Sutcliffe’s Barack Obama as a Grade 4 must-read is way off. Children in the Grade 4 age group—thousands
Britain’s Court of Appeal upheld a ban of a radio ad this week that had initially been banned by the then Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt and the Radio Advertising Clearance Centre on the grounds that it was directed toward a political end. Media political advertising is not permitted in the UK. The ad, by Christian Community Partnership (CCP), asked people to identify if they had experienced discrimination in the workplace as a result of their faith. CCP publishes several magazines as well as owning Premier Christian Radio, the national broadcaster that was to carry the commercial.
More young men in California rise in pitch at the end of their sentences when talking, new research shows. This process is known as "uptalk" or "valleygirl speak" and has in the past been associated with young females, typically from California or Australia.But now a team says that this way of speaking is becoming more frequent among men.The findings were presented at the Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in California. "We found use of uptalk in all of our speakers, despite their diverse backgrounds in socioeconomic status, ethnicity, bilingualism and gender," said Amanda Ritchart, a linguist at the University of
How do you get your arms around the catastrophe known as Obamacare? Is it even possible? At this point, I’m not sure it is. The list of individual disasters which threaten to ruin one-sixth of the U.S. economy and what has been, up until now, the best healthcare system in the world is exhaustive, and exhausting. The examples I will identify here barely scratch the surface. First but by no means foremost, we have the supposedly new and improved HealthCare.gov. Except it’s not, even the visible part. Stories still abound of people still failing to get in or to get through the enrollment
The question all week long was this: Who are you going to believe, an illegal alien or the president of the United States of America? Obviously, if it’s a president who once went by an alias, Barry Soetoro, you go with Uncle Omar, 100 percent, no questions asked. And so it was that the White House finally admitted to another, uh, misstatement — despite previous denials, Barack/Barry did sleep on his beloved Uncle Omar’s couch in Cambridge when he first moved here to attend Harvard Law School (speaking of which, we’re still waiting to see the president’s grades and his LSAT scores). But the
DAVID CORN: I saw a president who remains frustrated with the political-media culture that he has to work within, and that he´s looking to rally people, students here, and supporters, and people within the media. CHRIS MATTHEWS: But David Corn, you skeptic. He came to us today. He came amongst us. CORN: He´s trying to rally people behind this vision that he´s been promoting for a couple years. FINEMAN: By the way, he did it the end here, today, Chris, not by defending specifics, but by explaining why he´s in the game to begin with. And I don´t know about you, he´s
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
The most curious thing of all about the November jobs report released on Friday was the huge drop in the unemployment rate — and the fact that the Labor Department chose not to disclose that the data going into that figure are under investigation for falsification. On Nov. 19, I broke the news in my column that the Census Bureau, which collects data that goes into the jobless rate on behalf of Labor, had caught one of its enumerators fabricating interviews in 2010. The culprit said back then (and to me during an interview) that he was told to do so by
