A Catholic who follows Rome & the Magisterium. I'm against gay "marriage", abortion, embryonic stem cell research, euthanasia, human cloning. Altar girls, Communion in the hand, Eucharistic Ministers and "Protestant" music in the Church doesn't bother me at all. A proud American retired submarine sailor. Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

"War On The Weak"

Thats the title of a book I'm currently reading. It's a detailed history of the eugenics movement in this nation back at the start of the last century. Quite an eyeopener, IMHO.

Basically the proponents of eugenics were trying to purify & improve the national populace. This was attempted by laws forbidding miscegenation, statutes providing for mandatory sterilization of "undesirables", immigration screening for those with "problems" in their families. There might be more, right now I'm halfway through the 444 pages that comprise the tome.

It's no tinfoil hat creation either. Everything is well referenced and documented. I do mean E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G!

Reading it, I'm constantly seeing how some things never change.

It was all junk science. The proponents used half baked statistics, faulty methodology and personal bias to further their agenda. Kind of like what we've seen with the furor over man made global warming, lots of hype and hyperbole with damned little objectivity.

But there are other areas where I'm seeing similarities also. That would be in the mindset of "they're better off dead" used to justify the treatment of "undesirables".

One of the prime areas for "research" was in the family histories of epileptics, the insane, those who are physically handicapped from birth and a laundry list of other items including (I shit you not) compulsive masturbation and chronic unemployment.

Kind of what we see now when the unborn are screened for defects and then aborted (although a penchant for "pounding your pud" would be hard to discern in boys not yet born). I'm thinking specifically of Downs Syndrome and the like.

The response of the general public to all of this was extremely negative. So a lot of the legislation passed was done by stealth and then never enforced. Seems too many folk really valued human life. The key to combating this prolife attitude was felt to be education of the masses. That got run off the rails once Hitler's use of negative eugenic practices came to light. But the use of education in forwarding an agenda is similar to what we've seen over the years in the dehumanizing of the unborn.

Like I said, some things haven't changed a bit. Convince John & Joan Q. Public that they're not really dealing with humans and the problem of getting approval for sterilization or abortion is diminished.

Back then there was a greater awareness of the place of God in our lives. So in many ways eugenics never really stood a chance.

Today we don't have that awareness and often prolifers face an uphill battle.

Pardon me if this is rambling on, I'm just sorting through my thoughts about this book. Lots to think about, IMO.

In closing I'll quote Gianna Jessen, who survived a very late term attempt at saline abortion in 1977. She's now a well known advocate for the prolife movement. I found a great post about her over at Coming Home.

Here's the quote, "Ladies and gentlemen, there are things that you will only be able to learn by the weakest among us, and when you snuff them out, you are the one that loses.

The Lord looks after them, but you are the one that will suffer.

…and what arrogance, what absolute arrogance, and it has been an argument for so long in this human place that we live, that the stronger should dominate the weaker, should determine who lives or dies.

The arrogance of that. Don’t you realize that you can’t make your own heart beat?

Don’t you realize that all the power you think you possess, you really possess none of it?

It is the Mercy of God that sustains you, even when you hate Him."

Good read Chief!

Reading it, I'm constantly seeing how some things never change...I am beginning to see that more and more!

AMEN! AMEN! Eugenics didn't go away after Hitler. It just changed it's name. Most planned parenthood facilities are in the neighborhoods of those Margret Sanger called "human weeds".

The Will to Murder is ingrained in those who worship The Will to Power.

Keep it up Subvet! The more who know,the more who resist.

ignorant redneck said...

BTW--"cumpulsive maststurbation"--did they hate 14 year old boys, or what?

Subvet said...

Cookie, thanks!

Subvet said...

WHT, in my own case I attribute it to age. Live long enough and everything old is new again.

Subvet said...

IR, interestingly enough the author of this book is an apologist for Sanger. It's a head scratcher because he claims she wasn't a racist but surrounded herself with them in order to further her own agenda.

As for hating 14 year old boys, I think many of these clowns cited in the book grew up as the kids that had their lunch money taken from them on a regular basis.

Eugenics is being actively practiced in China. I remember an article several years ago by an American nurse, who asked a Chinese nurse about Down's syndrome kids growing up in China, since a lot of births there now, due to one child policy, are to older mothers. She had a lot of trouble in the translation and getting throught, and finally did. "We don't have that problem. They never leave the delivery room."

If you are reading War Against The Weak and like to investigate both abortion and eugenics, then I recommend the documentary film: Maafa21, which will show you things you never learned, I guarantee it. See trailer for Maafa21 here

Anonymous@ 11:16 PM, I'm not surprised. Since the days of Mao, China has put a very low value on human life. We can expect much the same mindset to start showing itself more boldly over here in the near future.

Anonymous at 2:45, I'll definetly check out Maafa21. I've heard a lot about it already and now my interest is really piqued. Thanks.

There's no doubt in my mind that the power of Satan on this earth is the reason for ideas like eugenics and abortion. Satan wants to destroy humanity and what better way than to convince humans to destroy their own children? Sick and depraved...and there are too many in our world who are easily manipulated into believing that what they are doing is for the "good of the world" when in fact the only one who benefits the destruction of God's children is Satan.

Mary Ellen, BINGO!
