What Do The Deathwishers Want?

To put it bluntly: in earlier times, it was easier to control one million people than to physically kill one million people; today, it is infinitely easier to kill one million people than to control one million people.
~Zbigniew Brzezinski

In 1927, in Buck vs. Bell, the US Supreme Court, in a decision by Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, ruled that the forced sterilization program of the State of Virginia was Constitutional. In his written decision, Holmes wrote, “It is better for all the world, if instead of waiting to execute degenerate offspring for crime, or to let them starve for their imbecility, society can prevent those who are manifestly unfit from continuing their kind.”

By the 1920’s, Rockefeller, Carnegie and other vastly wealthy Americans embraced a Malthusian notion of what came to be called, “social Darwinism’ which justified their accumulation of vast fortune.

John D. Rockefeller III made Puerto Rico into a huge laboratory to test his ideas on mass population control beginning in the 1950’s. By 1965, an estimated 35% of Puerto Rico’s women of child-bearing age had been permanently sterilized.

The Brazilian government was shocked to find that an estimated 44% of all Brazilian women aged between 14 and 55 had been permanently sterilized. Most of the older women had been sterilized when the program started in the mid- 1970’s.

Among the 1973 founding members of David Rockefeller’s Trilateral Commission were Zbigniew Brzezinski, and a Georgia Governor and peanut farmer, James Earl “Jimmy” Carter, along with George H.W. Bush, Paul Volcker, later named by President Jimmy Carter as Federal Reserve chairman, and Alan Greenspan, then a Wall Street investment banker… Brzezinski had just written a book where he proposed the idea of “consolidation of American corporate and banking influence worldwide” via a series of regular closed-door policy meetings between the select business elites.

Domination of global agriculture trade was to be one of the central pillars of post-war Washington policy, along with domination of world oil markets and non-communist world defense sales. Henry Kissinger reportedly declared to journalist at the time, “If you control oil, you control nations. If you control food, you control people.”

There is a fine line between controlling a population and killing of large swaths of it, and today’s leaders of the species seem to have lost sight. The most recent quote is the first one, disclosed a few years ago by the former United States National Security Advisor, Brzezinski. It identifies the latest leap in the evolution of ambition burning through the humanity of the Deathwish Rich.

Debate: Is The Bible Corrupted?

“His problem is, he doesn’t believe that God still speaks.”

Religious Debates has been a category on this website for two years.

Watching debates, training that mark of an educated mind enumerated by Aristotle, is a good way to strengthen faith. Notable in this one is the fact that the Bible has undergone, and perhaps is still experiencing: change. What does this idea mean when it comes to the living God?

The Imagined World

In an article on my book’s website regarding Jean Baudrillard’s concept of simulacra I broach the topic of the decreasingly discernible divide between meditatively regulated imagination, and reality itself. Occasional Christian apologist and famed author of The Chronicles of Narnia, C.S. Lewis, noted the trend toward largely imagined worlds long before Baudrillard’s 1981 publication on simulacra. This afternoon I discovered the following quote from a 1940’s book review by Lewis. I thought I’d share.

I think that in an age when idolatry of human genius is one of our most insidious dangers Miss Sayers would have been prudent to stress more continuously than she does the fact that the analogy is merely an analogy. I am afraid that some vainglorious writers may be encouraged to forget that they are called “creative” only by a metaphor—that an unbridgeable gulf yawns between the human activity of re-combining elements from a pre-existing world and the Divine activity of first inventing, and then endowing with substantial existence, the elements themselves. All the “creative” artists of the human race cannot so much as summon up the phantasm of a single new primary colour or a single new dimension. It is one thing, having known many men, to “think of” one more man, Mr Pickwick; to “think of” man himself, of time and matter themselves, de novo, is an activity simply heterogeneous to any that we can conceive.

God: A Living Being

A study by the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life found that fully 60% of adult Americans believe that God is a person with whom people can have a relationship, while that figure climbs to seven-in-ten among Christian adults. These findings raise the question: if God really is a person, how does that work?

In other words if a person were God, in what ways would He or She be any different from everyone else. It turns out that there are a ton of ways a person could be incredibly different from “everyone else,” whatever that means. Watch the above video to check a few of them out.

Almighty God is a living man. ~Bob Marley & The Wailers
