Like Minds

I read a disturbing interview with Ruth Bader Ginsburg earlier this week. Here is a quote from it regarding her view of Roe v. Wade and it's implications:

Frankly I had thought that at the time Roe was decided, there was concern about population growth and particularly growth in populations that we don’t want to have too many of.
So that Roe was going to be then set up for Medicaid funding for abortion.
-Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg from this past Tuesday's article found here.

I wonder which parts of the population she believes we don't want too many of. I wonder if there are any other persons who held the philosophy, that "we don't want to have too many of" a certain population. Let's investigate.

"More children from the fit, less from the unfit -- that is the chief aim of birth control."
and
“The most merciful thing that a family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.”
-Margaret Sanger, racist and founder of Planned Parenthood - leading provider of abortions in our country.

"Under the guidance of the Reich, Europe would speedily have become unified. Once the Jewish poison had been eradicated, unification would have been an easy matter."
-Adolf Hitler, leader of the National Socialist Party (Nazi party) of Germany

"The ultimate aim for those 11 years during which I have been the Reichsfuehrer SS has been invariably the same: to create an order of good blood which is able to serve Germany"
-Heinrich Luitpold Himmler - Leader of Hilter's SS.

"Of the five identifiable steps by which the Nazis carried out the principle of "life unworthy of life," coercive sterilization was the first. There followed the killing of “impaired” children in hospitals; and then the killing of “impaired” adults, mostly collected from mental hospitals, in centers especially equipped with carbon monoxide gas. This project was extended (in the same killing centers) to “impaired” inmates of concentration and extermination camps and, finally, to mass killings in the extermination camps themselves."
-Robert Jay Lifton, historian and psychiatrist

I bet you before these people rose to power and promoted these atrocious crimes against humanity people would say things like "it will never get that bad" when confronted with the reality of where those philosophies were heading...kind of like here when people try to promote abortions, plan-B, homosexual "marriage", etc.

People don't realize that human nature always advances on ideals held by the community whether it is seeking intimacy with our Creator and living within His morality or the "ideals" of population control religious restrictions.

Pray, evangelize, and pray some more...and drink a nice cold one every now and then just to keep from being overcome with seriousness.

A cold one now and then is definetly a good idea, but the seriousness of this issue and the lack of character of this country's leadership is beyond frightening.

You know, I wonder what the ideals of our USA communities really are? I think the point is valid that "human nature always advances ideals held by the community" and for the most part I do believe that "ideals held by the community" are good, moral, God fearing ideals and truly, just like happened in Nazi Germany, the minority leadership has control of the direction and ultimately of the activities of the large portion of the population, who disagree with the direction.

But, the large portion of the population that disagrees is largely silent. Plus, the liberal media is stronger than anyone can imagine. Look at the media hype surrounding the Michael Jackson death. Compare the death of Elvis Presley and how that was handled to the MJ death and how that was handled, by the media. Huge difference. The power of the media is not to be underestimated. They are "in your face" constantly now and unfortunately people believe what they see on TV and read in the paper. The liberal media is bent on destroying Sarah Palin. Whether or not you like Palin, it is pretty safe to say that the liberal media has gone way off the deep end in how they treat her.

The people I talk to are largely middle class, mature adults in the business community. So maybe what I hear is typically slanted toward the conservative side but I am sure the section of the community that I hear from is very unhappy with the direction our leadership is taking us. This includes the liberals on the Supreme Court who are so unimpressive it is astonishing.

Will the "community" wake up and seak out leadership with character?

Pray, yes, the best thing we can do.

But stand up and be counted for your true ideals is much needed in the USA today as well.
