About the Book…
As Jamie Glasov revealed in his book, United in Hate, the central defining feature of the Leftist Utopian and the dictators she admires is a commitment to what I’ve come to term as “The Death Cult.” This disease of the mind—or more properly, the soul—is fundamentally a desire for self-annihilation projected outward onto the world at large. It is at once a love of self and, at the same time, a perverse hatred of self. Born from the rejection of God and the refusal to accept His right to rule or to judge, the Leftist flings herself headlong into a dance with death, even to the point of celebrating genocide in the belief that this will be necessary to cleanse the world of the stain of flawed human existence.
Nowhere is this more clearly seen than in the Leftist’s fascination with eugenics. Eugenics is at its heart, an attempt to limit the reproductive rights of other individuals the Leftist deems “undesirable,” based upon criteria she deems “problematic” and which she seeks to resolve. Thus, Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood and an avowed racist once wrote, “It is a vicious cycle; ignorance breeds poverty and poverty breeds ignorance. There is only one cure for both, and that is to stop breeding these things. Stop bringing to birth children whose inheritance cannot be one of health or intelligence. Stop bringing into the world children whose parents cannot provide for them. Herein lies the key of civilization. For upon the foundation of an enlightened and voluntary motherhood shall a future civilization emerge.”
That both ignorance and poverty can be resolved through education and free-enterprise, and that both can be encouraged by quickening the resilient spirit of man toward his own self-interest never evidently crossed Sanger’s mind. Nor does she recognize the unique and special contribution both the poor and the disabled have to offer, in teaching the rest of us a measure of compassion and understanding that does not begin with viewing other people as “problems” for her to solve.
But eugenics is only one facet of this dark diamond. Carefully joined to it is the principle of euthanasia—the good death—which is also cast in terms of “not being a burden on others.” One wonders how much distance there is from encouraging the older generation to pass on to requiring it as a service beneficial to society—or at the very least as a way to avoid paying exorbitant healthcare costs.
And all of this fits in very well with the Malthusian proposition of overpopulation—a concept proven demonstrably false time and time again, and yet which rears its ugly head not only among the eugenics and euthanasia crowd, but also among the environmentalists and the animal rights groups.
Always, man is the problem. A virus or a parasite upon the earth that must needs be dealt with through selective culling of the herd. Would that they would start with themselves, and leave the rest of us in peace!
But truthfully speaking, we could construct a utopia on earth if it weren’t for man. The chief error of the utopian liberal is the failure to recognize that the problems caused by mankind are systemic to man’s nature as a fallen creature. The liberal idealist believes man’s problems are “out there,” amongst the choices and actions committed by “other people,” and can be resolved by fixing those other people “out there,” through either regulation or the aforementioned culling. Never does it cross her mind that the problems within man lie within her own fallen heart as well, and that the true route to a perfect world is not through regulation or culling, but through the radical transformation of her character—what evangelicals call being “born again.”
I maintain that the Leftist ideology remains diametrically opposed to the purposes of God as well as to the good of man—even to the Leftist herself—precisely because of this failure to recognize the heart of the problem, which naturally leads to a failure to comprehend the correct nature of the cure. For this reason, there can never be anything but eternal hostility between those who believe in God and support the Constitution of this nation as our Founding Fathers envisioned it, and those who would see it follow the course of modern, liberal ideology. One or the other must win, for they cannot peacefully coexist any more than death can coexist with life.
