On the killing of children.

April 24, 2016

Mircea Popescu often criticizes Christianity as being some socialist thing from which all the evils of the fiat world originated. If I’m to use most churches as an example, I can’t even disagree; they covet other people’s money, and that’s why they teach a populist message — the kind that gets meat in the seats. More followers means more tax-deductible donations. But the real Gospel isn’t at all socialist, and it agrees with Mircea more often than not. The first in what will be an ongoing series of comparisons between the two is in this case: on the killing of children.

Mircea Popescu says:

I want the right to kill any children or I won’t have any. That’s that.

And:

Pretty soon it’s, “we’re too cool for our children to be killed off like the worthless ******** they are.”

And:

This is the required balance to this scheme. Yes, we kill all idiot children without any regard to the ever rising blood level on the floor or the tears of their mothers.

The Bible says, in Deuteronomy 21:

18 “If a man has a stubborn and rebellious son who will not obey the voice of his father or the voice of his mother, and who, when they have chastened him, will not heed them, 19 then his father and his mother shall take hold of him and bring him out to the elders of his city, to the gate of his city. 20 And they shall say to the elders of his city, ‘This son of ours is stubborn and rebellious; he will not obey our voice; he is a glutton and a drunkard.’ 21 Then all the men of his city shall stone him to death with stones; so you shall put away the evil from among you, and all Israel shall hear and fear.

So there you have it. Mircea wants the right to kill children, and The Bible says he should have exactly that right! A godly kingdom would enforce this as law. A child may be put to death simply for not obeying the voice of his parents. Mircea remarks that the lack of this practice is why “the west” sucks:

However – it turns out high infant mortality is absolutely necessary for males to even consider starting a family. If there’s no natural selection going on in the litter, the task of extracting unworthy worms from the wailing woman’s clutches to bang their head against a rock is just too damned demanding and ultimately not worth the hassle.
Which is part and parcel of why today’s west utterly sucks : most of the walkers should have been dead before puberty.

That’s where he seems to diverge from the Gospel, in that it’s unlikely for a child to be both prepubescent and also a drunkard. The Bible makes it sound like the disobedient son is at least old enough to have developed a drinking problem. But it doesn’t specify an age, and for that reason alone, nobody should speculate otherwise; so I won’t.

I’ve selected in this case, what is probably one of the toughest group of verses for an aspiring Christian to accept as true. Even the notion that the earth is a little older than six-thousand years is an easier sell. To say that killing children isn’t only not wrong, but that it is actually necessary, strikes at the heart of the think-of-the-children cancer of a mindset — that odorous notion festering in pockets of busybody old hags who haven’t been beaten enough. Protection of children is why there’s all sorts of restrictions on when and how you can sell alcohol,i when and how you can gamble, and all manner of other absolutely senseless impediments on adults having a good time.

The wicked exchange light and dark; they call good bad and they call bad good.ii It comes as no surprise that the very Biblical practice of killing inferior children for the betterment of society is called evil by the western governments. They are surely “wise in their own eyes” : what with their congress and voting booths; changing morality with the shifting sentiments of the majority. In this case, they fail to recognize that it is actually society that needs to be protected against children. Fail to weed out the bad ones and guess what? They grow up to become the next set of idiots running amok pretending like they run the place, meanwhile misallocating resources left and right and generally grinding the economy to an insufferable halt.

  1. Here in Connecticut, package stores can’t sell booze after nine, and until recently they couldn’t even be open for business on Sundays!
  2. Isaiah 5:

    20 Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
    Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness;
    Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
    21 Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes,
    And prudent in their own sight!
