Massacres Reveal the Lowest Human Instincts
Ramon Arias | June 20, 2016
A massacre anywhere in the world, and throughout history, reminds us of the evil in human nature, period. The ideological or mental reasons may vary, but the result is the same. The world has also suffered mass murder by the elimination of undesired segments of society; this is known as social engineering.
The overwhelming majority of media attention cannot be trusted in their assessment of mass killings; the same goes for politicians, or of those who have a misguided understanding of the philosophical motives of the perpetrators. The most disgusting thing that happens in these horrific attacks is when the ideological left and humanists use each tragedy to promote their agenda to have more control over society in the name of their feigned compassion, supposedly because of their concern to provide more security for all. The wolves clothed with sheepskins are always on the prowl, continually relying on the population’s ignorance and hoping they never get unmasked.
While many foresee the collapse of Western Civilization as the outcome of the social breakdown, and the renewed rise of an old opposing worldview, such as “radical Islam,” let us not lose sight that the slaughter of humans is part of other cultures as well.
We don’t have to go too far back into history to know of the horrors of mass murder. The following individuals, from western and none western nations, had many things in common, even though they, apparently, had different ideologies the result was, and still is, the same: Vladimir Lenin, Joseph Stalin, Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini, Mao Zedong, Pol Pot, and Margaret Sanger. What was their commonality? Mass murders! With the exception of two, the others followed the ideological teachings of Karl Marx, who promoted that the way to a social paradise was through central planning and mass murder of the undesirables or misfits who reject their plan for creating “utopia.” Even though Hitler and Mussolini fought against Communism, their political end was still the same as the others. Most people are misguided in thinking only about the atrocities of Hitler’s Nazi Holocaust; the greater mass killings in the socialist and communist nations are largely overlooked.
The combined mass murders of over 100 million perpetrated by Stalin, Hitler, and Zedong, don’t even come close to the vision of the greatest mass murderer of all, Margaret Sanger (1879-1966), founder of the infamous Planned Parenthood. The sexual revolution was Sanger’s battle cry; with the goal to destroy biblical morality, she published the newspaper Woman Rebel, and the motto was “No Gods, no Masters.”
"The most merciful thing that the large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it." 1
"Before eugenicists and others who are laboring for racial betterment can succeed, they must first clear the way for Birth Control. Like the advocates of Birth Control, the eugenicists, for instance, are seeking to assist the race toward the elimination of the unfit. Both are seeking a single end but they lay emphasis upon different methods. …" 2
Sanger’s ideas for the destruction of the most defenseless of humans in the U.S., since its enactment in 1973, is approaching the sixty million mark. At the moment of this writing, this year alone has seen over half a million lose their lives by the choice of the mother or both parents. The massacre of babies in their mother’s, womb worldwide since 1980, exceeds one billion four hundred million and counting. 3
The terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, shocked the nation and classified the barbaric actions as “evil.” The definition was and continues to be correct; the evil nature of the human heart and actions will never be embraced indefinitely and cannot be defined in any other way but by the darkest of evil actions. The horrendous actions of evil get diluted when political agendas come into conflict, and they immediately create a distraction to redirect people’s attention to something else, such as blaming guns.
Are you aware that all the mass shootings take place in gun-free zones? Do you know how many law-abiding citizens carry gun permits in the U.S.A.? There are approximately 300 million arms in the hands of responsible citizens; those numbers are according to the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. Do you know how many states allow concealed handguns in a bar? John Lott, who is the founder and president of the Crime Prevention Research Center, and Sean Hannity, posted the following information:
“40 states allow concealed handguns in a bar. Yet, despite people being able to carry in states that allow people to carry in bars and 13 million permit holders nationwide, there are no examples offered of drunken patrons with permits pulling out their guns and shooting others. Nor are there any examples with sober permit holders. All 50 states allow people to carry in establishments that earn less than 50 percent of revenue from alcohol allow guns to be carried there. Again, there are no examples offered of drunk or sober patrons with permits pulling out their guns and shooting others.” 4
The law-abiding citizens, even in bars that allow them to carry guns are not mass killing nor are they on a shooting spree across the nation in spite of the hundreds of millions of different weapons they own. These people are trained and know the value and purpose of the Second Amendment, which is a far cry from only hunting Bambi. Historically, dictators and socialists, like most European nations, prefer unarmed citizens because that makes them much easier to dominate and they can keep them under their grip.
America’s biggest problem, which will bring her down in time, is not so much the evil intentions of those who hate her as much as her distance from her biblical foundation. John Quincy Adams, Sixth President of the United States, in letters to his son, wrote:
“The law given from Sinai was a civil and municipal as well as a moral and religious code; it contained many statutes . . . of universal application-laws essential to the existence of men in society, and most of which have been enacted by every nation which ever professed any code of laws.” 5
“There are three points of doctrine the belief of which forms the foundation of all morality. The first is the existence of God; the second is the immortality of the human soul; and the third is a future state of rewards and punishments. Suppose it possible for a man to disbelieve either of these three articles of faith and that man will have no conscience, he will have no other law than that of the tiger or the shark. The laws of man may bind him in chains or may put him to death, but they never can make him wise, virtuous, or happy.” 6
Charles Carroll of Carrollton, Signer of the Declaration of Independence, wrote in a letter to James McHenry:
“Without morals a republic cannot subsist any length of time; they therefore who are decrying the Christian religion, whose morality is so sublime & pure, [and] which denounces against the wicked eternal misery, and [which] insured to the good eternal happiness, are undermining the solid foundation of morals, the best security for the duration of free governments.” 7
Our only meaningful hope and choice for America to regain her sanity is to embrace once again the only source of knowledge that can destroy evil in the human heart, mind, and actions: the biblical foundation and its principles. It is also our only effective weapon to restrain or defeat the enemy. You don’t have to believe me! Read the unadulterated American history and learn of God’s deliverance.
