lebensunwertes leben

Yesterday one of our readers from Germany took me to task for yesterday’s post, “Namaste”, concerned that my urgings that we should look for and address the Divine spark in our adversaries might be interpreted by some to mean that we should back off on the intensity of our attack.

No, no, no… this is not what I meant at all.

If anything, my call was—and is—for a more surgical and strategic approach, an arguably more intense attack, on the forces of evil which dominate our nation’s interlinked “news & entertainment”, “education”, “law enforcement”, “justice”, and “corrections” industries.

In my view, the American system of industrial-strength social control and economic exploitation is the mature embodiment of design concepts pioneered eighty years ago by the likes of Reichsführer SS Heinrich Himmler and Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels, among others.

Put more bluntly, we’ve out-nazied the Nazis, and most Americans don’t even realize it.

In the face of all evidence to the contrary, we cling to the comfort of our “Land of the Free” mythology while our freedoms are being gradually and systematically eroded away with our passive assent. We do not sound the alarm because, in part, we have failed to learn from a history obfuscated by other myths promulgated by certain powerful political interests. For example, most people do not realize that the notorious “extermination camps” in WWII Europe were established with the primary purpose of being slave labor camps. Yes, hundreds of thousands died in the camps, but many more thousands were imprisoned and slaved there. I wonder if there wouldn’t be a greater outcry about America’s growing prison-industrial complex if more of our citizens understood its pedigree?

I wonder if the system’s treatment of so many young people like Blade Reed as “throw-away kids” wouldn’t be more widely and more vociferously condemned if people recognized its similarity to the Nazi concept of Lebensunwertes Leben (“life unworthy of life”), which was used to imprison, sterilize, and euthanize people who were labeled criminal, degenerate, dissident, feeble-minded, homosexual, idle, insane, weak, etc., thereby eliminating them from the chain of heredity? If more people recognized this connection, even law-and-order types would not be so quick to accept children being charged, prosecuted, and imprisoned as adults—sometimes for life without the possibility of parole—which is our way of saying that some kids’ lives are “unworthy of life.”

When he was a young man before the war, one of my mentors was a member of a delegation of young Christians who had secured, through the intercession of a couple of Hitler’s close friends, an audience with Heinrich Himmler. They were attempting to affect a change of heart in the Reichsführer, an effort doomed from the start. They had not done their homework. They were too full of themselves and their own fervor. They did not appreciate the depths of hatred that Himmler harbored for Christianity, that their earnest pleas would be dismissed out of hand. If they had been a group of young Germanic pagans espousing Aryan ideals, they might have gotten Himmler to listen. They might have been able to touch the Divine spark that, yes, even resided in the Reichsführer’s black heart. But all they got for their troubles was Himmler’s piercing, burning, hateful stare.

If we are to marshal forces for change, we must understand precisely where to concentrate our resources in time and space, where to strike and why. Such targeting requires a thorough knowledge of our adversaries, their strengths, weaknesses, motives, and desires. And it requires sincere respect and empathy from us. Otherwise we will miss the mark and change will remain a vague and hopeless dream.

    may someone give me a address for blade reed i like to write to the poor kid thats being abused physical, sexual, mentally, emotionally and health wise even may be spirritual. some people go against God when there being treated abusive and going thru hell. he don’t deserve this treatment and needs help. If i was a correctional officer, i won’t allow other guards hurting him way they are and other inmates like men with him without a fight to defend blade. i promise you that. STOP ABUSING BLADE AND JUST RELEASE HIM TO FAMILY OR BOYS TOWN FOR A LOVING ADOPTION FAMILY AND GET SPECIAL TREATMENT FOR HIS DISABILITY.. I can relate to him like been abused self various ways. bad self esteem, confidence, suicidal, learning disability even. I wanna encourag him let him there others who supports and care for him and likes to be a friend. I Wanna be friend, encourager, person who believes supports him loves himas well and praying. Hes not a bad kid. HE IS A GOOD KID If the cops and judge prosecutor wants to argue with me so beat it. Not afraid of them. STANDING UP FOR JUSTICE IS WHAT BLADE NEEDS. I pity a fool who messes with blade in anyways, to say he is adult thats b.s. He is a kid now. Mind of 8 year old, thats sad as it is. But we need to be positive say hes a great kid, and he can do his best in things.

    Beside the topic, there are news from Florida “Judge orders shackles removed from Christian Fernandez” (I don’t want to call it good news, but it’s a step ahead)

    I think how we will loose our freedom is by giving away ourselves by voting for politicians who promise us things we can’t afford and then using the ever growing government to control and micro manage our lives. They will also use the technology we love against us. GPS cell phones track our every move, the FBI has now asked for more powerful technology to monitor what sites you visit on the Internet and Homeland Security and many police departments now want unmanned surveillance drones flying over our cities. Here’s a thought on our nature, we ask why didn’t 12 year old Paul Henry flee or stop Colt Lundy? Why did a civilized, educated German people freely elect Adolph Hitler and the Nazis into power and why do we keep electing idiots, both Republicans and Democrats in the U.S.? I think we are more like the deer in the headlights than we care to admit.
