The progressive axis
By Michael Moriarty
Nazi Germany was the undisputed leader of the 20th century Axis, that evil triumvirate of the Third Reich, Fascist Italy and Imperial Japan.
What brought them together?
Their mutual hatred of freedom and the massive realities of life.
Communism, in the form of Stalin's Soviet Russia, was a brief comrade of the Axis … but … well, Hitler mistakenly believed that there was a pure distinction between his beloved, German National Socialism and Marxism.
Not really. They both have proved to be tyrannically homicidal.
Freedom is a very messy, seemingly disorganized phenomenon. Amidst such disorganization and the notion of human equality, America was born, became mature following the Civil War of 1861-1865 and began to lead the entire human race as the nation best exemplifying Man's more realistic hopes for the future.
A prelude, a preview of coming attractions, was offered up to us during World War II. The "perverse science," as Winston Churchill described Eugenics, was the driving force beneath Adolf Hitler's vision of a Nazi New World Order. The totalitarian nature of Italian Fascism was an inevitable partner in Hitler's dreams. The suicidal nature of Kamikaze, Imperial Japan fell neatly into place as the three of these villainous nations, Nazi Germany, Fascist Italy and Imperial Japan, convinced one another that they could rule the world together. As I've already mentioned, Joseph Stalin's Russia was a temporary fourth in this diabolical Bridge game.
Leave it to the Third Millennium to see versions of all four of these nightmares join together within the United States of America and call itself the Progressive Movement. Progressives, having wedded both Eugenics and Marxism together, avoid the falling out that happened between Hitler and Stalin. The Italian Fascist ingredient can literally be seen in the warlike, but equally Progressive American Republican such as the Bush family and Rudolph Giuliani.
Ironically, Islam itself fills in the third part of this reborn Axis. Islam is the equivalent of Kamikaze Imperial Japan. If anything weds all three of these, it is their increasingly obsessive love for Death as the major solution for all of Man's problems. Abortion, of course, is highest on the list, then comes the increasingly fashionable euthanasia, helping the questionably alive human beings to their deaths, as in recent stories out of storm-torn New Orleans. And finally, that greatest of policy campaigns, the United Nations' purposeful neglect of death and dying from ethnic cleansings in Africa.
That corner of Islamic religion that assures the Muslim a place in heaven for having suicidally murdered an infidel … well … you can almost see the Japanese heroes flying into the sides of American ships in the Pacific, in the same way Osama bin Laden's Kamikaze Muslims flew into the sides of the Twin Towers.
Basically, it's death as a solution to all our problems.
A lust for irresponsibility is what really explains the worldwide, Progressive appeal and record-breaking popularity of abortion. 1940's European anti-Semitism and 3rd Millennium human irresponsibility, genocide and abortion mirror one another. If Europe in the 1940's can be convinced of the inhumanity of some human beings and 6 million Jews can be slaughtered because of those lies, why be surprised when the same brand of scientists convinces the free world that a fetus is not really human … yet?
In America, these Progressive intellectual supremacists haven't had the problems the Nazis had in Europe. Those Americans run the Supreme Court, although that judicial body's definition of what constitutes human life was unquestionably "New Law." There was no, and still is no hope of remedy without a Constitutional Amendment. So far, no successful effort to curb the Supreme Court's homicidal arrogance has been offered.
Slavery thrived in America for 89 years, genocide in Europe for about 10 years and legalized worldwide abortion for over 40 years. Will the Progressive New World Order keep abortion legal for even longer than the 89 years that slavery was legal in the United States?
What a thought!
If you are a Progressive, however, abortion and euthanasia are mankind's sanest choices. Why?
We're overpopulated, that's why, say the Progressives. And progress, of course, demands fewer and fewer, but smarter and smarter people!
That's obvious … to a Progressive, at any rate.
Dreams of a superhuman race!
Wasn't that Hitler's 1000 year plan?
Ironically, I see the so-called higher intelligences of the Progressive Movement as those humans most capable of fooling themselves. If they can rationalize murder, they can justify anything.
Scientific distinctions are offered to convince us of why a fetus is not a human being until at least the third trimester, and sometimes not even then. Similar claims were made by Nazi scientists about fully mature Jews, gypsies and homosexuals. Much of Europe bought those distinctions.
One reason given was that all the money hidden away by the Jews would get back into circulation. Similarly, no one has to spend any money on an aborted child.
Greed and murder, one of the oldest pas de deux in history, have led the human race into the hell of the Progressive Third Millennium.
Approaching us is an era of such personal irresponsibility that no other period of anarchy could compare with it. The Progressive leadership will be ruthless, of course; and a profoundly childish human race will bring such governing ruthlessness upon itself.
Homicidal solutions to the problems of life, such as abortion, always, and I repeat, always end in suicidal solutions within a bunker like Adolf Hitler's or in the eternal disgrace of lives led like those of Stalin, Mao Tse Tung and Pol Pot.
