Genocide is a historical fact. It has been used at one time or another by most countries. The Mongols, Arabs, and Romans all have blood on their hands.
But it is in the 20th century that genocide becomes more refined and efficient, and deaths number into the millions.
In WW1 Turkey eliminates 1.5 million Armenians. The Japanese manage to eliminate 20 million Chinese leading up to WWII, The Russians kill some 60 million of their own people, and the Chinese communists kill some 76 million of their own people. Of course we cannot forget Hitler’s Germany killing some 21 million innocents in concentration camps.
Hitler’s Third Reich stands out because Germany was brought to a public trial for their atrocities. The world brought Moral judgement against those responsible. And that is the Crux of the matter.
The word “Moral.” The allies thought they were righteous enough to judge on moral grounds. And judge they did. Most of the so called perpetrators were executed and others given lengthy prison terms.
In 1946 the chief prosecutor of the Nuremberg trials, Robert H Jackson, made the following statement. “The former high station of these defendants, the notoriety of their acts, and the adaptability of their conduct to provide retaliation make it hard to distinguish the demand for a just and measured retribution, and the unthinking cry for vengeance which arise from the anguish of war. It is our task so far as humanly possible to draw the line between the two. We must never forget that the record on which we judge these defendants today is the record on which history will judge us tomorrow.”
One must ask the question, will the same standards of justice and morality be applied to America for the genocide of over 50 million innocents through the process of state approved abortion?
Will we be the defendants at the next “Nuremberg” trials? What retribution would we face from the anguish of 50 million innocents denied the right to be born and make their mark among the rest of us, and do they cry for vengeance?
If they do, they would certainly have the right. And the price these souls might exact is not one we would have a defense for. What defense might we prepare if we are judged by the same standards as the Third Reich? And why should we receive a lesser condemnation?
History will judge us. And why would we not expect to be held to the same standards as we held others at the Nuremberg Trials?
Our enemies can field larger armies and take much greater casualties than we can on the battlefield. Despite all our great technologies war is still fought with numbers being a huge strategic advantage. China has some 30 million single men who will never have a wife thanks to abortion that would make a huge expendable army. India has much the same. Muslims are invading Europe with superior numbers and thanks to abortion and birth control Europeans do not have enough young men to repel the invaders. America is facing aliens with far superior numbers on our own border.
Birth control and abortion have severely diminished the west’s ability to lead the free world. It is unknown how many potentially great minds have been destroyed but certainly many.
Would this be the judgement of tomorrow: will history judge us by what the Nuremberg chief prosecutor, Robert Jackson, was referring to in his lone and profound statement to the world?
