…from the quill of Antisthenes the Younger
From time to time media, not having anything better to do, ‘do’ an item on children forced to work, provide sexual services, fight or some combination thereof. The usual activistas drop crocodile tears in front of the cameras and ask for more money. Needless to say, the subject of Islam, communism or socialism is usually avoided; and if slightly touched, it is immediately compensated for by a tear-jerking item about shocking, absolutely shocking conditions in some factory in India owned by a US ‘led’ multinational company. Oh, hypocrisy, thou name is socialism!
I’m not suggesting that children in the clutches of Communist Chinese entrepreneurs, Taliban, Boko Haram and other progressives are leading charmed lives and do not need help.
However, I feel that if, for example all those twits who joined Michelle Obama’s #saveour girls, or whatever it was, campaign donated instead $5 towards hiring a few ( a hundred or so) mercenaries, the girls would be a long time home. By the way, the benefits of utilising free-lancers are the obvious. They are much, much cheaper than average top heavy, politically correct UN armed expedition, are paid by the results, do not care about medial hyenas and do not feel obliged to impose democracy on anybody.
Of course, the hash tag scams followers do not care about results; what matters to them are the touchy-feely intentions fertilising their narcissism. The scam organisers, like that infamous Michelle, know what they are doing – they are castrating the West.
In the meantime, whether it is in Africa, Middle East, Asia or South America sooner or later those children are proudly clutching ubiquitous Kalashnikovs, Russia’s lasting contribution to the advancement of the human race, and declaim “Kill the whitey” or similar progressive slogans. In ten years time those no longer innocent babies will be hardened, ruthless, ideologically motivated and dedicated killers. Victims, perhaps, in the sense the boys cutting their milk teeth as Hitlerjugend, ended their lives at Stalingrad or Berlin, but first massacring hundred of thousands of people as feared and admired SS. The Left, of course, never felt sorry for them; their socialism was of marginally different colour.
Our children will be seriously, possibly fatally disadvantaged in the forthcoming struggle. On our side we have ubiquitous, plastic and guaranteed harmless playground equipment, identical from pole to pole (diversity be damned) over protective (helicopter) parents, out of any moral restraint lawyers, child protection industry parasites, ever ready to remove a (non-Aboriginal, of course) child from the parents, thus reinforcing the Nurse Ratched‘s (a.k.a Nanny State), emasculating, de-feminising and generally enfeebling nest.
One of many examples; via Mark Steyn:
“…When you shrink from punishing the bullies (as our schools do), when you pursue phantom enemies (as our “human rights” nomenklatura do), when you use the victims as a pretext for ideological advancement (as the Ontario government is doing), all that’s left is the creepy, soft totalitarian, collectivized, state-enforced, glassy-eyed homogeneity of “uniting to celebrate diversity” (in Peggy Nash’s words). So Canada will have GSAs from Niagara to Nunavut; and for the lonely and unsocial, the lumpy and awkward, real bullying will proceed undisturbed in the shadows; and ideologically-compliant faux-bullying will explode, as a generation of children is conscripted into a youth corps of eternal victimhood, alert to every slight, however footling. In New York, where children are bullied with gay abandon, the school board recently proposed banning from its tests 50 hurtful, discriminatory words such as “religious holidays,” “birthdays” and “cigarettes.” From such an environment come a cowed, pliant herd and a cadre of professional grievance-mongers, but not a lot of functioning, freeborn citizens. “
All of this inevitably leads to physical, mental and especially moral weakness of the forthcoming generation, the one about to face one of the greatest challenges civilisations had to face thus far.
