The authors of a new book on how we can save our century point out that the culture of death that allows abortion also leads to genocide.
Suzanne Hamner has an interesting piece over at BarbWire about the book, which we have reproduced in part. A link to the full article is included.
Would you say that mankind is progressing, growing wiser with the passing of time and getting better or would you say that mankind is regressing, growing ever more destructive with the passing of time and becoming worse than in previous historical times?
If you said the latter, you would be in agreement with the authors of “The Race to Save Our Century: Five Core Principles to Promote Peace, Freedom, and a Culture Of Life,” John Zmirak and Jason Jones.
In their book, Zmirak and Jones points out that the last 100 years were the deadliest in human history with 133 million individuals who were slaughtered through “democide” or death by government.
According to the two co-authors, this next century could be even deadlier.
Zmirak and Jones laid out the reasons for the triumph of totalitarianism full of eugenics, genocide and total war over the principles of humane civilization in the 20th century to CBN News.
According to the co-authors, it came about “because modern secular philosophy had undermined the core principles of the moral law that the Judeo-Christian civilization had relied upon for centuries.”
Zmirak contended this allowed a “culture of death to flourish” resulting in a century of governments slaughtering their own citizens.
Jones warned that Americans should not think their country too civilized and immune from the threat of the barbarism that is democide. He suggested that Americans should consider how average individuals around them have killed America’s most vulnerable and innocent citizens through abortion.
“Abortion I would say is the rock foundation of the culture of death,” Jones said.
Jones asserts that violence in the womb cannot help but spread out beyond the womb.
Co-author, Jason Jones tells CBN, “If we don’t see full legal protection for the human person, from the moment of biological beginning to natural death, you can expect your children or grandchildren to die in the gulag and die in the concentration camp.”
Jones and Zmirak believe that the same culture of death that leads to abortion also leads to, genocide, ethnic cleansing, and governments murdering their own citizens.
In their book, the authors point out that there are several basic principles for saving our century beginning with: accepting the infinite dignity and worth of every human person.
A great visual of just how many babies have been slaughtered by abortion is shown in the Life Dynamics film, Millions Dead:
What will our world look like if we fail to turn back this tide?
