Witty bits from what I learned in the UK (13) [Vorbe de duh din ce am învăţat în UK]

Ever since Thomas Robert Malthus came up with his fatalist claim – that “the power of population is indefinitely greater than the power in the earth to produce subsistence for man” – many in Britain have been frightened by the specter of overpopulation.

Overcrowding (of England in particular, see here and here) is a ‘threat’ which many politicians, scientists, artists or others and fashionable thinkers in the UK often invoke, in order to draw attention upon them.

There’s no need to offer evidence of overcrowding (although some doubt it), as long as they can quote Malthus saying that “population, when unchecked, increases in a geometrical ratio”.

There’s a simplistic ideology (based on only apparently solid facts), claiming that “many people born = a bad thing,” while “fewer people born = a good thing.” But are things really that simple?

Is a healthy (God-given!) birth rate a genuine threat or is this danger the result our our egoism? Large families manage their resources far better than the forcibly (through contraceptives and abotions!) reduced ones.

In those families where couples set themselves a limit of 1-2 children, the offspring are turned into their parents’ idols (spoilt) or into their trophies (forced to reach standards, to perform, to succeed).

I wonder whether any honest scientist (sociologist, demographer, economist) has ever made a study proving something that seems very obvious to me…

…that the more children one family has, the less resources it consumes. Siblings are taught to share, while parents are stuggling to become economical.

On the contrary, contemporary hedonistic families (especially in a hedonistic country like today's Britain) with few or no children at all exhaust the planet, with all the delights of modern life they consider themselves entitled to.

Unknown to people who can only care of themselves, there’s an ongoing war on population. Some may say that I’m just a weirdo fooled by a conspiracy theory, but I simply can’t believe in the existence of coincidences.

Global warming hysterics claim that too many children harm the atmosphere, human right activists insist on recognizing abortion (assassination) as a fundamental right of the woman, and they succeeded in doing so.

Let aside the onslaught of broken families, alternative families, promiscuity, pornography, compulsory sexual education... Could all of these be merely innocent coincidences?

No, they are part of the prevalent ideology in today’s civilised world (?!), where those who bring to life as many children as God wants are irresponsible, while those who use contraceptives are sensible people who care about the planet.

This war on population is carried out on several fronts. Two of the main ones are the tireless abortionist agenda (offering murder as a lifestyle choice), and the attemps to curb immigration.

Also, on a subliminal front, women are gradually being seduced by the idea that childbearing is rather a distress than a bliss. They are taught to worship themselves, and the supposingly marvellous (but actually murderous) Pill.

Let us make no mistake: playing God, deciding when to have children (often in the late 30s or early 40s), after having aborted some, will have severe consequences!

And not only in the afterlife of which some are not aware, and others refuse to admit its existence – as if they could have refused to be born?!

After 40-50 decades of massive abortions, for countries like the UK and Romania there surely will be a reckoning day in the next 40-50 years. Only the Lord knows if a due punisment wouldn’t come even sooner.

Europe’s population is aging, and Britain makes no exception. When faced with such a dreadful perspective – countless milions of elders with no one to look after them – ‘wise thinkers’ no longer see immigration as problem, but as a solution for Britain.

Nevertheless, I remember having heard a completely different assesment of this challenge, while I was a Chevening Fellow: “All simulations show that migration is no solution to the aging problem.”

Jesus Christ is the light of the world because He, and He alone, is the true source of all that is good and righteous and holy in the world. God alone is the source of all that is good.
If you have the light of Jesus shining in your life, then let that light bring joy, and truth, and healing, and revelation to you - and let that light shine into all the world around you!
God wants us to be a clear windowpane so the light of Jesus shines through us to others.

Dear friend,

Sometimes the most obvious truths are obscured to some people soaking with a sinful life.

People refuse to see the obvious from the beauty of the world around.

They don't want to admit that the Creation speaks about its Maker, and rather believe the nonsense that it all happened 'by chance', throughout billions & billions of years blah-blah-blah...

For so many of our contemporaries, life, love & all the blessings we are surrounded by are 'accidents' - they refuse to admit that this is such a nonsense :-(

Refusing to accept the truth that unborn children are HUMAN BEINGS, not mere 'clusters of amorphous cells' is absolutely satanic.

Of course anyone can be saved, of course anyone can ultimately repent, however, I must sadly admit this implacable truth - most people who kill the uborn (and refuse to admit what a shameful murder that was) will probably go to hell.

It's very sad... May the Holy Trinity have mercy on us all, believers & unbelievers!
