Degrees of Outrage #10

It’s winter and the news networks are running around with their hair on fire reporting that it’s snowing.  Days after the Grammys millions of people have finally realized that Kanye West is an idiot.  Our President is calling climate change a bigger threat than ISIS.  I look around and wonder if anyone is still sane; knowing that I can’t be counted as one of the sane ones.  It seems that just about everybody is mad about something but very few of us are willing to do anything about it.

In my country,where over 3,000 innocent children are murdered every day under the socialist Utopian myth of a woman’s right to choose to have her baby killed, most of my fellow Americans live their lives oblivious to the slaughter.  Most of them know that the abortion industry is big business in America, but choose to do nothing to protect unborn children.  They can tell you how many inches of snow will be falling in Boston tomorrow and they know exactly what Kanye West said after the Grammys, but ask them what their opinion is on the legal killing of innocent children, and most of them have none.

Imagine ISIS beheading another human being every 26 seconds. That’s over a million human beings having their lives violently cut short every year.  The entire world would be mobilized against them.  Planned Parenthood and America’s abortion industry kills that many innocent children every year, and in the process receives over half a billion dollars from the U.S. taxpayers.  Liberal politicians and parasitic organizations like NARAL and the NAF fight to make it easier to kill your child, and far too many of us aren’t interested.  Many of us choose to look the other way in the face of evil, in the hope that someone else will do what has to be done.

We’re happy to feign outrage over Kanye’s latest show of cranial rectal insertion, but when it comes to standing up for a righteous cause, count most of us out.  We’ve come to expect no consequences for our actions, while failing to recognize the consequences of our inaction.  We see our individual wants and needs as more important than saving the life of someone we don’t know.  As a society we’ve fallen into the mentality of me, me, me.  If it doesn’t affect me, it’s not important.  I contend that all of us are affected by every innocent life that is cut short.

When it comes right down to it, all we have is each other as we spin around a mediocre star on a tiny blue planet in the midst of an endless universe.  We have a moral obligation to protect one another and to look out for the weakest among us.  At one point, we were all unborn children.  We were allowed to be born and were never guaranteed happiness and success; but we were given our chance.  In a world where there is far too much anger, we need to look at the big picture.  If we feel we have to be mad about something, let’s channel our anger into good works and work to make the tiny planet earth a better place for everyone.

    When I wrote this piece a year ago, #10 in a series titled Degrees of Outrage, Kanye West had just shown the world, one more time, how to be an egotistical, narcissistic, asshole. President Obama had just proclaimed that Climate Change represented the greatest threat to America, and the death toll in America’s abortion mills was adding 3,000 more dead babies every day to the millions they had already killed.
    We tend to look at most things in life from the perspective of whether it affects our lives in any way. If thousands of babies are killed every day, and we don’t see them killed or don’t know the people killing them, we tend to focus on our immediate concerns, and assume that someone else will stop the killing.
    In an unimaginably immense Universe, all our trials and tribulations take place on a tiny blue speck of matter called earth. A condition of our very existence requires us all to be confined to this tiny planet. Since we have nowhere else to go, doesn’t it make sense that we all take care of each other, respect all our fellow humans’ right to life, and simply try to get along?
