What a Waste

“What a waste!” is the indignant outcry evoked by the careless and unnecessary squandering of goods, money, and natural resources.

A Bankrupt Philosophy

Abortion, suicide, euthanasia. Society has reduced human life to a material, disposable commodity, as though mankind were constituted of merely tissues, bones, and atoms.

One Race, One Family

Mankind is not always good to its own. In fact, the historical record is a grievous attestation to its atrocities. Hitler’s Germany is but one example. A “superior race” wants to cleanse itself of a “degenerate race.” Others think in terms of white and black races, etc. But,
