The Death Cult Is As Old As Time. It Won a Victory in New York This Week.

Nearly six centuries ago, the tottering and sclerotic Chimú imperium desperately sought the favor of the gods. Its priests and its officialdom took five hundred children — took, not necessarily seized, as the Chimú citizenry were largely of the same mind — and slaughtered them all. The killings were a grim horror: the children were held down by the hands of attendants as the priests did their work. First a deep horizontal cut, slashing bone, upon the chest of the still-living and aware child. Then a hand and short blade plunged into the open wound, and the beating heart was ripped out. Five hundred innocents dead in conscious agony. It didn’t work. The gods, being something other than that, were silent.
The Chimú were overrun and destroyed by the Inca, who were themselves in turn eradicated by the Spanish, whose efforts ending pre-Columbian American human sacrifice and the religions that commanded it ought to be counted as a service to mankind. Now the principal thing we know of the Chimú is this mass slaughter of children. We have found their graves. We know some of their great and glorious worthies, their kings and princes, their rich and powerful, their cities and realm. We mostly know of the least among them, their little children, and what they did to them. It is ample testament to who they were.
There was a way of life they wished to preserve for themselves, and somehow they persuaded themselves that it was unsustainable and unthinkable without the deaths of others: adults to be sure, but especially children.
Why did they do it? We have sufficient answer from the comparable practices of child sacrifice among the contemporary Mexica, or the Canaanites of previous centuries. There was a way of life they wished to preserve for themselves, and somehow they persuaded themselves that it was unsustainable and unthinkable without the deaths of others: adults to be sure, but especially children. None of these cultures could have known of Dostoevsky of course, but they faced the same question he had posed to Alyosha Karamazov: “Imagine that you are creating a fabric of human destiny with the object of making men happy in the end, giving them peace and rest at last, but that it was essential and inevitable to torture to death only one tiny creature—that baby beating its breast with its fist, for instance—and to found that edifice on its unavenged tears, would you consent to be the architect on those conditions?” Alyosha said no.
The Chimú, the Mexica, the Canaanites said yes. Not just them, of course. A meaningful cohort of Germans actively assisting, or passively acquiescing, to the Holocaust accepted the same logic: they must die that we may live as we wish. It’s a pity but this is what the gods — or whatever we are empowering as our gods, be it spurious laws of racial destiny or “progress” — demand. This is the fallibility of the human condition. It is also how we understand the New York State legislature — and the Democratic abortion cult — now.

The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
