The pervasiveness of Evil

For those willing to open their eyes, or have the ability to critically think, or to “open their hearts”, the proof of evil is all around us.  The “Alfie” incident this week highlighted the pervasiveness of evil in man.  The British government refused to allow the family of Alfie to try to keep him alive.  Yes, maybe there was no real chance, maybe Alfie was catatonic and “brain dead”, maybe no chance of a “quality life”, but those were the choices of the family, not the government.  If the British government wanted to save money, since the U.K. has a government funded healthcare system, then make the family sign a waiver releasing the British government of future funding obligations and any future responsibilities and liabilities toward the child.  Relatively straight forward solution, the parents take their child and seek help from those willing to help.  But the Brits didn’t allow this and now the child is dead...

How heartless is someone to prevent a parent, loved one, or even a friend to try to save someone they love?  Then the cowardliness of the British people, few protests, no uprising, no one tried to save the child...  What if this had been a non-white family?  What if a non-Christian family?  What if it had been an elite?  Was this a racist, anti-Christian, anti-commoner decision?

Evil comes in many forms and places.  The doctors and medical staff that allowed this to happen and made their snide remarks are cruel, soulless people.  They will suffer the consequences of this one day and cannot say “we tried everything”.

The British government is a soulless, leftist, charicature.  Silly British dystopian movies such as “Children of Man” or “V for Vendatta” showed a future where the Right were the boogeyman, but the truth is it is the Left.  No free speech, no compassion, no freedom to defend yourself.  How soon before the few real Christians remaining in the U.K. come under persecution?

Some of us mourn for a Britannia that maybe was idealized in one too many Anglophile movies, shows, books.  Some of our ancestors rebelled against the British crown and won we Americans the relative freedom we have today.

Evil isn’t always obvious.  Evil lies, manipulates, promises easy succcess and rewards.  Remember this, don’t idealize the U.K. and the soulless Leftist evil that country now represents.  Be a beacon for hope, goodness, and righteousness.
