The slaughtered generation (letter)


by Dr David van Gend

News Weekly, February 12, 2005
Sir,

There is something fundamentally wrong with a system, wrote George Orwell, that needs to be built on a mountain of corpses. He wrote of the Soviet slaughter. This week we read of two other such systems.

The mountain of corpses at Auschwitz is the final indictment of the Nazi system, condemned again at last week's commemoration.

Yet we dare not look down at the mountain of tiny corpses upon which our own social system stands condemned - admittedly smaller corpses, but far more numerous, and therefore a far bigger mountain: the necessary heap of our own nameless young, trampled underfoot by adults getting their snouts in the trough of our brutal sexual revolution.

So, on the same day that the UN in New York damns the Nazis, we read of protestors in Washington condemning the culling fields of unlimited abortion on the anniversary of Roe vs. Wade.

On such an alignment of evil anniversaries our own poet, Bruce Dawe, put it best in Final Solutions:

"Pray for those then who,
destined for the knife,
wore from the first
the yellow star of Life."


Dr David van Gend,
Toowoomba, Qld
