murders "flowed" from Leninism.
Certainly Stalin differed from Lenin in the length of his time as
dictator--some 25 years to Lenin's six--and he also had the advantage of
greater technology. As a result, Stalin's murderous statistics are
superior to Lenin's. And yet Lenin contributed so very much.
Very few of Stalin's policies were
without roots in Leninism: it was Lenin who built the first camps; Lenin who
set off artificial famine as a political weapon; Lenin who disbanded the
last vestige of democratic government, the Constituent Assembly, and devised
the Communist Party as the apex of a totalitarian structure; Lenin who first
waged war on the intelligentsia and on religious believers,

ALFRED KINSEY (Sex
(a former employee of the Kinsey Institute) “…describes the Indiana
University professor as a "secular evangelist," "a scolding preacher rather
than a scientist," and a "covert revolutionary" who "used
science to lay siege to middle class morality."
Kinsey, explains Jones,
engaged in "a public crusade for private reasons."
Those "private reasons"
included a bizarre sex-life that involved wife-swapping, homosexual
group-sex, an extreme masochism that helped destroy his health, and,
perhaps, pedophilia. At every turn these "private reasons"—perversity
and a need for dominance over others—permeated his "scientific" work.”
researchers also served as his sex partners.
Their zeal for sex played a
role in leading their research to focus on people who deviated from societal
standards—pimps, prostitutes, homosexuals, imprisoned sex offenders,
etc.—and away from those who conformed. Kinsey’s "methodology and sampling
technique virtually guaranteed that he would find what he was looking for,"
perversion was often self-destructive.
For most of his
life, he masturbated with a "toothbrush" inserted in his urethra. At one
point, Jones conveys, Kinsey crawled into a bathtub and "circumcised himself
without the benefit of amnesia." Perhaps most disturbing of Jones’
revelations is an incident that happened during the college professor’s
final years. Jones explains, "he tied a strong, tight knot around his
scrotum with one end of the rope dangling from the pipe overhead. The other
end he wrapped around his hand. Then, he climbed up on a chair, and jumped
off, suspending himself in midair." The self-inflicted torture would
hospitalize him for weeks and, ironically, may have contributed to the
untimely death of this champion of "sexual freedom" two years later."

PETER SINGER (Bioethicist)
Singer, by trying to be more broadminded than is reasonable, has created a
philosophy that actually dehumanizes people, reducing them to points of
consciousness that are indistinguishable from those of many non-human
Therefore, what is of
primary importance for the Princeton bioethicists is not the
of the being in question, but its
of life. But
this process of dehumanization leads directly to discrimination against
those whose quality of life is not sufficiently developed. Singer has little
choice but to divide humanity into those who have a preferred state of life
from those who do not. In this way, his broad egalitarianism decays into a
reject belief in God we must give up the idea that life on this planet has
some preordained meaning. Life as a whole has no meaning. Life began, as the
best available theories tell us, in a chance combination of gasses; it then
evolved through random mutation and natural selection. All this just
happened; it did not happen to any overall purpose. Now that it has resulted
in the existence of beings who prefer some states of affairs to others,
however, it may be possible for particular lives to be meaningful. In this
sense some atheists can find meaning in life.
Life can be meaningful for an atheist when he is able to spend his life in a
"preferred state." The atheistic
perspective here does not center on
people, however, it centers on happiness.
preference for happiness over people engenders a rather chilling logic. It
is not human life or the existing human being that is good, but the
"preferred state." Human life is not sacrosanct, but a certain kind of life
can be "meaningful." If one baby is disabled, does it not make sense to kill
it and replace it with one who is not and "therefore" has a better chance
for happiness? "When the death of the
disabled infant," writes Singer, "will lead to the birth of another infant
with better prospects of a happy life, the total amount of happiness will be
greater if the disabled infant is killed.
According to this avant garde thinker, unborn
babies or neonates, lacking the requisite consciousness to qualify as
persons, have less right to continue to live than an adult gorilla. By the
same token, a suffering or disabled child would have a weaker claim not to
be killed than a mature pig. Singer writes, in Rethinking Life and Death:
Human babies are not born self-aware or
capable of grasping their lives over time. They are not persons. Hence
their lives would seem to be no more worthy of protection that the life of
And writing specifically about Down syndrome
babies, he advocates trading a disabled or defective child (one who is
apparently doomed to too much suffering) for one who has better prospects
We may not want a child to start on life's
uncertain voyage if the prospects are clouded. When this can be known at a
very early stage in the voyage, we may still have a chance to make a fresh
start. This means detaching ourselves from the infant who has been born,
cutting ourselves free before the ties that have already begun to bind us
to our child have become irresistible. Instead of going forward and
putting all our effort into making the best of the situation, we can still
say no, and start again from the beginning."
