The Philosophy of Death

Horrifyingly, some fifty-seven million babies were aborted in their mothers’ wombs since the passage of Roe v. Wade forty-four years ago. There’s much that can be said of abortion—the thinking that justifies it, how it has become a stock response among many, and the hardening of society’s collective conscience because of this.               A voice for […]

The question is often asked regarding the Holocaust in Nazi Germany: “How was it possible that otherwise upstanding Germans could have allowed such a thing to happen?” How could they knowingly have let thousands, even millions of the Jewish people be shipped off to concentration camps for gassing and cremation?
