Musings on Other Cultures VI: Infanticide

The murder of one’s newborn strikes Westerners as savagery—and it first glance, even I can fall into that trap. But those of us of a certain age can remember the insightful words of Professor Leonard Jeffries, Ph.D., who discovered the principle of “ice people” and “sun people”. You see, white people are ice people: Cold and insensitive oppressors of the black people—who are the warm, caring, and humanistic sun-people.

Dr. Jeffries words are now accepted scientific fact, and in the tradition of great scientists, I, Dr. Kurgman, Ph.D, Ph.D, Ph.D, will expand on these principles. (Incidentally, and speaking of nostalgia, do you recall Nobel Laureate Rigoberta Menchu Tum, who told of her suffering and consciousness-raising in “I, Rigoberta Menchu”? I pay tribute to her with phrases like, “I, Dr. Kurgman”.)

My theory (which is actually a fact waiting for an award) is that the further one gets from cold, bitter, white Ice People, the closer one gets to the real moral truths. Note that infanticide is not practiced by white people. Doesn’t that alone speak volumes about its legitimacy? That is, can’t we stop talking about race already, and instead concentrate on People of Color and their contributions? People, this isn’t about dead white history, this is about a living, breathing, and caring world community. A world community.

But even then, infanticide can be justified in the United $tates. (And yes, that was a deliberate spelling, as it is important to remember that we live in a society that is controlled by the filthy profits of illegitimate corporations, with many taking orders directly from Dick Cheney and the Zionists.)

Anyway, infanticide is a moral imperative allowed (if not required) by The Constitution, and codified by Roe vs. Wade. Put another way, if we can’t practice infanticide, then do we have any privacy rights? It’s our bodies, you primitive cave-dwelling right-wing Christian theocrats.

Sadly, we still have much to learn from our betters in other cultures.
