The Children are the Greatest Threat

In Charles Dickens' famous story, the spirit of Christmas Present shows Scrooge two children hidden under his robe. The girl," he says, is want, and the boy is ignorance. Although he warns Scrooge that both are dangerous, he adds "most of all, beware this boy."

Dickens, of course, was writing in a day when deadly weapons were less readily available, even to the poor. Today, the spirit might advise Scrooge to beware both equally.

Right around half of the world's children today do not live as children. They are slaves, some are even called slaves, others are called indentured, some are called "migrants" or "agricultural workers," and many are called "guaranteed clean virgin, you want all night or just little while, I get for you cheap."

Well over half the world's children will carry with them to adulthood, should they reach it, the one overriding lesson society has taught them: human life has no value, and theirs has even less.

This will be the guiding principle of the majority of the world's next generation, from Palestine to the Texas panhandle, from the auction houses of Pashtunistan where little girls can be purchased for $100 (It is said that prior to the US invasion, the price was only a sack of rice. Amrika has improved the economy.), to the Minneapolis bus station, where little girls can be picked up for the price of a meal, and the eventual price of the commodity determined later, depending on the buyer.

If you need tomatoes picked in Florida, a couple of phone calls can produce an entire field crew for you, at a very reasonable price, and if you plan on a short season, upkeep costs are not a factor. Just send them out and work them, and when that bunch becomes unusable, bring in another. Much more economical than providing food and housing.

Naturally, conditions are not so luxurious in the Majority World, where savvy western investors can maximize revenues thanks to a labor force that hits the quarry or the sweatshop 3 or 4 years out of the (frequently raped) womb, and with a bit of rice gruel here and there, can provide nearly two decades of use, in many cases.

Is the United States the only country who profits from this? Hardly. It may, however, be the only country who could put a serious dent in it merely by refusing to profit from it.

But that would not be pragmatic. A free market is a basic American value, whether the commodity in question is food, medicine, or human beings. America rewards the wily entrepreneur who sees where the money is, and delivers the product to the buyer with the biggest wad in hand.

There would not even be a United States if it were not for that good old free market principle that empowered millions of human beings to become part of it in such a special way.

And still does, today. Must be doing something right, to last 200 years.

So why should Americans be so afraid of all those poor children? They are, after all, the weakest of the weak. The only voices who attempt to speak up for them are insignificant bleeding hearts who on closer examination frequently reveal themselves to be socialists, apologists for people who want to kill Americans, or both. Where is this terrible danger?

The answer: Everywhere. And all the bombs in the world cannot stay the hand of even one who decides to put into practice the lesson you have taught.

Actions like Sep 11 do not happen in a vaccuum. Long before those hijackers ever stepped foot on the planes the damage had been done. They were brainwashed with the same type of garbage propaganda that is spewed from Fatwa's weblog.
Middle Eastern countries are so much more barbaric today and preAmercia than America can ever hope to be...America has only been around 230 years...who did you blame for everything before that Ductape? I am calling a Fatwa on your bullshit!
IMO - terrorist plain and simple. He is an Al queda operative who should be put in a cage on gitmo
My favorite..."In Defense of Holocaust Deniers"
I always thought that "The Enemy Within" was just a metaphore for liberalism, that is, until I encountered Ductape Fatwa. He should be in an orange jumpsuit for sure.
ductape is either a commie, al queda, or a deep cover mole
Tells you something about this asshole doesn't it. He's really serious.
I believe that DF is nothing but a Republican plant...
Ductape is a commie, a terrorist, and he drinks blood too. He drinks Capitalist blood. He eats unborn babies too
Give me your address and I'll send you $20 and a thank-you note for taking your hatred elsewhere.
A terrorist with a sense of humor!
He ain't nuthin' but shit
