September and all the schools and colleges have returned or are returning to begin the new academic year. I can still recall the excitement from what is now to me the far distant past, the trepidation, and the feeling of newness, years ago, the return to school from the long summer break of freedom and play.
Looking back, it does appear that children had more freedom fifty or sixty years ago than the young are afforded today. Indeed, they were different times. Another privilege was, I'm sure, that we inhabited a world that was governed by a generation who had seen and experienced the horrors of two world wars, not to mention the depression of the 1930s. Such profound events and times, now etched forever in the annals of world history also left its mark on those who had lived through them. They looked forward to the future with hope for the wellbeing of the post war generations. In these present times, now that I am old, I think of our children as they start the new school year and wonder what the future may hold for them. They do not have the benefit as we did, of those past generations whose wisdom was tempered in the fire of war and hardship; they are no longer with us.
In the 1930s the German people were beguiled with a vision of a new world order; the Third Reich. We are told that Adolf Hitler was a madman. But he was a madman only in the sense that he had a utopian vision for the German people, a false vision of heaven come to earth, an earth peopled by a 'master race', all living no doubt, in a perfect world. Similarly, in communist propaganda, the ideal is presented in the image of socialism, an egalitarian society in which the dictatorship of the proletariat will gradually give way to the dissolution of the state.
The story of the Tower of Babel is a warning against such folly. It's a story of the arrogance of power. The story of the Tower of Babel is also the story of a great sin. In this story, the sin is not simply about turning away from God, but also about man wishing to displace God, to become God himself. (Genesis 11:1-9). History has shown that the pursuit of such dreams brings much suffering and bloodshed.
We have to guard against such wrongful thinking. Unfortunately, at the present time this sin has once again gained a foothold within nearly all the institutions of our society. Last month, for example, I commented on the perverse and deliberate policies that brought the deaths of thousands of elderly people in England's care homes, all done in the name of ‘protecting the NHS.'
Now, as the schools move forward into the new academic year, we see the continuation of this wilful arrogance and wickedness. It is that of a government and a prime minister who for their own vested political reasons have even taken it upon themselves to ignore the advice of their own Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI). On 3rd September 2021, The Telegraph reported that the JCVI, 'had failed to recommend Covid-19 vaccines for healthy 12–15-year-olds'. The article went on to report that in the view of the JCVI, 'it was uncertain' what the possible impact of the myocarditis, that is heart inflammation, resulting from their vaccination, would be over the medium to long term. The JCVI said that the potential risks outweighed the benefits of vaccinating that age group. Six days later, 9th September 2021, The Telegraph reported:
'Teenage boys are six times more likely to suffer from heart problems from the vaccine than be hospitalised from Covid-19, a major study has found'
'Children who face the highest risk of a “cardiac adverse event” are boys aged between 12 and 15 following two doses of a vaccine, according to new research from the US.'
However, the same article concluded with these words:
'But ministers are understood to be keen to give the children’s vaccine roll out the green light, and the NHS has already started recruiting thousands of vaccinators for schools.'
There is very obviously no rationale for giving this vaccination to children aged between twelve and fifteen years of age. In the parliamentary debate surrounding the Covid-19 Vaccination Damage Bill, Sir Christopher Chope MP said:
'There is a lot more damage being done to our citizens as a result of covid-19 vaccinations than in any other vaccination programme in history. That does not mean to say that it is not worthwhile, and I am certainly not an anti-vaxxer or anything like that, but what is important is that, if people do the right thing, they should not be denied access to compensation.'
Further on his speech Chope revealed that the current legislation makes provision of a maximum payment of only £120,000, together with a threshold of 60% disablement. As a result, fewer than 2% of applications are successful.
More to the point, the Conservative MP for Yeovil, Marcus Fysh, speaking in the House of Commons on Monday 13th September, said that the Chief Medical Officer, Chris Whitty, should step down over his decision to roll out the covid vaccine to children, 'without good clinical reason' because 'he does not deserve the confidence of the country.'
In consideration of the above, we would be bound to ask why anyone, with any common sense, who has a healthy child, a child who is virtually at no risk from Covid-19, why they would accede to their child being vaccinated? It would surely be perverse. But in the undermining of parental rights the government has made it clear that the child, not the parent will be able to make the decision. This kind of thing is symptomatic of a visible, rising totalitarianism not just in Britain but throughout the western world. To put it bluntly it is the agenda of the 'Build Back Better' brigade. Such people, the globalist elites, are the builders of the new Tower of Babel. Like their predecessors they are the advocates for the impossible utopia that will ultimately fail and like the pagans of old, they seem only too willing to sacrifice children on the altar of their own ambitions. (Jeremiah 32:35).
My best wishes as always.
