What happens to the children of tyrants?

Truth Over Tyranny: Biblical wisdom for defeating the Technocrats.
These are my insights for defeating the Transhumanist Technocracy movement, based on the teachings of Rabbi Jonathan Sacks, of blessed memory, on the weekly Bible portion.

Much news is made of the ongoing attacks by the “woke left” on our children. Every day we hear of attempts to cause gender confusion… sexualize them… foment hatred between blacks and whites… castigate America and the West… cut off their parents… give the State full control…

All this leads us to wonder: what are the children like of those men and women who are so evil and psychotic, they would try to destroy the lives of other families? When a child grows up in a home filled with secular/Marxist/elitist propaganda, how do they end up?

Well, the news gives us a good idea about this as well. They end up like Hunter Biden, leading depraved and decrepit lives. They end up “aborting” their babies right up until birth. They end up mutilating their bodies with “gender-affirmation” surgery. They end up “snowflakes,” getting triggered by any challenge. They end up embracing their Digital ID more than their family name. They end up joining Antifa and BLM, and destroying communities. They end up following the dictates of the “Party” and taking all the required drugs, including the vaxx designed to make them sterile.

They make death and destruction – especially their own destruction – a way of life. How sad and tragic. And how ironic. It seems that those people who seek to harm our children, are leading their own children to harm: mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and physically.

We have seen this before. It happened in Ancient Egypt, at the time God brought the Ten Plagues down on that country to liberate the Hebrews and make us His people. In his commentary on Parashat Bo called “Against Their Gods,” Rabbi Jonathan Sacks describes how with the plagues, God taught the Egyptians that what goes around, comes around.

Rabbi Sacks explains that with the plagues, God demonstrated that He has power not just over the Egyptians, but over their fake beliefs and gods:

“Not all the plagues were directed, in the first instance, against the Egyptians. Some were directed against things they worshipped as gods. That is the case in the first two plagues. The Nile was personified in ancient Egypt as the god Hapi and was worshipped as the source of fertility in an otherwise desert region. Offerings were made to it at times of inundation. The inundations themselves were attributed to one of the major Egyptian deities, Osiris. The plague of frogs would have been associated by the Egyptians with Heket, the goddess who was believed to attend births as a midwife, and who was depicted as a woman with the head of a frog.”

“The plagues were not only intended to punish Pharaoh and his people for their mistreatment of the Israelites, but also to show them the powerlessness of the gods in which they believed. What is at stake in this confrontation is the difference between myth – in which the gods are mere powers, to be tamed, propitiated or manipulated – and biblical monotheism, in which ethics (justice, compassion, human dignity) constitute the meeting point of God and humankind.”

God also drove home the lesson that His world is a just world:

“The symbolism of these plagues, often lost on us, would have been immediately apparent to the Egyptians. Two things now become clear. The first is why the Egyptian magicians declared, “This is the finger of God” (Ex. 8:15) only after the third plague, lice. The first two plagues would not have surprised them at all. They would have understood them as the work of Egyptian deities who, they believed, were sometimes angry with the people and took their revenge.”

“The second is the quite different symbolism the first two plagues were meant to have for the Israelites, and for us. As with the tenth plague, these were no mere miracles intended to demonstrate the power of the God of Israel, as if religion were a gladiatorial arena in which the strongest god wins. Their meaning was moral. They represented the most fundamental of all ethical principles, stated in the Noahide covenant in the words “He who sheds the blood of man, by man shall his blood be shed” (Gen. 9:6). This is the rule of retributive justice, measure for measure: As you do, so shall you be done to.”

The Tenth plague – the killing of the first born – was the way Pharaoh in particular would realize the error of his ways, in attempting to “depopulate” the Hebrews:

“By first ordering the midwives to kill all male Israelite babies, and then, when that failed, by commanding, “Every boy who is born must be cast into the Nile” (Ex. 1:22), Pharaoh had turned what should have been symbols of life (the Nile, which fed Egyptian agriculture, and midwives) into agents of death. The river that turned to blood, and the Heket-like frogs that infested the land, were not afflictions as such, but rather coded communications, as if to say to the Egyptians: reality has an ethical structure. See what it feels like when the gods you turned against the Israelites turn on you. If used for evil ends, the powers of nature will turn against man, so that what he does will be done to him in retribution. There is justice in history.”

“Hence the tenth plague, to which all the others were a mere prelude. Unlike all the other plagues, its significance was disclosed to Moses even before he set out on his mission, while he was still living with Jethro in Midian:”

“You shall say to Pharaoh: This is what the Lord says. “Israel is My son, My firstborn. I have told you to let My son go, that he may worship Me. If you refuse to let him go, I will kill your own firstborn son.”Ex. 4:22–23

“Whereas the first two plagues were symbolic representations of the Egyptian murder of Israelite children, the tenth plague was the enactment of retributive justice, as if heaven was saying to the Egyptians: You committed, or supported, or passively accepted the murder of innocent children. There is only one way you will ever realise the wrong you did, namely, if you yourself suffer what you did to others.”

Rabbi Sacks concludes by noting that a civilization that seeks to kill children, is itself destroyed:

“When God told Moses to say to Pharaoh, “My son, My firstborn, Israel,” He was saying: I am the God who cares for His children, not one who kills His children. The ninth plague was a divine act of communication that said: there is not only physical darkness but also moral darkness. The best test of a civilisation is to see how it treats children, its own and others’.”

It seems to me that we are witnessing a “tenth plague” of sorts today. In their zeal to “depopulate” the planet, the transhumanist technocrats are causing the most damage to their own, and the people who adopt their “climate change” ideology and other bogus ideas. At the end of the day, they will have depopulated themselves.

God is once again showing the world how things really work.
