Worldview Wars Online Course: The Culture of Death
How did a society come to see certain people as disposable? It did not happen over night, and it is not an accident.
The ‘culture of death’ emerges whenever certain principles are accepted and acted on within a society. Abortion on Demand is a particularly contentious and visible manifestation of these principles, but it is important to understand that the principles came first, and are driving many other issues of our day. Euthanasia and assisted suicide are well known examples, but less well known, but equally of concern, are developments in health care and bioethics.
This six week, online course, takes us back 200 years to the time of Malthus and arcs through Darwin, Galton, Sanger, Hitler, into more familiar names such Peter Singer.
The course begins with the question, “Why do we abort the disabled?” but the answers to that question are the same answers to other questions, such as, “Why do we withhold care from the old?” Upon completion of this course, you will spot these answers offered everywhere, such as in health care rationing, population control, and ‘climate change.’
